Random INT (No back to back)
« on: January 18, 2015, 02:24:56 AM »
I'd like to see the random also have included a box that you can select that says:
"Allow Back-to-Back".  When not checked, the next random number will not be the same as the previous.  So if the random INT picked 5, then the very next time it can not pick 5.  The same number would not be picked back to back.  So maybe it would store it in a variable and would look to see what the last variable was or something.  Not really usefull for floats, but intergers, yeah.

So yeah, it's not completely random, but then again what is?  Would be a cool addition.

You could just do a compare and if it is the same as the last random then redo it.

i am working on it but still having a problem on it

for now you can use "random weighted" int or maybe "send random event",
the have both a no repeat function

or wait a bit for my action :)

"i am working on it"

You guys are amazing.  Unity's forems are full of selfish, troll children with elitists attitudes.  Playmaker forems are full of nice, cool helpful people.  Personally, I could script the check myself, but for the betterment of everyone, this would be a great addition.  As I see stuff like that, I post it because down the road people will be looking for these things and will be amazed.  I know I know. 

Good job

I don't know C# but do know javascript.  If that page has a quick tutorial on how to make actions with JS, I would give it a go.
