[HELP] Slothbot. again.


Bean666

Recommended Posts

Hello, This has been bugging me for quite a while now, and it's even weirder as this happens not always, sometimes only, but that is the flaw here, I managed to edit slothbot a bit, making the boss run when he's far and when he's near setting ped animation, thats all I did and since the original slothbot was giving errors, and I was not happy about it, so I edited it a bit, to remove those showing errors, here are the errors: 

so I managed to remove the errors by doing checks where the errors show, bot works perfectly, but there are times like these, happening, see video below:

Now, here are the parts of the vanilla slothbot code I modified, none other, just those. can you tell me which part makes him behave like that? its weird since it doesn't always happen, just barely but its still a big flaw:

C SIDE: ALL PARTS I EDITED, and i put detailed marks where I modified it. please try and compare to the vanilla slothbot to see what's wrong. Thankyou. i

NOTE: I suggest checking this on Notepad++ since the code is too big to fit on this MTA forums screen. Any help appreciated, thankyou.!

NOTE: this seldom happens so its probably I missed one small thing or did one thing wrong! and I only added checks to those lines that gave errors!

I have been trying to fix this many times but now I just cant seem to fix it no matter how hard I tried, and decided to ask for help here.

You've added too many else, most of them you don't need, try removing all of them and only let checks like if isElement(ped) then don't need else as if there's no element you don't need to make that element move, got me?

Also read this tuto by YIAMA about debugging (it might help you a little):

I added else since when I didn't, they didnt recognize me and won't attack me. I've always did the checks without the else, they just won't attack me.

But okay i'll try once again and remove the elses,

try adding debug lines such as outputChatBox(tostring(getElementData(ped, "status")))

sometimes things gets clog up in such old and complex scripts

okay i removed an else, but see if this code would work fine? I removed the else and the extra chase_move function and just added the check instead, this is mostly all the same on the chase_move function on serverside, there are multiple lines like these.

if oldPx and oldPy and oldPz and px and py and pz then
local pdistance = (getDistanceBetweenPoints3D(oldPx, oldPy, oldPz, px, py, pz))
	if (pdistance < 1) and (inrange == 0) then -- if the ped is stuck but not in range of the player
	local weap = getPedWeaponSlot(ped)
	if (weap == 1) or (weap == 7) then
	setPedWeaponSlot(ped, 0)
		triggerClientEvent("bot_Jump", ped)
		setTimer(setPedWeaponSlot, 850, 1, ped, weap)
		else
		triggerClientEvent("bot_Jump", ped)
	end
	setTimer(chase_move, 600, 1, ped, tx, ty, tz, px, py, pz)
	else
	setTimer(chase_move, 600, 1, ped, tx, ty, tz, px, py, pz)
	end

I can't look if the code work 

seems to be working fine, as the other first code with many elses, ill give an update whenever the boss acts like on the video again..

An update? You have took away the else's ?

yes I removed the elses I've put on the first code, first they were fine but now there's something wrong again hahaha, it seems like the bots are not updating when I die:

I also edited the changestatus and removed the else

function changestatus(dataName)
	if getElementType(source) == "ped" and dataName == "status" and (getElementData(source, "slothbot") == true) then
		if (getElementData(source, "status") == "chasing") then
			local player = getElementData(source, "target")
			if isElement(player) then -- HERE
			local oldTx, oldTy, oldTz = getElementPosition(player)
			local oldPx, oldPy, oldPz = getElementPosition(source)
			setTimer(chase_aim, 80, 1, source)
			setTimer(chase_move, 700, 1, source, oldTx, oldTy, oldTz, oldPx, oldPy, oldPz)
			setTimer(chase_shoot, 1500, 1, source)
			end
			setTimer(chase_move, 700, 1, source, oldTx, oldTy, oldTz, oldPx, oldPy, oldPz)
		elseif (getElementData(source, "status") == "hunting") then
			local oldPx, oldPy, oldPz = getElementPosition(source)
			setTimer(enemy_check, 600, 1, source)
			 -- starts scanning for enemies
			setTimer(hunt_move, 800, 1, source, oldPx, oldPy, oldPz, oldPx, oldPy, oldPz)
		elseif (getElementData(source, "status") == "following") then
			local player = getElementData(source, "leader")
			local oldTx, oldTy, oldTz = getElementPosition(player)
			local oldPx, oldPy, oldPz = getElementPosition(source)
			setTimer(follow_enemy_check, 500, 1, source)
			setTimer(follow_move, 800, 1, source, oldPx, oldPy, oldPz, oldPx, oldPy, oldPz)
		elseif (getElementData(source, "status") == "waiting") then
			setTimer(wait_enemy_check, 500, 1, source)
		elseif (getElementData(source, "status") == "guarding") then
			setTimer(guard_enemy_check, 800, 1, source)
			 -- starts scanning for enemies
			setTimer(guard_move, 400, 1, source)
		end
	end
end
addEventHandler("onClientElementDataChange", getRootElement(), changestatus)

 

server

function changestatus(dataName)
	if getElementType(source) == "ped" and dataName == "status" and (getElementData(source, "slothbot") == true) then
		if (getElementData(source, "status") ~= "stasis") then
			local allshapes = getElementsByType("colshape")
			for SKey, theShape in ipairs(allshapes) do
				if (isElement(theShape)) then
					if getElementParent(theShape) == source then
						destroyElement(theShape) -- removes the target colshape that the ped was running towards in hunt mode
					end
				end
			end
		end
		if (getElementData(source, "status") == "chasing") then
			local player = getElementData(source, "target")
			if isElement(player) then -- HERE
			local oldTx, oldTy, oldTz = getElementPosition(player)
			local oldPx, oldPy, oldPz = getElementPosition(source)
			setTimer(chase_move, 700, 1, source, oldTx, oldTy, oldTz, oldPx, oldPy, oldPz)
			end
			setTimer(chase_move, 700, 1, source, oldTx, oldTy, oldTz, oldPx, oldPy, oldPz)
		elseif (getElementData(source, "status") == "hunting") then
			setTimer(findPath, 200, 1, source)
		elseif (getElementData(source, "status") == "waiting") then
			setTimer(wait_mode, 200, 1, source)
		elseif (getElementData(source, "status") == "following") then
			local player = getElementData(source, "leader")
			local oldTx, oldTy, oldTz = getElementPosition(player)
			local oldPx, oldPy, oldPz = getElementPosition(source)
			setTimer(follow_move, 700, 1, source, oldTx, oldTy, oldTz, oldPx, oldPy, oldPz)
		elseif (getElementData(source, "status") == "guarding") then
			local px, py, pz = getElementPosition(source)
			guard_move(source, px, py, pz)
		end
	end
end
addEventHandler("onElementDataChange", getRootElement(), changestatus)

Well you should make them wait when you die

what do you mean, set their status to wait? that's already on the chase_move function I think its just the checks, whenever I tried to fix the debug errors showing up by adding checks they start to act weird

I think i've found the problem but let's see again if he acts like this, basically here:

else -- if the ped isnt stuck
if px and py and pz and oldTx and oldTy and oldTz then -- I had this on if oldPx and oldPy and oldPz and px and py and pz, which does not match the distance variable
	local distance = (getDistanceBetweenPoints3D(px, py, pz, oldTx, oldTy, oldTz))
		if (distance > 5) then -- if the ped hasnt reached its target
			local flatdist = (getDistanceBetweenPoints2D(px, py, tx, ty))
			if flatdist < 2 then -- if the ped hasnt reached its target, but is directly below or above (for multiple levels in maps)
					setTimer(beginsearch, 800, 1, ped)
					else -- keep going
					local angle = (360 - math.deg(math.atan2((oldTx - px), (oldTy - py)))) % 360
					setTimer(chase_move, 600, 1, ped, oldTx, oldTy, oldTz, px, py, pz)
						end
						else -- if the ped has reached its target ( reached the spot it last saw you standing in)
						setTimer(beginsearch, 800, 1, ped)
						end
				 end
		end
end
end

EDIT: but yeah they started walking again when I died despite having the check corrected, maybe put the setTimer(chase_move) after the check? im realy confused
