Hey,
I've started my first dialoge mode setting. Dialoges are easy but i'm trying to make it so when you click Dialoge[1] it changes the dialoge button to this, example. Game Income [Low] (once clicked) Game Income [Medium] Game Income [High] etc etc. This is what i have so far, atm it is not working.

Remove the "Do nothing"s.
Waits also ruin such a system...
You create buttons AFTER showing the dialog.
And you only add buttons, you never remove any.


I'd do something like this:

Init
Events
Time - Elapsed game time is 0.10 seconds
Conditions
Actions
-------- Base Values --------
Set ButtonSuffix[0] = [Low]
Set ButtonSuffix[1] = [On]
Set ButtonSuffix[2] = [Low]
-------- Other Options --------
Set ButtonSuffix[3] = [Low]
Set ButtonSuffix[4] = [Normal]
Set ButtonSuffix[5] = [High]
Set ButtonSuffix[6] = [On]
Set ButtonSuffix[7] = [Off]
-------- Setup and show Dialog --------
Trigger - Run Setup Dialog <gen> (ignoring conditions)
[/trigger]

That's easy: it sets up the suffixes and runs the next trigger, which is...

  • Setup Dialog
    • Events
    • Conditions
    • Actions
      • Dialog - Clear OptionalModes
      • Dialog - Create a dialog button for OptionalModes labelled (Income + ButtonSuffix[0])
      • Set DialogButton[0] = (Last created dialog Button)
      • Dialog - Create a dialog button for OptionalModes labelled (Gladiator Mode + ButtonSuffix[1])
      • Set DialogButton[1] = (Last created dialog Button)
      • Dialog - Create a dialog button for OptionalModes labelled (Speed + ButtonSuffix[2])
      • Set DialogButton[2] = (Last created dialog Button)
      • Dialog - Create a dialog button for OptionalModes labelled Start Game
      • Set DialogButton[3] = (Last created dialog Button)
      • -------- Show Dialog --------
      • Dialog - Show OptionalModes for Player 1 (Red)
No event, because we will only call this trigger when needed.
It's best if this remains a separate trigger.
Clearing the dialog first is important!

The actual button clicking will happen here:
  • Click Button
    • Events
      • Dialog - A dialog button is clicked for OptionalModes
    • Conditions
    • Actions
      • If (All Conditions are True) then do (Then Actions) else do (Else Actions)
        • If - Conditions
          • (Clicked dialog button) Equal to DialogButton[0]
        • Then - Actions
          • Set ButtonSuffixC[0] = (ButtonSuffixC[0] + 1)
          • -------- Check to restart the value from start --------
          • If (All Conditions are True) then do (Then Actions) else do (Else Actions)
            • If - Conditions
              • ButtonSuffixC[0] Greater than or equal to 3
            • Then - Actions
              • Set ButtonSuffixC[0] = 0
            • Else - Actions
          • -------- Set the correct suffix --------
          • Set ButtonSuffix[0] = ButtonSuffix[(3 + ButtonSuffixC[0])]
          • -------- Setup and show the dialog --------
          • Trigger - Run Setup Dialog <gen> (ignoring conditions)
        • Else - Actions
          • If (All Conditions are True) then do (Then Actions) else do (Else Actions)
            • If - Conditions
              • (Clicked dialog button) Equal to DialogButton[1]
            • Then - Actions
              • Set ButtonSuffixC[1] = (ButtonSuffixC[1] + 1)
              • -------- Check to restart the value from start --------
              • If (All Conditions are True) then do (Then Actions) else do (Else Actions)
                • If - Conditions
                  • ButtonSuffixC[1] Greater than or equal to 2
                • Then - Actions
                  • Set ButtonSuffixC[1] = 0
                • Else - Actions
              • -------- Set the correct suffix --------
              • Set ButtonSuffix[1] = ButtonSuffix[(6 + ButtonSuffixC[1])]
              • -------- Setup and show the dialog --------
              • Trigger - Run Setup Dialog <gen> (ignoring conditions)
            • Else - Actions
              • If (All Conditions are True) then do (Then Actions) else do (Else Actions)
                • If - Conditions
                  • (Clicked dialog button) Equal to DialogButton[2]
                • Then - Actions
                  • Set ButtonSuffixC[2] = (ButtonSuffixC[2] + 1)
                  • -------- Check to restart the value from start --------
                  • If (All Conditions are True) then do (Then Actions) else do (Else Actions)
                    • If - Conditions
                      • ButtonSuffixC[2] Greater than or equal to 3
                    • Then - Actions
                      • Set ButtonSuffixC[2] = 0
                    • Else - Actions
                  • -------- Set the correct suffix --------
                  • Set ButtonSuffix[2] = ButtonSuffix[(3 + ButtonSuffixC[2])]
                  • -------- Setup and show the dialog --------
                  • Trigger - Run Setup Dialog <gen> (ignoring conditions)
                • Else - Actions
You only need to look at one of these ITE's, as they're basically all the same:

  • If (All Conditions are True) then do (Then Actions) else do (Else Actions)
    • If - Conditions
      • (Clicked dialog button) Equal to DialogButton[0]
    • Then - Actions
      • Set ButtonSuffixC[0] = (ButtonSuffixC[0] + 1)
      • -------- Check to restart the value from start --------
      • If (All Conditions are True) then do (Then Actions) else do (Else Actions)
        • If - Conditions
          • ButtonSuffixC[0] Greater than or equal to 3
        • Then - Actions
          • Set ButtonSuffixC[0] = 0
        • Else - Actions
      • -------- Set the correct suffix --------
      • Set ButtonSuffix[0] = ButtonSuffix[(3 + ButtonSuffixC[0])]
      • -------- Setup and show the dialog --------
      • Trigger - Run Setup Dialog <gen> (ignoring conditions)
    • Else - Actions
Arrays start at 0, we make use of that like this (I know it's actually not good to use arrays like this, you should use separate variables unless you loop them, but whatever).

It increases the correct button count by 1, then checks if it reached is maximum value yet, if it did: set it to 0 (basically what you did, but all values -1).

Then it sets the suffix to "3 + count" (check the first trigger I posted). This will return the correct suffix.
Once we set the suffix, we can run our setup-trigger again to show the updated dialog.
