Used to get access to a specific script-related functions.

Visibility: Global.

List of functions

RestrictFunctionByTime
Arguments Returns Example
  • string: name
  • float: seconds

void

script.RestrictFunctionByTime("some_function", 10);
Description

It can be useful, when you want to subscribe to every-frame event, like OnEnterFrame, but you don't want your function to be called every frame. In this case one of possible solutions would be to use function pair : RestrictFunctionByTime/RestrictFunctionFPS. In such functions, in case you need an interval since it was last called, you'd call script.GetSecondsMultiplier instead of standard game.GetSecondsMultipler.


RestrictFunctionFPS
Arguments Returns Example
  • string: name
  • int: fps

void

script.RestrictFunctionFPS("some_function", 10);
Description

It can be useful, when you want to subscribe to every-frame event, like OnEnterFrame, but you don't want your function to be called every frame. In this case one of possible solutions would be to use function pair : RestrictFunctionByTime/RestrictFunctionFPS.

GetSecondsMultiplier
Arguments Returns Example

void

Double

var time = script.GetSecondsMultiplier();
Description

Returns time since this function was called last time. Works properly only if function was restricted with RestrictFunctionByTime/RestrictFunctionFPS
