Ashley [quote:3o0uf9js]For example you could use 10 static locals inside a group, when only just that group uses them, and they never appear anywhere else in the event system, and the variables themselves are close to where they are used. I think this is an under-used feature and would do a lot to solve the "global overload" problem.
Speaking from experience, from a non-programmer background noob,
It takes a few runs to figure out why using all global variables is a bad idea,
in fact it takes a few runs to figure out how to use things like groups and functions and local variables properly
its only when you start to understand and use these sort of features that you really begin to appreciate what you guys have achieved with Construct 2.
