I'm trying to get the hang of SmartAI but it's proving to be difficult. Starting with someone easy, I picked a random npc (Jaina, entry id 35320) and doing
event is on recieve_emote (id 17, which is kiss)
the action is DIE (37)
And target self.
UPDATE `creature_template` SET `AIName` = 'SmartAI' WHERE `entry` = 35320;
DELETE FROM `smart_scripts` WHERE (source_type = 0 AND entryorguid = 35320); INSERT INTO `smart_scripts` (`entryorguid`, `source_type`, `id`, `link`, `event_type`, `event_phase_mask`, `event_chance`, `event_flags`, `event_param1`, `event_param2`, `event_param3`, `event_param4`, `action_type`, `action_param1`, `action_param2`, `action_param3`, `action_param4`, `action_param5`, `action_param6`, `target_type`, `target_param1`, `target_param2`, `target_param3`, `target_x`, `target_y`, `target_z`, `target_o`, `comment`) VALUES (35320, 0, 0, 0, 22, 0, 100, 0, 17, 0, 0, 0, 37, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 'Lady Jaina Proudmoore - Received Emote 17 - Kill Self');
But the problem is that it doesn't work. I've resspawned her, restarted the server but she still doesn't die.
Any help would be most appreciated.
I have just written my first SAI script, copying from another and it was a partial success.
I do not know how to create text for an NPC to say, and how/where to link it. I think it is connected with a data script, but no details.
I do not know how to stop an NPC from attacking.
Are there any resources available to assist?
I have looked at the SAI Editor for Keira2, it is very good, but linking up a working SAI with an Idiots Guide to how to show text, stop attacking, run away to a certain point, etc would be very helpful.
An extremely complex SAI like insertwww.wowhead.com/quest=29678/shu-the-spirit-of-water seems daunting to write.
If the information is available via sniffs, then that would be fantastic, I have installed the sniff tool but live is so volatile atm that it is out of date, and even were it to be rewritten most likely live will be patched at least once per week for the near future, so it might not be worth the effort.
TLDR: I can't work out how to write SAI scripts, please help
