Why wont this work?

if (playerenters) {
drawunderplayer;
dontblock;
timereverywhere;
timeout = .5;
}
if (timeout){
this.dir = random( 1, 5 );
if (this.dir=1 && !onwall(x+1,y)){y-=1;}
if (this.dir=2 && !onwall(x+.5,y+2)){y+=1;}
if (this.dir=3 && !onwall(x,y)){y-=1;}
if (this.dir=4 && !onwall(x,y)){y-=1;}
timeout = .5;
}

When you do random things, doesn't it also do decimals and not just whole numbers?

yep.

Also, the parts where you check stuff like this.dir=3 should be this.dir==3. Quick guide to where to use == as opposed to =:

if = is found inside:
if ()
while ()
or the second part of for ()
then use ==

otherwise, use =

But I remember trying to make a baddie, and it would change directions according to what ranges of a number a certain variable was in. I had used the same method before, but it didn't work in my baddie for some reason. I guess I'll have to look over it again.
