Do we guess on what it is your script is having problems with or do you want to post an example of it so we can help you? GUICtrlRead($ComboBox) will return the Control $ComboBox's text that is currently visible.

What part of post a working example are you not understanding? Just comment where you and what you want what to do.

$var = GUICtrlRead($ComboBox)
run($var)

Does that work for you? If it doesn't, need more info.

oh srry, misread it :$

combo box:

$combo_map = GUICtrlCreateCombo("Select Map", 8, 56, 137, 21, $CBS_DROPDOWNLIST)

adds a ini value to the combo box:

_GUICtrlComboAddString ($combo_map,$map1)

launch the game with teh combo box var:

$launchgame = "mm.exe +map " & $combo_map

this is what i had :P

Here this took me a couple of minutes, maybe it will give you an idea:

$MainGUI = GUICreate('MyGui', 200, 100)
$ComboBox = GUICtrlCreateCombo('', 10, 10, 180, 150, 0x0003)
GUICtrlSetData($ComboBox, @SystemDir & '\notepad.exe|' & @SystemDir & '\calc.exe')
$Button = GUICtrlCreateButton('Run', 75, 35, 50, 30)

GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case - 3
            Exit
        Case $Button
            If GUICtrlRead($ComboBox) <> '' Then _
                Run('"' & GUICtrlRead($ComboBox) & '"')
    EndSwitch
WEnd

amanda089's example looks right... Just make sure that mm.exe is in the same directory as the script or you us the full path to it's location. And use quotes around $var in case there are spaces in the path.

Edit:

I better itterate:

Run('mm.exe +map "' & $var & '"')

Your syntax is incorrect:

(Look at $launchgame = $launchgame = ) Anything seem weird there?

Case $msg = $button_launch ;launch button presserd
   $launchgame = "mm.exe +map '" & GUICtrlRead($combo_map) & "'"
    Run($launchgame)
Think about the layer there... you want it to read $launchgame only when you press launch... so put it after Case $msg = $button (and you don't need to put $launchgame = $launchgame = ... SciTe should have shown that as an error. Edited by SmOke_N

I thought about commenting on that error, but figured he would figure it out once he tried to run the script.

i tried it and it didnt worked :P

i tried using a bat file that looks like this:

"mm.exe" +map mm_smallbox

and that worked :s

heres my full (probably crappy)script maybe there is something wrong with it:

I asked this before, is mm.exe in the same directory you are running your script from?

yes its is

i wrote something to check it:

;checks for mm.exe

If FileExists("mm.exe") Then

Else

MsgBox(0,"Error", "mm.exe is NOT found, please move the launcher to the Dark Messiah root folder")

Exit

EndIf

i was amazed it worked :P

it works halfly, it launches the game but goes to the main menu (sign of no +map behind it or a wrong option)

And you're positive that +map is the right switch?

Also, you would make your life alot easier if you started using arrays..

Example:

This

;read ini entries
$map1 = IniRead("dr_cmaps.ini","maps","map1","no map entry found")
$map2 = IniRead("dr_cmaps.ini","maps","map2","no map entry found")
$map3 = IniRead("dr_cmaps.ini","maps","map3","no map entry found")
$map4 = IniRead("dr_cmaps.ini","maps","map4","no map entry found")
$map5 = IniRead("dr_cmaps.ini","maps","map5","no map entry found")
$map6 = IniRead("dr_cmaps.ini","maps","map6","no map entry found")
$map7 = IniRead("dr_cmaps.ini","maps","map7","no map entry found")
$map8 = IniRead("dr_cmaps.ini","maps","map8","no map entry found")
$map9 = IniRead("dr_cmaps.ini","maps","map9","no map entry found")
$map10 = IniRead("dr_cmaps.ini","maps","map10","no map entry found")oÝ÷ Ø*.Ð^jëh×6;read ini entries
Dim $map[11]
For $iCC = 1 To 10
    $map[$iCC] = IniRead("dr_cmaps.ini","maps","map" & $iCC,"no map entry found")
NextoÝ÷ Ø    ÝN¬jëh×6;add maps to the combo box
_GUICtrlComboAddString ($combo_map,$map1)
_GUICtrlComboAddString ($combo_map,$map2)
_GUICtrlComboAddString ($combo_map,$map3)
_GUICtrlComboAddString ($combo_map,$map4)
_GUICtrlComboAddString ($combo_map,$map5)
_GUICtrlComboAddString ($combo_map,$map6)
_GUICtrlComboAddString ($combo_map,$map7)
_GUICtrlComboAddString ($combo_map,$map8)
_GUICtrlComboAddString ($combo_map,$map9)
_GUICtrlComboAddString ($combo_map,$map10)oÝ÷ Ø*.ÖÞjëh×6;add maps to the combo box
For $iCC = 1 To 10
_GUICtrlComboAddString ($combo_map,$map[$iCC])
Next
