Animevents are useful for adding mid-animation functionality.

The first step to creating an animevent for your NPC is to create a name for it and add it to "Private animevents" section. Here's an example name for an animevent: COMBINE_AE_ALTFIRE.

Once the activity is added to the enum, you must use the DECLARE_ANIMEVENT macro in the AI_BEGIN_CUSTOM_NPC section.

Here's an example of the DECLARE_ANIMEVENT code:



All event code is handled in void CNPC_New::HandleAnimEvent( animevent_t *pEvent ). If pEvent doesn't contain anything that needs to be caught and dealt with, BaseClass::HandleAnimEvent should be called.
