Trigger not working from Q3 on for a 10 question Hangman quiz/game. What am I doing wrong

Mar 20, 2019

I created a Hangman prequiz using the number variable "Hangman" (set to "0") as my variable.  Then I created a triggers to determine which layer I wanted people to see.  It works beautifully for incorrect triggers - I set trigger for layers 1-6 like this: Show Layer "Incorrect1" when variance changes for "Hangman" if "Hangman is equal to 1.

For Correct answers, the first question I just said Show layer "Correct 1" if user clicks "correct button".  For the second and subsequent questions I tried both

First tried:  Show Layer  "Correct2" when variance changes for "Hangman" if "Hangman" is equal to 2.  Then tried: Show Layer "Correct 2" when variance changes for "Hangman" if "Hangman" is less than 1.

Question 1 and 2 work beautifully with this trigger.  Q3 - 10 just do nothing if I get nothing incorrect (my variable stays at 0). What am I doing wrong?  See my work Prequiz Hangman Game

Hey Kathy,

First off, excellent work on this game design! I love how you motivate learners to answer correctly by incorporating Hangman into the quiz questions. 

I'd like to get a closer look at how you designed this interaction so I can pinpoint what's going on with the Correct layers. Would you be willing to share the Storyline file here in this discussion?

You also have the option to send it to me privately by uploading it here. I'll delete it when I'm done troubleshooting.
