I don't get your opening post.

What is in the spoilers?

the first spoiler has the variable declaration and initiation, the second attempts to jump to to a different scene. essentially im trying to impliment a basic history system in the project, with the first frame of some scenes setting this variable so they can jump back to that scene from elsewhere.
