for example

i have rolfys weather system which when triggered does rain always.
and until the level is finished does the script loop end.

so is there a way to trigger a script that will destroy the earlier timer loop?

or budokaiman is there anything that can be inserted via your mod?

any info welcome

also i have discussed with rolfy and his response was need a modder or pro scripter. plus the guy is very busy.

cheers all

Well you could use the rain area and just put multiple trigger zones for the areas you want it to ran in.

He's already tried with multiple zones, used to be FPSC could only use one timer per level when these scripts were created, there are area zone scripts in the pack. I havent kept up entirely but arent there etimers now, maybe someone more script savvy can help him out here, its no problem if you want to post the original scripts here from the pack.
I dont know if variables are possible in x10 or if they implemented into mystic mod, but would help with this.

In mystic mod there's an entity localtimer, so you could use that!

Alright, so the entity local timer works like a normal timer (timergreater=X:somecommand), but is attached to only that one entity. So you could have a normal timer, and it would affect everything, but a local timer only affects the entity of origin.

I'm not quite sure what the weather system is, but if it's an entity, you can make a local timer script and set it to how long you actually want the rain to appear, then you can add that as the main for the weather effects. If it's a zone with "plrwithinzone=X," then add the local timer in the first and last line. The first one being the command to start the local timer, and the second being the one for "localtimegreater=X, destroy."

Hope this helps, if you could give me details and screenshots in the editor of the weather system, I may be able to help more if this doesn't work.

the weather system is a set of animated huds that run from the trigger zones.

and all is good unless jumping one trigger zone into the next one, there is a pause between loops and sometimes you have to go to original square of the t'zone.

so i am trying to find a smoother running solution.


but also it looks awesome when running and hardly any memory is used for the effect and worth the chase up and challenge.

again thanks rolfy,and le shorte

ps mr illusionist is (well, he was on the case)with it but it is not quite there yet.
