OH MY GOD.. I derped so freaking hard.  My code was fine.  I had thought I copied and pasted things over from the button where it was "On mouse press" and put it into a timer... As I look at it this morning, there's no code.  Fixed that and everything works just fine.  Boy do I feel stupid.

Basically, I wanted to have a feature, that if you pressed a specific button, would increase it, but if you just let the game sit around, it would also increase.  I had assumed that having the exact same coding but just changing the starting parameters, so instead of:

On Mouse Press
Set Stock to Stock + 1

It would be:

Every 5 seconds
Set Stock to Stock + 1

Unfortunately, the second code (Every 5 seconds) isn't working.  I tried searching for a couple of hours, and either my googling abilities have failed, or there isn't another topic (at least, easily found) on this.

Any ideas what's going on/How I can fix it?

For me it started way back when I would watch my siblings make silly things in Qbasic... I always wanted to be able to make something with coding.  Having something like Stencyl making it user friendly and cheap?  This is like a dream come true.  I'm really excited to see what I can come up with.

I love playing Sudoku.  I find it to be incredibly relaxing.  I've also loved Logic Puzzles, and finding Sudoku puzzles was one of the best things.  Then being able to find so many of them for free online, or through my phone has saved me money.  I like having them for things like waiting rooms... because you can start and stop them whenever.

I'm currently a pre-service Educator, but I would love to be able to use a tool like this in my classroom.  Although my focus is definitely younger ages, I'm wondering (and part of this would be me needing to think about it more) if there would be a way to either make a kit, or do something to make it friendlier for even younger students.

At the very least, I would love using this as a tool to create interactive quizzes or presentations for students.  Using it outside of the realm of traditional flash games (Which is how I originally got to Stencyl) would be fantastic I think.  It's definitely a tool I will keep in my mind when designing lessons and units, I can see many great things coming from the blend of Stencyl and Education.
