Hi Folks, thanks for your quick response!

Hmm...the actor.IsTalking thing is something I just tried to fix it, actually I guess it should be actor.IsTalking(true) or something cos it's a game's basic functions (or is it?). This function as read in help file should return true value if actor is talking. But again I am not sure. So should I try to make a variable which contains the information about talking (true/false) in my npc script and then somehow use it in actor script. Of course I should also initialize that global variable in script_init? I tried this before, but I couldn't do it right :/

Hi everybody on this Forum!

I have a very very veeery basic problem. My actor goes to idle state when he is talking with another character/npc. How to prevent this from happen? I have tried different things but all the time idle state turns on and the talking starts. I have tried with the following idle code (the same as in tutorial):

include "scripts\base.inc"
 
var IsIdle = false;
var IdleStartTime = 0;

while(true) // endless loop
{
  if(actor.Ready) // is the actor doing something
  {
    if(!IsIdle)
    {
      // actor enters idle state
      IsIdle = true;
      IdleStartTime = Game.CurrentTime;
    }
    else if(Game.CurrentTime - IdleStartTime > 5000) // is the actor idle for 5 seconds
    {
      IdleStartTime = Game.CurrentTime;
      actor.ApplyEvent("idle");
    }
  }
  else IsIdle = false; // actor is busy; set IsIdle to false
  Sleep(100); // wait for 100 milliseconds
}
 
////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
on "idle"
{
  // do some idle processing here
  actor.Talk("ZzzZZz...Yawn!");
  Sleep(1000);
  actor.Talk("Huoh!");
  Sleep(1500);
  actor.GoTo(Random(0, 1000), Random(0, 600));
}
 
////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////




I have tried to put something like this:

if(!IsIdle && !actor.IsTalking)

to make the if sentence have AND operator...but unfortenately this doesn't work...I have also tried to make boolean variable for contain the true/false value when the actor is talking/not talking and then use that variable in that if statement, but can't get it rolling yet... ::)

So if somebody has solved a problem like this before please help, cos I don't want my actor say zzz when talking to some npc.

Thanks :)
