Trigger only once for match in list
 
Can anyone help?

I want a trigger to cast fireball (area spell) 3 times when I see the following... but when they are 2 or more of them in the room, the trigger cast multiple times of 3 times.

I only want it to cast 3 times, no matter how many matches it found.

A cat is here
A dog is here
A goat is here



anyone know how to do it?

simple, give it an ID, then have it turn itself off

Code:
#TRIGGER "tripleFirball" {* is here} {
    #LOOP 3 {fireball}
    #T- tripleFireball
}


Then you just need to turn it back on, either via walking:

#EVENT onRoomEnter {#T+ tripleFireball}

Or by some time delay:

#ALARM "keepFireballing" +30 {#T+ tripleFireball}

The last one can be added to the body of the trigger, it will only keep the trigger turned off for 30 seconds.
