View Full Version : Animation starts randomly
23rd Oct 2006, 07:54 PM
Is it possible to make animations of objects start at certain time or randomly. I was thinking something like: fridge and doors opens, televisions goes on and off, dolls "playing" (<--- i have to get this after i saw that chucky doll ;) ) and some other "haunted house" stuff..
I thought if i make whole new "creepy" set of furniture for my haunted house

Yes, this can all be set up in the objects Function - Main.
0: [prim 0x0008] Random Number (Local 0x0000, Literal 0x003C) true:1 false:error
it 1: [global 0x016F] Idle - Minutes (Local 0x0000) true:2 false:error
2: (Have this line call the BHAV that does the animation) true:0 false:0
This will generate a random number between 0 and 60 and then idle for that many minutes, next it calls the BHAV that does the animation and then the process starts all over again with a new random number being selected.
note: make sure not to remove anything vital from Function - Main when adding any lines to it.

Private just means that it is used in the package only and not by any other package. You should be able to modify it without any problems.
