Need help with a few scripts

Sorry if any of these have been addressed but im lazy and cant be bothered searching.

1) I need a script to make my character go through a waking up sequence like in the beginning of the actual game.

2) A script for activating a sound when entering an area, i have an idea hwo to do this but unsure about some things and how to set it out.

3) I have no idea how to make notes and messages appear on the screen when playign through the game and interacting with things. EG. when i try to open a door when its locked i want text to come on the screen saying 'Damn the doors locked, i wonder where the key it', as this will help drive players to their goal and help players understand what there doing also. (Note: i saw a recent thread about showing messages when interacting with a door or entering a script area but its not very clear to me, to so you know.)

Another eg. picking up notes like in the game, how do i set the text which comes up onscreen.


Please tell me the script for each and give an example and explain how i will place it and set it out, so i dont need to constantly tell you things dont work. Thanks for reading, again sorry if this has been addressed if it has leave a link to the thread and tell me which number this addresses.

Thanks!

Eh, the waking up sequence is also exactly what I need. Except I don't know where to find it or how to combine it with my other scripts.

I think

void SetEntityPlayerInteractCallback(string& asName, string& asCallback, bool abRemoveOnInteraction);

and

void SetMessage(string &asTextCategory, string &asTextEntry, float afTime);

are what you're looking for.

About the noise.. well, I think you should include SetMessage() in the function that causes the noise..
