Hit and Run melee unit

Post by ThreadNecro »

Warning, Doing this in Decorate, yes I know I'm a chimp.

Trying to make a ghoul that will leap at the player, then when being targeted by the player, via LoS or damage state, it will turn and run from the player.
What version of the code I have worked out are semi doable, but have pathing issues, the monster can leap into solid walls, etc.
Besides inspiration from the Hexen dragon and placing map points for the ghouls to use as a leaping focus, or learning the better code language, are there any decent solutions?
