I would expect that as soon as one or more of the East soldiers die, regardless of their position on the map, the trigger should fire and the hint text pop up on screen.
Nope, cause the trigger is set to size 0 and so does not count the units in thislist since thislist refers to the units inside the trigger area.
The trigger fires immediately regardless of the number specified, can be <=9, <= 2, <=90 or <9 doesn’t matter!
of course, cause there are no east units inside the trigger area (trigger size = 0) so the value is always smaller than what you require it to be.
If the < sign is changed to > the trigger doesn’t fire at all, even when there are all 10 opfor present.
Cause there are never more than 0 units inside the trigger area.
I can get a similar effect to work using count thislist <=9 so long as I set the size to cover the while map (it doesn’t seem to work if using side 0/0 for some reason??).
Well, that is your solution. Make sure the trigger covers the entire erea in which you want to count "thislist".
