Hotspot Porblem

Postby Rocket_Ronnie » Mon Mar 03, 2008 6:16 pm

Hi everyone , Im new here and I have a question. I search in forum but I cant find anyting fit or maybe I missed it.
so, how to disable hotspot after using something from inventory? I click "manage inventory item" and then dag&drop "item" on hotspot what I want to disable after drop item on hotspot, but in "hotspot properites" (example: key in hotspot) in "action" theres no option to disable pernamently. How can I do taht? any scripts?

I dont wanna go to another frame because this part of game is related with other frames and If I use this option I must duplicate all frames of this section of game.

Maybe is another way to do something like this? Someone have any idea?

Hello and welcome to the Forums

Why to hide that hotspot? I think it wouldn't spoil anything if it stayed there...
Anyway, go to the hotspot which gives you the item.
In the advanced tab select execute VBS and enter this simple code
Code: Select all
TakenItem=1

Go to VBS Variables and create an integer variable called TakenItem
Go To manage inventory items, drag and drop the item you want in the hotspot(s) you want to disable.
Go to advanced.
Enter these lines:
Code: Select all
If TakenItem=1 Then
If HasItem("key") = "False" Then
Hotspot(Action.GetHotspotNumber).Enabled="False"
End If
End If

Remember to change "key" with "your_item"
Lastly go to VBS Procedures, copy paste this:
Code: Select all
Function HasItem(ItemName)

HasItem = "False"
For Each X in InventoryItemObject
If X.Tag = ItemName Then
HasItem = "True"
End If
Next

End Function


It worked for me so it should work in your project too...

oh sorry I forget to write HIDE and disable , this hide is most important.

I added picture which shows what result I mean :)
Original picture in frame is without padlock and then hotspot with padlock. When player drop key on this padlock then hotspot must hide and disable pernamently because when someone back to this frame must see show-case without padlock.

Like I wrote in last post I cant use function "go to another frame" because links on every frame aim at the end to this frame so then I must create copies of every frame with new links.

Sorry for my english:P I hope everything is clear now.

No candle, he wants to use an item on that hotspot not click it.
Sorry for my code Rocket_Ronnie, you are right, it temporarily disables the hotspot. To disable it permanently fix this:
Code: Select all
If TakenItem=1 Then
If HasItem("key") = "False" Then
Hotspot(Action.GetHotspotNumber).Enabled="False"
'add this line to the code:
Padlock_unlocked=1
End If
End If

Create an integer variable called Padlock_unlocked, go to the padlock hotspot and under variables check this hotspot must be enabled only if the following variables are 0. Enter the Padlock_unlocked variable there and done.

I need to DROP an item and then hide and disable, this box show action when the hotspot is clicked.

When I click "Manage inventory" then drop "key" on hotspot with padlock appear "hotspot properites" (key in hotspot) in "action" theres no option to disable pernamently.

Something is wrong, hotspot won't hide :/ Code everywhere is like You wrote me, I checked it. hmm

Global procedure

Code: Select all
Function HasItem(ItemName)
HasItem = "False"
For Each X in InventoryItemObject
If X.Tag = ItemName Then
HasItem = "True"
End If
Next

End Function


hotspot with "key"

Code: Select all
TakenItem=1


VBS on item drag&drop

Code: Select all
If TakenItem=1 Then
If HasItem("key") = "False" Then
Hotspot(Action.GetHotspotNumber).Enabled="False"
Padlock_unlocked=1
End If
End If


Integer variables: TakenItem & Padlock_unlocked

on hotspot with padlock properites: variables/the hotspot must be enable
d only if "Padlock_unlocked" value 0
Where is bug?

Make sure your item's internal name is spelled right. If for example it's Key and not key, then that is causing the bug.
Did you check the debug session in runtime to see if all variables are set right?
You can also use the "change variable value" under variables when drag&drop the item to set Padlock_unlocked=1


I 'm attaching a sample project, download it and see what's wrong with your project (be sure to check my projects vars, procedures and everything)

Hi,

I guess this is solved now, but, just to clarify in case someone else reads this topic, what you want to do can be done without any scripting, using only the options that are under the "variables" tab.

(Please correct me if I missed something)

It would be usefull if there was an option in the Actions Tab of drag n drop item on hotspot.
It could be done without so much scripting but not without any scripting at all I think.

Yep, now that I see it, it can be done without any scripting at all, forgive me for not noticing that before.

You can use Keyguard 3.0 plugin to show text over hotspot or you can create two hotspots instead of one, making the first showing the text, then disappearing so that the second (going to frame) is clickable
