Summary

Function: llRequestExperiencePermissions( key agent, string name );

Asks the agent for permission to participate in the script's Experience.

• key agent Key of the agent to request permissions from
• string name Deprecated, no longer used

This request is similar to llRequestPermissions with all the following permissions: PERMISSION_TAKE_CONTROLS, PERMISSION_TRIGGER_ANIMATION, PERMISSION_ATTACH, PERMISSION_TRACK_CAMERA, PERMISSION_CONTROL_CAMERA and PERMISSION_TELEPORT. However, unlike llRequestPermissions, the decision to allow or block the request is persistent and applies to all scripts using the experience grid-wide.

Subsequent calls to llRequestExperiencePermissions from scripts in the experience will receive the same response automatically with no user interaction.

Either experience_permissions or experience_permissions_denied will be generated in response to this call. If no response is given by the agent, the request will time out after at least 5 minutes. Multiple requests by the same script can be made during this time out though the script can only have permission for one agent at a time.

Agents in god mode will always see the permission dialog even if the experience has been previously approved.

Outstanding permission requests will be lost if the script is de-rezzed, moved to another region, or reset.

For this function to work, the script must be compiled into an Experience.

Caveats

  • If you recompile a script that was previously associated with an Experience but do so with a client that lacks the ability to compile scripts into an experience the script will loose the associated Experience.

Examples

This is a shell for a HUD Dispenser. It detects an AV by the collision event, then rezzes an object that will request experience permissions and attach to the avatar

default
{
    state_entry()
    {
        llVolumeDetect(TRUE);
    }
 
    collision_start(integer NumberOfCollisions)
    {
        integer i = 0;
        for(; i < NumberOfCollisions; i++)
        {
            integer channel = llRound(llFrand(-1000));
            key give_to = llDetectedKey(i);
            llSay(0, "Rezzing HUD for " + (string)give_to + " using channel " + (string)channel);
            llRezObject(llGetInventoryName(INVENTORY_OBJECT, 0), llGetPos(), ZERO_VECTOR, ZERO_ROTATION, channel);
            llRegionSay(channel, "ATTACH|" + (string)give_to);
        }
    }
}


This script is for the object that is rezzed. It requests experience permissions and then attaches itself to the avatar. It must check for various failures such as denied permissions and failure to attach, and deletes itself when there is an error.

// This script runs on an object that is rezzed in-world which gets
// an Experience permissions and then attaches to an AV.

Notes

Compiling

For a script to be associated with an Experience...

  • It must be compiled with a client that is Experience aware,
  • The "Use Experience" checkbox must be checked,
  • And one of the users Experience keys selected.
KBcaution.png Important: Not all TPVs have this functionality.
