i looked into that but since i only have three values that i need for this particular array i didnt think i really needed to go that far. all i need is
(0, 0, 0): Easy
(1, 0, 0): Normal
(2, 0, 0): Hard
Then i need one custom sprite button that starts on "Difficulty: Easy"
click once: "Difficulty: Normal"
click again: "Difficulty: Hard"
click one more time: "Difficulty: Easy"
and it loops that way.
pretty much the exact same system that Minecraft uses excluding a "peaceful" mode.
Im not entirely familiar with the rules here at the scirra forums but i dont suppose I can request that someone makes an example .capx (compatible with r173 and no external plugins) that has this system setup for me so i can transfer it to mine. As long as its not imposing and they have the time? as simple as possible yet still able to be customized and configured to adapt to another scenario if i run into this problem in the future.
thanks in advance and thanks for the help from everyone so far.
