    Hi, I've been trying to get the walking distance/penalty between a bunch of places (outside of loaded distance, in other floors, etc) but the following method does not work:

    getWalking().getWebPathFinder().getMovementCost(sx, sy, ex, ey, z);

    It gives:

    • [ERROR]17:21:14: Exception has occurred while running! Please report error to developer if problem persists: java.lang.NullPointerException at org.dreambot.api.methods.walking.pathfinding.impl.PathFinder.getMovementCost(PathFinder.java:195) at NWalk.execute(NWalk.java:46) at org.dreambot.api.script.impl.TaskScript.onLoop(TaskScript.java:84) at org.dreambot.api.script.AbstractScript.run(AbstractScript.java:264) at java.lang.Thread.run(Unknown Source)

    I also find it curious that there are 5 arguments as opposed to 6 (z could be sz and ez) and that it takes ints rather than Tiles. Is there a way to do this without presumably getting the movement paths and iterating through them?

    Note: (sz, sy, z) and (ex, ey, z) were valid tiles at accessible points on the map when tested.

    EDIT: Yeah iterating through the movement path works well enough for my purposes.

    It's the "walking" distance I'm interested in, not as the crow flies. Iterating through the WebNode path solves this problem well enough. However, it would still be nice to have a way to figure out whether the next step is something like Stairs or just another click on the map.
