this would be kind of useful for cutscenes. What this would be, is that you could force a thing frame using a script, Defining the sprite frame. Thing_attack would make the thing fire even though it's dormant or whatever. would this be possible?

Frame thing sounds useful, but might be complicated. As for making a monster fire, I think that it's simply not possible while its dormant. If you want to do what I think you want to, then why not spawn the monster's projectile in front of it?

Why not just activate it and give it a hate target to attack? Then deactivate at the end or something.

Why not implement a useful feature instead of having to hack around the limitations? With the new custom state support this can be really useful for cutscenes and other stuff like that.
