    Description of Capx

    Nothing related to the game I'm working on...

    As described, I try to create a local or global variable and set it to Boolean, but the option isn't there.

    Steps to Reproduce Bug

    • Right-click to open an option dialogue window in the event windows (either in the open space or in a Group or nested Event line).
    • Add a local/global variable
    • Select Type for the variable and notice that the Boolean option isn't present.

    Observed Result

    No Boolean option available.

    Expected Result

    For a Boolean option to be present.

  • Um, I don't think we ever had a global Boolean.

  • Yeah, i got r173 and i don't have global boolean too, and i don't remember that i ever had it.

  • *sincerely dumbfounded* Really? I could have sworn......

    Odd that I've never noticed until now.

    Okay...speaking from my utter ignorance, why wouldn't there be a global Boolean? I mean, would it be redundant? Somehow break the system? Something else that completely evades me?

  • No really great reason really other than globals are the same across the whole game, and could possibly be an issue to security since you cant obfuscate a string.

    Then again you can use text as a Boolean anyway, so its really just the difference between potato, and potato.

  • Good point. Okay. Well...everyone move along. Nothing to see here!

  • Rhindon - There's no global booleans in C2, use global numbers instead and use 0 as false and 1 as true.

  • Tetriser - Yeah, that's the conclusion I've been made aware of. I just never realized it before...go figure that I've never tried to use a global Boolean until now. LOL

  • This is a feature oversight: it exists for instance variables but not globals. It's on the todo list.

  • Ashley - AH! Sweet deal. Thank you, Ashley.

    On a totally side note, I was just wondering if there are any plans to add new features to the animation/drawing editor? I'm simply curious. Well, that and the fact that I'm a lone developer and NOT an artist. LOL
