##### Problems with the InPoly function
«  »Last edited
Hi everyone, I am writing a function for detect bank locations and ATMs. In this moment, I have got this:

main.nut
Code: [Select]
`// BANK LOCATIONSbanks <- [ "-921.229, -355.514, -928.713, -326.602, -901.457, -326.602, -901.457, -355.519", // elBancoCorruptoGrande "357.028, 1127.34, 356.961, 1132.15, 359.17, 1132.33, 359.462, 1127.27", // atmMall "6.47041, -949.763, 1.30694, -949.764, 1.51372, -947.378, 6.33632, -947.53", // atmWashingtonMallRightSide "1.44156, -928.274, 6.39117, -928.274, 6.37502, -930.697, 1.46436, -930.314" // atmWashingtonMallLeftSide]`

another_one.nut
Code: [Select]
`function isPlayerIntoBank(player) {    local found = false;    for(local i = 0; i < banks.len() && !found; i++) {        if(InPoly(player.Pos.x, player.Pos.y, banks[i]))            found = true;    }    return found;}`

In the wiki say that the arguments are two floats (player.Pos) and an string / array / floats, but fails.

This function doesn't allow me to make geometric shapes like a rectangle / square. Also, the previous function should work.

Alrighty then, are you sure InPoly works with strings?

That function expects floats, not strings.
I convert minecraft worlds to VCMP, if you want your worlds to be converted, shoot me a PM! (Please note the paintings, flower pots, armour stands and custom skulls won't be converted within the model. Also big objects won't be converted)

In the Wiki it puts the opposite.(I didn't try with floats.)

Are you talking about client-side or server-side?
According to source code, server-side supports string.

About server-side. Although It says It works with string but It tried It and It fails.
In my code they are string but it returns the previous garbage exception output. Is it possible that is a bug?

Possible. Try using an array of floats.
