Hiya,
So by any chance is hl_c13_a4 known to have an issue with getting the scientist at the start to use the retina scanner on dedicated servers?

If 20 people are standing in the way or keep using him, it might cause this problem. I may have to convert him into a monster_generic or something, just so that he can't be easily distracted.

Or keep periodically re-firing your scripted_sequence until the desired result is actually achieved. "No interruptions" and "Over-ride AI" are worthwhile also. Scripted sequences give up after a while, leaving the NPC idling uselessly.

Scripted sequences repeat themselves anyway until the NPC reaches a suitable target space. Doing so manually just causes huge processing loops, as LemonSoda discovered on her SC Planet map.

Ok Adam, I was just going by my experience with SC4.8 scripted sequence, I had a critical NPC what if blocked would eventually give up trying and just stand there idling, so I just assumed that was what was happening. If the sequence is refired every 30 secs or so, does that really have a big impact? Are you saying that the previous instance is still active, and refiring it causes a new instance, like looped/nested multimanagers?

Would it be possible you could give it a quick change and I can test it? I tried to ripent the map and look but eh I have no clue what I'm looking at! lol
