Sleep function makes the whole script wait

Recommended Posts

Reck1501

I'm trying to use Sleep(100); to do a rainbow car,

void set_rainbow_car(){	Sleep(100);	Vehicle veh = GET_VEHICLE_PED_IS_USING(PLAYER_PED_ID());	SET_VEHICLE_CUSTOM_PRIMARY_COLOUR(veh, rand() % 255, rand() % 255, rand() % 255);	if (_DOES_VEHICLE_HAVE_SECONDARY_COLOUR(veh))		SET_VEHICLE_CUSTOM_SECONDARY_COLOUR(veh, rand() % 255, rand() % 255, rand() % 255);}

but instead of just making that function sleep/wait, it makes the WHOLE script sleep/wait 100 milliseconds

Sleep = suspend thread

Wait = GTA suspends your script

 

result = same

 

you need to use GetTickCount() and check the value

 

(btw... cool idea, now i want to make this lol)

DWORD timeColorChanged = 0; while (true){    DWORD currentTickCount = GetTickCount();    if (currentTickCount - timeColorChanged > 100)    {        timeColorChanged = currentTickCount;         //change color here    }     WAIT(0);}

Yea, no sh*t, Sherlock.

Anyway are you serious ? Sleep suspends thread which executes the code for interval, WAIT executes other scripts while skipping your for interval. You need to learn how to program with single thread. Have you seen how Alex did with graphics drawing and then checking what keys have been pressed ?

 

Best wishes,

Paul.

I was just about to say this. +1

Sorry if I showed like an asshole. I just was pissed off of some other thing.

 

Best wishes,
