Create System > Go to layout action and type LayoutNumber as a parameter for a layout number to go to. This should restart the current layout.
Yes, "restart layout" action would be great. How come it's not implemented yet?
Not sure. Seems like a really obvious feature to me ;o
I actually tried that, but that didn't completely reset the layout
For example, it left the scrolling untouched instead of it resetting to the upperleft part of the layout.
Also, it didn't reset the included event sheets. For example, when the character dies, I disable the control event group. When I "reset" (read: go to) this layout again, the platform behaviour does work, but the tweaked control events I made don't because the event group is still disabled. Even though I set it to be enabled on the start of the layout (or rather, I set it to not be disabled).
EDIT: Of course these things are easily fixed by making some events that enable the groups and scroll to the right position, but that's not the point.
