-SOLVED- Event Trigger help
« on: August 06, 2010, 01:54:54 PM »
I've searched around a bit for a solution but couldn't find one. It's probably there somewhere and I just search incorrectly.

2 help questions.

#1 I can't seem to get the "random player is chosen for a prize" event trigger to display a message on the screen. Here is what I have selected.

Prize tab
Recipient: Random player
Amount: Non-monetary (swag prize)
Display: Name (whatever the swag prize is)

Events tab
Trigger: random player is chosen for a prize
Hotkey: none
Conditions: none
Action: (1)Display message <prizename> Awarded to <name> Congratulations!

I have other events set up for when players bust out (funny sounds/message). Are these conflicting with the "random prize" event?

Question #2

Is the <randomname> token at all related to the random player chosen using the random player dialog box from the players tab? If so can the <randomname> token be used in the "display message" field under the controls tab to display the randomly chosen player?

TIMMER I appreciate your willingness to help and go to the lengths that you have to help. However My problem isn't bounty related.

I see what you're saying now. So in theory. The player with the bounty has the sunglasses to give to the player that takes him out of the game....That would work.

I apologize for being such a pain... I wish my formula/script writing was more up to par.

I can't get it to display still. In the prizes tab I set the prize as a bounty on random player. The copied your settings straight over...Never displayed. Could I be having a conflict with my event that triggers every time a player is busted out of the game?

None of my events are omitted. And checking box number 2 in the 2nd pic only tells the software that that action has been performed when in reality it has even fired at all.
