Ok, so for each trigger, there are two options at the top: "Enabled" and "Intially On." Ok, so that's great, but what's the difference between disabling the trigger and turning it off?

Enabled/Disabled is whether the trigger will actually do anything in game or not. It's useful for debugging, because if you suspect a trigger you can disable it without actually deleting your work.
Initially on means that the state of the trigger is on, as opposed to off. An initially off trigger won't react to any events until another triggers turns it on.

It's all in the help file, if you would actually read it.

Alright...

I did actually read the help file... but it really didnt explain what I wanted to know. It gave just common sense info, but never really said what the differences were or the practical uses of any functions were... that kinda ticked me off.

Anyway... Alright, thanks. I can see the small difference now. :)

The help file is there to define functions, if you're looking for examples of ways to use the editor you should have a look at any one of the numerous tutorials spread about the web.

Esentially, if you think a trigger may not be working, you disable it and test. You can then leave it disabled until you find a fix.
Initially on, when off, acts as if the trigger is disabled but it can be enabled mid-game. Possibly used for things like RPGs, where you only want a certain trigger (say a boss battle trigger) to occur after all "the super secret items" are collected. This way it won't respond unless it's time for it too.

Lets Get This Straight...

Okay, so if a trigger is Disabled, it CANNOT be turned on and off midgame? Or can you somehow enable it and then turn on/off?

If you uncheck the "Enabled" option, it can NOT be activated during a game, period.
If you uncheck the "Initially On" option, it CAN be toggled in game with an action called "Trigger - Turn On"

IT IS ALL IN THE HELP WEBSITE.

    thanks for the tip, that sounds cool. Never heard about the VCS before but seems like it should be a good match

    Are we still on the topic of failing? I failed lots!
  • jonas jonas:
    If you ever want to talk about it we're here. The way I see it, you're still around. That required a few very difficult successes if you ask me:)
  • Varine Varine:
    I posted a thing here a while ago about my failures if it makes you feel better to hear about other people failing. Drugs and whatnot, I had a lot more fun than was healthy. I'm still a failure, but very few of us actually get to be the self made billionaire. Luck is the only thing that will take you as far as already having money a lot of the time, and the easiest way to get catch that is with a very wide net and the willingness to let other things loose.
  • Varine Varine:
    Have fun, do your best, something about Edison's light bulb not working until he stole it.
  • jonas jonas:
    Eh. Don't define success as being a billionaire or even millionaire. Success is about overcoming your personal challenges. And if you can get to a place in life where you can love yourself, that is winning it big time
  • jonas jonas:
    Being a billionaire probably sucks, you can't go out in public like a random person anymore and you always need a bunch of big guys following you around discreetly
  • jonas jonas:
    And you'll never know if anyone you know really likes you or is just seeing you as a big money sack
  • jonas jonas:
    Most of the best fun I've ever head was with a group of friends eating pizza or drinking a good 10$ bottle of wine, when I had maybe 100$ on my account. Or the time when I was so broke, my friends visited me with bags of ingredients and I cooked for us, because I didn't have money to buy ingredients anymore
