I've been trying to make a level select frame graphics were easy but then the part which i dread the most... the programming.

So instead of telling myself there must be an easier way to do this i just started throwing hot steamy piles of crap in there until it looked like it worked until i noticed this.o_O

When a group is deactivated and then when a frame finishes the group re-activates itself in the moment of ending the frame... and this creates a humongouse flaw in my programming making it easier for players to want to select the first level but instead they press a bunch of arrow keys by accident and end up on level 6.o_O

Has anyone else noticed this?

Whoa, that doesn't sound right. O_o Are you sure you're not reactivating it somewhere?

Sort of sounds like a problem I had, but it had to do with arrow keys getting pressed at the start of the next frame when the player pressed them while the old frame was finishing. I just had the arrow key group deactivated and set the timer to re-activate it after 1 second. This way that didn't happen again. Maybe you could do something similar?

Meh; all i did was throw more crap into it and its working now... just copy paste move events down a bit.

But i couldn't help but notice that problem; even though its not my problem now it is still a problem with MMF2.

I ran this over in my head so many times...

are you sure the group reactivates?
it could be another event somewhere considering the way you program. if you're not just being modest.

I do organise my programming well in nice tidy groups with comments.

But my crap i just mean not the best and most small usage of programming; it ussually takes me quite a few events just to get something to work... and now its all just malfunctioning again._

i bet all my money its your events and NOT MMF2s fault. I use groups all the time and they work fine, as do many other people.

Check each event that reactivates the group. Most surely it's being triggered at the end of the frame without you knowing, because I've never had this problem occur. Sometimes even when you think it's impossible that the setup is wrong, something will don on you.

Do you really need groups in order to make a level select frame?
