One way would be to store the state of the button somewhere that won’t be lost during a scene change. The most obvious choice is an AutoLoad script. So, something like:

  • Create an AutoLoadcontaining a variable representing the button’s state
  • Each time the button’s state changes, update the variable in the AutoLoad with the new state
  • After changing scenes, retrieve the latest state from the AutoLoad and set it on button
