Your answer worked as well, so thanks for your input! Again, the wording in the tutorial just flew right over my head somehow and i'm sorry if my question was silly but i'm a total beginner with this stuff.
No worries and unless you plan on using Jambo's patch to extend variables, you can have over 65,000 events off that 1 script tile, assuming these events only ever occur once. So if you plan carefully you wont used all the variable :D
My advice is keep the post by DavidJJCobb, and carefully decide which vars and flags you want to use.
