Pres alt+6 to start recording, end recording with alt+7 then check in your levels directory (In your graal directory of course ;)) and look for a text file with the name recordpos.txt, just drag that into your Graal window (While the editor is open) and you'll have an NPC which does exactly what you recorded with it.

With this, I can concentrate on other NPCs than the one I tried to make that walked around town manually :(

For npcs walking through towns I have
some optimized script,
with the 'waytracker' npc you record the
movements (only when you change direction)
then you can type in the values into
an array in the script. The npc reads those
values and goes exactly the same way
(but doesn't stop in the middle and don't
use sword or so,
but that could be added too).

I don't know what the hey index and values are, and why are there x and y in hitplayer!?

The player would be make the hurting movement to the northwest ;)

Stefan, where can one find this NPC? Is it coded to where I could add npcserver commands (warpto) ?

Also, I would not suggest using Alt+6 to make npcs move. It uses sleep and sleep = no no. But anyway go ahead I don't care.
