  • I have a continue button that switches out the components on the screen with a new start button. However, since the Start button appears exactly where the continue button is, the OnTouchEnd triggers the click for the Start button as well. How do I prevent OnTouchEnd to only trigger for the Continue button and not the next button that shows up under it?

  • There probably is a way to pick the top instance ( even may be called pick top ), but I usually do this stuff by having the button that is supposed to be underneath the first one off screen, same x coordinates, but something like -999 Y. Then when on touch end triggers, move top button to - 999 y, and move the other one to whatever Y it is supposed to be.

  • You can bound it with your own rules :

    - Set it invisible when inactive, then on touched it, if it visible, you do the action

    - Do the same if you want to use Opacity

    - Have global variable to cover all your action

    Ex : gamestate = 0 --> you can touch Start Only

    gamestate = 1 --> you can touch Continue Only

    - Or any rule which you can set to make you feel convenience when doing your game.

    Cheers.

  • The easy/hacky way is to add "wait 0 seconds" before you switch out the buttons. Wait 0 seconds is equal to "wait one tick"

  • "On tap object"

    This did the trick

  • I create a global value called "WAIT" and have an event that If WAIT >0 then subtract 1 from wait every 0.1 seconds.

    For every check of any button being pressed I add the condition that 'WAIT"=0 and in the action it sets WAIT to 5

    This way, the game UI can never accidentally accept a double input just because the finger is still down when the screen switches or a new button appears. It gives the user time to have lifted their finger or thumb off the screen or unclick the mouse or controller button.

  • No no no, add a function that calls a function that calls another function.

    Be sure and put the calls in a group on an includes sheet.

    Newt is our very own veteran forum troll.

    Also newt, on tap object does not produce the result op asked for.

  • Yes it does.

    touché, though it might be an annoying thing to reorder depending on how big the project is/how it is generally ordered
