It bears mentioning is that I'm tweaking the tutorial so far for my own project, I'm using my own resources and tweaking it a little bit for my needs, so ultimately whatever is wrong, I missed something. I got this far;
But nothing happens when I go into the collider to start the battle. I can mostly initiate the dirty work of looking through my project myself, but in the meantime it would be super helpful for my troubleshooting to know (perhaps a non exhaustive list) some reasons why a battle won't start. For example, the tutorial mentions that if the enemies are set up as opposing factions as the player, the battle won't start. Examples like that. That way, I can go and check those reasons off the list.
This goof is on me, but I definitely appreciate it!
EDIT: Upon further playtesting, an AllySpot Game Object spawns, but no battle.
