Question about event triggering.

Postby dendwaler » Sat Dec 17, 2011 9:17 am

Hi all,
I want to trigger events just by entering a region.
Not using a button, but just the fact that the avatar enters a defined "volume in space" it triggers a oneshot event.
Can be a sound or an animation.

Is that possible?
Can anyone give me a script for this?
Thx in advance.

There is a QuickScript for a region that triggers an avatar animation (oneshot).

Edit: And here is the longer version...

Code: Select all
<region>:
    logic:
        modifiers:
          - flags:
              - multitrigger
            activators:
              - type: objectinvolume
                triggers:
                  - enter
            conditions:
              - type: volumesensor
                satisfied: true
                direction: enter
            actions:
              - type: responder
                ref: <responder name>

This triggers a responder to which you can assign anything you want.

I am aware of that, but unfortunately its not the avatar that has to be animated.
To be more exact , I want a sound that starts to play when the avatar enters a space volume.
But the sound will still be heard when the avatar leaves this space.

This cannot be done with soundregions, because they will stop abruptly when you leave the region.

Edit,
Sorry I did not see your edit, because i was writing the post above.
Okay then I edit this post as well.

I think your answer, answers my question, I will give this a try.
Thx, ronal 'D

Me again, :oops:

Sorry , but my understanding of Alcscript and Python is still minimal.
I tried the following but it did not work.
Code: Select all
Rgn_Snd:
    logic:
        modifiers:
          - flags:
              - multitrigger
            activators:
              - type: objectinvolume
                triggers:
                  - enter
            conditions:
              - type: volumesensor
                satisfied: true
                direction: enter
            actions:
              - type: responder
                ref: Snd_Emit

Snd_Emit:      
   type: soundemit
   sound:
      flags:
         - is3dsound
         - localonly
      file: <soundfile>
      volume: 1
      minfdist: 50
maxfdist: 100
type: ambient



I thought the code - ref: <responder name> -
should be : ref: :<responder name>
Or this line should be:
name: <random>

Then i made the next:
Code: Select all
Rgn_Snd:
    logic:
        modifiers:
          - flags:
              - multitrigger
            activators:
              - type: objectinvolume
                triggers:
                  - enter
            conditions:
              - type: volumesensor
                satisfied: true
                direction: enter
            actions:
              - type: responder
                ref: Music
                responder:
                states:
                  - cmds:
                  - type: soundmsg
                    params:
                            receivers:
                              - 0011:Snd_Emit                        
                flags:
                  - detecttrigger      
         
Snd_Emit:      
   type: soundemit
   sound:
      flags:
         - is3dsound
         - localonly
      file: Cathedral_S_A
      volume: 1
      minfdist: 50
                                 maxfdist: 100   
                   type: ambient


Still no result.
Can you give me more clues?

You did not define a responder to play the sound. It is not possible to run a sound emitter directly.

Code: Select all
Rgn_Snd:
    logic:
        modifiers:
          - flags:
              - multitrigger
            activators:
              - type: objectinvolume
                triggers:
                  - enter
            conditions:
              - type: volumesensor
                satisfied: true
                direction: enter
            actions:
              - type: responder
                ref: Resp_Snd
        actions:
          - type: responder
            name: Resp_Snd
            responder:
                states:
                  - cmds:
                      - type: soundmsg
                        params:
                            receivers:
                              - 0011:Snd_Emit
                            cmds:
                              - play
                        waiton: -1
                    nextstate: 0
                    waittocmd: 0
                curstate: 0
                flags:
                  - detecttrigger


Sorry, I thought you had seen enough AlcScript by now to figure out the rest.

I wished , this was true.
Its realy very hard for me to understand Alcscript and python is even worse.
The mistakes i can make , I do make.
It withholds me a bit from making better puzzles in my ages, because i never get the code working.

Thx for your help again D'lanor, this one works as it should.
I can realy use this on many places.
So it helped me a lot.
