Stopping Audio from Repeating

Oct 22, 2018

The Main menu is gated so that the four modules must be completed in sequence. When the learner enters the main menu, there is a general audio. When each module is completed, I want the audio to stop when the learner is returned to the Main Menu for the next lesson. All of the Module gates have variables that work correctly. I am using the following variable for the audio: stop media, media =audio 1, when the  timeline starts, object is Main menu, and the condition is if module 1 = true. It does not work. I have tried to stop media and pause media without success. Any idea would be appreciated. Thanks.

Saved state has the audio, reinitial state has the same audio, automatically decide has the same audio - been there, done that. I am to the point of placing the audio on a new screen before the Menu that explains things only but the navigation to the actual modules will be on a separate screen without audio. Then after each lesson, the learner will come back to the non-audio screen. Thanks for your help.

I would put the audio on a layer and use a true/false variabe to control whether or not the layer is played.

  1. create a true/fasle variabled called audioDone and set the inital value to false.
  2. add a trigger to the base slide that say show audio layer when the timeline starts if vatable audioDone is false
  3. on the audio layer create a triggers adjusts the audioDone layer to true when the timeline starts or ends ( your call as the which you want to use)
