Syntax

bool getWeaponFlags ( weapon theWeapon, string theFlag )

OOP Syntax Help! I don't understand this!

Method: weapon:getFlags(...)
Counterpart: setWeaponFlags

Required Arguments

  • theWeapon: the weapon to get the flag of.
  • theFlag: the weapon flag to get:
    • disable_model: makes the weapon and muzzle effect invisible or not.
    • flags: returns the flags used to get where the gun shoots at. These flags are (by order):
      • checkBuildings: allows the shoot to be blocked by GTA's internally placed buildings, i.e. the world map.
      • checkCarTires: allows the shoot to be blocked by vehicle tires.
      • checkDummies: allows the shoot to be blocked by GTA's internal dummies. These are not used in the current MTA version so this argument can be set to false.
      • checkObjects: allows the shoot to be blocked by objects.
      • checkPeds: allows the shoot to be blocked by peds and players.
      • checkVehicles: allows the shoot to be blocked by vehicles.
      • checkSeeThroughStuff: allows the shoot to be blocked by translucent game objects, e.g. glass.
      • checkShootThroughStuff: allows the shoot to be blocked by things that can be shot through.
    • instant_reload: if enabled, the weapon reloads instantly rather than waiting the reload time until shooting again.
    • shoot_if_out_of_range: if enabled, the weapon still fires its target beyond the weapon range distance.
    • shoot_if_blocked: if enabled, the weapon still fires its target even if it's blocked by something.

Returns

Returns the true or false on success (flags flag returns 8 values) if the flag is enabled or not. Returns false if the weapon element isn't valid or an error occured.

Example

This example checks whether the instant_reload flag is enabled or disabled.

local weapon = createWeapon("silenced", 0, 0, 10) -- Create the weapon
if weapon then -- if the weapon exist then
   setWeaponFlags(weapon, "instant_reload", true) -- enable instant_reload
   local flag = (getWeaponFlags (weapon,"instant_reload") and "instant_reload enabled") or "instant_reload disabled"
   outputChatBox (flag)
end
