  • call DialogAddActor('(INTEGER)_InstanceID,(GUIDSTRING)_Actor)

Adds character or item _Actor to the ongoing dialog with ID _InstanceID.

When starting a dialog, you can specify NULL as one or more speakers. These speakers can afterwards be filled in using this API or DialogAddActorAt.

If the dialog instance has a null speaker slot available right after its last non-null speaker slot, this API will fill that speaker slot with the _Actor and _Actor will participate in the dialog as if it had been added from the start. If no such slot is available, _Actor will be added as an observer, which means _Actor will follow the dialog along with its participants and will see/hear everything that gets said, but cannot make any choices in the dialog.

  • Take care that _Actor is close enough to the characters participating in the dialog, otherwise you may get visual culling issues in multiplayer.
  • (DOS2 Classic) Used to be DialogAddCharacter
