Function Syntax

void waitq(int secs )

  • secs is the number of seconds you want to delay further action.

This function will initiate a countdown from secs seconds to 0, during which time nothing else will be acted on. It essentially pauses a script. This is the "quiet" version, which will not print a countdown on the gCLI during the delay.

Minimum wait is 1 second, even if secs is 0.

Code Samples

The example adventures 5 times in the castle top floor. Waits a few seconds between adventures to give time time to read messages. Wait silent is used for easier readability.

int[item] items;
int meat;
buffer fight;
for x from 1 to 5 {
   fight = visit_url(to_url($location[The Castle in the Clouds in the Sky (Top Floor)]));
   repeat {
      if (contains_text(fight, "choice.php")) { //Check to see if in a choice adventure
        cli_execute("choice-goal"); //Clear the choice adventure
        fight = visit_url(to_url($location[The Castle in the Clouds in the Sky (Top Floor)])); 
      }
   } until (!contains_text(fight, "choice.php"));
   fight = run_combat();
   if (have_effect($effect[beaten up]) == 0) {
      items = extract_items(fight);
      meat = extract_meat(fight);
      print("You acquired "+meat+" meat, and the following items:", "green");
      foreach it, number in items 
        print(""+number+", "+it, "blue");
      waitq(4);
   }
   else abort("You lost the fight :(");
}

CLI Equivalent

The CLI command "waitq" functions the same and can be used to pause basic .txt scripts.
