PersistentConversationAttempt(object, string, action)

This function attempts to ensure that an NPC starts a conversation with a specified PC.

void PersistentConversationAttempt(
    object oPC,
    string sConvo = "",
    action bPrivate = FALSE
);

Parameters

oPC

The PC to start talking to.

sConvo

The resource reference (filename) of a conversation. (Default: "")

bPrivate

Specify whether the conversation is audible to everyone or only to the PC. (Default: FALSE)


Description

This function attempts to start a conversation between the NPC this function is being called by and the specified PC (oPC) using the conversation file (sConvo) supplied.

If sConvo is left blank then the NPC's normal conversation file will be used instead.

if bPrivate is set to TRUE, then the conversation text will only be seen by the relevant player.



Remarks

Each of the four attempts is separated by a 3 second gap.


Known Bugs

This function does not work as expected.

It will always make four attempts to start the conversation, even if the first one succeeds, each successive attempt ending / cancelling the previous one.
