Global Command Checker Definition AFRLme

This script allows you to check which commands can be executed on each object, item or character. This script was made with the coin interface in mind.


1. Add the main script to the Visionaire Studio Script Editor & set the script as a definition script.
2. Replace the strings inside of the t table with the name of your commands; the order is not important, but the names are case sensitive.

local t = {"close", "examine", "give", "open", "pick_up", "pull", "push", "talk", "use"}

3a. Inside of the condition tab of your your command interface, create a condition for each command you have created; the names should reflect the names given to the interface buttons & those of the t table.
3b. Add "_cond" prefix to the end of each of the conditions you just created; like so...


4. On mouse over for each object, item & character, create an execute a script action containing...


5. On mouse out for each object, character & item, create an execute a script action containing...
