Causing pain state to master

Post by andreboomer »

To my knowledge there isn't a decorate function that allows you to cause a master to go into a pain state. With zscript and pointers it may be possible. How could I go about doing this?

You can make ZScript function like this:

Code: Select all

void A_PainMaster()
{
  if (master && master.health > 0)  // check that master exists and is not dead
  {
    master.SetStateLabel("Pain");
  }
}
then just use the A_PainMaster function in the actor's states wherever you want.
