View Full Version : TogglePlayerSpectating + SetPlayerPos

22/11/2010, 08:21 PM
So basicly when I do this under OnPlayerSpawn:

TogglePlayerSpectating(playerid, false);
SetPlayerPos(playerid, enumarray[pid][X], enumarray[pid][Y], enumarray[pid][Z]);
printf("OnSpawn X: %f, Y: %f, Z: %f",enumarray[pid][X], enumarray[pid][Y], enumarray[pid][Z]);

It calls OnPlayerSpawn twice, and spawns the player on the coords stated in AddPlayerClass, instead of SetPlayerPos. The weird thing is, that the enumarray[pid] values are changed as well, here's the console output. LoadPlayer is the coordinates loaded from the SQL, OnSpawn is the code above, which is under OnPlayerSpawn callback:

[23:20:07] LoadPlayer X: 1495.380004, Y: -700.083007, Z: 94.750000
[23:20:07] OnSpawn X: 1495.380004, Y: -700.083007, Z: 94.750000
[23:20:07] OnSpawn X: 816.750671, Y: -1361.655273, Z: -0.507799 // Coords from AddPlayerClass, also under OnPlayerDeath, the enumarray[pid] is changed to these coords

So.. yeah. The problem is, that it doesn't spawn the coords from SQL, or LoadPlayer. But instead spawns player "twice". I use the TogglePlayerSpectating, to get rid of the "Spawn Buttons" on player connect. Any workarounds?

First of all, real sorry about the double post. But in case someone cares - here's what I learnt, and how I 'fixed' it:

It seems that it wasn't TogglePlayerSpectating that reset the players position, but just called OnPlayerSpawn twice. And OnPlayerSpawn callback did the reset to AddPlayerClass position. The workaround I found is simply delaying the actual player spawn-setup by 200ms with a timer. Here's the code:

public OnPlayerSpawn(playerid)
if( !PLAYER[Spec] )Spawning(playerid);
else PlayerSpec(playerid, false);
return 1;
public PlayerSpec(playerid, toggle)
PLAYER[Spec] = toggle;
TogglePlayerSpectating(playerid, toggle);
return 1;
Delay:Spawning[200, i](playerid)
SetPlayerSkin(playerid, PLAYER[Skin]);
SetPlayerInterior(playerid, PLAYER[Interior]);
SetPlayerVirtualWorld(playerid, PLAYER[VW]);
SetPlayerPos(playerid, PLAYER[X], PLAYER[Y], PLAYER[Z]);
SetPlayerFacingAngle(playerid, PLAYER[Angle]);
SetPlayerHealth(playerid, PLAYER[HP]);
SetPlayerArmour(playerid, PLAYER[Armor]);

And just in case someone's wondering:
#define PLAYER PlayerData[playerid]

Only took me what... 2 hours of messing around with different ideas? :confused: Finally resorted on the one I actually didn't want to use, but at least it works.

TogglePlayerSpectating respawns you, which is why OnPlayerSpawn was called twice.

Well, yeah.. but, why would it set PLAYER[X/Y/Z] to a different value is what I didn't really get. Only callback that set these values is OnPlayerDeath, and this callback didn't get called.. If it simply would have spawned twice, but with correct coordinates, it wouldn't be a problem at all. In fact I wouldn't even have notice it.
