Hello everyone, hope you are all doing fine.

For making an animated hotspot I know the basics from Hopky's video tutorial, plus a little of my experiences.

Take a look at the .gif
See, my animation sometimes works nicely and smoothly, and sometimes it doesn't.

I use a variable, timer and the ht scale logic block. I have tried doubling the speed and more of the timer and giving it different Actions:
Activate -> variable -> true / Deactivate -> variable - false
or
Activate -> variable -> not(-)

Seems to be something about the maths, can't figuring it out...

Thanks in advance,
Julien

Hi Julien,
Seems something is getting out of sync.
I will be coving this on Wednesdays Webinar, Variables and Logic blocks.
But if you wanted can you create a skin with just your hotspot and timer?
If not here is the webinar page: https://ggnome.com/webinars/
You're looking at Variables and Logic Block Part 1.

Hi Hopki,
I haven't figured out yet this sync problem.
Thanks I will come to the next webinar :D
Note: your variable trick (to show a variable state, covered on your webinar part 1) is very very good. Great help!

Hi Hopki,
I got something, look like this sync problem comes from Firefox.
Have a look my screen flow: Firefox is in the middle and Chrome (which I almost never use) at the right.
Awaiting for feedback! :)

Thank you in advance,
Julien

Hi Julien,
Odd I am not seeing this, can you copy the timer and your images into a new skin and test, do you see the same thing?
If so please send me the skin to support with a link to this post.
