Execute script when room is clear, how?

Recommended Posts

Hey all!


Basically I have this room with 4 doors. One door opens, 5 monsters come out, next door opens, repeat process. The script works, however, when multiple monsters are killed simultaneously, the script doesn't seem to register every kill. It only registers one.

 

Here is how I did it:

 

Every monster executes the "processingKills" script when killed (Using action 80).

 

The script:

script "processingKills" (void) 
{
	int doorDelay = 80;
	trapRoomKills++;
	print(i: trapRoomKills);
	if (trapRoomKills == 4) {
		delay(doorDelay);
		Door_Open(30, 64);
	}
	if (trapRoomKills == 9) {
		delay(doorDelay);
		door_open(31, 64);
	}

How can I make it so that simultanious kills are registered properly? When I kill 3 monsters with a rocket, it should count as 3 kills rather than just 1.

 

I have a history in programming. No need to hold back in terms of code languages.

Use ACS_ExecuteAlways on the monsters instead of ACS_Execute.

Done, that did the trick. Thank you

It works in this case, but it's not good practice as you could end up with thousands of scripts running at the same time if you use it carelessly.

 

I'm not speaking from experience, oh no sir. I have never managed to grind ZDoom to a halt doing that.

I disagree. It's usually helpful and harmless. The problem of "thousands of scripts running" should be prevented by not using such design that calls so many scripts in the first place, and even that would be OK if said scripts terminated more or less immediately (instead of staying in infinite/indefinite loops).
