Function Syntax

effect to_effect(int convert )

effect to_effect(string convert )

effect to_effect(skill convert )

  • convert is the int, string or skill to convert

When supplied an int or string, returns the effect that corresponds to the specified parameter convert. When supplied a skill, this returns the effect that is given when the skill convert is cast on a player.

Following example tells which buffs you are missing but could have.

void buffs_check() {
int amount;
boolean have_buff;
boolean[skill] active_buffs, bot_buffs, castable_buffs;
   foreach it in $skills[] {
      amount = have_effect(to_effect(it));
      if (amount == 0)
         have_buff = false;
      else have_buff = true;
      if (have_buff) //Currently have the effect active
      if (it.buff == true && !have_buff && it.class != $class[none] && it.level != -1 && it.dailylimit == -1 && it != $skill[Spiky Shell] && it != $skill[Antibiotic Saucesphere]) //buff bot buffs
      if (have_skill(it) && it.combat != true && !have_buff && to_effect(it) != $effect[none]) //buffs you can cast on yourself
   print("You currently have the following buffs active:", "red");
   foreach it in active_buffs
      print(""+it+"", "green");   
   print("You could get the following buffs from a buff bot:", "red");
   foreach it in bot_buffs
      print(""+it+"", "blue");   
   print("You could cast the following buffs on yourself:", "red");
   foreach it in castable_buffs
      print(""+it+"", "purple");


If convert is an effect that cannot be given by use of a skill, and is supplied as such, or no match is found for a supplied string or int type, this function returns $effect[ none ].
