function Punisher_Init()
	ind = Tut_GetLocalPlayerIndex()
	client = World_GetPlayerAt(ind)
	build = Player_GetEntities(client)
	PID = Player_GetID(client)
	hq = EGroup_GetSpawnedEntityAt(string.format("__Player%dEntities", PID),1)
	spawn = Entity_GetPosition(hq)
	child = Squad_Create("guard_squad_civilian_child_a", client, spawn, 0)
	one = SGroup_Create("1")
	two = SGroup_Create("2")
	three = SGroup_Create("3")
	four = SGroup_Create("4")
	SGroup_Add(one, child)
	W40k_AssignHotkeySGroup( "1", 0 )
	W40k_AssignHotkeySGroup( "2", 9 )
	W40k_AssignHotkeySGroup( "3", 8 )
	W40k_AssignHotkeySGroup( "4", 7 )
	print("successfully initialized")

function Rule_Monitor1()
	t_builder1 = Util_MakeBlueprintTable(
	if SGroup_ContainsBlueprints("sg_Player1selection", t_builder1, false) ==  true then
		print("pressed 0")

I switched to this, SGroup_IsSelected didn't seem to work, but this configuration isn't working either, I think its becuase the squad I spawn in doesn't actually show up but I'm trying to find out why

I am not 100% sure, but I think the SGroup must not be empty...

(Arbitrary conjecture) I think that the SGroup_IsSelected boolean function  is True, only if at least one squad of the SGroup is selected...

reading the documentation it says all squads have to be selected, I'll try to put something in the SGroup. Its done with Sgroup_Add right?

In Topic: triggering SCAR function with button press

I just found this thread https://forums.revor...ript-questions/ and I think it solved my issue


After reviewing that forum post I realized that the only way to trigger a scar function with a key press is by creating a bunch of squads and assigning hotkeys to them, I might just do that and make the squads. But I would like to know if there is a better way?

also, can you use lua extensions in SCAR? I want to use the socket library so my scar script can talk to a python script running locally

EDIT: I tried using the io library and I got an "attempt to index a nil value" from that does SCAR have its own io?
