This function is used to set the development mode. Setting development mode allows access to special commands which can assist with script debugging.

Client-side development mode commands:

  • showcol: Enables colshapes to be viewed as a wireframe object.
  • showsound: Enables world sound ids to be printed in the debug output window.

Shared development mode functions:

  • debugSleep: Sets the freeze time for the client/server.

[[{{{image}}}|link=|]] Note: Enabling development mode on the server side does not enable it on the client side. These functions work independently on both sides


bool setDevelopmentMode ( bool enable [, bool enableWeb = false ] )

Required Arguments

  • enable: A boolean to indicate whether development mode is on (true) or off (false)
  • enableWeb: A boolean to indicate whether browser debug messages will be filtered (false) or not (true)


Returns true if the mode was set correctly, false otherwise.


Minimum server version 1.5.4-9.11305
Minimum client version 1.1.1-9.03355

Note: Using this feature requires the resource to have the above minimum version declared in the meta.xml <min_mta_version> section. e.g. <min_mta_version server="1.5.4-9.11305" client="1.1.1-9.03355" />


Example 1: This example would set the development mode of the client. Use /showcol [<0-1>] and /showsound [<0-1>] later to enable/disable respective functions.


It is important to note that this example has to be in a client side script. Otherwise, the execution of the command would only result in the shared dev mode that does not allow the use of showcol and showsound.
