  1. Thanks, that worked now! I'm more of a PHP coder so it didn't even occur to me to cast them as floats if they were already integers, as this calculation works fine in PHP (I checked to make before I posted the OP to make sure my maths was correct!). Anyway, this now gives the right result: integer percentageMemory = llRound(((float)used_memory / (float)total_memory) * 100);
  2. OK, hopefully someone can help me here as whatever I do always results in a 0 (zero) output! I'm just trying to do a simple calculation to work out the percentage of memory. It really shouldn't be so difficult, should it?? I thought maybe there was limitation with how much maths could be done in one line, so I split the two calculations up and it still doesn't work as expected. The calculation should look something like: 34968 / 65536 * 100 which rounded up should be about 53%. I wasn't sure if you could use parenthesis in it or not, but it didn't work anyway (eg: (34968 / 65536)
  3. Hmm, that's a shame. It'd be handy to be able to grab the "collision". Oh well!
  4. Cast ray is all very new to me so this may be a silly question, but is there a way to detect the "hit" from a cast ray weapon? The traditional collision detection obviously doesn't work, and from what I do understand (if I read it right) of cast ray, it operates on a channel number type of thing between the weapon and target to detect the hit? So can you detect a "collision" if you don't know the original script of the weapon system for like a generic cast ray collision detection?
  5. Thanks, this should hopefully accomplish what I'm aiming for Thanks for all the help!
  6. OK, final question then to make my idea work if possible. I'd like to keep the scanner script separate just for tidiness (since I can't use an include() function) -- so can't lists be sent between scripts with a llMessageLinked ? I don't quite understand how that function works across scripts, and the examples on the docs don't really make it any clearer to me..
  7. I understand the need for typecasting at times, I'm just getting confused about how to do this within LSL, inside a loop whilst using llListFindList if the initial list I made isn't counted as a list of keys Do I need to use llList2Key on my TARGET_LIST and SEEN_LIST somehow for the llListFindList to understand the comparison of keys? I think I've been staring at this for too long now list TARGET_LIST = ["0f2e3a53-b856-413f-823b-71c10ca4aa58", "3a5add55-270d-4076-9e50-d4f37f2ad8af", "a6d06686-5198-4ff7-b42e-a7b4a75aaa5d", "d4b33149-686f-4bf4-b184-e8196a258b7a", "476c19b4-011e-478
  8. On another note, do I need to do something to define my list as a list of keys? The while loop with the list to list thing doesn't seem to be seeing anything. Keeps returning -1 even though I have keys in my target_list the same as those avi in the region I'm in..
  9. Yeah I've swapped it now to just be a list of UUIDs and I'll convert the key to username on output in llOwnerSay instead. Just about to try it inworld now
  10. So in light of all that, and using lists instead of strings.. does this make sense for memory checking, or does it have to be a string? if ((llGetListLength(TARGET_LIST) * 4.2) > llGetFreeMemory()) { //Delete the oldest entry in the list which is at the front of the list TARGET_LIST = llDeleteSubList(TARGET_LIST,0,0); }
  11. It looks similar to what I've got, it's just the IF part that's a bit different, though it looks to be saying the same thing from what I can tell: list ListItemDelete(list mylist,string element_old) { integer placeinlist = llListFindList(mylist, [element_old]); if (placeinlist != -1) return llDeleteSubList(mylist, placeinlist, placeinlist); return mylist; }
  12. Thanks I'll check it out! I don't expect there'd be many more than 20 (at most!) in a list at any one time with what I'm planning, but you never know. Even if I don't hash my list, this part looks like it could be useful to utilise in a modified way maybe: if ((llStringLength( hashedNames ) * 4.2) > llGetFreeMemory()) // In case memory gets tight { hashedNames = llGetSubString(hashedNames,3,-1); //Delete the oldest entry in hashedNames }
  13. Thanks, that's what I was hoping For this script, I'm mainly just thinking in terms of people storing a list of avatar keys/UUIDs now for the purpose of the snippets posted above in this thread. I have considered using the HTTP request functions to update and retrieve data stored on a server via PHP scripts instead to make sure things are more durable and/or persistent.
  14. Ah, right thanks for the heads up. I was using names as it was a customisable list, but I suppose I could do it another way which I was considering which was to store UUIDs instead, but it just meant the list couldn't just be stored/edited in a note file as easily/human-readable. But that's fine As for the list (however I create it now), if I store names in it as a variable -- will they be 'remembered' even after logging out if the script doesn't have any reset functions in it?
  15. OK I thought it was working.. but it still spams the chat and the SEEN_LIST doesn't remove anyone if they leave the sim. hmmm.. Here's the code again, I tidied up a few things which were causing compiling errors timer() { REGION_KEYS = llGetAgentList(AGENT_LIST_REGION, []); NUM_KEYS = llGetListLength(REGION_KEYS); if (NUM_KEYS == 0) { SEEN_LIST = []; return; } key id; //llOwnerSay(llDumpList2String(SEEN_LIST, ",")); // remove a previous seen target if no longer present on region integer i = llGetListLength(SEEN_LIST); string this_agent_
  16. Thanks for the replies. Haven't tried it yet but I thought I might just add (since I forgot to say in the OP): TARGET_LIST is a list of predefined avatar user names you want to look for. So it's trying to cross reference agents in the region with your custom list and notify you if they enter the sim and notify you only once they arrive unless they leave and come back later. Not sure if this changes how you'd respond to my code or your examples?
  17. OK so i'm probably overlooking something really simple in the logic, but I can't see it for myself right now. I just want the llOwnerSay("so and so is in the region") to only display once if that avi has been detected already and added to the "seen" list (unless they are removed and come back later). I'm sure it's something simple I'm overlooking, but any help would be nice! If there's a better way to do this, please suggest it also! timer(){ //Recheck the region REGION_KEYS = llGetAgentList(AGENT_LIST_REGION, []); NUM_KEYS = llGetListLength(REGION_KEYS); key this
  18. I did look at linked messages, but the examples weren't very clear on how to pass data between things. Are there any better examples out there?
  19. OK thanks. That kinda sucks though. Does LSL ever get an update ??
  20. So there's no built in function to just include another script from within the same object, without depending on a certain viewers preference setup? That seems a little clunky.
  21. Hi, this may be a newb question, but I'm more familiar with PHP. Is there an LSL equivalent of an "include()" function so that an object can have a larger script split up into more manageable parts and included in the main script? I'm finding it rather cumbersome to have such loooong scripts with different parts and functions all in the same place. It's getting messy trying to make a new HUD!
  22. Just tried it instead of the typing channel. Much better Now to figure out the other stuff...
  23. oh yes! Forgot to fix that before pasting it here. I was just trying to debug things earlier. Is llTextBox better than a listener channel?
