I am making a game where a block disappears off screen only to be recreated elsewhere.

I use an alterable value (movement value) to determine the controlled state of the block, there is a second alt. value (anim dir) used to control the animation direction.

When the block is destroyed and recreated it only sets itself to the first direction. the code is as follows:

collision between Puzzle Block and Level Block
+anim dir (Puzzle Block) = anim dir (Level Block)

Destroy Puzzle Block
Destroy Level Block
Create Puzzle Block
Set Movement Value to 0
Set anim dir to Random(5)

i have got an Always event in there so that the Animation Direction is set to the value of anim dir all the time.

this always sets the animation direction to 0 for some reason. it's basically the same code for if the tested values do not match however i set it a second movement (pinball) to take it off screen. once it is destroyed it is set back to the normal movement (static).

Can anyone work out why this is happening from the snippet of code i have or do you need more.

It might be having trouble picking out the created instance. Try doing something like:

Puzzle Block Value A = 0
>>Set Value A to 1 + Set anim dir to Random(5)

Though now I reread your post, I'm a bit confused by the end. If that doesn't work, could you clarify what you did with the pinball movement?

This is just a guess, and might be completely wrong...

Perhaps when you say "Set anim_dir" to Random(5), it is only affecting the instance of "PuzzleBlock" which was involved in the collision - ie. The one that was just destroyed. The newly created block would remain at it's default value of 0.

If that were the case, you could try splitting the event in two:

+ Collision PBlock and LBlock
-> destroy PBlock
-> destroy LBlock
-> create PBlock

+ PBlock: flag0 is OFF
-> set anim_dir to random(5)
-> set flag0 ON
// since flags are OFF by default, this will only target a newly created instance.


EDIT: Looks like OMC beat me to it

I think your solution might work Sketchy.

@OMC: i'm using the pinball movement to make it bounce off screen on a diagonal.

Yep Sketchy's idea works. I'll be posting a project page for this soon when it's got some substance to it.

Apparently my suggestion was skipped over, since it's the same thing. >_>

Can't wait to find out what the project is.

Sorry OMC - I didn't skip over your suggestion it's just that i am already using the alt vals to control another aspect of the blocks. That's the only reason i used sketchy's idea as it used the flag option.
