I think I tried that while back but with a global variable condition. I just figured I wasn't using it correctly.
I tried it alone as you suggested, but with more wait actions, and even though I can hear the game music, I still get a black screen. After a few minutes I get a popup telling me that the webpage is slowing down my browser.
I'm fine with having 2 long events. If I do things over and over again, I like to find more efficient ways of doing them, but in the end it's really whatever works. I just put them into a group, collapse it and forget about them while I work on other things.
I appreciate the help.
