Among all you script scribbling people can anyone look at this codesnippet and tell me why it works all funny? The script is suppose to make an NPC talk to the player. When first in range it'll display message_1 and when out of range or timeout it'll fade the message. When once more in range it should display message_2 and so on..

This works fine all the way thru but once the last message has been displayed and it starts over again on a certain message (in the codesnippet it makes message_2 play over and over) it doesn't display the message until you go out of range (in other words - when it's suppose to fade away) as oppose to you get into range.

Can anyone figure this out?

Your script is missing completely, so I can't check it, but here's a completely working npc talk script: http://forum.thegamecreators.com/?m=forum_view&t=65207&b=23

I have no idea where the codesnippet went. I'll try again in plain text then.

That does nothing more really but remove the function of having the hud go away when you back away from the NPC. I found that hudreset does a better job though. Also, i see now that the ":state=5:.." line is redundant. It should just go to state=20 right away.
