I. What does this module do?

This is an experimental module that gives access to some new functions to use with items. Note the "experimental" ! You can use the functions, but they will likely crash your server if you don't use them properly (as demonstrated in the demo module "function_demo.mod"). Consider this a tech demo.

This module is distributed unter the terms of the GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE included in licence.txt.

II. Using the module

A. Importing the erf

  1. Place the file "functions_include.erf" into the C:\Neverwinternights\NWN\erf directory.
  2. In the toolset, open up the module into which you wish to install the scripts.
  3. Under the File Menu, click Import. A window will pop up.
  4. Make sure the contents of the C:\Neverwinternights\NWN\erf directory are showing in the window
  5. Select "functions_include.erf" from the list
The following script should now be imported: nwnx_functions.

Set the DC for unlocking oObject.

int GetArmorAC_(object oObject)

void SetTag_(object oObject, string sValue)
