Change Article in game

Postby RenatoDias » Mon Feb 24, 2020 1:39 am

Is there a way to change the object article in the middle of the game by a task? I didn't find it. I'm trying to work around it using variables, but nothing yet.
If not, please add that possibility.

Not as far as I am aware.

Why not just change the object itself?
The Axe of Kolt, The Spectre of Castle Coris, The Fortress of Fear, Die Feuerfaust, The Lost Children, Run, Bronwynn, Run, The Call of the Shaman, The Lost Labyrinth of Lazaitch, Magnetic Moon, Starship Quest, Revenge of the Space Pirates

Yes, use this action in your task:
(the task must be of type "Set Properties")

Set [Referenced Object] [Object Article] to 'newarticle'

Note that you must use ( ' ) and not ( " ). Replace the word newarticle with your new article.

Hope that helps :)

Just as a matter of interest, why do you want to do this?
