SetPedAnimation

From Multi Theft Auto: Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Sets the current animation of a player or ped. Not specifying the type of animation will automatically cancel the current one.

Syntax

bool setPedAnimation ( ped thePed [, string block = nil, string anim = nil, int time = -1, bool loop = true, bool updatePosition = true,
                       bool interruptable = true, bool freezeLastFrame = true, int blendTime = 250 ] )

OOP Syntax Help! I don't understand this!

Method: ped:setAnimation(...)
Counterpart: getPedAnimation

Required Arguments

Optional Arguments

NOTE: When using optional arguments, you might need to supply all arguments before the one you wish to use. For more information on optional arguments, see optional arguments.

  • block: the animation block's name.
  • anim: the name of the animation within the block.
  • time: how long the animation will run for in milliseconds.
  • loop: indicates whether or not the animation will loop.
  • updatePosition: will change the actual coordinates of the ped according to the animation. Use this for e.g. walking animations.
  • interruptable: if set to false other tasks wont be able to interupt the animation. Setting this to 'false' also gives this function more power to override other animations that are running. For example, squatting after a jump can be terminated.
  • freezeLastFrame: if set to true after animation the last frame will be frozen, otherwise the animation will end and controls will return.
  • blendTime: how long the animation will mixed with the previous one in milliseconds.

Returns

Returns true if succesful, false otherwise.

This example creates a ped, rotates him, and makes him walk:

function makePed()

	setPedAnimation(thePed, "ped", "WOMAN_walknorm")
end
addCommandHandler("makemyped", makePed)

This example makes the player sit down and stand up using the command /sit.

function toggleSit(thePlayer)
	if not getElementData(thePlayer, "sitting") then
		setPedAnimation(thePlayer, "ped", "seat_down", -1, false, false, false, false)
		setElementData(thePlayer, "sitting", true)
	else
		-- If you use again this command then your character stand up
		setPedAnimation(thePlayer)
		removeElementData(thePlayer, "sitting")
	end
end
addCommandHandler("sit", toggleSit)
