Reversed Auto Meter Bug?

#1 Post by Mello-Knight » Sat Jul 28, 2018 4:44 pm

Our auto meter is flipped and we're not sure how to correct it. When it's "empty" or to the left, the auto speed is fast. When it's "full" or to the right it's slow. Cute if it's April Fool's, not cute otherwise. No idea how to fix it...any ideas?

If you have altered the FieldValue, try adding max_is_zero=True to the attributes. If it is not that, perhaps show your code so we can try to help.

That's actually normal behavior for the auto forward bar iirc. It's because the bar values correspond to the "auto forward time," which is how long the text waits before moving forward. So lower values are shorter wait times, and higher values are longer wait times.

You can flip it around by using "bar_invert True":

Hope that helps!
