Zero, I am also at work. I'll be getting home late tonight (7ish pm EST) but I will try my best to set up a mission for you on tribble before the end of your work day.

OK. So now I have some visual aids and also a mission you can check out.

On Tribble right now, there's a published example called "Conversation" by Galactrix.

Project ID: ST-TAJDW68AG currently listed as review content, for Fed characters any level.

Here's a screenshot of the advanced editor for a popup - this setup actually worked and let me progress to the next objective no matter what option you pick.

As you can see, the two buttons both do the same thing and end the conversation.

Here is a screenshot of the editor when the mission then gets stuck and can't progress.

This is the same as above, except that one of the branches now has an extra prompt where you get some more info. For some reason after choosing either of these options, the mission will not move on to the next objective.

Here is the Story editor where you can see that there's a final objective in the mission and that the branching dialogues are for the blue popup window in the flow chart.

Here is a screenshot of the editor, but this time it comes from a Talk to Contact objective - the setup is identical to above, but it results in success and works as it is supposed to.

The difference between the two screenshots as you will notice is that next to the finish flags at the end of the branches, there is a dropdown menu that allows you to choose whether or not the branch is success or fail.

Is this dropdown meant to be in the editor window for the popup boxes branching dialog too? Is that why it is broken?

Project Name: Advanced Dialogue Error
Project ID: ST-TUY3F4DV8

I put explanations of the error in the pop-up dialogue. It should be fairly easy to follow.

Have you tried to move the "arrow" that points to the flag? Not widely known but you can drag and move the arrow pointing currently to the flag and select one of the panels above so that you have a loop back to a previous dialog which should allow you to be a lot more flexible.

I would send over a screenshot but Tribble is down for maintenance at the moment....

I know about that but it is irrelevant for the screenshot I showed. I want the conversation to END, at the finish of the two branches, not loop back.

The problem is that it doesn't trigger the next objective when the conversation reaches the finish flag.
