Is there a way to make a guy vanish when he's done speaking? As in, when the screen strings are done, the guy disappears as if you've done whatever would normally make the guy disappear (e.g. buying an item, picking up the item, giving them bait, etc.)

You can make the guy a "pay for door repair" type, with a cost of 0. Then he'll only appear once, but you'll still need to leave the room and come back for him to be gone.

...doesn't quite work for my purposes.
Can it be scripted?

What are you trying to achieve?

 

Are you looking to have the guy come back every time to speak or to just talk once then go away and stay away?

You could do it with the Trading Sequence script.

What I want is for the guy to talk to you and then vanish as if you took an item/gave them bait etc.

I don't think this is possible. Maybe use combo cycling?

Can't you trigger the screen secret through a script after the string ends? IIRC Bait Goriyas count as solving the screen secret if you feed them so try triggering the secret after the string ends and see if the Guy leaves

I could maybe do combo cyclicng or timed warps.
I feel like bait rooms and other guys were actually counted as defeating all enemies, as opposed to screen secrets being activated. Either way, I don't know if it would help.

In any case, this would be a useful thing to have in ZC. I can probably work around it, though

I guess you could use the String Once script in the DB and not use the room type "Guy"

Instead, leave it as a regular room with the FFC set and the "Guy" combo on a layer with a perm trigger that makes him vanish once link moves again.

 

That should remove the need to "give" the guy something.

 

Or you could use the option for "talking NPCs" script in the DB too. That way, the player will have to actually "trigger" the conversation.
