Thanks for both the answers. I'm using Xamarin for ios/android so reading the xml is pretty easy and I would assume I only ever need d. I plan on using the data to create my path and load these in at start up. Only about 10-20 will exist.
I wanted a path so I can use a time formula to see where in the path the monster should be and place him there based on the total time the path should take when updating sprites.
I also chose SVG, because I can use adobe illustrator to see the path visually until I have time to create my own, or search for a premade app.
If you can recommend a product that will produce a path of bezier curves visually and I can get points and control points from that to build a path in my code, that would be great also.
