Hello! I’m new here, and have only been creating games for about six months. I started with Stencyl and got fed up with the constant error codes, so I’m trying to finish my series of games for my students here. I need to know how to make a random note (objects from a group) become visible, program the correct answer and hints related to that note, mark answers correct and incorrect, and then pull a new random note. I have 33 different notes that I want them to label twice each (going through all 33 before repeating), then give them a grade report to screenshot at the end.
My problem now is that I can’t figure out how to make random notes appear and disappear in the exact places I’ve put them. All of my searches are trying to convince me that random is only for numbers, and I know there is a way to write an expression for this. I even went through and renamed all of my note objects with numbers and still can’t make it work.
Once I have that figured out, I need to know how to compare an instance variable from whichever note object is randomly shown to an instance variable for the hints and only show the hint that corresponds to that note.
Any help is appreciated, and even more so if you can point me towards a resource that explains text expressions better than the wiki.
