Only First Slider Stop Works

Aug 19, 2016


I built a slider with 5 stops. Initial position is 1; layers are triggered to appear for each slider stop. The first stop works (the layer appears), but no other layers work. I tried both while dragged and after release, but still no luck. 

The triggers are all using the same variable and the same slider name. 

I'm stumped. Any ideas?

Likely when the layer appears, the mouse loses contact with the slider, especially if you have put a slider on each layer. if you have nothing on that part of the layer, and the slider shows through from the base layer, it should work.

But there could be a bunch of other things causing this problem. If you want to attach your .story file, someone here could take a peek at it.

It is slider 3 variable in the actual course.

I figured out the problem. I used the correct variable in the trigger, but I thought the condition object was the slider name (slider1), not the variable name. Still a little odd that one worked but not others, but that's okay. I wish I could hide all the layers in one trigger or conversely, have a trigger that shows the base layer.

Thanks for looking at this.
