Next button with Variable not carrying over to my Menu

Nov 15, 2021

I have a menu with 9 buttons. Each button takes me to a section.

I've created 9 T/F variables and set each to false.

When I get to the last slide of a section on the 'menu' button I have a hotspot.

The trigger is On click

Set PT1 to True
Jump to Menu

I have a triggers on my Menu side:

Variable Triggers: PT1

When PT1 changes

Change state of B1 to v2 (just another state)

If PT1=Value True

Change stage of Im1 to Hidden

If PT1=Value True

I've attached the first two scenes - Any help would be greatly appreciated. I've spent way too much time trying to get this to work. sigh...

It doesn't appear to know the pt1 variable is true when it jumps me back to the menu slide.

I'm not sure what you're asking. You state what you did, but not what result you're getting or expecting that's not happening.

I'm going to assume the state isn't changing when you get to the menu. The trigger you have will change the state when the variable changes. However, the variable has already changed from F to T on the previous slide. Thus the variable never changes.

It should be, change the state when the timeline of the slide starts on the condition that var = T. This way the menu slide launches it looks to see what the current value is and then does the state change.
