PlayConversationAnimation(int, object)

Makes caller face a PC and play an animation.

void PlayConversationAnimation(
    int nAnimationConstant,
    object oTarget
);

Parameters

nAnimationConstant

Animation to play (ANIMATION_*)

oTarget

Object to face.


Description

First, the caller will face oTarget. If oTarget isn’t a valid object, the caller will face the nearest PC instead. Then, the caller will play the nAnimationConstant animation. If this is a looping animation, it is played for two seconds.



Remarks

Great for making tavern scripts and other scripts, where you want it to look like two NPCs are talking.

//Don't do this if the entering object is the drunk man
if (oTarget==oDrunk) return;

case 1: nAnimation=ANIMATION_LOOPING_TALK_LAUGHING; break;
