NSInteger values = 0 when touchesBegan is called

Chris1979Chris1979 Posts: 81Registered Users @
I´m passing two NSInteger values from one class, level.m to another class, GameScene.m.

Everything is working fine until the method TouchesBegan is called from GameScene.m, then the values, self.test1 and self.test2 go back to 0 again (or any other value that I decide to set in initWithSize).

I.e. the passed values are being overwritten by the values in initWithSize when TouchesBegan is called.

-(void)BlankPositionAtColumn:(NSInteger) blankY row:(NSInteger)blankX{
NSLog(@BlankPositionAtColumn: BlankX, BlankY: %d, %d, blankX, blankY);
self.gamescene = [[GameScene alloc] init];
[self.gamescene BlankPosition:blankY row:blankX];

@class Swap;

//If the scene recognizes that the user made a swipe, it will call this swipe handler block
