Multiplay Variable
 
I'm current multiplaying.

And I'm using Variables, however I can't find a way to read variable off another session.

Session 1 - @Party1
Session 2 - @Party2

How do I read Session 2 @Party2 variable when I am in session 1?

#IF (@PARTY2=0) {xxx}

you prepend the window name to the variable, like this:

#if (@Session 2.party2 = 0) {xxx}

Only works on plain a=b variables and maybe stringlists. Datarecord variables are unable to take advantage of this due to zmud not supporting multiple levels of hierarchy (@window.variable.key) nor supporting the variable keyname syntax (@variable.@key).

Of course, I could be wrong about the data variables, but MAN, that'd be one funky piece of code...

@{@{Session1}.Food}

You can use braces like that to specify the potion that should be looked at by the @.
