1 sentence description of the problem (I was doing _________, and then __________ happened): I was making a don’t tap the button game, when I played it, the text was not working. I went into the code and changed the blank text object to “hello” then it worked! I was kinda confused tho.

Steps that the Hopscotch team can take to reproduce my problem every time:

  1. Make a text object, leave it blank
  2. Add code
    ….

I expected this to happen: to work

But instead this happened: it didn’t

Here’s a sweet screenshot:

I tried it on another project but the bug didn’t occur on that project

Is anything increasing the Talk variable? If not, your text won’t set….

Just looked at the photo again. Maybe try setting the text “hi” immediately instead of when talk = 0?

I also got that bug on my don’t tap the button game. It made the blank text into not blank and it worked but when I made it blank again it failed so i kept it un blank.
