I am having an issue with a script timing and I don't know why.

The total armor field is supposed to calculate the master's armor points.
      <eval index="1" phase="Final" priority="15000" name="Calculate Armor Total"><![CDATA[
        field[armTotal].value = field[armArmor].value + field[armShield].value + field[armType].value + field[armDesc].value
        field[armTotal].value += field[armFocus].value + field[armHelmet].value + field[armMutate].value + field[armVehicle].value
        field[armTotal].value += field[armArtifact].value 

Here's the script giving me the issue:
HTML Code:
      <eval index="1" phase="Effects" priority="2000"><![CDATA[
  doneif (tagis[Helper.Disable] <> 0) 
  doneif (field[abilActive].value = 0)

  ~our rider gets +1 armor 
  if (field[abilActive].value <> 0) then
    hero.master.child[mscArmor].field[armVehicle].value += 1
(I have used the master.child and hero.master.child on the script and it still does the same thing. So I've ruled out the scripting)

When I have the ability active, the script executes but the armor on the master is not picking up the +1, it's reading it as 0. I learned from this from running debug scripts on both abilities. I'm not sure why but the ability script is sending the +1 through, I can see it in the fields of the master, but the master's armor script is not picking it up when it calculates the armor points. In my summary panel info window and field list, however, the armor point is showing up. The total armor script is not adding in.

Did I do something incorrect in my source code or is hero lab giving me a hard time?

Please do not PM me to inquire about datafiles I coded "for personal use" such as Exalted, World of Darkness, AD&D, or Warhammer 40K Roleplaying. I appreciate your interest, but I do not own the Intellectual Property rights to these game systems. Nor do I have permission from any of the Publishers to distribute the data files. As such, I cannot distribute the work I have done with community on these files. They are "for personal use" only. Thank you.

I am far too busy these days to answer emails. If you message me here there is no guarantee I will get back to you at all.
