Event for changing light level? [Solved]


Recommended Posts

there is a "inst.LightWatcher" for every player. Search all game files with eg notepad++ and see if you find a function from it that helps you. One example would be inst.LightWatcher:IsInLight()

edit:
and there is inst.LightWatcher:GetLightValue() , maybe this is already what you need.

In wisecracker.lua, the thing that makes your character talk so much, is this code:
 

    if nightvision or self.inst.LightWatcher:IsInLight() then
        if not self.inlight and (nightvision or self.inst.LightWatcher:GetTimeInLight() >= 0.5) then
            self.inlight = true
            if self.inst.components.talker ~= nil and not self.inst:HasTag("playerghost") then
                self.inst.components.talker:Say(GetString(self.inst, "ANNOUNCE_ENTER_LIGHT"))
                is_talker_busy = true
            end
        end
    elseif self.inlight and self.inst.LightWatcher:GetTimeInDark() >= 0.5 then
        self.inlight = false
        if self.inst.components.talker ~= nil then
            self.inst.components.talker:Say(GetString(self.inst, "ANNOUNCE_ENTER_DARK"))
            is_talker_busy = true
        end
    end

within OnUpdate.
So my guess would be there is no event fired, but you have to check the lightvalue periodically, eg with DoPeriodicTask(1,..)

Yes thanks, I can make it work with that!
