How to get collision trigger in C++

Recommended Posts

With Lua I could use Script:Collision( entity, position, normal, speed) and place out a box-trigger.

Found a video illustrating this in Lua:

But how could I do that in C++?

I have looked in Entity.h for clues and I suspect it might be OnCollision(...) but not sure howto. Maybe this should be mentioned in the documentation with an example.

You can load your map and store all objects like this:

Map::Load("Maps/mymap.map(), StoreWorldObjects());

 

and then in your storeWorldObjects() function you can look up triggers. (Note that CSG objects need an empty script or a mass for them to be picked up by the load hook.)

void StoreWorldObjects(Entity* entity, Object* extra)
{
if(entity->GetKeyValue("name") == "Trigger")
  {
    //Make a new trgger or something
    trigger = new MyTrigger();
  }
}

 

If you have made your own trigger class you can add a trigger hook in there:

void MyCollisionHook(Entity* entity0, Entity* entity1, float* position, float* normal, float speed)
{
//A collision was made with the trigger
}


MyTrigger::MyTrigger()
{
    entity->AddHook(Entity::CollisionHook, MyCollisionHook);
}

MyTrigger::MyTrigger()
{
entity->AddHook(Entity::CollisionHook, MyCollisionHook);
}

Okay that is working but now I got another problem when hidding the triggerbox in LE (Appearance->Hidden). Can't the box be invisible?
