  • So I have a mute toggle button that toggles all music and sounds on/off. I am currently using the set toggle silent function. The problem is when I mute all sounds from one layout, and I unmute(toggle) all sounds on another layout, the music that usually starts on the start of layout doesn't start playing. I can see the logic behind this, but I can't seem to figure out how to get this the way I want it to be. Any suggestions or help would be much appreciated!

    Thank you

  • just make a Global Variable that has the state of the music..then add an Action to OnStartOfLayout that always sets the audio to whatever the state is..

  • How exactly would the Global Variable correspond with the toggle of the mute button? I don't quite get how to toggle sound other than using the Set silent function.


    The thing is within my game global variables are often being reset between layouts, so I don't think using global variables would be optimal for this game. It's just a tiny bug that occurs in the game.

    Edit 2:

    I found out that you can toggle using boolean instance variables, but by using instance variables I guess each separate layout won't be able to grab the instance variable value from another layout?

  • Instance variables will only be global if you make the object global. Otherwise they will not retain their value between layouts.

    You don't need a built in toggle.. just do this:


    If isMusicOn = "yes" then Set isMusicOn to "no"


    Set isMusicOn to "yes"

    Make sure you are untoggling Silent before you start playing the music.
