Having actor appear when touching occurs - 201, Lesson 8 Flip on Your Own

This is the “side scroller” game at the end of Lesson 8. A student would like an actor to appear when touched, but it does not work Here is the coding:

It works when we change the coding to “play sound” or “say” when touching spaceman occurs - but does not “show.”

Any help would be appreciated.

Then “touching (actor)” code block works by detecting if any of the Actors pixels are intersecting, but a hidden Actor has no pixels.

You might try detecting with these code blocks instead:

Increase or decrease the number in the code block to make it easier to detect the spaceman or harder.
