.EXE Maker object would be AMAZING (anyone?)

  • Oh I thought that maybe the programmers are magical enough to do the undoable ... I really dont undstand a heck of alot about the deep down workings of the machines inner workings. But do you know why they cant make it so a person can make a program that makes an exe?

  • I don't know... quantum physics?

    I really have no idea, but I imagine it would be a pretty complex and time consuming thing to do, and it's not like there's a lot of need for it. You're the only person who as ever expressed any interest in this feature.

    Anyway they said no. Since it's not gonna happen I don't see the point in drawing this out any more so I'm going to have to summon the bacon fairy...

    It's not only just that it's technically hard to to - it's that nobody's said how it should be done. Would you write a special kind of event that also specifies how an exported EXE should work? If so what would that look like and how would it work? Or would it attach data to the EXE like my earlier idea? Or something else?

    You may not understand how computers work, but we're not mind readers either. If someone suggests a very complex system without explaining how it would actually work, how are we meant to implement it? If we were unwise enough to try and do it anyway without a proper idea of what it is we're making, then we might also end up making something that you didn't want, because you never said exactly how it should work, just what the end result is!

    We get this with a lot of feature requests. Things like "Wouldn't it be cool if you could create dynamic events?". Well, what does that mean? How should it work? What are the benefits over existing methods? In the software business people write pages and pages of detailed specifications for new features before even writing a line of code, so it's clear how it should work. As you can imagine, a simple "I want something that does blah" statement is quite far away from that...
