Triggers and States

Jan 22, 2013

I have one slide in a file that has a number of triggers on it and one in particular is only partially working. When the two streams in the file are completed the buttons to choose the path should become hidden, but only one of the buttons is actually updating to the hidden state. I have no idea how to fix this. Any suggestions to fix this would be appreciated as I will need to use this process in other files in this series. The offending slide is entitled 'Path selection'.

Hi Sharyn,

I think I see the problem here. The images are set to change to hidden when the character is set to the "completed" state. However, this state only occurs when both images have been clicked. So, if you click on the second image first, and come back to the slide after taking that path, the state won't change. It will change properly for whichever you use last, though, because the character state will be changed.

I think I found a way to fix this problem, though. What I did was remove the image for the "visited" state of the images. Keep the state itself, but remove the image for the visited state. So, when returning to the slide, that image will be removed from the slide.

I'm attaching the modified version so you can take a look. All of the states and triggers are still there, but I've removed the actual image for the state "visited". 

Let me know if you have any questions!
