Buttons work, scores--not so much.

My project is coming together nicely. The interactivity of the pages is coming together, and I think I am going to stump a few readers/players with where I've hidden buttons throughout my presentation.

However, there are a few flies in my nice gooey vat of Flash molasses.

The scoring is kind of screwed up. Though Stephan was nice enough to show me a few things in code (and came up with his own code on the spot), the score will not add up from frame to frame. Instead, the frames add one, but cannot "think" like a game by not adding another point when someone goes to another frame again or go in a different order than the way the elements of CST are listed in my buttons column.


My goal, now that I have everything looking all right, is to work on the coding issues I'm having with the scoring. One thing that I haven't spent much time on this semester is coding things. I've gotten a lot of help from other people (which is great), but I want to dig in and find out for myself what coding craziness is all about--again. Oh, the days of learning HTML...

I'm also thinking about how I can make the chart below act a little more like an interactive document than a chart. I may have, over the pope's names, their photo come up or something.


It all sounds like fun, but I want to make sure that I have enough time to do the really important things, such as the scoring element, that will really drive my finished presentation.

Oh, so that's the chart you were talking about when we were IMing last week... Nice :-D I'll be excited to see how your project turns out!
