View Full Version : [Weapon] Get Keyvalue from player using weapon

18-12-2016, 10:49 PM
The weapon I'm trying to create needs its secondary fire to change a player's keyvalue ('effects'), only I don't know how to do get or set a keyvalue.
I know what keyvalue I want to change but I don't know how to access it.

From CBasePlayer section in the angelscript documentation:

void KeyValue(KeyValueData@)
Sets keyvalue data on this entity

What is KeyValueData@ ?

is that an integer value?

Yes. Please see: http://samvanheer.github.io/SC_Angelscript/docs/entvars_t.htm

pev.effects uses the EFFECTS enum: http://samvanheer.github.io/SC_Angelscript/docs/EFFECTS.htm

One last thing, is there a way for the weapon to decrease its clip over time while effects keyvalue is toggled? (making a 'glow stick', but I want to drain the battery like a flashlight)
Is there a way I can use the player's default flashlight battery? If so, that would be optimal.

I'm not sure you can use the flashlight's hook or something like that.
Maybe Nero's Flashlight Plugin might give you an idea of how to it: http://forums.svencoop.com/showthread.php/43640-Plugin-Custom-Flashlight

If you want to check that, do that in ItemPreFrame() or ItemPostFrame()

Aye, but you can only add a flashlight battery, not hook into the existing one. (I didn't figure it out anyway ^^) Which is why you can use both the base flashlight and the custom one. And they are on separate batteries with overlapping HUD elements. (can't move them)
