I am trying to figure out exactly how TYPE 2 Events work. The Notes in the Editor say:

"Type 2 = reoccurring checks until end of game

OR

once the #DATE field is satisfied"

Does reoccurring mean the check is made every player turn for both sides, or less frequently?

Does the OR condition above mean that the checks start when the DATE field have been satisfied, or that they stop when the DATE field has been satisfied? The logic of the first condition - "until end of game" would imply that they stop when the DATE is reached, assuming it is before the end of the game, but reading the scripts for TYPE 2 events the former interpretation makes more sense.

Grateful for enlightenment on this.

Re-occuring means it checks every turn, although DECISION events are only checked on their side's turn.

The second bit "Once the #DATE field is satisfied:" relates to Type= 3 events:

; #TYPE= Values range [0, 3];
; With all other fields satisfied will this be:
; 0 = Single check regardless if #TRIGGER is satisfied
; 1 = Multiple check until #TRIGGER is satisfied
; 2 = Reoccuring check until end of game
; OR
; Once the #DATE field is satisfied:
; 3 = Event fires once if all other fields are satisfied, else it will not fire. Either way, event will be removed never to be looked at again
