My value / repeat shows no errors but will not work?

Asked by 5 days ago

My value / repeat script that spins a motor turns on, but only keeps turning on and the motor spins faster. I have tried using a number value but it still will not work. I don't know if it is the repeat scripts that are interfering but here is the script for anybody who is willing to help:

local main = script.Parent.Main
local switches = script.Parent.Switches
local engine = script.Parent.Engine

switches.Click.ClickDetector.MouseClick:Connect(function(Spin)
    local State = 0
    if State == 0 then
        switches.On.Transparency = 0
        switches.Off.Transparency = 1
        State = 0
        for On = 1, 5 do
            wait(0.5)
            engine.HingeConstraint.AngularVelocity = engine.HingeConstraint.AngularVelocity + 1
        end
    else
        switches.On.Transparency = 1
        switches.Off.Transparency = 0
        State = 0
        for Off = 1, 5 do
            wait(0.5)
            engine.HingeConstraint.AngularVelocity = engine.HingeConstraint.AngularVelocity - 1
        end
    end 
end)

Any help appreciated! :)

Just found out that because the "local state = 0" (on line 6) is inside the function, it will not work! By putting the local outside the function it then works! here is what i mean:

local main = script.Parent.Main
local switches = script.Parent.Switches
local engine = script.Parent.Engine
local value = 0

switches.Click.ClickDetector.MouseClick:Connect(function(Spin)
    if value == 0 then
        switches.On.Transparency = 0
        switches.Off.Transparency = 1
        value = 1
        for On = 1, 5 do
            wait(0.5)
            engine.HingeConstraint.AngularVelocity = engine.HingeConstraint.AngularVelocity + 1
        end
    else
        switches.On.Transparency = 1
        switches.Off.Transparency = 0
        value = 0
        for Off = 1, 5 do
            wait(0.5)
            engine.HingeConstraint.AngularVelocity = engine.HingeConstraint.AngularVelocity - 1
        end
    end 
end)

PS - (i moved it from line 6 to line 4 that's the difference because line 4 is not inside the function whereas line 6 is!)
