variable "use count" - not adding up
I made a game (like chutes and ladders) that users will play within an eLearning. Unfortunately I just checked my use count and saw something concerning. I have 9 people/avatars that a learner can select as their game piece at the beginning of the game. Throughout each slide (game square), the game piece switches to that face for their game piece. Theoretically, each of the 9 variables for the 9 avatars should have the same use count. Correct? Well.. they don't. And I can't think of an easier way to check where I made a mistake other than going through each and every of the 50+ slides. Ahh!
You can see two avatar variables are not consistent with the rest - Alanda at 56 versus 120 and Lou at 118 versus 120.
I think the Alanda variable is drastically less because each of the avatar objects are labeled "avatar.alanda" (initially I was going to have each avatar a separate object on the timeline and variables hiding the 8 avatars that weren't selected but then I realized doing states would have been much easier so I went that direction but I never went and relabeled my one remaining object on the timeline to a more generic title like "avatar" and just kept them all "avatar.alanda". It's got to be something along that reasoning... except to test this theory I went and renamed a few of the objects "avatar" (dropping the .alanda) and my use count remained exactly the same. Thoughts? How do I make sure the avatar alanda is accounted for on every one of the slides?
Because it's so close to the other variable use counts, I'm assuming this was just a user error and on two of my game slides there's no variable for Lou. How do I find the two slides without going over each and every slide's variables?
