    QR Codes

    by MariaAMartin » Sun Nov 20, 2016 1:44 pm

    Hello. We are students in Rich Halverson's Tech class at UW Madison. Last Thursday, some of the engineers from ARIS came and helped us add QR codes to our game. We followed the directions and were unable to replicate what we created on Thursday night. However, our QR codes are not showing up? Everything is saved and we have locks on the QR codes. In our conversations we also added a lock that has an Action to EXIT TO TAB and SCANNER. We also have direction in our scanner prompt. Again, we followed the directions we were given on Thursday night, but our QR codes are not showing up (other than the one we created on Thursday with help). Thanks! -Maria and Leanne

    Happy to try and help troubleshoot this. Can you explain a bit more what you mean by "QR codes not showing up"? Do you mean that when the player enters the code or scans the image they get an error message instead of being taken to the appropriate object?

    I would go slowly in trying to hunt this problem down since it is nested within a few things. Try to make a naked QR code work first: Make a plaque, create a qr code for it and try to have it scan successfully. Then try adding a lock. If all goes well, try sending the player to the scanner. A problem could be in any of these places.

    If I had to guess, it would be that the lock is locked.
