When creating new global or local variable there is no an option to create a variable of Boolean type!
I wonder why because now for checking true/false state I must use variables of Number type?
What C2 version you have, it's there. For locals only, but I'm not sure you could ever choose boolean for globals.
edit> Ah, I mixed up locals with instance variables
I have r68 version.
There is no Boolean type option for both global and local variables.
But interesting, you can choose Boolean for an instance variable of an object!
I would say this is in the wrong section. This section is for reporting actual bugs in the program, not missing features.
zenox98 is right, moved to Construct 2 general.
It's an oversight from when I made event variables - you can use an integer (0 or 1) for now which is an easy workaround though. Adding this is on the todo list.
I was going to post about this topic as well. I think that global booleans would be a good idea. Using an int can be problematic.
Also I should point out that you will probably need to have the global boolean down the road. Eventually you will need to have it in order to make more complex games.
Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.
Yes, I'm using 0 and 1 for now, but Boolean would be better for checking true/false state as mammoth said. Anyway thanks for fixing this in the next version!
Next time I will post these things in Construct 2 General.
While we are on the topic of booleans can we have a compare boolean like the compare variable.
If Boolean is true then....
If Boolean is false then....
I think this would be usefull
I'd like to remind you about the boolean variables. Please, with r119 they are still not there... and would be sooo nice to have them.
Still on the todo list.
Thanks Ashley! I also noticed that! However, using Number variables with 1 and 0 worked just fine.
Thank you for improving Construct 2 everyday!
+1 to jegcelorio
Numbers work just as well. The only issue is that sometimes you might accidentally set the wrong variable. Also if you have been using booleans for years it is a little weird. It's a low priority anyway but it would be nice to have :)
mammoth: Instead of setting numbers, try setting up two new global variables: "True" with a value of 1 and "False" with a value of 0. You can then just reference True and False through your code.
