Event timing question

Postby mugen24 » Mon May 28, 2012 6:32 am

Another question: Is there any way to set a trigger for an event to when you first enter a room after a task has been completed? I have an idea on how to do this another way but I'm wondering if there's an easier way to do this.

Creating an event that starts the first time you enter room R after Task T is completed:

Note: Is it "enter the room" or "be in the room"? (If the player is in the room when the task completes, does the event start immediately?) This method does the second, but you can tweak it a bit to get the first.

Do the following:
Create Event 1 that starts after task T. It lasts 1 turn, restarts immediately, and starts task Q on completion.

Task Q can only be executed in Room R. Otherwise, it has no text, actions, or conditions. It is not repeatable.

Event 2 starts after Task Q is complete.

Thanks, I'll see if that works.
