So here's the issue: I'm making a game and I'm using Ai Set Entity Attack Distance. Everything is working fine with it until The player dies and the game restarts. Then, Ai Set Entity Attack Distance isn't working and the enemies try to walk on top of the player. I cant seem to figure out what the problem is. I'm using Ai Reset. Help would be appreciated.

I don't use AI much but have you tried the debug mode when running to see what is changed when you reset.

Ok, I got an example code here to show a basic idea of what is happening. So the deal is: the first time before any restart, the enemies have a further following distance. When it's restarted, that following distance is shoter by about half as much.

can't see that error I get a distance of 30 when I start game and the same when it re-started.

I did think it might need an ai upated after ai reset give it try.

@HowDo- I tried the ai update and it didn't work. In order to fully understand my problem, you have to move the player object away from the enemies until they start to follow. Their following distance is what decreases, not where they start out.

The debug path shows what the problem is but it doesn't help solve it. I don't know if it's just me, but the first time through, the following distance is about 200. After that, it's about 100.

I found the little - now just got to find away of changing it.
if you use
AI Set Console Output On 2
and
AI Set Console Output off in reset you will that the

raduis 5.000000 : min distance 200.0000

but after reset its

raduis 5.00000 : min distance 100.00000

see pibture before left after right.

ok try this, rename your main.htm, oldmain.htm this so you can get it back if goes wrong.

Then paste this one in its place. then make a copy of it and rename newmain.htm, this will let you put it back each time you update DBpro.

edit
you will then have three file named like so:
main.htm
oldmain.htm
newmain.htm
