Description

Initializes a segment of code containing VNgen options. Once this script has been run, as many options as desired can be executed inside it. While it may behave like an event, this script is itself an action and will pause all further actions in the current event until a selection has been made.

As of version 1.0.7, options have both a block (or group) ID and individual option IDs. The ID of previously-selected options can be recalled at any time by supplying the option block ID in the vngen_get_option function.

For the sake of performance, vngen_option is intended to be used within an if statement. This guarantees that individual options within will only be performed while the option block is active.

See Language Functions for details on multi-language support.

Example

if vngen_event() {
if vngen_option("op_choice", view_wview[0]*0.5, view_hview[0]*0.5, 0.5, 0.5, snd_hover, snd_select) {
//Options
}
}
