    Simulation Help Needed

    SeedofHope Level 1
      I am creating software simulations of our company’s proprietary software using Flash. One of the things I want to do is to provide multi-level feedback for the user.

      For example, let’s say you are supposed to click Button B. On their first try, the user clicks Button C instead. I’d want to provide a first notification to the user that this was incorrect, give them a hint and let them try again. On their second try, the user clicks Button D. I’d want to provide another notification to the user that this was incorrect and give them a bigger hint. On their third try, the user clicks Button Q. (Yes, at this point the person is a moron!). I’d want to provide final notification to the user that this was incorrect and jump to a mc that shows them what they should’ve done. (i.e. It will show the mouse pointer going over to Button B and clicking it. Then, the user will click something to move to the next task.

      Of course, if at any point the user does actually manage to click Button B, they receive a correct notification and then move on to the next task.

      My challenge is really creating this multi-response feedback in ActionScript. The rest I can do.

      Does anyone have any ideas, .flas I could look at , tutorials, etc? I’d REALLY appreciate it. ☺

          initialize a variable that tracks the number of responses to a question. increment that variable each time a button is pressed. check that variable's value each time a button is pressed and use that to display the correct notification (possibly using an array to store the notification responses).
