Edittime questions

  • Theres a few things i'd like to know about the edittime.

    1. is there a way to find the current scroll/view position in edittime

    2. how do you refer to the position/angle of an instance (im averaging the corners of the bounding quad atm, but there must be some direct way to refer to the position/angle of an object to lets say draw stuff in the editor without needing to find it from the quad)

    3. Is there any file i can look at to find information on available edittime functions/properties? or is it all hard-coded into the exe, the sdk documentation is pretty lacking.

  • Using this:

    function dir(object)
        methods = [];
        for (z in object) {
        return methods.join(', ');
    I was able to see all the members of cr, instance and renderer.

    1. Not that I could find.  Possibly there may be another global namespace, but since there isn't any plugins that use such a  thing it probably doesn't exist.
    2. Looks like there's a setPosition() but no getPosition(), so I guess averaging the corners it the only way currently.  There is a getAngle() though.
    3. See list above, other than that the following js files are used at edittime:
    Other than that you possibly could open C2 in a hex editor and find a list of js names, but I don't imagine you'd find many more.
