  • I had this problem too, but I think the 'on destroyed' trigger occurs before the destruction is processed, not after. It's helpful, because you can use the destroyed sprites's variables and position to do things like place an explosion, but yeah it does mean the sprite still is counted by the count.

    I just change my checks to if sprite.count = 1. Or maybe you can could use a separate event "if sprite.count = 0"?

  • This is by design. Objects aren't really destroyed until the end of the next top-level event. This is an important feature so events like "Destroy Sprite, create explosion at Sprite" do what you expect (since there is still a sprite to create an explosion at in the subsequent action). Closing as not a bug.
