From Multi Theft Auto: Wiki

This function can be used to force the ped to do the choking (coughing) animation until he respawns or toggled off using this function. The animation can not be cancelled by a player it's applied to, and he will not loose health.


bool setPedChoking ( ped thePed, bool choking )

OOP Syntax Help! I don't understand this!

Method: ped:setChoking(...)
Variable: .choking
Counterpart: isPedChoking

Required Arguments

  • thePed: The ped whose choking status to toggle
  • choking: true to make the ped choke, false to no longer force his choking animation

This script will make all players choke on resource start

-- Choke all the players when the resource starts
function ResourceStart ()
    setPedChoking ( root, true )
addEventHandler ( "onResourceStart", getResourceRootElement (), ResourceStart, true )

-- Unchoke all the players when the resource stops
function ResourceStop ()
    setPedChoking ( root, false )
addEventHandler ( "onResourceStop", getResourceRootElement (), ResourceStop, true )

-- Choke players spawning
function PlayerSpawn ()
    setPedChoking ( source, true )
addEventHandler ( "onPlayerSpawn", root, PlayerSpawn )
