I've been using the editor to make some maps as of late and when making a single player map and having someone hold the portal gem and trying to script it right so that horny comes to collect teh gem after teh person's death, it won't work right. I used the manual from http://keeper.lubie.org/dk2_docs/dk2_editor_manual.htm#manual_walkth02samplmap and did the scripting exactly how it says by attaching the gem and making the LOTL the objective and then flaging when he's dead and then putting the flag on my keeper thing. When i do that though the game automatically ends with horny coming to get the gem immediately after the game starts. Anyone that can help with this problem is greatly appreciated.

If the game autoends, it means that your condition logic is wrong.

There are 2 situations why the preset condition may trigger prematurely.

1. You made a mistake in the trigger condition.
2. The game has a bug, and the trigger is not working properly.

Knowing the editor pretty well, I will make a prediction and say that you have a problem wit the condition.

Go to the trigger that has the action "make horny appear and take the gem". Make sure that you condition is correct. Something like "all enemy players dead" or "time = x" or whatever your map condition for "WIN"is.
If you are still struggling, zip (or rar) the map and attach it to the forum. I will take a look.

Here it is, and thank you. by the way, when i kill the objective it won't end game, horny won't come to collect the gem, it'lll just show the objective's dead body and the gem, no horny collecting. King Reginald is the objective btw.

Ok, so as far as I know, King is a special creature, and dies instantly. Due to that, it does not have the "is dying" parameter, or it is set to 0. You are checking the "is dying" on a creature that has 0 on that, due to that, the program may think that the condition was met, and exits.

Try altering the King in globals.

Do you know a way to make a lord/king not die instantly once slain? Game version 1.7. I would like to drag them to a prison hehe.

It only seems to work in the earlier versions of the game. In like 1.61 (maybe even 1.51) and onward, the Lord and King die instantly regardless. Must be hardcoded in the game or something.

Yeah thats the problem. The 'die instantly' is turned off but the lord still dies.
