Hoover state won't let explosion state stay open

Dec 18, 2014

I have, hopefully, a simple question.   Why would the state revert back to normal after clicking on the present?  I would like for it to stay open.

It had stayed open before I added the hoover state, now it closes after being clicked on.

Any thoughts would be much appreciated.

Hi Niomi

SL has default states so you don't need to create a custom 'Hoover' state and you don't need the trigger that you created. 

So in the first slide I

  • delete the 'Hoover' state and I added the default 'Hover' state. 
  • deleted the triggered associated with your 'Hoover' state
  • and added a trigger - Change state of red/silver to 'explosion' when user clicks red/silver.

So what happens, the red/silver present starts life in 'Normal state'.  SL knows when the user hovers the mouse over and changes the state automatically to 'Hover state' - which has the 'click me' instruction on it.  The user clicks the present and the new trigger says change the state to explosion and keep it like that.

Here is the updated story file - only slide 1 touched and only the red/silver present.

If you need more help let me know
