You're pretty new, so welcome .

Aiight, about your problem-

It's called trigger lock. It happens to everyone. What it is, essentially, is just that all triggers stop working because of something. What you should do is:

1. Save your file under a different name like "[scenarioname]triggerlock"- this will be a backup in case you delete the wrong trigger
2. Reload your original file.
3. Delete triggers one by one in order of latest to oldest, and playtest after every one. This should fix your problem.
4. Then, when you have found the bugged trigger, remember it or write it down and reload the backup. Delete only that trigger, so you fix the problem while suffering minimal damage to your triggers.

Haha i like your interests field in your profile. Just like mine. That may be a bad thing .

Oh and by the way, next time you have a question about scenario design, use the question thread- stickied at the top of this forum's thread list. People may flame at you or spam at you for making threads for simple questions like this, and this can be avoided by just using the question thread like they say. But don't let paperfriend get you down. He's just passionate about his question thread...

EDIT: Crappit you all beat me to it!

I was guna link to that, papaya, but i was too lazy to work for that:P.

^Err...yes you can. Your just to lazy to look for the problem.

I remember once i was working on a map, when all the triggers stopped working. I looked for hours and ours for the problem, systematically looking through each trigger for the problem. Finally, I found the problem. A trigger, right up the top of the list, the last trigger i was to look at. has a hash in a timer condition.

Anyway, the point is, i found the problem, and the triggers all worked fine again. I never released the map though, because I was so tired of it after looking for that damn trigger...

Had that to.
Had around 500 triggers and none of them worked, finally found the problem, was bored, and threw away the map.

P.S: Weezer, can I please sleep?


Yes, periods and smileys are the same for me

@ nchoate902

You'll work it out... at some point. That never fails if you want it strongly enough. It's called " kill the bug ". You've got everything you need to nail it: Faith...
Check everything by erasing triggers one by one or 10 by 10, or by groups if you are lucky enough to have some. And test. See, it's so easy...
to say.
You'll see the light again.

No you can't! It is your duty to tell everybody to use the question thread.

^He's right you know. He's flaming, but he's right.

I just posted something in the question thread. It probably won't get answered and I'll have to make a new thread. But, you see, at least I tried.

This problem is 10x worse in the modding thread because its less popular.

nchoate- you have to post it there first, though, in order to gain credibility. Wait ten posts after your question and if its stil unanswered make a new thread and state that you posted your question and it didnt get answered, then you'll be safeguarded from flaming.

I think an uber-extensive FAQ might be better- maybe link to Anastasoulis' compilation of all questions asked in the second question thread by Arctic in the topic post of the question thread? Or link to it in your hammerings about the qt?

The best thing to do is to sort your triggers that way it makes finding the problem easier. If the timer happens i would immidetly jump to my intro section.

Can a mod look at this? I think "im not ****ing gay duche bag" is grounds for a warning, if he has already gotten his flaming warning- a one week ban.
