    It seems to be that c_ was renamed to b_, but since I haven't fixed the other problem I can't test it yet. For the new super constructor, just at MinecraftServer.getServer().getLogger() as the first argument. Again, that is what it seems, but I have not been able to test it yet. If you figure out the problem in Node.java, let me know.

    Tank you :)

    I got it ;) the 'e' is replaced by 'b'.
    https://github.com/Bukkit/CraftBukkit/commit/d3d98a166f05f8fadfcd11adc0318c548da8a25b
    In old line 322 and new line 313

    But I can't find the new name for the 'az' field in EntityLiving or EntityPlayer.
    You need this in NPCHuman in the lookAtPoint method.
    EDIT: 'az' is replaced by 'aA'. I just tried all float fields ^^
    By the way: You have to replace the line:

    Code:
    Field f = NetworkManager.class.getDeclaredField("m");
    in NPCNetworkManager.java
    with
    Code:
    Field f = NetworkManager.class.getDeclaredField("n");

    yep I just got those two. Thanks!

    You need to take the source code and add it to your src folder/build path. I use the Eclipse IDE (your profile pic?). If you use Eclipse, copy the com folder (wich containt the topcat folder) into the src folder of your project (located in WORKSPACE_DIR/PROJECT_NAME/src).

    Then, in your onEnable method, you need to initialize an NPCManager (com.topcat.npclib.NPCManager). This is the manager you will use to create/edit/remove NPCs. Try playing around with that class and see what you can do.

    Remember, the NPCs must be saved into a file on server shudown/reload and loaded on enable

    jeremytrains Thanks a lot for the replay I have loaded them in like you said and it seemed to work. How do I now create the npc?
    Thanks.

    There is a method in the NPCManager class called spawnHumanNPC. You must give it the NPC's name and the location to spawn the NPC at. You may also (optionally) give it an id for the NPC (I just use numbers). If you do not pass it an id, it will make one for you. It will return an NPC object. Cast the object to the type HumanNPC. Then that is your npc object. I personally (in NPCWarehouse) store the NPCs in a big array. If you want to access the NPC later, there are other methods in the NPCManager class to get the NPC by its ID, the entity, or name.

    jeremytrains Great. Thanks. I looked in the class an found a ton of errors, so I am trying to clean it up. I am just updating the imports, because I am using 1.5 R2 dev build. Is that ok to use?

    The_Coder I am not sure about the dev build but you can use the beta build 1.5.1 R2

    Wouldn't it be better to create a github page for this lib and let some authors update it regularly ? I would like to do that but I am not sure if topcat is ok with that ^^

    caliog ya I changed everything that had v1_4_1 to v1_5_R2 and that cleared most of the errors then I got an error in the NPCNetworkManager here:
    Code:
    public NPCNetworkManager() throws IOException {
            super( new NullSocket(), "NPC Manager", new Connection() {
                @Override
                public boolean a() {
                    return true;
                }
            }, null);
    Eclipse says: "The constructor NetworkManager(NullSocket, String, new Connection(){}, null) is
    undefined"

    Insert this new line ;)
    Code:
    super(MinecraftServer.getServer().getLogger(), new NullSocket(),
                    "NPC Manager", new Connection() {
                        @Override
                        public boolean a() {
                            return true;
                        }
                    }, null);
    I just created a github repo for the npclib where you can download latest versions of the lib.
    If somebody wants to help update and extend the lib he can become a author at github, just write me a message ;)

    I wonder when a 1.5.2 version will come out..
    EDIT: Just updated it myself, just replace v1_5_R2 with v1_5_R3, or whatever version you're compiling/using it with.

    This is an old tool. I suggest Citizens, they have a great API.

    Isn't citizens API for 1.2.5?

    Ultimate_n00b

    Citizens 1 is. That's why I would suggest looking into Citizens 2.

    Citizens 1 (and 2 also) are based on this lib, but the developers brought much more features to it, so better use the Citizens API ;)
    A year ago, I used this api for one of my (inactive) plugins - it was very difficult and I had to fix it every update for myself, because support for this lib is outdatet..

    Would this work for every version of bukkit. (After changing packets and stuff ofcourse). And if it doesnt. Could you make one that works. I really love the functions that this adds. And sorry if this is too much but it'd be awesome if you could add a followEntity(Entity entity, int dist) where entity is who its gonna follow and the dist is the distance it is going to hold from the entity/player. Got some other ideas too. PM me if you got time to listen
