Bool works everywhere but specific if statement.

                }
            }
    
        }
    }


**The bool leftChoice, which is changed to true upon the trigger enter doesnt work in the if (leftChoice == true) in ZombieCardReactions();
It actually doesnt effect the if statement at all, but in update I have a Debug.Log that says the bool is actually changing to true. So what gives? Any help would be much appreciated.
Asked the question but could not get any advice that would actually help me.**

Hi

Evaluating your code, below you’ll find a scenario how this would happen:

Method ZombieCardReactions has an additional outer IF statement that checks if variable ZombieCard1 actually points to a GameObject instance. Given the randomness you apply in method SpawnZombieCard() it is fairly possible that variable ZombieCard1 is actually null, in which case method ZombieCardReactions() will not reach the second IF statement at all.

It’s not a matter of whether or not the bool is correctly evaluated… the code just doesn’t get to that point.

With kind regards,
