I have been struggling with this for what seems like weeks (I keep going back to it to see if I can get it to work)

I have no idea WHY this will not work (I don't get any error messages), it just will not fire when the conditions are met.


<triggers>
  <trigger
   enabled="y"
   expand_variables="y"
   group="kaioken"
   keep_evaluating="y"
   match="Gravity: Normal"
   send_to="12"
   sequence="100"
  >
  <send>if GetVariable("kaiokenlevel") == 0 and GetVariable("pki") &gt;= 90 then
Send 'kaioken'
Send 'score'
else
if @pki &lt;= 20 then 
Send 'kaioken'
Send 'score'
end
end
end</send>
  </trigger>
</triggers>


Did I structure this wrong? I initially used the @variable then switched but neither version worked. Again, I get no error messages, the first half will not fire when the conditions are met.

If the trigger doesn't fire then the conditions are not met. What line do you expect it to fire on?

Basically, I want it to fire off this:


if GetVariable("kaiokenlevel") == 0 and GetVariable("pki") &gt;= 90 then
Send 'kaioken'
Send 'score'


Variables for kaiokenlevel which starts at 0 (So that should always be true) and when the the pki variable is at or above 90 it should fire kaioken, then score. I have actually looked in my variables window when both are true and it won't fire, however, I have tested with each variable individually and it works for the pki when that's above 90, but not kaiokenlevel when that's at 0 so I'm unsure what the issue with that variable is. The trigger I have to set up my capture of kaiokenlevel is working properly too as it captures the correct number in the variables window.

I mean what line from the game do you expect your trigger to match?

but not kaiokenlevel when that's at 0

Are you sure it's 0 and not "0"? Please show the code where you set your variables.

I indented it for you. There seems to be an "end" too many.

In any case you are inconsistent with your use of variables. Why use @pki and GetVariable("pki") in the same script?

An important point is that GetVariable("pki") returns a string and not a number, and in Lua strings are not converted into numbers, thus "100" would be considered less than "90", because 1 is less than 9, and in strings they are compared from left to right.

One thing to try there is to convert it to a number, eg.


if tonumber (GetVariable("kaiokenlevel")) == 0 and tonumber (GetVariable("pki")) >= 90 then

I managed to figure it out with some trial and errors, I changed the code to the following:


if (@kaiokenlevel == 0 and @pki >= 90) then
Send 'kaioken'
Send 'score'
elseif (@kaiokenlevel > 0 and @pki <= 20) then
Send 'kaioken'
Send 'score'
SetVariable ("kaiokenlevel", "0")
end


That seems to have made it work, this thread can be closed now. Thanks for the input. I don't indent my code because it's easier for me to read (probably backwards to most of you) than it is when I do. Also, I used the @ and GetVariable in the same snippet as I was trying to do it off a previous trigger (not related to this) that I have that uses both (I didn't write it), was given to me via pastebin.

Either way, problem solved.

Yes, that will also work, because when you use variables like that the contents are literally inserted into the code (without quotes) so numbers are still numbers.
