Touch Function going crazy?

Asked by

Hello, i'm trying to make some kind of hitbox to use as a zone in a kind of Capture the zone game and when i touch it it works as expected but when i leave it it dont, when i touch it, it should add +1 to the "Hero" or "villain" value and when i leave it should negate -1 to it but what happen is it negate like -40 at once. (i left some notes bellow)

script.Parent.Touched:connect(function(hit)
    local hero = script.Parent.Hero --this is a number value
    local villain = script.Parent.Villain --^
    if hit.Name == "Torso" then
        local plr = game.Players:GetPlayerFromCharacter(hit.Parent)
        if plr then
            local side = game.Lighting.Players:FindFirstChild(plr.Name).Side -- this is a string value
            if side.Value == "Hero" then
                hero.Value = hero.Value+1
            elseif side.Value == "Villain" then
                villain.Value = villain.Value+1
            end
            script.Parent.TouchEnded:connect(function()
            local side = game.Lighting.Players:FindFirstChild(plr.Name).Side
            if side.Value == "Hero" then
                hero.Value = hero.Value-1
            elseif side.Value == "Villain" then
                villain.Value = villain.Value-1
            end
            end)
        end
    end
end)

You can add a Debounce to your script to prevent unnecessary firing of events.

local db = false; --It is off

script.Parent.Touched:connect(function(hit)
    if not db then --if it is off
        db = true; --turn it on, and continue w/ code
        local hero = script.Parent.Hero
        local villain = script.Parent.Villain
        if hit.Name == "Torso" then
            local plr = game.Players:GetPlayerFromCharacter(hit.Parent)
            if plr then
                local side = game.Lighting.Players:FindFirstChild(plr.Name).Side
                if side.Value == "Hero" then
                    hero.Value = hero.Value+1
                elseif side.Value == "Villain" then
                    villain.Value = villain.Value+1
                end
                script.Parent.TouchEnded:connect(function()
                    if db then --If it is on(like it should be if touched)
                        local side = game.Lighting.Players:FindFirstChild(plr.Name).Side
                        if side.Value == "Hero" then
                            hero.Value = hero.Value-1
                        elseif side.Value == "Villain" then
                            villain.Value = villain.Value-1
                        end
                        db = false; --Turn back off 
                    end
                end)
            end
        end
    end
