I'm afraid I'm only partly understanding your question, too. (Not that I'm knowledgeable enough to actually help you out with your problem.)
If I may suggest, though... Try listing exactly what you want to happen in a step-by-step list. For example:
1. This is the current status
2. Something begins to happen
3. Upon a specific event...
4. ...this result should occur (except I don't know how to get that event to work)
I hope that help you to convey your question better so others can help you. :) Keep gamin'! You'll get it worked out.
