View Full Version : How do i get a spanwed NPC to execute a script?

Right, except the script is already written and exists in-game (it's already in the base folder). Isn't there a console command to select an NPC and have him execute a script?
Yes, there is. An NPC must have a NPC_targetname. So, if you have an NPC. open entity window (N key) in Radiant and add:
(you can give any name)
In the game you can use "runscript" command.
runscript <targetname> <script>
runscript npc1 common/crouchshoot
If you wanna script run globally (not on specific NPC), just ignore targetname.
Basically, this runscript is just a debug command for developers. In actual game you would need to run scripts by either target_scriptrunners or by assigning "spawnscript" key to the entity.
Hope this helps.
Yes it does, immensely.
Thank you very much. :-)
Actually, could you elaborate on that last paragraph? I'm not sure how to use target_scriptrunners or spawnscript ingame...
You must create a trigger (say trigger_multiple) and target it at target_scriptrunner. Then select target_scriptrunner and in entity window (N key) enter:
value: path to the script (ex.common/crouchshoot).
So when the player or NPC passes thru the trigger, the script will be executed.
As to how to set "spawnscript" check this thread..
