I have two autorun events (one triggers an animation of a door opening, the other triggers a NPC to come greet the player if a certain condition is met). But they are not running in the order I desire - the character comes greet the player before the door opens.

The question is, how can I make it so the door event always triggers first?

Autoruns run in the event order by ID. If you need them to run in a precise order you should use one event and have it control both items.

combine them into one autorun that controls both the door and the NPC to let them move in the order you want them to move.

You should not have 2 autorun events active at the same time. Parallel Process events will run at the same time, but autorun events will only run one at a time, and I believe the order is according to the event id.

If the two are linked, just have one controlling autorun event that makes the NPC walk to the correct point, then open the door, then (I assume) walk to the player.

Otherwise if they're actually independent and have different triggers, make the one that's going to be finished first a parallel process event, and the one that's going to take longest an autorun.
Or, depending on what triggers them both (say, stepping onto a certain tile with a Player Touch trigger), make THAT event control the others and avoid autorun and parallel process altogether.

When you thought you'd be finished with the grid, and spend ~8-9 hours on an arrow. How is this more difficult to than player movement?

Still some bugs hiding in there, but it's nearly complete.

I'm having it strictly follow the path a user draws, because there will be booby trap and other similar mechanics where you want to avoid specific cells.
I feel like banging my head against a wall every time I want to find that post that shows all the plugin header codes. Then I think "next time I find it, I'm going to bookmark it". Then I think "wait a minute ... maybe I bookmarked it last time because it took me so long to find it". Check bookmarks, and there it is :)
... a few of my main characters standing around doing nothing lol. I mostly wanted to see them together on screen.
