Any alternatives to touchended? [Solved] [closed]

Asked by 2 months ago
Edited by OldPalHappy 16 days ago

I've recently been making a custom tool pick up script, however, I've noticed that touch ended can be very buggy in which it can activate even when the player is still inside the part. The player is supposed to pick up the object when pressing "e" however if the player were to walk across the part, if the script does not have touchended, the player would still be able to pick up the object after walking pass it with the press of "e". Thus, I needed a touchended to create a variable to stop this from happening. Though it does solve the previous problem, it created a new one in which touchended would fire even when the player is still touching the object, continuously activating my touch ended variable and breaking my script. Can anyone help with this?

equipped = false
--Remote event that fires when touched
Prompt.onClientEvent:connect(function(player)
HasTouched = true
end

game:GetService("UserInputService").InputBegan:connect(function(inputObject, gameProcessedEvent)
-- check if E is pressed
        if inputObject.KeyCode == Enum.KeyCode.E then
            if not Equipped and HasTouched then
                equipped = true
                HasTouched = false
            elseif Equipped  then
                equipped = false
                HasTouched = true
end
end
end)

--Buggy Part that causes HasTouched to be false, thus not entering into both of the ifs above
--Remote event that fires when touchended

Prompt2.onClientEvent:connect(function()
    HasTouched = false
    print("Touched Ended")  
end)

Whoops, Part:GetTouchingParts() could be used, though it wouldnt be the most efficient thing you could do. NexanianStudios 76 — 2mo

Region3s are also very helpful, they allow for a more precise detection mattscy 1141 — 2mo
