scripted delay

Postby Tony_LaRocca » Tue Apr 01, 2008 10:10 pm

Does anyone know how to script a delay? For example, if I wanted to make the game pause for a second before carrying out a command.

thanks

you 'd better use the action.createtimedevent 1(1 second that is),"your vbs code",False for 1 execution of the script or True for continuous execution


please see the vbs language reference in the AM documentation for more...

You are welcome... Just make sure you post in this part of the forum your problems with scripting... General discussions are for other purposes... :D

For anyone else out there- don't forget the double quotes! for example,
Action.CreateTimedEvent 1, "Action.GoToFrame "computer-room"", False


Gets you an "Expected end of statement" error. The correct way is

Action.CreateTimedEvent 1, "Action.GoToFrame ""computer-room""", False


When all else fails, read the directions :D
