Some of my my npc files work and some dont, which I realise explains very little - are there things I shouldnt do? Im using NPC Tool which means unless Im completely stupid (?) I cant do anything wrong. I made one file called clone_sniper which worked fine and then exactly the same file but called it clone_sniper2 but this one didnt work. For some reason, files that have worked before suddenly dont and I dont have a clue about this... I might just reinstall jka if something might be messed up

My recommendation would be to stop using a tool to make NPCs. All it does it keeps you from learning how they work. It's quite obvious to me why your NPC file doesn't work (you can't simply rename the file and expect it to spawn a different NPC) but unless you have some concept of how the innards of the file work you won't be able to fix it. So if you want the easy way out, load up your tool and start over for your second NPC.
I still recommend you take my advice, though, and stop using it and figure out how they really work.
oh i didnt expect it to spawn a different npc just by putting '2' on the end. ill try and learn the the proper way though
that and you'd have to go threw the actual lines to make sure everything matches up to what your using the file for, if they don;t match well you'll either get "is not an npc" etc error, or spawn something completely different
I didn't make it!
I myself do NPC's the NotePad way, but the tool is easier for some people I kno.
