My code is rather short, but I'll put it in a pastebin anyways.
I'm struggling to figure out what the problem here is.
I want to have a increase each time I press a button on the wall. I'm essentially building a combat minigame and want it to go to the next level each time I press the button, but whenever I press the button it just quits out entirely.
This is my code:
I put in some code to check what A is and what levels is, just to make sure I wasn't crazy, and for some reason, it outputs this:
7 (The value of "a")
3 (The value of "levels")

For the life of me, I can't figure out why it's outputting 7.

You probably need to pull redstone events somewhere as I think your code is responding to one button press multiple times.

You're manipulating 'a' in both the spawnThem function and startSimulation function - that *might* be why it's reaching 7 instead of being what you expect. You might want to use different variables in each function and see if that fixes the issue.

Also, using local variables might help: https://www.lua.org/pil/4.2.html
