Stopping a GoTo loop
« on: March 26, 2006, 05:36:08 pm »
I'm trying to make an enemy that is walking around and when you touch him it triggers a fight but while he is walking around in the "GoTo" loop the arbitrary0 is disabled, I can't even display text with it.  What's weird is I can break the loop with the Activate Arbitrary.  I've tried messing around with the Priority parameter of CallObjectFunction but haven't had any success.  This is obviously done quite a bit in the game but before I went and tried to translate the code I thought I'd make sure noone has already done the work.

sure.

or:



Arbirary 0 doesn't call aribitrary 2, but activate does.

Arbitrary 1 is the goto loop that makes the enemy walk around and it is called by the startup/idle of a later object.

Fixed, kinda

if you put the goto loop in the startup/idle then arbitrary 0 overrides it
