SET_NAVGOAL question
I have a script that sets an Reborn NPC's nav goal during a cinematic when the NPC is first triggered. No problem...he walks right to it, then activates his sabre, very dramatic.

But then I want the Reborn to jump (or at least run over to) a certain nav goal when the player walks through a certain trigger. So the trigger is inactive at first, then activated when the Reborn spawns, and targets a scriptrunner that runs this script:

affect ( get( STRING, "SET_PARM1"), /*@AFFECT_TYPE*/ FLUSH )
task ( "goto" )
set ( "SET_NAVGOAL", get( STRING, "SET_PARM2") );

do ( "goto" );

Now...nothing happens!

Before you ask...

Yes, I'm sure the script gets run. The Reborn does indeed enter cinematic state and stop fighting when I walk through the trigger. He just doesn't go the the nav goal.

Yes, parm2 on the script runner is set to the targetname (not the script_targetname) of the nav goal.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance,

I don't know about this parm stuff, I find it just complicates things. It's best to use names and descriptions that mean something. Just give your NPC an NPC_targetname and use his name in the affect statement. Change the "do" to a "dowait"

If you want your NPC to jump to a navgoal you have to change his behavior state to BS_JUMP.

The reborn needs to have the parm2, not the script_runner. If you affect the reborn, then the parm2 is retrieved from his properties.

I'm using PARMs because I'm going to have a bunch of these and don't want to write a bunch of scripts that are all identical except for a few target names.

I think lassev has hit upon the answer--It's the NPCs PARM it gets because the Affect essentially creates a new script and pushes it off on the NPC. I'll test it as soon as I get home. Good catch, and thanks!

What I'll probably do is grab the value from the scriptrunner and put it in a global variable.
