Tappable Overlay's not Working!

Hi Everyone,

I am having such awful trouble with my tappable overlays. I followed Joseph Evan’s tutorial down to a T and have literally been altering the script for hours trying to figure out why two of my tappable overlays aren’t working, when the other one is and they have the exact same scripting.

The tappable buttons are all the same size overlay, and the borders of the overlay are exact to the size of the bubble.

So my ‘ROCK POOL’ tappable button works fine, but the WOODS BUTTON and CABIN isn’t working! It’s so frustrating. Here is the script.
For simplicity sake, I added in label’s instead of branching underneath.

Where would you like to go?

tappable
“ROCK POOL BUTTON”{
goto label rock_pool
}
tappable
“WOODS BUTTON”{
goto label woods
}
tappable
“CABIN”{
goto label cabin

}

Somebody help! What am I doing wrong!? I’m not getting any scripting errors they just simply aren’t working!

Also, when I get onto the for example Rock Pool branch, (the one that actually works) is there a way that I can make the back arrow take me back to the home screen at any time, not just after I’ve collected the item from that scene? I’ve tried jumbling it around but the only way it will work is if you collect the item first, and then the arrow will activate. (if that makes sense!)

Have you try removing the word “tappable” before your WOODS BUTTON and your CABIN? I don’t think it’s necessary to repeat it each time and it might be why it’s not working…

tappable “ROCK POOL BUTTON” {
goto label rock_pool
} “WOODS BUTTON” {
goto label woods
} “CABIN” {
goto label cabin
}

I did try that, and it gave my script errors :frowning: that’s why I put it in but it’s still not working :frowning:

Okay… And what about if instead of “CABIN” you put else? Because tappables work like choices…

I did think to change that, but the WOODS BUTTON isn’t working either :frowning: I’ve filed a support ticket incase.

So this is what happens if I remove ‘tappable’ from each one. I’ve tried enclosing it in brackets but that also isn’t working. On Joseph Evan’s tutorial, he lays it out exactly like this and has no issues, I just really don’t get it!

I FIXED IT YAY thank you!

It works like this!

I see. You need to delete the spaces you have on lines 1775 and 1779. Try writting like I did in my previous answer to you.

Great :smile:
