If memory serves me right, ShowEnemyPlayerPosition gives the monster a snapshot of where you are at the time it's called, rather than a permanent view of your location. If you call it right at the sta...

Hey folks, Just a quick note - part excuse, part apology - for my absence (most notably from things like Teamnesia who I promised a map). My PC's power supply apparently did not survive the move last...

You need to specify the "effects" part of your SetLampLit state. The syntax isCode:void SetLampLit(string& asName, bool abLit, bool abEffects); so you want your code to look like this: Code:AddEnt...

I'm just wondering what everyone is finding in the first map of Harvest: Prologue. Please indicate whichever of the above you've found, so I know what works and what doesn't (or what is too obscure).
