[HELP] Damage loss display problem

Recommended Posts

Hello there forum,

I have been working on a small script, but i have some issues, those issues are, that when i shoot the ped it displays the text in the corner of the screen but the text doesn't stay there for even a second, everytime i shoot it displays and it's gone in a millisecond. Another thing, is that i have used "loss" i have been following some Wiki stuff to learn more about loss, but it seems not to show the real damage i have taken from the ped, it normaly shows 8, 7, etc. Shouldn't it show for example, with a 1 shot kill. "100"?

I'd just like to know what i should use and the proper stuff to make this work. I'm a beginner, so i'm sorry if anything of this stuff is really stupid to learn, and thanks for your attention.

Here's the code:

local screenWidth, screenHeight = guiGetScreenSize ( ) 
  
kill = {} 
  
addEventHandler("onClientPedDamage",root, 
    function ( attaker, weapon, loss) 
    local lostHealth = loss 
     
        if ( attaker and attaker == localPlayer ) then 
            if ( kill[localPlayer] ) then 
                killTimer(kill[localPlayer]) 
            end 
            dxDrawText ( lostHealth, 44, screenHeight - 41, screenWidth, screenHeight, tocolor ( 0, 0, 0, 255 ), 1.02, "pricedown" ) 
            dxDrawText ( lostHealth, 44, screenHeight - 43, screenWidth, screenHeight, tocolor ( 255, 255, 255, 255 ), 1, "pricedown" )   
            kill[localPlayer] = setTimer(dxDrawText,5000,1,red) 
        end 
    end 
)

Then how am i supposed to make the text display when the player is getting shot? I tried with onClientRender and nothing happens.

It's makeno sense the Event is onClientPedDamage and You defined attacker like this

if ( attaker and attaker == localPlayer ) then it's worng because it's for players use should use

if ( attaker and (getElementType(attacker) == 'Ped' ) then ...

and use should use this also ,

losshealth = getElementHealth()

Not Tested !

function draw ( ) 
    dxDrawText ( tostring(loss), 44, screenHeight - 41, screenWidth, screenHeight, tocolor ( 0, 0, 0, 255 ), 1.02, "pricedown" ) 
end 
  
addEventHandler ( 'onClientPlayerDamage', root, 
    function ( attacker, weapon, _, loss ) 
        if attacker and attacker ~= source then 
            addEventHandler ( 'onClientRender', root, draw ); 
            messageTimer = setTimer ( removeEventHandler, 5000, 1, 'onClientRender', draw ); 
        end 
    end 
)

Both your codes will not work, loss is not defined in the client render.

function drawDamage ( ) 
    dxDrawText ( damageLoss, 44, screenHeight - 41, screenWidth, screenHeight, tocolor ( 0, 0, 0, 255 ), 1.02, "pricedown" ) 
end 
  
addEventHandler ( 'onClientPedDamage', root, 
function ( attacker, weapon, _, loss ) 
    if attacker and getElementType(attacker) == 'ped' then 
        damageLoss = tostring(loss) 
        addEventHandler ( 'onClientRender', root, drawDamage ) 
        messageTimer = setTimer ( removeEventHandler, 5000, 1, 'onClientRender', drawDamage ) 
    end 
end 
)
