  Entity:SetNW2VarProxy( string key, function callback )


Sets a function to be called when the NW2Var changes. Internally uses GM:EntityNetworkedVarChanged to call the function.
Alias of Entity:SetNetworked2VarProxy

You should not use the NW2 System on entities that are based on a Lua Entity, or else this will be called multiple times and the NW2Var could get mixed up with other ones.

Only one NW2VarProxy can be set per-var
Running this function will only set it for the realm it is called on.


1 string key
The key of the NW2Var to add callback for.
2 function callback
The function to be called when the NW2Var changes. It has 4 arguments:
  • Entity ent - The entity
  • string name - Name of the NW2Var that has changed

Prints all changes to a NW2Var called "Key" of Player 1.
