I'm sure many of you have seen my NPC tutorial for how to get an NPC in the game and give it basic dialogue. A while back, I put together a longer and more detailed version of an NPC guide that goes through a bit more on how to make your NPC XTREME and working correctly.
This guide can be found in the Wiki, but I figured it might be easier viewed here. I've tested everything in the guide, so I know it works, but I don't dare claim that everything you could ever want to know is in here. Awhile ago, I invited anyone who was interested to update the file in the Wiki to however they like, so that eventually we might have something easy for the very beginner to follow. Now, no one has done such a thing yet, for many reasons including time restrictions, not really caring to do so, etc. So this leads me to a simple conclusion, should anyone with coding knowledge find something wrong or something that needs to be added in the tutorial:
Don't complain about it. Fix it! It will be our little..."community project" har har (that was a good one )
Okay, seriously, here it is. It's got basic creation, banter, interjections, PIDs, flirts, basic (BASIC!!) scripting, music, sounds, portraits, and some other stuff that I can't remember without looking at it again.

UPDATE: New link, fixed some typos that would have caused errors upon installation.
