im making a mod where a single player has to try and blow up others with c4 sort of like tag that kids play. as soon as he kills somebody that person then has to kill somebody. all other players have to avoid dieing.

there are a couple of things i need help with.

i want to make the code below work. the parts that cause an error are commented out atm but the other parts arent doing anything either. sorry its a bit messy.

Code:
doAbility() 
{ 	
if(self.pers["team"] == "axis") 	//if team = axis (taggers)
	{ 		
	origin = self GetOrigin(); 	//get player origin for earthquake effect	
	self freezeControls( true );	//freeze controls during the ability
	self SetClientDvar( "god", "1" ); 	//give him god mode so he isnt affected by the shellshock	
	//self moveZ( 300, 2, 1, 0 );	//hoping to make him go in the air 300 units	
	//self rotateYaw( 720, 2, 0.5, 0.5 ) 	//do a double spin	
	wait 2; 		
	//self moveZ( -300, 0.5, 0, 0 ); 	//then hit the ground hard	
	Earthquake( 5, 1, origin, 2000 ); 	//causing an earthquake	
	players = level.players; 		
	players ShellShock( "jeepride_bridgebang", 15 ); 	//that causes shellshock	
	wait 3; 		
	self freezeControls( false ); 	//unfreeze him	
	self SetClientDvar( "god", "0" ); 	//take off god mode
	}
}



another thing that doesnt seem to be working is the "if team = "team"" statements ie
Code:
if(self.pers["team"] == "axis")
//do stuff



finally i want to know how to change the player from one team to the other when they are tagged or tagged someone.



its a lot of stuff but i would appreciate if you could help.

It wont work because player is undefined.

Code:
doAbility() 
{ 
	self endon( "disconnect" );
	self endon( "death" );
	if( isDefined( self.mover ) ) self.mover delete();	
	if(self.pers["team"] == "axis") 	//if team = axis (taggers)
	{ 		
		origin = self GetOrigin(); 	//get player origin for earthquake effect	
		self freezeControls( true );	//freeze controls during the ability
		self SetClientDvar( "god", "1" ); 	//give him god mode so he isnt affected by the shellshock	
		self.mover = spawn( "script_model", self.origin ); //spawn mover
		self.mover moveZ( 300, 2, 1, 0 );	//hoping to make him go in the air 300 units	
		self.mover rotateYaw( 720, 2, 0.5, 0.5 ) 	//do a double spin	
		wait 2; 	
		self.mover moveZ( -300, 0.5 ); 	//then hit the ground hard
		wait 2;
		self unlink();
		self.mover delete();		
		Earthquake( 5, 1, self.origin, 2000 ); 	//causing an earthquake	
		
		players = getEntArray( "player|, "classname" );
		for( i = 0; i < players.size; i++ )		
			players[i] ShellShock( "jeepride_bridgebang", 15 ); 	//that causes shellshock	
		
		wait 3; 		
		self freezeControls( false ); 	//unfreeze him	
		self SetClientDvar( "god", "0" ); 	//take off god mode
	}
}



Tips
1. You cannot use move functions on player entity, allways link player to script_model entity and then move that entity.
2. Remember to add endons() in thread, without them your script wouldn't end when someone disconnect or dies and this will cause server to crash.
3. Do not put undefined variables, you had one undefined "origin" in earthQuake() func.
4. Remember to put all assets in mod.csv like shellshock, models, scripts etc..

thanks ill give it a try. how would you put the .shock file in the mod.csv? everything else is in the csv.

do you think i should use a menu to trigger this or maybe use a button like the grenade button (grenades are taken away).

Brax, you had a small error I noticed

Code:
doAbility() 
{ 
	self endon( "disconnect" );
	self endon( "death" );
	if( isDefined( self.mover ) ) self.mover delete();	
	if(self.pers["team"] == "axis") 	//if team = axis (taggers)
	{ 		
		origin = self GetOrigin(); 	//get player origin for earthquake effect	
		self freezeControls( true );	//freeze controls during the ability
		self SetClientDvar( "god", "1" ); 	//give him god mode so he isnt affected by the shellshock	
		self.mover = spawn( "script_model", self.origin ); //spawn mover
		self.mover moveZ( 300, 2, 1, 0 );	//hoping to make him go in the air 300 units	
		self.mover rotateYaw( 720, 2, 0.5, 0.5 ) 	//do a double spin	
		wait 2; 	
		self.mover moveZ( -300, 0.5 ); 	//then hit the ground hard
		wait 2;
		self unlink();
		self.mover delete();		
		Earthquake( 5, 1, self.origin, 2000 ); 	//causing an earthquake	
		
		players = getEntArray( "player", "classname" );
		for( i = 0; i < players.size; i++ )		
			players[i] ShellShock( "jeepride_bridgebang", 15 ); 	//that causes shellshock	
		
		wait 3; 		
		self freezeControls( false ); 	//unfreeze him	
		self SetClientDvar( "god", "0" ); 	//take off god mode
	}
}


Please replace your current script with this one. You had

Quote:
players = getEntArray( "player|, "classname" );


when it should have been a " instead of a |.

Thank you, Kyle Mulliger.

ok i put in the code but it didnt work so i commented out everything and uncommented things until i knew the things that werent working. this is what i have now.

Code:

{  	
      self endon( "disconnect" ); 	
      self endon( "death" ); 	
      if(self.pers["team"] == "axis") 	//if team = axis (taggers) 	
      { 		 		
            self freezeControls( true );	//freeze controls during the ability 		
            self SetClientDvar( "god", "1" ); 	//give him god mode so he isnt affected by the shellshock	 		
            self.mover = Spawn( "script_model", self getorigin() ); //spawn mover 		
            self linkTo( self.mover ); 		
            self.mover moveZ( 300, 3, 1, 0 );	//hoping to make him go in the air 300 units	 		
            wait 2; 	 		
            self.mover moveZ( -200, 0.5 ); 	//then hit the ground hard
            self unlink(); 		
            wait 1; 		
            self.mover delete();		 		
            Earthquake( 5, 1, self getorigin(), 2000 ); 	//causing an earthquake	 		 		
            //players = getEntArray( "player", "classname" ); 		
            //for( i = 0; i < players.size; i++ )		 		
            //	players[i] ShellShock( "artillery_rumble", 15 ); 	//that causes shellshock	 		 		
            wait 3; 		 		
            self freezeControls( false ); 	//unfreeze him	 		
            self SetClientDvar( "god", "0" ); 	//take off god mode 	
      }
}


as you can see the shellshock isnt working.

Try this:

Code:

#include common_scripts\utility;


doAbility()
{
      self endon( "disconnect" ); 	
      self endon( "death" ); 
	  
      if( self.pers["team"] == "axis" ) 
      { 		 		
            self freezeControls( true );	
            self SetClientDvar( "god", "1" );
			
            self.mover = Spawn( "script_model", ( 0, 0, 0 ) );	
			self.mover.origin = self.origin;
			self.mover.angles = self.angles;
			
            self linkTo( self.mover ); 	
			self.mover thread onConditions( self );
			
            self.mover moveZ( 300, 3, 1, 0 );
          	self.mover waittill( "movedone" );
            self.mover moveZ( -300, 0.5 ); 
			self.mover waittill( "movedone" );
			
            self Unlink(); 			
			self.mover Delete();
			
            earthquake( 5, 1, self.origin, 2000 ); 		
			players = getEntArray( "player", "classname" ); 		
            for( i = 0; i < players.size; i++ )		 		
				players[i] ShellShock( "artillery_rumble", 15 ); 
			
            wait 3; 	
	 		
            self freezeControls( false ); 	 		
            self SetClientDvar( "god", "0" ); 	
      }
}

onConditions( owner )
{
	owner waittill_any( "disconnect", "death", "joined_spectator" );
	self Delete();
}
