I'm bad at stuff
« on: October 01, 2017, 03:23:02 pm »

I've been fiddling with plugins and scripts, and I was wondering how to target players that are not yourself.
global.myself.object and ?????????

That's probably not the best way to name your topic, but to answer your question


There's a list named global.players, which you can access with ds_list_ functions.
ds_list_find_value(global.players, 0) will return the Player of the server host (the server host is always the first, which is why index is 0)
So if you know the position of a player in that list, you can retrieve the Player instance with ds_list_find_value(global.players, <index>)

You can also use with(Player) { <code> } to do something with all player instances. Or you can loop through all items in global.players, too.


If you want to find a Player by name, you may want to do something like

with(Player) {
    if (name == "something") {
         <do something with it>
    }
}

But remember that some players may have the same name, so that code may execute for two players or more at once.


For more info you may want to check out either some other plugins, or the code guides in the mods section.
