I am having a strange issue. I have an event setup that is meant to adjust a variable 1. The particular page of the event will only execute if variable 1 = 4. later in the event it adds one to variable 1 to make variable 1 = 5. For some reason, it will modifies variable 4 instead of variable 1. I have tried using control variable to just set variable 1 to equal 5. This did not resolve the issue. I have also tried setting up a different event to change the variable through an event call once this event is done executed. This gave the same results. it modifies variable 4 instead of variable 1.

Can you screen shot a picture for us so we can see your workflow?

We really need to see screenshots of your events to know what is happening.  A description really leaves out a lot of important information.


Please post screenshots of each page of your event, and include the whole event window in the image.


(Having said that, I have a feeling I've read something somewhere before about there being a bug where variables are concerned - so it might be worth searching for such a thread, and/or uninstalling, re-downloading and reinstalling 2K3 completely)


Edit: I haven't found anything about a bug, but I did find something that I thought about when I first read your issue, then decided to remove from my post because I couldn't see the same option in Ace (I don't have 2K3 installed).


It sounds like what you're doing is, instead of selecting a variable using an id, you're selecting a variable using a variable.  So it's looking into variable 1 and retrieving the value (4) and using that to determine what variable needs to be updated.


Here's a thread where it's mentioned, and the reference is for 2K3:





and another here with a screenshot showing the two locations.  I suspect you've used the bottom option outlined in red for variable 1, when you should have used the top one:

Work on the Decepticon Seeker sprites is taking longer than I anticipated. I have five down: Starscream, Thundercracker, Skywarp, Acid Storm and Nova Storm. Three left to go: Ion Storm, Sunstorm (needs rework), and Slipstream. After completing their walking sprites, should I wait to post them after I've done a transformation sequence?
