I was thinking about this thing. If you want to ask "how to" do something in DYOM with the cutscenes, anims or even you got a problem then ask it here and some of us will answer it. I thought to make this Ask and Answer thing so you won't have to post a new topic or post a new topic of a question that was answered. So you'll now find answered questions here!
EVERYBODY CAN ANSWER NOT ONLY ME!
Q: How i do to friendly actor make a drive-by(shot to enemies) while im driving,?
A: I believe actors will always have some trouble shooting enemies or even following the player.. but that is AI for you. You can be driving the car and create a friend actor with a weapon, either have him follow you or put him in the car, drive by the enemies slow enough so your friend and fire at them. If you have any problems just tell me if you do. -answered by:Doublepulse
Q: How i can intrduce a cheat without typiing on-game. for example i want to enable the aim when im driving a bike or something. or can be on an object that could make the same funtion or i should have to edit the Dyom01.dat file and introduce a command to do it?
A: Im unsure if this is even possible, I really doubt it is..unless you give a link to a modification that allows it. Or ofcourse the cheat. - answered by Doublepulse
Q: Why the crashes when i put more than 100 points when i enable enter nearest car?
A: Only answer I know from that is that is a Route-point bug. You cant put more than 100 points or it will crash. when you get to 299 it will crash. If you need a way of making the location longer.. use less points where the route is straight route. Like instead of using 10 points just to get across the free way.. use like 5. It doesn't make too much of a difference as you should be still going the same path. - answered by Doublepulse
Q: i wanna so much know how to do like explosion explodes when its cutscene like the car drives and the explode
A: First make an object. Go to Objects and select the explosion object. Second put the explosion object where you want and then make a cutscene. - answered by LeonCJ
Q: All i want to know is how to add color in the text your writing in DYOM?????
A: Hold SHIFT and press 2 and it will make ~ so:
~w~ - White
~r~ - Red
~b~ - Blue

Q: I'm probably going to seem like a dumbass noob for asking this question, but how do you hide the player character? For example, let's say that I want a cutscene of the same actor as the player doing an animation. I can't do that if the player character is in the way, standing still, doing nothing. The only way I know of doing this is by teleporting the player somewhere else, make the cutscene, then teleport him back. That's tedious and glitchy. Is there a way to hide the player? I have seen it done before in many missions.
A: Actually, you can't hide player, but you can change his position so he will not be in front of the cutscene. - answered by Ilir
A2: before the cutscene, teleport the player character away from the place where the cutscene will be. - answered by Jimmy_Leppard
Q: Hey everyone... i need help... when my mission is complete, my game crashes... does anyone know to fix this? thank you for answering and sorry for my bad english
A: Long missions or missions with lots of information will typically crash the game once they are complete. But this is not really a problem as you have already completed the mission and you can simply re-start San Andreas and continue. - answered by Chimpso
Q: first i have download SAPD chronicles... and it was crash when i complete the mission... but i download grove vs ballas and it crash when i palying it... please help
A: Missions can crash all the time due to poor design. As I said before, the game crashing after mission success is not a problem. Just restart SA and play the next mission. - answered by Chimpso
Q: Hi everyone, I'm just change my version of CLEO to CLEO4. And now, I can't SAVE/LOAD in DYOM. Any help ? Thx.
A: DYOM only supports CLEO 3 I'm afraid. You will have to re-install it. - answered by Chimpso
Q: Any mission I creat in DYOM crashs the game when I go test and I can't finish them because the more I try other times when the game hangs at a certain time and do not understand why it happens! I have no other mod besides DYOM.
A: Maybe you use lot actors,cars,objects or something same. - answered by JOJOXX
