Terminating a script instantly upon player death...

Recommended Posts

Assuming this can be done, of course, what would be the best way to do this?



Thanks guys.

int playerDies = 0;

script 1 DEATH
{
    playerDies = 1;
}

script 2 (void)
{
    while(1)
    {
        Delay(10);
        if (playerDies)
            terminate;
    }
}
Is one way of doing it, if I interpreted your question correctly.

Alternatively:

script 1 DEATH {
    ACS_Terminate (0, 2);
}
The above would terminate script 2 when the player dies unless the script was triggered with ACS_ExecuteAlways or was an ENTER script.

Thanks for the replies :)


btw, anyone, what is an ENTER script? I have always used (void) or OPEN scripts, and can't actually find out exactly what an ENTER script is. Probably the reason it doesn't seem to say on wiki is coz it is so obvious as to what it is, but heh, everything I know about scripting/programming I learned from ACS. Which means I missed all the basics.

An ENTER script runs any time a player enters the map, whether by starting a new game, entering the level, joining a game in progress, or respawning. In single-player, it's functionally equivalent to an OPEN script, but in cooperative or other multiplayer modes, the distinction is important.
