Hi, I'm looking for a way to delay an internal script while the player can still be controlled.

For example, a message says "Teleporting..." and Viridian can move for 3 seconds before being sent to another room. Thanks in advance!

hascontrol()
I think that works.
If it doesn't, use a million flags

IIRC hascontrol() only works to undo nocontrol(), so that wouldn't work.

As Dav said, hascontrol() won't work. Also, there are only 100 flags (also, a few of them are glitched) and I'll be planning to do this multiple times in my ERROR 418: What teapot secret project? I have no idea what you're talking about...

Looking forward to your teapot secret project.

I know there is 100 flags.
101 if you count flag 101, that stays active even if you reset/restart.

Flags outside of normal range are kept for the whole play session, even if the level is exited. However, setting them may also have unexpected effects.

Oh, I thought he was talking about flags actually being saved in a save file and keeping that after restarting VVVVVV.

That'd be cool, you'd be able to do Undertale-style weirdness.
