BZFS API Documentation This page contains part of the BZFS API documentation for use by Plug-ins on the BZFS server.
BZFS API Function. This page documents a BZFS_API Function, that is provided by the BZFS game server for plug-ins to call.

Prototype[edit]

BZF_API void_t bz_setShotMetaData (int fromPlayer, int shotID, const char* name, uint32_t value);

Parameters[edit]

name type value desription
fromPlayer int the player who owns the shot, BZ_SERVER for world weapons
shotID int the local ID of the shot for the specified player
name const char* the name of the MetaData value to set
name uint32 the value to associate with the shot

Description[edit]

This API function will set the specified data and associated it with the specified shot. If the shot does not exist the function will do nothing. Setting data for a name on a shot will replace any previous data that was associated with the name.

Notes[edit]

Shot MetaData is useful for plug-ins that need to fake extra player shots with server based world weapons. Using MetaData a plug-in can store player or score information with the shot to be used later when the shot hits a target or expires. Shot MetaData is server side only and is unique to each shot fired. Multiple shots with the same ID over time will not contain the same data.
