[Help/Bug?] CreatePed are invincible /w slothbot


Recommended Posts

Hi guys, hope you are all good.
I am scripting a pretty simple server based on the "play" gamemode, with a couple of mods and i would like to add some bots around the map (plus event/mission like on Arma/Dayz servers). I was scripting around using slothbot and i saw that sometimes the bots are invincible but i didn't give much importance to that because i had to clean my code. Then, i noticed that every bot was invincible. Thinking of a bug in my code, i removed my mods and tryied to create a ped using createPed but they are still invincible. I noted that the only way to kill them is using the knife (stealthkill). To develop the scripts i use a Windows PC meanwhile i have a "production" server based on Linux and it seems that bots get killed (sometimes) on the server. I also checked around and i aw a similar post

but wasn't helpful. Other thing to note is that i do not manipulate health on any gameobject.


Steps i tried to fix the bug:
- reinstalling MTA
- removing all teams from players/bots
- deleting all server resources with a MTA clean install, creating only a simple resource to spawn a ped



local weaponIds = {10, 22, 33}

local started = false

function initBotOnStreets(theResource) 

    if(getResourceName(theResource) ~= "5bserver" or started) then 
        return
    end

	outputDebugString("Spawno")


    createPed(136, 2320, -1737, 0)


end

addEventHandler ( "onResourceStart", getRootElement(), initBotOnStreets)

- tried to play GTA and see if i could kill npcs
This is my script (using slothbot)

Does anyone have any idea about this? I have lost around 10h behind this without any success...

PS
I also tried using timers to manage the spawn but same problem...

Othe two things:
- the onClientPedDamage event gets the loss of health correctly
- maybe the bug can be connected to the fact that when i go to the area (the spawn is at Groove Street and the bots spawn in the street near the gym) i see bots spawned in a certain position, maybe already fighting, but then disappear and reappear... (i suppose like a rendering problem)

yes if u spawn the bots without a team they will fight each other and kill each other thus them disappearing before u get to that area.

and the "no damage thing", make sure to check turned on scripts that has

onClientPedDamage or something that is related to ped damage there might be a function that is cancelling the event.

Hey,
yes i already checked out but i don't have anything like that... but i can tell you that setElementHealth is not working (client side)

where is that setElementHealth function?

I have created a test script to try setting it manually... will post the code
 

function registerDamage (  attacker, weapon, bodypart , loss ) 
    local reamainingHealth = getElementHealth(source);
    outputChatBox("Reamaining health "..reamainingHealth)
    if(reamainingHealth > 0) then
        setElementHealth(source, reamainingHealth)
    else
        setElementHealth(source, 0)
    end
end 
addEventHandler ( "onClientPedDamage", getRootElement(), registerDamage ) 

 

I also found out this code snippet in the slothbot server functions... can it be bugged?

function aidamage(attacker, weapon, bodypart)
	if (isElement(attacker)) and (getElementData(source, "slothbot") == true) and
			(getElementData(source, "controller") == getLocalPlayer()) then
		if (getElementData(source, "target") ~= attacker) and (getElementType(attacker) == "player") then
			if getPlayerTeam(attacker) == false then
				if (getElementData(source, "status") ~= "following") then
					triggerServerEvent("onBotFindEnemy", source, attacker)
				else
					setElementData(source, "target", attacker)
				end
			elseif (getElementData(source, "BotTeam") ~= getPlayerTeam(attacker)) then
				if (getElementData(source, "status") ~= "following") then
					triggerServerEvent("onBotFindEnemy", source, attacker)
				else
					setElementData(source, "target", attacker)
				end
			else
			end
		elseif (getElementData(source, "target") ~= attacker) and (getElementType(attacker) == "ped") then
			if (getElementData(attacker, "BotTeam") == false) then
				if (getElementData(source, "status") ~= "following") then
					triggerServerEvent("onBotFindEnemy", source, attacker)
				else
					setElementData(source, "target", attacker)
				end
			elseif (getElementData(source, "BotTeam")) ~= (getElementData(attacker, "BotTeam")) then
				if (getElementData(source, "status") ~= "following") then
					triggerServerEvent("onBotFindEnemy", source, attacker)
				else
					setElementData(source, "target", attacker)
				end
			else
				--same team
			end
		end
	end
	if (isElement(attacker)) then
		local theTeam = getElementData(attacker, "BotTeam")
		if (isElement(theTeam)) then
			if (getTeamFriendlyFire(theTeam) == false) then
				if (getElementType(attacker) == "ped") then
					if (getElementData(attacker, "BotTeam") == theTeam) then
						cancelEvent() --cancel the event
					end
				elseif (getElementType(attacker) == "player") then
					if getPlayerTeam(attacker) == theTeam then
						cancelEvent() --cancel the event
					end

no way guys, some bots get killed sometimes other bots are invincible...

there are no bugs atm @slothmans slothbot script, as i have known and i'm using it as well, make sure to reinstall slothbot resource, clean. just to be sure. 

anyway the damage script, try this,

try putting this on a brand-new resource name it "pedDamages" or "botDamages" or something like "botUtilities" or something anyway, just give it a test first and see how it goes.

Client-Side:

function pedDamageTest (  attacker, weapon, bodypart , loss ) 
	if attacker and attacker == localPlayer then 
		local remainingHealth = getElementHealth(source)
		outputChatBox("DEBUG: Remaining health "..remainingHealth)
		triggerServerEvent("damageThePed",source,attacker,weapon,bodypart,loss)
	end 
end 
addEventHandler ( "onClientPedDamage", root, pedDamageTest ) 

Server-Side:

function damageThePed(attacker,weapon,bodypart,loss)
	if (source.health - loss) <= 0 then
		killPed(source,attacker,weapon,bodypart)
	else
		source.health = source.health - loss
	end
end
addEvent("damageThePed", true)
addEventHandler("damageThePed", root, damageThePed)

Guys, thank you all! It seems to work... i didn't know i had to manage the life of bots as i saw they got killed sometimes...

Still, i am a developer but never worked on Lua/MTA but i will be glad to help the community if i can:D

Actually, you shouldn't have to manage the life of bots yourself. At least they shouldn't be invincible by default.

I suspect where the problem might be. You create the bots at z position 0 or 2. z = 0 means sea level. You're creating them below the ground. And there is no water in that place, they just fall down. Which leads to this:

When peds fall below z coordinate -100 or something similar, the game teleports them at some point on ped path. However, that's from the perspective of GTA SA. If you weren't the syncer when that happened, MTA server still sees the ped at the position where it was created. So you see the peds near the gym but they're invincible because the syncer controls the damage and the peds have no syncer. You may think you're the syncer because you see them close to you, but you're not. To become the syncer, you have to come closer to their actual position, where MTA server sees them.

It may be confusing because the positions of unsynced peds aren't updated on clients to match the one that the server sees - unless the server calls setElementPosition, in which case the clients will see the ped teleporting to the specified position, but afterwards there's nothing that stops the ped from straying again. If anything, it's position of unsynced bots that you have to manage yourself, because the server doesn't have physics. For simplicity, you could make a timer on the server that, if the ped is unsynced (using getElementSyncer), gets the position of the ped and assigns that same position. That would keep teleporting the unsynced peds back to their actual positions.
