Script to limit players inventory doesn't work [solved]

Postby Mystery » Mon Feb 20, 2006 3:23 am

I used the script from the AM Help to limit the players inventory and replaced only the number and name of item:

If VAR1 < 6 Then
Action.AddItem "Dollar"
VAR1 = VAR1 + 1
Else
Message "You cannot carry more than 6 items." + VbCrLf + "Throw the items that you don't need into the bin."
End If

The message comes to the right time (and keeps on coming everytime I pick up an item) but I can still collect items to infinity...
Did I miss something?

Hi,

You probably have the "add item" still enabled on the hotspot in the GUI.

Make sure "VAR1" is a global variable.

Kind regards,

Thank you for your answer ShadowHunter.
I checked and VAR1 is defined as a global variable. And I checked every item hotspot again but I had really disabled "When the hotspot is clicked, add an item to the inventory" at the item area.

Oh, just as I'm writing my answer and thinking about other possibilities, I realize that the player can pick up more than one dollar bills (which have the same name...). Really dumb! I should give them different names and the script should work then (I hope so).
Now you can tell me that this was a typical error of a beginner , yes it seems so... But I learnt it for the future :)
