I was interested in your Utility scenario because I have created a tunnel effect before. The effect did not make it to the final edit. I did not include it, because the story and game play did not allow for it.
Many effects can be made with triggers, but the really good ones I've seen or done, take time, patience, and a measure of effort. Even to copy someone else's triggered effect and/or tricks requires this. I do applaud your enthusiasm, and your spontaneity. Still, I must say that this is not a good Utility, and It is far from being a good triggered effect too.
All is forgiven though, as maybe it was your desire to be first, that compelled you to release this here.
In your scenario instructions you ask for trigger help, you should have been more patient, and placed more effort into getting the answers that would facilitate the refinement of the effect you hoped to be first at.
It's not my intention to scold you, as it was plain to see that your intentions were good, and in a way helpful too. If one wanted to see a poorly done triggered effect, that could have been worthwhile through a better understanding of Triggers, then this is a good download. Although, I have to wonder about the eighthundred-plus people who downloaded before me, and not one left a comment as to what they found.
Anyway, I altered the triggers in your scenario to answer your time delay question, and created a better 'tunnel effect' Utility scenario. I sent it to you via e-mail.
Please, don't sweat my words...I wouldn't want to alter anyone's love of the game. You have made an honest attempt to contribute to the community, and for that you can be proud.

Thanks for your comment,but even if there was a way to make it better I wouldn't know. I am still not so good with triggers but I manage it with maps. :)

I have sent you an altered version or your scx with a 'better tunnel' effect, and the triggers to answer your time delay questions. I'll send it again, and then you can update your utility scenario. You can e-mail me with your trigger effects questions if you'd like, and I'm looking forward to seeing your maps.

O.K, but instead of killing the man at the start of the tunnel, just remove him. Then you won't get him crying out in pain as he enters the tunnel.
