Full Version: Updating button text based upon different variable values
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
I am working through among one of the final issues on my script. I have the temp and rate bars updating like I want. I have the ammo and msec countdown timers counting downward with keypress f is initiated.

What I am wanting is to have the crit bar update based on ammo and temp levels.
initially nothing is displayed. at 50 rounds remaining it flashes critical and then at 0 it stops for a few seconds and says out. And when the tempbar reaches 90% it flashes overheat briefly.

I can get the overheat to work more or less the way I want. I think my issue is that due to the if statements with ammo levels not being exclusive ranges, the conflicts are preventing proper updates.

The script works with no real errors.

I think I am missing something blatently obvious in the formatting and function definitions. I think it has to do with the fact that if ammo count is lessthan or equal to 50 it flashes critical and also at ammo count == 1 it flashes out and the dual rules not playing well together.

thoughts?

Is the the location of a flash piece I am basically trying to replace. I ran with tkinter as it seemed to have all the options easily and quickly accessible that pygame did not have. Or my searches and understanding was soo limited that I did not find the specific library modules to use with python with pygame that would do the functional equivalent of what I have now.
Any thoughts anyone?
