Sounds easy, but I'm a bit stumped. What I'm doing is sort of like a voting system...

Say that I have 3 levels, and 3 players... right now I have the following:

Local Number Level1=0
Local Number Level2=0
Local Number Level3=0

Then it checks to see which player has selected which level, so lets assume that they have selected it like this:

Local Number Level1=0
Local Number Level2=2
Local Number Level3=1

How would I write an action sequence, that would let me know "Level2 is the greatest"?... and if there is a tie in 'first place', to randomly pick one? Perhaps not using Local Numbers would be an easier ways... thoughts?

This one might help -> example.capx

Click on the text objects below to vote, after you voted a few times for each level, click on the text above and get the result.

Thanks! The only catch is, there is no randomizing 'tied' votes... is that possible?

Hm, what do you mean by randomizing "tied votes"?
English is not my mother language, maybe you can rephrase what you've ment?

No problem, try doing this in your example:

Vote once for #1, once for #2, and once for #3.

Then click "Click me"

It says "Level 1 voted x1 times"

Level 2 and Level 3 both have 1 votes too... what I would like, is for it to pick one of the highest voted levels that have the same amount of votes. For example:

Levels with same amount of votes = 2, LevelPicked=(random (1,2))

...perhaps this is impossible. :) Maybe I'll just make this work.

Oh wow... so simple, but man... complicating at the same time. Makes total sense though; thanks so much. :)
