[Help] I am unable to use 'Point_at' command


#1

Hi
I really want to use the ‘Point_at’ command with the B button but it will not work for me, i have tried all the animations under Lambda but it is not there.
My fiveM Server i use other character’s easily use the command by pressing B .
p.s I have read a thread here with a script to add to Lambda but i am unsure how to add it as
I am not very skilled with script writing.
[HELP] Finger point
Please help :slight_smile:

Lambda Menu already has “finger pointing” functionality by pressing b on the keyboard.
If you want to convert this into a separate server sided script, I’m pretty sure these are the things to look for:

Here you go:

local keyPressed = false

local function startPointing()
    local ped = GetPlayerPed(-1)
    RequestAnimDict("anim@mp_point")
    while not HasAnimDictLoaded("anim@mp_point") do
        Wait(0)
    end
    SetPedCurrentWeaponVisible(ped, 0, 1, 1, 1)
    SetPedConfigFlag(ped, 36, 1)
    Citizen.InvokeNative(0x2D537BA194896636, ped, "task_mp_pointing", 0.5, 0, "anim@mp_point", 24)
    RemoveAnimDict("anim@mp_point")
end

local function stopPointing()
    local ped = GetPlayerPed(-1)
    Citizen.InvokeNative(0xD01015C7316AE176, ped, "Stop")
    if not IsPedInjured(ped) then
        ClearPedSecondaryTask(ped)
    end
    if not IsPedInAnyVehicle(ped, 1) then
        SetPedCurrentWeaponVisible(ped, 1, 1, 1, 1)
    end
    SetPedConfigFlag(ped, 36, 0)
    ClearPedSecondaryTask(PlayerPedId())
end
