View Full Version : scripting journals

07-11-2010, 02:17 PM
Hi again,
once again I am stuck. I understand there is a way to script journal entries and I can do this. I also know that there is a way to run a script on the opening of a placeable. I have a character that is set to die when he is spawned. I need a journal entry to be added once the corpse has been examined. What I need to know is how would I script that and would GetIsOpen work for a corpse of only for proper placeables.

Try this tutorial for the journal entries

I tried that but couldn't find the OnOpen command.

All I could find was the GetIsOpen command.

Ok if I understand you correctly, a npc is killed...creating a corpse...and once you examine the corpse/click on it..the journal entry pops.

Check this thread..scan down about half way where stoffe jumps in...she knows her s^$#...I think you can do it that way and instead where they are putting create object, you would put the addjournalentry script functions to produce your journal entry.


Hope this is what you're looking for, good luck

Thanks but I get abouts six errors with the script which no one else has so I am going to try a different method.

Thanks anyway.
