Hi there,

I was wondering -- if I, for example, have two avatars (say a man and a woman) in my world -- and I have this queue of actions for one avatar to perform (the man):

turn_left = male.turn(270)
male.act(turn_left)
word = male.speak('sound.wav', .5)
male.act(word)
turn_right = male.turn(180)
male.act(turn_right)

How would I insert a 'conditional' action that makes the other avatar (the woman) fall down (i.e. action 7) right as the man starts speaking?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi,

You can setup callbacks for when actions are beginning and ending. So in this case setup a callback for when an actions starts then perform whatever action you need. Here's some sample code:def beginaction(avatar,action,type):
if avatar == male and action == word:
print 'The male has started speaking'

viz.callback(viz.AVATAR_BEGIN_EVENT,beginaction)
