You are probably spawning them wrong. You should just place them somewhere outside the player's view then teleport them with a
<MNP

(description from the TSC guide at the adress http://www.cavestory.org/guides/tsc.txt) :
<MNPx:y:z:w Move NPc Move npc X to coords Y:Z facing direction W

The reason is probably (I'm not sure, read that somewhere in a guide some time ago) that spawned NPCs get the smallest available entity ID.
Alright I finally got them to appear in game thanks to the MNP command. The only problem now is when they appear, they don't die:

I so sorry for taking up everybody's time with these issues, I've tried to make sure they're critters, I checked the NPC table and properties but this issue persists......
I've thought it was because they were supposed to have 1000 + they're actual desired hp like for the guadis but after looking at the image that's not the case......

At that point when they die they will run an event, and you have to pretend kill them (play a sound effect and CNP them to smoke). Pixel never intended for something like this so you have to work around the weird "run event on death" function.

im trying to make two teleporters in 1 map teleport to each other but it keeps glitching out
sometimes the blue teleporting thing won't show, sometimes you, sometimes everything, sometimes no sound and I just can't get it to work

someone please give me step by step instructions I've tried a lot of things
I have 3 sprites with events for each (teleporter base, something below it, and something to the top left of it)
each has a different event

I'm using the <MOV command, not <TRA

You'd want to do as the player goes through the teleport animation; have a <WAIXXXX command, and then have a <FONXXXX:YYYYY (to have it focus on NPC X for Y amount of ticks), 16 is fast, 32 is medium speed, 64 is slow, 1 is instant, and 0 crashes the game, you would want the <FON command to focus on the teleporter. Then make sure "reanimate" the player back in with the <ANP command and then make sure you're doing <FOM character at the end so the camera's not stuck on the teleporter NPC, the same tick rules apply for <FOM, in that case, it's best to use 0001 tick because of how instant it is.

since it's been a while since i put something else here I hope I don't have to combine them again... (and this is unrelated to the previous thing)

I was looking through the characters and the npc things and I noticed that in the NpcCent theres a character (i think used in the new jenkasnightmare) but I never remember seeing it
Why is it there??

also in the "NpcRegu" theres a picture of the doctor and one of them has his hand up and not really sure what he's doing..

Not sure if you can see that but it kind of looks like that
(colors are inverted not sure why)

OOOHH that makes so much more sense!
it looked kind of like a hidden easter egg of a rude gesture from the doctor...



EDIT:
another question, is there any place I can copy what each tile does in a tile set? like it's tile #41 or tile #01 and I can copy and paste that instead of clicking EVERY SINGLE ONE...?

I don't think there is such a feature for Booster's Lab. That does sound like it could be a suggestion for Noxid, though!

I don't exactly know. The best way to check is probably to open both exes (original and jenka) with 7z (as archive), and then copy paste the ORGs into the same folder and see which have different sizes.

Oh well, another question then: do enemy's bullets (i.e. from a flying gaudi) destroy breakable blocks?

No, only player bullets can. However a very few very specific NPCs can create player bullets in some situation - if an NPC can be killed by another NPC that is what's happening (e.g. the large falling spikes in Egg Corridor 2)

Hey just curious for anyone who's played jenkas nightmare (I think most versions have it) at various points balrog is your friend and is able to wander around (at one point you see him flowing in a drain, another point he's walking to the right bashing through walls in a sand-ish area)

I'm a little confused how they did this and I really want to incorporate balrog into my mod (hes a very fun and funny character)


please help if its complicated please tell me all, if its simple then just tell me the <ANP numbers and which sprite to <ANP
