NPC Server Questions

Okay, I need to ask a couple of npc server questions b/c i'm converting non p2p npcs to the npc server kinda server side scripts. I scripted for the npc server b4, but it was a way long time ago and i dont remember every detail about the differences between client/server side.

1) If I set a this.variable from the client side part of a script, will the server side part of the script be able to read what I wrote to it?

2) If I change an npc's x/y coordinates from client side, will the npc coordinates be changed globally?

3) Can client.strings be changed from client side?

4) Does triggeraction server side to client side work now?

Doubtful. I don't think it'll even let you change them from the clientside.



Yep.



Hmm. Depends. Not to a specific client, but you can do a triggeraction on where they are and they'll get it.
i love how u gave an opposite answer to everything saga said nearly o_O

Another question on the other end of the spectrum:
Can client weapons access (read-only) server-string/vars?

Utterly confused now...

For example: Client system checks a server-string for it's player's account name and if that player's account name is in that server string, it does something to the player... Which should I use? I would guess serverr but i've never heard of it...

If I touched this npc that's on an npc server, would the message say "blah blah", or would it be blank? I really don't get what you mean by serverr.strings, and i nevcer heard of it =P, so i'm liek making a test thingy

NPC Code:

if(playerenters) {
setshape 1,32,32;
}
if(playertouchsme) {
setstring server.red,Blah Blah;
}
//#CLIENTSIDE
if(playerenters||timeout) {
message serverr.red;
timeout=0.05;
}
