Summary0000464: natives.getPlayerChar(id) only works on self.

It'd be very useful if we were able to get the handle of another player in the same session. However, it only ever returns a handle if the id you supply the argument with is your own player ID. (natives.getPlayerId())

You cannot grab the handle of a networked player. This is an issue.

(Possibly related to my previous issues regarding player ID's allocating backwards.)

TagsNo tags attached.

Which native are you needing another player's handle for?

I highly recommend using GTAC's scripting functions for elements. Natives are only meant to be a stop-gap for things we haven't added to the main scripting API.

getClients() returns an array of Client objects, each of which have a player property, which points to their ped. It's also usable in natives where a ped object is accepted as an argument.
Same with vehicles and such.
