BG2: ToB Script Actions

This action can be used to do nothing - many characters walk around randomly or stand in one place doing nothing:

  IF
    True()
  THEN
    RESPONSE #50
      RandomWalk()
    RESPONSE #50
      NoAction()
  END
  

NoAction() is also commonly used as a hanging action in targeting blocks. This is a matter of good practice rather than necessary. The NoAction() action will never be rum since the block always returns false, but the having an action in the scripting block allows scripting programs to accurately check for errors.

  IF
    See(NearestEnemyOf(Myself))
    False()
  THEN
    RESPONSE #100
      NoAction()
  END
  

This action can be used to control another creature. A creature referenced as the result of SetTokenObject is not a valid target for the ActionOverride action. The following is from the Irenicus cutscene after leaving his abode in chapter 1.

  IF
    True()
  THEN
    RESPONSE #100
      CutSceneId(Player1)
      Wait(1)
      FadeToColor([20.0],0)
      Wait(2)
      JumpToPoint([869.340])
      MoveViewPoint([909.346],INSTANT)
      ActionOverride(Player2,JumpToPoint([825.370]))
      ActionOverride(Player3,JumpToPoint([886.384]))
      ActionOverride(Player4,JumpToPoint([952.386]))
      ActionOverride(Player5,JumpToPoint([987.362]))
      ActionOverride(Player6,JumpToPoint([1005.404]))
      Face(10)
      ActionOverride(Player2,Face(10))
      ActionOverride(Player3,Face(10))
      ActionOverride(Player4,Face(8))
      ActionOverride(Player5,Face(6))
      ActionOverride(Player6,Face(6))
      ActionOverride("Anomen",JumpToPoint([909.346]))
      ActionOverride("Anomen",Face(10))
      Wait(1)
      FadeFromColor([20.0],0)
      Wait(2)
      ActionOverride("Anomen",StartDialogueNoSet(Player1))
  END

This action instructs the active creature to continually attack the target, i.e. the active creature will not switch targets until its target is dead.

  IF
    See([EVILCUTOFF])
    Class(LastSeenBy(),MAGE_ALL)
    !InParty(LastSeenBy())
   THEN
     RESPONSE #100
       Attack(LastSeenBy())
  END
  

This action has not been seen to produce any results.

This action is used to create a creature - either an NPC, a neutral creature or an enemy. NewObject is the filename of the creature to create, Location is the coordinates to create the creature at ([x.y] format) and direction being the direction the creature is facing (0-15, 0 being south and the facing values increasing as the character turns clockwise). Note that a coordinate of [-1.-1] will create the creature next to the active creature.

This script is from the area script for the Copper Coronet (AR0406) and creates extra guards when the Player is discovered in the off limits area.

  IF
    Global("CopperGuards","GLOBAL",1)
  THEN
    RESPONSE #100
      CreateCreature("ccguard1",[2338.412],14)
      CreateCreature("ccguard2",[2318.457],14)

      CreateCreature("ccguard2",[2791.831],6)
      CreateCreature("ccguard1",[1981.762],14)
      CreateCreature("ccguard1",[1286.1500],14)
  END
  

8 Dialog(O:Object*)
This action instructs the active creature to initiate dialog with the target creature. Dialog will not be initiated if the creature using this action has been assigned a dialog that has all top level conditions returning false.

  IF
    GlobalTimerExpired("Yeslick","GLOBAL")
    Global("FLOODED","GLOBAL",0)
  THEN
    RESPONSE #100
      Dialogue([PC])
  END
  

This action instructs the active creature to drop the specified item at the specified location (relative to the active creature). The active creature must have the item to be dropped. Note that a coordinate of [-1.-1] will drop the item next to the active creature.

  IF
    Clicked([ANYONE])
    Range(LastTrigger,12)
  THEN
    RESPONSE #100
      DropItem("SCRL1B",[345.1210])
  END
  

This action is used to change the allegiance of the active creature to enemy (making them hostile to the PC). This example script, from a peasant, will turn the creature hostile if it is attacked.

  IF
    AttackedBy([GOODCUTOFF],Myself)
    Allegiance(Myself,NEUTRAL)
  THEN
    RESPONSE #100
      Enemy()
  END

This action instructs the active creature to enter Detect Traps modal state. This action can be used for any creature (not just thieves) though success in detecting traps is dependent on points in the Find Traps skill.

  IF
    ActionListEmpty()
    !Exists([EVILCUTOFF])
    !ModalState( Myself,DETECTTRAPS)
    OR(2)
    !StateCheck(Myself,STATE_INVISIBLE)

  THEN
    RESPONSE #100
      FindTraps()
  END
  

This action has not been seen to produce any results.

This action instructs the active creature to give the specified item (parameter 1) to the specified target (parameter 2). The active creature must possess the item to pass it (holding it within a container within the inventory is fine). The sample script makes uses of modified IDS files (action, instant, trigger and svtiobj) though such modification are not necessary to use the GiveItem action itself.

  IF
    HPPercentLT(Myself,40)
    !HasItem("potn52",Myself)
  THEN
    RESPONSE #100
      GlobalShout(3015)
      SetGlobal("KRNEEDITEM","GLOBAL",1)
  END
  
  IF
    Heard([GOODCUTOFF],3015)
    HasItem("potn52",Myself)
    HPPercentGT(Myself,40)
    Global("KRNEEDITEM","GLOBAL",1)
  THEN
    RESPONSE #100
      MoveToObject(LastHeardBy())
      GiveItem("potn52",LastHeardBy())
      SetGlobal("KRNEEDITEM","GLOBAL",0)
  END
  

This action is used in conjunction with the ReceivedOrder trigger, and works in a similar way to a global shout. The action passes a numeric order to the specified creature. Only one creature at a time responds to an order, and creatures to not detect their own orders.

  IF
    See([EVILCUTOFF])
    OR(3)
    Class(Myself,FIGHTER_ALL)
    Class(Myself,RANGER_ALL)

  THEN
    RESPONSE #100
      RunAwayFrom([EVILCUTOFF],120)
      Hide()
  END
  

This action acts similar to shout, but does not accept values. The range of the Help action is slightly larger than the default visual radius of NPCs.

  IF
    HitBy([ANYONE],CRUSHING)
  THEN
    RESPONSE #50
      Help()
      Attack(NearestEnemyOf(Myself))
    RESPONSE #50

  THEN
    RESPONSE #100
      Help()
      AttackReevaluate(NearestEnemyOf(Myself),30)
  END
  

This action instructs the active creature to attempt to Hide in Shadows. This action can be used for any creature (not just thieves) though success in hiding is dependent on points in the Stealth skill. A hidden creature is treated as STATE_INVISIBLE.

  IF
    !See([EVILCUTOFF])
    OR(2)
    !StateCheck(Myself,STATE_INVISIBLE)
    !StateCheck(Myself,STATE_IMPROVEDINVISIBLITY)
  THEN
    RESPONSE #100
      Hide()
  END
  

This action adds the active creature to the party. If the party is currently full the 'select party members' dialog is shown. JoinParty clears the ActionQueue of the active creature.

  IF
    See([PC])
    Global("KRJOINPARTY","GLOBAL",0)
  THEN
    RESPONSE #100
      JoinParty()
  END
  

This action has not been seen to produce any results.

This action causes the active creature to leave the party. This action calls DropInventory() as part of its execution.

  IF
    HappinessLT(Myself,-299)

      ChangeAIScript("",DEFAULT)
      SetLeavePartyDialogFile()
      LeaveParty()
      EscapeArea()
  END

This action instructs the active creature to move to the specified object. The action does not update the current position of the actor, saved in ARE files. The example script shows the creature moving towards the nearest enemy.

  IF
    See(NearestEnemyOf())
    !Range(NearestEnemyOf(),4)
  THEN
    RESPONSE #100
      MoveToObject(NearestEnemyOf())
  END
  

This action causes the active creature to move to the specified coordinates. The action will update the position of creatures as stored in ARE files (first by setting the coordinates of the destination point, then by setting the coordinates of the current point once the destination is reached).

  IF
    True()
  THEN
    RESPONSE #100
      MoveToPoint([526.1193])
      Wait(3)

  IF
    HPPercentLT(Myself,15)
  THEN
    RESPONSE #100
     Panic()
  END
  

This action instructs the active creature to attempt to pickpocket the target. This action can be used for any creature (not just thieves) though success in pick pocketing is dependent on points in the Pickpocket skill. Note that a failed pickpocket attempt is treated as an attack, hence the Attacked() trigger will return true if a pickpocket attempt is failed.

  IF
    See([ANYONE])
    OR(2)
    Class(Myself,THIEF_ALL)
    Class(Myself,BARD_ALL)
  THEN

  THEN
    RESPONSE #100
      RemoveTraps("Trap01")
  END
  

This action causes the active creature to run away from the specified creature, for the specified time. The time parameter is measured in AI updates, which default to 15 updates per second. Occasionally, fleeing creatures stop to attack another creature.

  IF
    HPPercentLT(Myself,30)
  THEN
    RESPONSE #100
      RunAwayFrom(LastAttackerOf(Myself),180)

      SetGlobal("KRINAR EA","AR0400",1)
  END
  

This action causes the active creature to cast the specified spell at the target object. The spell must currently be memorised by the caster, and may be interrupted while being cast. The caster must meet the level requirements of the spell. For the RES version of the action, the spell name can not consist of only numbers, should be written in upper case and should be no more than 7 characters long. This action may not be reliable.

  END
  

This action turns any undead creatures within range of the active creature. This action can be used for any creature (not just paladins/clerics) though success in turning is dependent on the Turn Undead level of the creature, which is only calculated for paladins and clerics. The chance to successfully turn undead is based on creatures level and class. Paladins turn at 2 levels less than clerics of the same level. An undead creature will be destroyed/controlled if its level is more than 7 levels below the active creatures turn undead level. An undead creature may be turned (i.e. forced to flee) is its level is equal to, or up to 4 levels below, the active creatures turn undead level.

34 UseItemSlotAbility(O:Target*, I:Slot*, I:Ability*)

34 UseItemSlot(O:Target*, I:Slot*)
This action instructs the active creature to use the specified item (object) on the specified target (target). The ability number (i.e. extended header index) to use may be specified. This action is most often used to allow use of potions and wands. The item to be used must exist in the active creature's inventory (not in a container within the inventory) - though it need not be equipped.

  IF
    HPPercentLT(Myself,50)
    HasItem("potn52",Myself)

  END
  

This action instructs the script parser to continue looking for actions in the active creatures action list. This is mainly included in scripts for efficiency. Continue should also be appended to any script blocks added to the top of existing scripts, to ensure correct functioning of any blocks which include the OnCreation trigger. Continue may prevent actions being completed until the script parser has finished its execution cycle. Continue() must be the last command in an action list to function correctly. Use of continue in a script block will cause the parser to treater subsequent empty response blocks as though they contained a Continue() command - this parsing can be stopped by including a NoAction() in the empty response block.

  IF
    See(NearestEnemyOf())
    !InParty(NearestEnemyOf())
