Welcome to the homepage for frontend scripting in Total War. Here you can find resources and guidance for the creation of scripts that will run in the frontend.
|Relevant in Frontend|
Not much script tends to run in the frontend. The game automatically loads the file
script\frontend_scripted.lua when the frontend is started. Any intended frontend scripts can be placed in, or loaded from, this file.
Historic uses for scripting in the frontend:
- Powering animation sequences made in UI to be shown prior to launching a historic battle (Fall of the Samurai/Rome2).
- Opting player in to tutorial if they've never played the game (Warhammer).
- Setting up an initial loading screen for the player (Warhammer).
