How do I make a person I talk to explode? For example:

- Help me! Please! [NPC]

- Calm down, the ship is under attack. We need to get out of here. [PC]

- Ok. Let's run to the.. AHHH (Make NPC explode and die) [NPC]

Edit: For K1

Are you actually trying to make the NPC blow up (in a not so pleasant but easier way of explaining it) blowing all the NPC's body parts off or something, something which i can no doubt bet my entire body you cannot do, or are you trying to just make an explosion effect, a bit like a grenade over the NPC and then he dies?

No, just a grenade effect.

I beleive something like this should work:

void main() {
effect eVisual = EffectVisualEffect( VFX_FNF_GRENADE_THERMAL_DETONATOR );
effect eKill = EffectDeath(FALSE, TRUE, TRUE);

ApplyEffectAtLocation(DURATION_TYPE_INSTANT, eVisual, GetLocation(OBJECT_SELF));
DelayCommand(0.2, ApplyEffectToObject(DURATION_TYPE_INSTANT, eKill, OBJECT_SELF));
}

Let me know, i haven't tested it but according to my mate it does. :)

It could probably be done, though it would no doubt look more amusing than dramatic, and would require a lot of work for such a small thing. :)

You could make multiple copies of a body model and make all of it transparent/invisible except for one body part... then when the creature "explodes" you remove it and spawn in the multiple creatures each only having one body part visible, force push them around and then "kill" them. :nutz3:

Edit: You may keep your body, I think I'll only need one, and I already have that. :p

Do your mate know if there is such a script for K1?

That script should work for K1, afaik there is those effects in K1.

When I compiled it there was an error:

Error: To many arguments specified in call to "EffectDeath"

Well, that function is in KotOR 1, I'm not sure why it isn't compiling, when i tried it without the fixed nwscript it didn't work but with the fixed nwscript it compiled, if you download the fixed nwscript here (http://www.masterzionosiskotorsite.com/Mods/nwscript.nss), it should then compile without errors.

Where do I put the fixed nwscript?

Master Zionosis

Ok, this an example:

I use nwnnsscomp application, i created a folder, for this example, my folder is here

"C:/SWKotOR Mod Apps/Script Compiling/" then in here you place the fixed nwscript and the 2 vital programs to compile the script "nwnnsscomp.exe" and "_CompileAll.bat", also in the "Script Compiling" folder you must create an "Override" folder and place your .nss scripts in there, and then go back a folder and double click the "_CompileAll.bat", then you should get the box that tells you the status of the compile, then back in the Override folder you made you should have 3 files, the original .nss the new .ncs and the last and not needed .ndb.

I think you may have posted the wrong picture.

Edit: Well, have you added another script to the one i posted?

Mindtwistah

Master Zionosis

Have you edited the script i posted and added more functions to it?

Ignore my previous comment, the first time i saw your picture it was displaying a .dlg file, it's not now though.

No.

The EffectDeath() function exist in KOTOR 1, but it has one less parameter than in TSL. In TSL the third parameter can be set to prevent the victim's corpse to fade away like it usually does after a few seconds after someone is killed. In KOTOR 1 you'll have to set that separately. Like:


void main() {
effect eVisual = EffectVisualEffect( VFX_FNF_GRENADE_THERMAL_DETONATOR );
effect eKill = EffectDeath();

SetIsDestroyable(FALSE);
ApplyEffectAtLocation(DURATION_TYPE_INSTANT, eVisual, GetLocation(OBJECT_SELF));
DelayCommand(0.2, ApplyEffectToObject(DURATION_TYPE_INSTANT, eKill, OBJECT_SELF));
}


If you try to compile a script using three parameters to EffectDeath() for KOTOR 1 it will fail since it won't match the function signature in that version of NWScript.

Thank you master zionosis for giving me the script and thank you stoffe for correcting it. :P

Ohhh i did it again, it's the bloody "FALSE, TRUE, TRUE" bit, arggg, i swear I'm never giving scripting advice again *touch wood*, lol, well, i was partly there.

Is there a script like this so they don't die but dissapear? And if possible, with an ice grenade effect, like when you enter the rakatan mind prison.
