movement help

Hello, I'm new to Gs and may be taking on a project too difficult. It's a tower defense game and I'm trying to move enemies along a path. I have a table with specific x and y coordinates laid out. I'd like the actor (enemy) to move to xy row 1, then row 2, etc. I've tried using code like: after 1 sec, move to tablecellvalue (x)+1. Or: when at position x interpolate to position y, when at y interpolate to z, etc. I can't get any to work for the actor to start at the first row and finish at the last row. Any ideas?

    You could set up invisible actors at the corners of your path so when your enemies collide with them, they can rotate accordingly
  • that would be one way, however, i would like to save ram wherever i can. can i not just have the actor go to the first row, then have a +1 attribute to go to remaining rows in order?
