Placing the Terrain

If (Ord(item)=71)
    Comment: 71 = "G" -- the gun
    Set Variable: "name" = "gun"
    Set Variable: "name" = "t"&tnum

Here we assigned each item about to be duplicated its name. Since the gun is the only character that needs a special name (in this demo it does not...) the rest of the characters simply get a unique name.

End If
If (Ord(item)<%lt%><%gt>48)

Since there is no movie clip called "0" I could just let the code run anyways and it would work. But the extra CPU time to run the code can be avoided here. So I do.

Comment: 48 = "0" (no terrain) -- no use wasting CPU power to set up nothing.

Set Variable: "tnum" = tnum+1
If (tnum<%gt%>2999)
    Set Variable: "tnum" = 2500
