GTA III Vice City San Andreas ADD_BLIP_FOR_CHAR


Description

Adds a blip and a marker to the character

Syntax

0187: [var] = create_marker_above_actor [char handle]
Marker.CreateAboveActor( [var], [char handle] )

Parameter

[char handle]
The handle of the character
[var]
Variable to store the handle of the blip

This opcode adds a square blip in the radar denoting the location of the character and a marker above the character. In GTA III the arrow is blue, in Vice City it is pink, and in San Andreas it is red. The opcode is almost equivalent to 0162 but the properties of the blip are preset. The default properties of the blip, which can be changed using other opcodes, are:

  • Color: 1 (green) in GTA III and 4 (yellow) in Vice City
  • Scale: 3
  • Display: 3 (both blip and marker)

Both the blip and marker can be removed using opcode 0164.
