Arms the car with the bomb
0242: set_car [car handle] bomb_status_to [int]
[car handle]
The handle of the vehicle
Car bomb stage

This opcode arms the car with the car bomb. It has no effect on boats or trains. Arming car bomb stage 4 (active timed bomb) will not work as expected; entering the car will produce a secondary soft ticking noise and will not blow up the car.

For Vice City

This opcode does not exist in Vice City but vehicles can still be armed with a car bomb. The following example, using Sanny Builder with CLEO for Vice City in an external script (not the main one) and tested on US v1.0, should work similarly to this opcode. Place this at the end of the file:

// 0@ - input param (car handle)
// 1@ - input param (bomb stage)
05E7: 0@ = car 0@ struct
0@ += 0x1FE  // car bomb offset
05E0: 2@ = read_memory 0@ size 1 virtual_protect 0  // store previous value
05F9: 1@ = 1@ AND 7  // keep only the first three bits from input param
05F9: 2@ = 2@ AND 0xF8  // exclude the first three bits in stored value
05FA: 2@ = 2@ OR 1@  // replace the first three bits of stored value with input param
05DF: write_memory 0@ size 1 value 2@ virtual_protect 0  // set to new value
05F6: ret 0

Use this line as a substitute for opcode 0242. This can be placed anywhere within the external script:

05F5: call_scm_func @opcode_0242 inputs 2 car_handle [car_handle] bomb_type [int]
