I'm making my map in Minecraft and making it for several players, I want to make sure that all the players on the map could execute a command in a certain place, that is, all the players who are currently in the world could start the game when they enter a certain zone.

execute if entity @a[x=~,y=~,z=~,dx=~,dy=1,dz=~] <---- not working

If you want only certain players to execute "commands" in certain places, you have to use a trigger scoreboard. Then on loop you can run a similar following command to enable any players to /trigger that scoreboard.

scoreboard players enable @a[x=100,y=80,z=100,dx=9,dy=0,dz=9] trigger_scoreboard_name

This command enables a player to use the command "/trigger trigger_scoreboard_name" when they enter the bounding box of xyz(100-110, 80-81, 100-110).

Then you have to handle what happens when a player's trigger scoreboard changes.

  • Note: if u leave the x,y,z arguments out of the selector, they default to the command's execution position. Meaning you can "execute positioned ~-10 ~-5 ~-10 run ..." to shift the bounding box in the opposite direction.

    If the players leave the region, they will remain enabled to trigger the objective. To disable their trigger, have them run /trigger <obj> add 0 when they leave. See gaming.stackexchange.com/a/382347
