feature request: add INSERT variable to ALTER_EFFECT
« on: April 17, 2019, 09:11:30 PM »
CLONE_EFFECT has a string variable for INSERT that can control where the cloned effect goes; the older ADD_SPELL_EFFECT and similar macros have INSERT_POINT integer variables. 

With ALTER_EFFECT, there does not seem to be a way to simply move an effect to a different position in the stack.  I can't even use CLONE_EFFECT followed by DELETE_EFFECT because the latter macro does not seem to have a way to control which instance will be deleted. 

Any reason why ALTER_EFFECT can't use an INSERT variable just like CLONE_EFFECT does?

These functions just live in the WEIDU source code; you can alter them yourself and INCLUDE it if you want to. (Cam wrote them, I think, so you could also ask him nicely.)

You can also move an effect by CLONEing it with a placeholder opcode (say, 999), DELETEing the original, then ALTERing the 999 back to the original opcode.
