Hidden Functions in G-Blender?


(Doc Holiday) #1

Does anybody know something about hidden Functions in GameLogic? There is something i don’t understand. e.g.: Obj.getName() This Function works, but is nowhere documented. Maybe there is more such unknown Stuff?

Cu, Doc

Yeah, there is more undocumented features in python as well, such as the vertex manipulation functions. I dont remember enough about them to post them here, but just do some dir() commands on objects. getMesh() gives you a mesh, getVert() gives you a vert etc. It’s pretty complicated stuff, but powerful.

Yes, really powerfull! I used them a lot. But i have the Feeling dir() don’t show me all. Wasn’t there an Explorer ore something?

the dir() function returns only public functions.
is there a newer gamelogic api than the api from mark dec 2000.
An other thing i figured out:
i you want to share objects blenderwide you can do this:

GameLogic.dict[“mything”] = mything

every py script can acces these objects/vars, and they´re persitent for the main loop.

GameLogic.mything

Why not collect all undocumented py things ?
