So I have an event with the following conditions:
Mouse click on Object
Variable A = 0
Among the actions it does is modifying the variable so that clicking on the object a second time no longer triggers the event.
However, that doesn't work and repeated clicks on the object keep triggering the event, which baffles me. For the sake of testing I've putting the variable's initial number at something other than 0 and the event doesn't trigger anymore, which makes it even weirder in a way. I'm frantically looking for a workaround, but even if I , this is really driving me crazy as the same structure seems to work perfectly fine for me in other situations.
do you have any wait events between them? where are the condition palced in your event sheet? try place it on a top ranked event ... near start of layout .. that wold do the trick.. since will not wait for others events to happen.
you have to keep in mind when you add wait actions between lines
it wont stop only that event but also everything that is under it for the exact amount of wait + the amount the time it takes to process all the events till reaches the required action, so for example
if u have the conditions u gave, and have a wait of 2 seconds and then change value of VariableA and in same time, after first click and while the 2 seconds didnt passed youl be able to trigger the same actions for N clicking speed u have in ur fingers. then the VariableA will change the value.
try change variableA as soon as the conditions are meet, which is first on top of actions triggered by those 2 conditions.
