Alter NPC copy? And get copy #?

I was wondering if there is any way to do either of these things:
1) Use Alter NPC to only change the properties of a single copy of that NPC?
2) Return the copy number of a specified NPC?

EDIT: I figured out the answer to my first question.

1) As you realised, you can't, you need to create a separate NPC definition if you want to change something that's changeable only by editing the definition
2) You're in luck, there's a new script command in nightly builds for this purpose: "npc copy number"

That's great to hear! Is there by chance a dictionary that has the commands for the latest nightly? Right now I'm using the plotscripting dictionary here (http://hamsterrepublic.com/ohrrpgce/docs/plotdictionary.html) but if theres a dictionary for the nightly I'd like to know where I can find it.

In fact it's only in the last few months that there are now two copies uploaded to hamsterrepublic.com: the nightly and the latest stable release:

This article was out of date, I've just fixed it. The nightly version of the dictionary is also linked to from the Downloads page.

Of course, if you download a build of the engine it should always include a copy of the correct version of the dictionary.
