variable not working when app is publisehd

I created an app. (which is a little game) There is no data being transferred from PowerApps to another source. I have variables set (both global and context variables.) I have a screen with images on one screen, if I select one it navigates to another screen. On the second screen is a question. I've placed a global variable to the Yes / No buttons to make the image from the first screen not hide if selected.  When I preview the app all works perfectly. I reset all the variables and saved, published then shared the app. Now when I tried to play the game, all the images are hidden. Is there a step I am missing?

Re: variable not working when app is publisehd

Hi @Lisea123 ,

Do you mean that the images that are related to variables are hidden?

Could you show me the formulas about the variables and images?

Please note: the updatacontext is only valid in the current screen. It will be updatacontext when the screen navigate to another. You could pass it by using the Navigate function.

Here's a doc about it for your reference:

Re: variable not working when app is publisehd

on the button of screen 2 I've done OnSelect - set(Bag1View,false) and on the bag of screen 1, I've done Visible - Bag1view
It works perfectly when I preview the app but when I share and use the link to play the app all the bags on the screen are hidden.  
Also, I would like the app to keep the last variable result as the game will be played once a day for several days and if they've already selected a bag, then I don't want that bag to show on the next day when they open the app and play again.
