A level script is a script that activates when the map is loaded. Simply put...

Thanks a lot!
This tut works for me!

But I have problems with
the "03 On entering map/not on menu close" thing . . .
Er.. What's the problem?

After the script, you set it to 1 (or indeed any other value if you choose to), and this means it no longer equals zero, so no longer activates.
Actually, it overwrites a completely separate number with FFFF, one for which there was no input box (as it was thought to be unused). This is not such a mistake in the tutorial, but for future reference it should always be set to zero, not whatever you set the "Value" box to.
1. I didn't know that. I'll add it to the first post
2. Ahh, Okay. I assumed that it overwrote the value box because it worked whenever I changed it back to 0000. But I'll change that too.

But, I have a question for you. Have you found a way to allow more than one level script (type: 02) activate on a map?
