Sub event not displaying text..?

Postby DazaKiwi » Sat Jan 18, 2020 9:16 pm

Why do sub events not always output display message?

I have noticed this in the past too. I currently have an sub event at the top (ie first one) set to display 5 turns after the start of the event to display some text. Then the next sub event set to display after 5 turns from last sub event- which runs a task. The first sub event does not display the text at all why is that?

The only thing I can think of is if the field "This will only apply when the Player is at the location:" is not fulfilled. If that's not it, perhaps you can reproduce the problem in a small taf-file, which we can have a look at.

Thanks Denk for replying. I just made a demo and that works fine. In my other project the default this will only apply is player at location everywhere. I have other tasks running in the background so it seems like it gets ignored, and often in the past i just run a task to force the text to be display. So i don't know what the issue is exactly. But in theory it should work.
