Hi I’m currently using a Recoil Pattern Script from this Devforum:

But I’m getting this Error whenever I fire the weapon:

And I can’t get any Devforum Information about this Error. This is the Script I modified:

local RecoilRestore = 0.5
local RecoilRecovery = 0.1
local RecoilSides = 10
local RecoilBumps = 10
local RecoilFire = 20
local RecoilObjective = nil
local RecoilPattern = {
{1, RecoilFire, -1, 0.77, -0.1},
{6, RecoilBumps/2, - RecoilBumps/2, 0.77, -1 * RecoilSides/25},
{11, RecoilBumps/2, - RecoilBumps/2, 0.77, RecoilSides/25},
}
local PreviousShot = tick()
local function RecoilLerp(A, B, C)
return A * (1 - C) + (B * C)
end
local function RecoilFire()
RecoilObjective = (tick() - PreviousShot > RecoilRestore and 1 or RecoilObjective + 1)
PreviousShot = tick()
if RecoilObjective == 1 then
spawn(function()
wait(RecoilRecovery)
local RecoveryAmount = -1/2 * RecoilFire
local RecoveryLeft = RecoveryAmount
local RecoveryCurrent = 0.5 * RecoveryAmount
while RecoveryLeft < 0.01 do
RecoveryCurrent = RecoveryCurrent/1.5
RecoveryLeft = RecoveryLeft - RecoveryCurrent
Camera.CFrame = Camera.CFrame * CFrame.Angles(math.rad(RecoveryCurrent), 0, 0)
RunService.RenderStepped:Wait()
end
end)
else
local Shuffler = math.random()
RecoilObjective = RecoilObjective + math.round(Shuffler)
end
if RecoilObjective >= 11 then
RecoilObjective = 2
end
for I, V in pairs(RecoilPattern) do
if RecoilObjective <= V[1] then
spawn(function()
local Number = 0
while math.abs(Number - V[2]) > 0.01 do
Number = RecoilLerp(Number, V[2], V[4])
local Capture = Number/10
Camera.CFrame = Camera.CFrame * CFrame.Angles(math.rad(Capture), math.rad(Capture * V[5]), 0)
RunService.RenderStepped:Wait()
end
while math.abs(Number - V[3]) > 0.01 do
Number = RecoilLerp(Number, V[3], V[4])
local Capture = Number/10
Camera.CFrame = Camera.CFrame * CFrame.Angles(math.rad(Capture), math.rad(Capture * V[5]), 0)
RunService.RenderStepped:Wait()
end
end)
break
end
end
end

V[2] points towards a function, for the first item in the RecoilPattern array:

local RecoilPattern = {
-- v This is a function
{1, RecoilFire, -1, 0.77, -0.1},
{6, RecoilBumps/2, - RecoilBumps/2, 0.77, -1 * RecoilSides/25},
{11, RecoilBumps/2, - RecoilBumps/2, 0.77, RecoilSides/25},
}

^ This too

Essentially, the variable:

local RecoilFire = 20

and the function

local function RecoilFire()

Have a name conflict; try changing the name of the either the function or the variable

Actually, what he has for the RecoilPattern array is perfectly fine, as he first assigns 20 to a variable called “RecoilFire”, adds it to the array, and then defines the function afterwards. If you run this code you can see it for yourself:

local Num = 20
local Table = {
{1, Num};
{2, Num}
}
function Num()
end
print(Num) -- Prints function 0x586731b7de2a775a
for _,v in pairs(Table) do
print(v[2]) -- Prints 20
print(v[2] * 2) -- Prints 40
end

Just wanted to point that out first. Anyways, @officer_wiki, this part that he mentioned is the problem:

You’re multiplying a number and a function. You should use his suggestion to change either the name of the function or the variable. Everything else seems to be fine.

You should give the solution to @HugeCoolboy2007, I basically just repeated what he said. I just wanted to point out the part where he mentioned v[2] being a function.
