Hey guys, creating a mission map for my mod and can't get passed this. No idea what I'm doing wrong but individual triggers work fine, but when I enable a trigger through a trigger the game just ends as the player victorious.

All I'm trying to do is pan the camera to a waypoint, enable a trigger to pan the camera back to the player's units.

Has the trigger (to be enabled) checked "Disabled" box? Does it have correct House, Event or Repeat settings?

Yes its ticked disabled, I've tried both houses in the map, event is just time elapsed and no repeat.

Hm, try setting to repeat and set last action to disable trigger itself. If none of this work, I would recommend to modify game.exe to create map snapshot when "V" key is pressed (using exe modifier here on PPM). It will create map snapshot which can be loaded into FS for troubleshooting triggers, variables, etc. Once loaded, You should be able to see which triggers are currently enabled and which variables are set.

Upload the map so we can check the triggers?
Hard to tell with so few infos what you've actually set.

Well, I thought it is map made in FS based on posted forum location. From triggers I was able to load into FS: for returning camera to back player, I would use again Action 48 "center camera at waypoint". Also I am not sure how exactly works in RA "zone entry by" event, It could trigger instantly at start of game, maybe replacing it with "Entered by" event attached to celltag.

Same thing happens with Entered by, the camera returning to player doesn't trigger regardless of jump or move to waypoint as the game still ends as soon as the radar is revealed. It only happens when the return camera trigger is enabled, or any other trigger for that matter.

just an update, I cloned the map and started triggers from scratch, now enabling triggers works perfectly. Guess I'll never find out why the previous map was giving me errors, but at least I have a working map now, cheers.
