• Hey guys,

I got a math related question:

I have a variable witch keeps track of how many times the player goes to the main menu. I want to check if it is dividable by 3 and then do something like show an ad.

How can I achieve this?

• Check the number in the variable like this:

variable%3=0;

• Check the number in the variable like this:

variable%3=0;

Hey,

It does not seem to work.

I made it so whenever I clicked it would ad 1 point to the var, I added a debug txt object witch would show me the var points and I added your code like this:

System - Compare Variable - [Var Name] % 3 = 0 (And then I would change the position of an object)

• Here's an example for you:

• Wow!

I didn't know you could compare two values! This helped me a lot, thanks!

Hi again,

I got another related question (if you don't mind...):

how would I do the same thing with a variable that would jump by 1,2 or 3 at a time?

I basically want this:

"If var X is equal to 10 or 11 or 12 then execute code"

I want it to happen every 10 units (10 or 11 or 12; 20 or 21 or 22... and so on) and the var would also go indefinitely (so I can't hard-code it)

Do you have any idea how to do this?

Also, if you don't have the time to help me with this I will start a new entry in the forum; I replied back because you knew already what I wanted and it is easier to explain =D

• Use event: Is Between Values and use these:

Lower bound: 0

Upper bound: 2
