In cl_init I call LocalPlayer():GetRace() and it returns a nil value. Why is that? Did I set up my meta tables correctly for Gmod13?
The code there is fine, post your cl_init.lua
Possibly because your not setting race.
local meta = _R.Player
print("set race called for " … self:Nick())
print("get race called for " … self:Nick())
return self:GetNWString(“Race”) or “Human”
I have the race being set in a file called deathknight.lua. I can confirm that SetNWString is working: http://pastebin.com/aUiMU20g
But calling back using GetRace just does not seem to work
Here is where I SetRace:
Here is where I GetRace:
DONT mind the __toString() it doesnt work ;3
just some scrap i left thar.
Are you calling GetRace on SERVER or CLIENT. And where is GetRace located(SERVER CLIENT OR SHARED?)?
That GetRace you saw that was commented out was from cl_init.lua
It doesn’t work because your not using it right from what I see here in front of me.
Okay it’s removed. Don’t worry about the tostring crap that was there.
I know that bit I had just left it there
And where is GetRace function located on(in) a server (file) or on(in) client (file)
GetRace was created in init.lua
So what you need to do is the following. Removed it and paste it in a file that’s loaded by client and server. Or just create a file thats loaded by client and server. Your trying to use a funciton that doesn’t exist on the client.
So I can take http://pastebin.com/hf9e0DD4
And put it in, say shared.lua?
Yes, but I’d leave SetRace function on server.
Alright it’s all working great. Thanks for your help Aide!
