Reset GUI texture after respawn

I have this GUI texture that changes depending on how many times the jump button i pressed during midair, but when I respawn the function does not work again. It it does not reset, and it stays on the last GUItexture image from the previous jump.

This is my GUI script:

 var trick6 : Texture2D;

var trick5 : Texture2D; var trick4 : Texture2D; var trick3 : Texture2D; var trick2 : Texture2D; var trick1 : Texture2D;

static var SPLASH = 6;

function Update () { switch(SPLASH) { case 0: guiTexture.texture = trick1; break;

     case 1:
         guiTexture.texture = trick2;

     case 2:
         guiTexture.texture = trick3;

     case 3:
         guiTexture.texture = trick4;

     case 4:
         guiTexture.texture = trick5;

     case 5:
         guiTexture.texture = trick6;


I trigger it though my character controller script in the jump function here (post onlye the jumping part of the script):


var jumpSpeed = 15.0; var gravity = 20.0; var speedSmoothing = 5.0; var maxFallSpeed = 50.0;

private var moveDirection = Vector3.zero; private var grounded : boolean = false; private var jumpCount:int; private var onGround:boolean;

function FixedUpdate() { if (grounded) {

   // We are grounded, so recalculate movedirection directly from axes 
   moveDirection = new Vector3(Input.GetAxis("Horizontal"), 0, 0); 
   moveDirection = transform.TransformDirection(moveDirection); 
   moveDirection *= speed; 
  jumpCount = 0; 

} if (Input.GetButtonDown ("Jump") && jumpCount < 20) { moveDirection.y = jumpSpeed; jumpCount++; SplashScript.SPLASH -= 1;


The third last line "SplashScript.SPLASH -= 1:" is where i trigger it through my character controller script.

In your script, you constantly subtract -1 from SplashScript.SPLASH, but never reset it. You probably want to reset it to 6 in the "if(grounded)" case. Also note that your SplashScript does nothing for that default value - you probably want to add a "case 6", which resets to the inital texture.

I don't even know what comands resets a function. :S Am still REALLY wet behind the ears when it comes to scripting.

  • use "var trickDefault : Texture2D;" and assign your initial texture (the one when you don't jump) to it.

  • add this case to the switch: "case 6: guiTexture.texture = trickDefault; break;"

  • add this line directly after "jumpCount = 0;": "SplashScript.SPLASH = 6;"

Note that with your method (since you start with 6 and subtract when jumping) trick6 is the texture shown after 1 jump, trick5 after 2 jumps, etc.
