How do I stop "Is overlapping" firing for many instances

  • Alright, here is the problem. I have an object which display text on the screen when it is overlapping the player sprite. There are multiple instances of the object.

    In the event sheet for the layout I have a couple of events:

    Object > Is overlapping > Player > Set Position for Text (On Screen)

    and

    Object> X Is overlapping > Player > Set Position for Text (Off Screen)

    It works fine when there is only one instance, but the moment there are several it stops displaying the text at all...

    I have the feeling that "Is overlapping" checks for the specific instance and not whether it the object type in general is overlapping. Is there a way around this?

    Thank you very much for your time.

  • My apologies. I've fixed it. I simply set the X is overlapping ABOVE the Is overlapping in the event sheet, allowing it to fire sooner, then check if it is overlapped. This worked. Thank you and sorry for any inconvenience!
