Hi, I've been trying to get this to work for a while but I'm pretty confused.

I want an event to happen after the player walks a certain number of steps.

This is what I have so far:

I've tried this too:
[ISPOILER]1627319768557.png1627319783521.png[/ISPOILER]
The text should appear after they've walked a certain number of steps, but it never appears.

What am I doing wrong?

Steps will only be 5 at one point in the game, and never again - after the player has taken exactly 5 steps.

Explain what you're wanting to do, and we'll tell you how to do it. Your triggers and events are a bit messed up, so we'll take it from the beginning.

Hey Shaz, so what I want is for a text message to popup after the player walks a certain amount of steps. After they read it the event is erased so the text doesn't pop up again, and the game stops counting the players steps.

From where? The start of the game? Entering a particular map? Interacting with a specific event?

When the player goes to a new map

one event on parallel with two commands only:
1) control variable "startcount"= steps
2) erase event

a second event on parallel with the following commands:
1) wait 1 frame
2) control variable "currentstep" = steps
3) control variable "currentstep" -= "startcount" (substracting startcount to see how many steps since entering)
4) conditional branch if "currentstep" > 5 (or however many steps you want)
show text message
erase event
(both command have to be inside the conditional branch)


please note that this will give the message once per entering map. If you want it once total then you would have to switch off instead of erase event

Thank you! Works perfectly

Worked on some face-sets. Need to finish up the lot and cut some out of the game. She's looking pretty cute.
