Hello Everyone, In this topic I will be posting some of my tricks for DYOM :-

1.Making Actors Get inside Car in a cutscene:-
Step 1:- Make sure that the car showing in the cutscene has the player sitting inside it.
Step 2:- Make a Actor of any player model and in Gang menu set him as friend and follow player.
Step 3:- Then make a cutscene and make sure that the player who is sitting inside the car is unseen in the cutscene.
Step 4:- Adjust the time at a considerable amount(preferably 4 sec)
Run your Mission and Check

2.Making a car fall down in a cutscene-
Step 1:-Make any car.
Step 2:-When it asks you the position of the car Sit in the car and jump it over any cliff (for example)
Step 3:- You will fall down after getting out of the car but will not get hurt. Set the other options and press ready.
Step 4:- Make a cutscene showing the car.
Voila! in the cutscene the car will fall down.

3.Tip:- An Actor who is a friend and is set to follow player will Swim with the player, If the Player goes in the water.

4. Adding a 'Blackout' effect between two cutscenes:-
Let me explain this, Suppose you made two cutscenes and location of
both of them is far away from each other (for eg. A cutscene in Los Santos
then a cutscene in Las Venturas) and the after the first cutscene is over
the second starts quickly at Las Venturas and this doesn't look all that great. So to add a 'Blackout'
effect try this:-
Step 1 :- Make your first cutscene.(say at Las Venturas)
Step 2:- Add a teleport anywhere.
Step 3:- Then make the Next Cutscene.(say at Los Santos)
Step 4:- Play your mission. You will notice that after the first cutscene is over
the next one will start after a gap of 4(approx.)sec. This effect looks neat and
can be used for ending cutscenes etc.
Adding a Teleport between the cutscenes adds to time taken to load the next cutscene.

5.Making an actor SWIM in a cutscene:-
Try out this trick to show an actor swiming in a cutscene.
Step 1:- Make a teleport objective while swiming in water.
Step 2:- Swim to a considerable distance from the teleport and add an actor.
Step 3:- Set the Gang as Friends and to follow player.
Step 4:- Make a cutscene showing the Actor.
Step 5:- Run your mission.Voila! the Actor Swims.(because he will follow the player:P.
Note:- Make sure you place the teleport first and then create the Actor, because if you create
the actor first then the actor will drown and die.

6.Fix for the Invisible checkpoint while creating a mission:-

There is a bug in DYOM4.1 that after you have created 2 or more checkpoints
and you create more, the checkpoints wont be visible while creating them.
Try this fix:-
Let us a say that you have one invisible checkpoint.
Step 1 :- After you have created an Invisible checkpoint. A yellow marker appears on it
but the check point is invisible.
Step 2 :-Make a cutscene showing the invisible checkpoint and you will see that the checkpoint
appears.
Step 3:- Press ENTER to cancel the cutscene.Voila! the checkpoint is visible now!

7.Making car explode:-
Try this trick to make a car explode
Step 1:-Create a car and when it asks about health set the Car's health to 100.
Step 2:- You may or may not create a cutscene showing the car.

Note:-The car explodes after a few seconds. Because setting the health to 100 causes it to catch fire only not explode.

If you encounter any problem then pm me. biggrin.gif

about that making car fall in cutscene, some people might want car be falling down at location which doesnt have any cliffs or ramps near it, my solution to this is this:
create big object, like gate and use jetpack to get on it and add car, then just delete object and car will stay in place and fall in mission gameplay

Thats how I implemented a parachuting segment in a mission I made, I placed a teleport using this method and it works nicely, albeit a few rare bugs lol


Can someone tell me how to add extra subtitle text? In the mission 'Nightmare School' from the The Survivors series, there is a part where two characters are speaking to eachother and the subtitle text changes every few seconds without any cutscenes whatsoever. It all happens completely while in control of the player, how can that be done? I can't find out from that mission because the author made the wise decision to lock the file.

Use the timeout objective to do that. Make a timeout objective ,set the time and type the dialogs and make sure you set 'Show No Time'. This is how it is done. biggrin.gif
