Post Noob Help
Trying to make it where if any actor has a Pistol in his held device it will fling him

Code:
for actor in MovableMan.Actors do if actors.HeldDevice("Pistol") then MovableMan.Actors do actors.Vel = Vector(3, -10) end end

Keep getting a error of needs a = somewhere.
kinda pieced this code together from differnt people on this forum(didn't work)

Pistol is an HDFirearm, not a HeldDevice, methinks.

Needs to be this:

Code:
for actor in MovableMan.Actors do if (actors.HeldDevice =="Pistol") then MovableMan.Actors do actors.Vel = Vector(3, -10) end end


You weren't checking to see if it was something or not: you were instead setting the variable to that.

nice try but all of those are wrong

okay, heres what mistakes you made. pistol can't have () that's only for varibles. a or in your codes actor is just a new name for an item, it isn't special, and you sited a different variable "actors" which caused a (nil'). even then it only works for the instant that you press enter. for it to be ongoing you need to set up a timer & put the code into a notepad. im still learning about timers

P.S. spaces arent read, they dont acctually matter


It's funny how wrong your post is.

What are you talking about pistol can't have () it's only for variables? () is for functions. It usually encases arguments. How the ♥♥♥♥ is that going to cause nil? Wrong again. An instant that he presses enter? Ongoing? What? Who mentioned that. Augh.

This isn't working because the variable doesn't exist YOU GUYS.

Oh and spaces do matter because

Code:
forainMovableMan.Actorsdoifa.HDFirearm==Pistolthena.Vel=Vector(3, -10)endend


is not going to work.
