In my ORPG, my quests work, but not quite like they are supposed to. When the first player uses the quest, it seems to work fine, but some players that try to get/or/return quests aren't allowed to? Could someone look over this example of one quest thats not working and tell me whats wrong?

-Get Quest-

  • Rat Killer
    • Events
      • Unit - A unit Is issued an order targeting an object
    • Conditions
      • (Target unit of issued order) Equal to The Prophet 0623 <gen>
      • Quest_Prophet[(Player number of (Triggering player))] Equal to 0
      • ((Triggering unit) is A Hero) Equal to True
    • Actions
      • Set Quest_Prophet[(Player number of (Triggering player))] = 1
      • Game - Display to (Player group((Owner of (Triggering unit)))) the text: |c000042FFThe Proph...
-Kill Rats-

  • Rat Killing

      • Game - Display to (Player group((Owner of (Killing unit)))) the text: ((String(Q1P[(Player number of (Owner of (Killing unit)))])) + Rats slain.)

Why do you use (Owner of (Killing Unit)) when your event is A unit comes within 300 . . .

In the return portion. Change it to Triggering Unit.

I imagine (and this is just a throwing a monkey wrench into a dark room) that because Killing Unit doesn't reference anything it returns null, and when you're returning an integer of a null handle pointer, the GUI probably just evaluates it to 0, which is odd that it works for even Player 1 then, since in GUI the player number of number 1 is 1, not 0. But who knows, see if that works.

First off there is no "Triggering Player" as the thing triggering the event is a unit. You will want to do (Player Number of (Owner of(Triggering Unit))). Remember to do this for Unit triggered events, and to do Triggering Player for Player Triggered events.

Also in the first trigger series you're doing Player 1, and in the second you're doing Player 2 (0 = P1, 1 = P2).

lol and Phoenix is right.

Now try those modifications out, tell me the outcome, and if problems persist repost the trigger.
