For whatever reason I can no longer seem to set basic triggers. Either that or I have forgotten how to. I am using ACE 2 (should be the latest version, updated a week or so ago). Here is I am trying to do:
I am setting up a hostage rescue scenario. I have two friendly (Independent) units surrounded by a few OPFOR units which are not to shoot until an enemy gets close, which is occurs when an independent unit sets within the radius of a trigger. Seems simple enough, though I can't seem to make it work.
This is what I have done:
1) Set a few OPFOR to "Never Fire" under waypoint 1.
2) Created a waypoint 2 for said units. Under waypoint 2 I change their combat mode to "Hold fire, engage at will".
3) Create a trigger which is activated by an Independent unit moving inside of the radius.
4) Synchronize OPFOR waypoint 2 to the trigger.
Doing the steps above I assumed the OPFOR units would not change their combat mode until an Independent unit stepped inside of the trigger radius, which would trigger them to enact waypoint 2. However this is not the case. The OPFOR units enact waypoint 2 no matter what, as if the trigger requiring an Independent unit to step inside of the trigger radius did not exist. I recall using these exact steps in the past to make units move to different positions and whatnot, so I am not sure what I am doing wrong? And no, there are no Independent units already inside of the trigger radius.
Here are some screen shots of the mission:

Any help would be appreciated.
