bool PlayerInGame (int playernumber)

Usage

Returns true if the player [0..7] is in the game and false if not. If it returns false, that player is not counted by PlayerCount.

Examples

This example picks a player at random of the players that are in the game. It then cripples this player by reducing their speed for 30 seconds. The script then prints a message for whether the player quit, was killed, or survived the 30 seconds. If the player survived, their speed is restored.

int alive[8];

script 1 enter
{
  alive[PlayerNumber()] = TRUE;
  Thing_ChangeTID(0, 1000 + PlayerNumber());
}

script 2 respawn
{
  alive[PlayerNumber()] = TRUE;
  Thing_ChangeTID(0, 1000 + PlayerNumber());
} 

script 3 death
{
  alive[PlayerNumber()] = FALSE;
}

script 4 open
{
  int p, tics;
  while (GameType() == GAME_NET_DEATHMATCH) //don't run otherwise
  {
    delay(35 * 60);
    
    do { 
      p = random(0, 7);
   } while (!PlayerInGame(p) && !alive[p]); 

    SetActorProperty(1000 + p, APROP_Speed, 0.5);
    printbold(s:"Everybody get ", n:p + 1, s:"!");
    
    tics = 0;
    do { 
      tics++;
      delay(1);
    } while (tics <= 35 * 30 && alive[p] && PlayerInGame(p));
      
    
    if (tics <= 1050)
    {
      if (!alive[p])
        printbold(s:"Well that takes care of that!");
      else
        printbold(s:"The quitter!");
    }
    else
    {
      SetActorProperty(1000 + p, APROP_Speed, 1.0);
      printbold(n:p + 1, s:" dodged the bullet!");
    }
  }
}
