We should make a webpage for new NPC Scripters (OR for people who just SUCK, hehe) so they could learn what EACH one does, in THERE own words.
The NPC scripting thing that comes with your graal, is too confusing to newbies and such.
At least that's what I think :/

http://www.users.qwest.net/~ace2896/commands.html

Contains info on all commands and examples on how to use 'em, although if you're learning scripting from scratch it isn't advisable to read through this whole thing before starting, just search for the command from which you don't know what it does, works much better ^^

I had to look at graal levels from the levelpack, copy the scripts, and see what they did.
And I'm still not that fluent at scripting.
*yawn* :o

I looked at um the levels stuff then did things like:

if (playertouchsme) {
hide;
}


I still suck though :[

NPC scripting... is... uh... about as simple as it gets when it comes to programming. If newbies find it confusing, how can Stefan be held responsible for making it even simpler?

Shouldn't it be "if (playertouchesme)"

There's a whole list of flags in the commands.rtf file and you get used to typing it as playertouchsme.

No no Fai, it's been shortened because all cool scripting languages have shortened words.

If you happen to know C++, or have had experience in programming languages before, graalscript is a lot easier to learn how to use, because most languages have the same type of commands, but used in a different way.

I never had any former Programming experience but still eveyone always tells me how good I am at NPC Scripting ^^, although don't ask me why I don't think I'm that good...
