I was wondering if anyone knows a way to have a procedure happen exactly 50% of the time. I'm not taking about using prob(50) or pick(A,B) or whatever.
For example I'd like a projectile to move 2 steps, then create another object. Any ideas?

Check the DM Reference entry for the % operator. It simply gives the remainder of A divided by B.
In the example I provided, it checks if A%B is 0, which is the case in even numbers divided by 2.

Name a single even number that, divided by 2, leaves a remainder that is not 0.
