RE: Spawning an enemy

It's pretty straightforward if it is a Collide Callback with a ScriptArea. I've named the ScriptArea SpawnCorridorMonster for this example.

PHP Code: (Select All)
void OnStart()

void MonsterSpawn(string &in asParentstring &in asChildint alState)

You can also call ShowEnemyPlayerPosition after you set it active to make the enemy immediately chase after the player.

A list of all the basic functions Amnesia can recognize are here: https://wiki.frictionalgames.com/hpl2/am..._functions

You can also check Frictional Games' levels to see how they did it. There are countless examples where they use CollideCallbacks to spawn enemies, especially in the Sewer level.

RE: Spawning an enemy

Remember to actually place an enemy in your level.
You're not really "spawning" it. The enemy is supposed to be inactive in your level, and in your script you use "SetEntityActive" like Romulator did, and the enemy will be set active.

Trying is the first step to success.
