cs_find_ent_by_class

Syntax

native cs_find_ent_by_class(start_index, const classname[]);

Usage

start_index
Entity index to start searching from. -1 to start from
the first entity
classname
Classname to search for

Description

Finds an entity in the world using Counter-Strike's custom FindEntityByString
wrapper.

Note

Unlike other mods CS keeps track of entities using a custom hashtable.
This function utilizes the hasthable and allows for considerably faster
classname lookup compared to the default FindEntityByString (used by
find_ent_by_class() for example).

Note

This exclusively considers entities in the hashtable, created by the
game itself or using cs_create_entity().

Return

Entity index > 0 if found, 0 otherwise
