How to unluck a door from another map?

Hi. So i have one map where the front door is blocked from the inside, but there is a back entrence and in the house you can destroy the blockade and use the front door to get back out
But i can't find a way to make the outside door unlucked after the blockade is broken

Please help Big Grin

Use SetSwingDoorLocked to unlock the door.

RE: How to unluck a door from another map?

Perhaps you could use global variables. Here's a snippet of code where I'm almost doing the same exact thing:
void OnEnter()
{
    AddTimer("SanityTimer", 0.5f, "UpdateSanity"); //Set up a timer on entry.
    if(GetGlobalVarInt("lockdown") == 1)
    {
        SetSwingDoorLocked("metal_1", false, false);
        AddEntityCollideCallback("Player", "ScriptArea_FinalWave", "FinalWave", true, 1);        
    }
}

Just need to set up a global variable that changes when the user removes the blockade. Upon entering the level with the exit, check and see if the global variable has changed. If it has, unlock the door.

What kind of blockade is it btw? since you can always use the built in PlayerInteractionCallback in the entity and then call SetSwingDoorLocked from there Smile

I wouldn't say right off that that wouldn't work cause im not good with the global variable thing infact i dont know what it actual do Smile


But its 2 diffrent maps

that that in "Forest.map" the door is locked ((blocked from the inside) which is in AbandonedHouse.map)

And in AbandonedHouse.map the door is blocked so when the blockade is removed you can go outside into Forest.map but you can't go inside since the door is still locked :-)

In the map editor Entities\gameplay\wooden_boards_block (the second last) :-)

Ok so then use the
SetLevelDoorLocked(string& asName, bool abLocked);

to unlock the level door. And if you press the blockade and in the entity tab you find PlayerInteractCallback use that to call a function when removing the blockade and then use the SetLevelDoorLocked code to unlock it Smile

unless you use a hammer or something to remove the blockade then you just use the SetLevelDoorLocked inside the script you have to remove the blockade Smile

Okay so a script in AbandonedHouse.hps can CallBack something in Forest.hps? Big Grin

RE: How to unluck a door from another map?

Yes I realized that xD

ok so to make a global variable to work you need to make a global.hps file that you put inside your maps folder.

then inside the global.hps you write this

////////////////////////////
// Run at the start of the game.
void OnGameStart()
{
SetGlobalVarInt("NAMEOFVARIABLE", 0);}

then open your forest.hps and inside OnEnter() you write this:

void OnEnter()
{
if(GetGlobalVarInt("NAMETHEGLOBALVARIABLE") == 1)
{
SetLevelDoorLocked("NAMEOFLEVELDOOR", false);
}

else return;
}

then to make the global variable 1 since it was 0, you add this in the same function in AbandonedHouse.hps as the SetLevelDoorLocked code.

AddGlobalVarInt("NAMEOFTHEGLOBALVAR", 1);

I think I got everything ^^
