So I want to be able to make the rival a contact in the phone app, but there’s a problem. I followed the wiki’s instructions for defining a special contact (like professor Oak) but in the contact list it just displays the rival’s name as \v instead of their actual in game-name. I guess that the \v thing only applies to the message box? Do any of you guys have an idea on how to make the rival’s name display in the contact list? I can’t call the rival just fine and do what I want with that, it just doesnt display their name in the contact list, or in the message that says “you registered \v in the pokegear”. Thanks in advance for your help :)
Instead of "\v", use pbGet(28). \v only works if it can get preprocesed, which it doesn't in a regular string. pbGet however returns the value of the contents of the variable, so it'll show up perfectly. I tested it!
Just to clarify, you didn't mean using it like this: "pbPhoneRegisterNPC(3,"pbGet(28)",4)" right? I was pretty sure that wouldn't work, and nope, it didn't. Sorry, my knowledge of this stuff is pretty beginner, haha.
