Return value

The game type currently being played. For readability there are definitions defined in zdefs.acs as follows:

  • GAME_SINGLE_PLAYER = 0
Solo play.
  • GAME_NET_COOPERATIVE = 1
Cooperative net game.
  • GAME_NET_DEATHMATCH = 2
Deathmatch net game.
  • GAME_TITLE_MAP = 3
Title map

Examples

With this command it is possible to do things such as give an explanation about the map to the player.

script 1 ENTER
{
    if (GameType () != GAME_NET_DEATHMATCH)
        Print (s:"This is a deathmatch only map!");
    else
        Print (s:"BobDM1\nBy Bob");
}

Another use could be to unlock extra areas in GAME_NET_COOPERATIVE mode.
