Need help with making examine area unactive!


I'm working on a custom story where I want a examine area to disappear (become unactive) when the player has touched it once. I use SetEntityCallbackFunc, but the examine area is still there after I've touched it.. Do areas even count as enteties? Here's my script:

void OnStart()
SetEntityCallbackFunc("ExamineArea_2", "TextGone1");

void TextGone1(string &in asEntity, string &in type)
SetEntityActive("ExamineArea_2", false);

Please help!

I don't think you can create a callback from an examine-area... If you just want text to show up when you click it, why not just use a regular area?

You can use the SetMessage("Category", "Entry", 0);
It'll work fine.

Trying is the first step to success.

Use SetEntityPlayerInteractCallback.

PHP Code: (Select All)
void OnStart()

void TextGone1(string &in asEntity
