Hi, well I had to get back for you again, after hours without any lucky.
When the character dies I can change the text for one number less, but when the layout restarted it backs to the first number.
Well, I saw some references for global variables, I created one, but I have no idea how to use it.
int(.text) - 1
I found this expression but I think it can be used only in Private Variables.
No lucky too finding some examples, when I was near from it, the files are missing...
Any help is appreciated!
Thanks for now.
Make a global variable (you've got that down) with an initial value of 3 or 5 or however many you want. You can then reference this number from any layout.
If Player collides with 'kill' --- Subtract 1 from global variable "Lives"
--- Lifetext: Set text to 'lives'
Use the single quotes so it knows you're referencing a global variable. Let me know if that makes sense! Then you can do things like
Is global variable 'lives' Less or equal 0 --- System: Go to layout 'usersucksatthisgame' with transition "None"
or whatever you'd like!
Let me know if that made sense.
Thanks by the fast reply. =]
No lucky here =Z

This is what I did.
Try running Debugger to see exactly what the problem is.
Try doing global('lives') instead of 'lives'.
Or does it work both ways?

Looks a progress.
Well as 'Text' the Global Variable is not working.
As Number, yes:

But putting the Set Text, it changes to "LIVES" letters, not numbers.
Set text doesn't change anything. It just does what you tell it to. You order the text box to set the text to the word "Lives".
A global variable is adressed with the keyword global.
Here is a cap showing how you have to do it.
Also, please have a look at the wiki. It really helps with issues like this one :)

Please don't apologize. There is no need to! This is the help forum - where if not here could one ask for help? <img src="smileys/smiley1.gif" border="0" align="middle" />
