Nice to know that you are getting your hands dirty a little by playing with the demo.....
A few comments. The Powerup chart usually only runs to start other charts, so as soon as its done that, it stops.
When you are in debug mode, double click on the top of the chart tree and open the debug dialog box for the charts, you can see all of them at a glance in that dialog and you will see some running, some stopped and some stopping and starting.
The programmer has full control over them and its not uncommon to split your functions into charts and call them as needed.
One of the cool things about the demo is that its not real AND we give you all the graphics and the charts, so you can play (and thus learn) without fear of breaking anything.
The other cool thing is that the demo strategy was programmed by the same guy that did the graphics..... ie, hes an artist, not a programmer..... Opto flow charting is so visual that you can get things limping along with no formal training..... Im kind of glad that things are not perfect, because now you can step in and fix it to run as you expect.... Best way to learn is to do.
I'm going to be 'that guy' and not answer your questions DubleDeuce...... I think you should dig into the code and answer them yourself!
Sounds like the bottling line is a bit of a perpetual motion machine! Endless bottles of product.... That could be good or bad......
