This is going to be difficult to explain, but I will do my best: I'm having trouble understanding event sheets.
it all began when I asked for help with positioning my player sprite correctly during a layout change:
User LittleStain blessed me with a capx file that should have cleared it all up:https://www.dropbox.com/s/19ghhao7ql03au5/LayoutChangePosition.capx?dl=0
I copied LittleStain's events TO THE T in a new project and could NOT get it to work. Let me be clear: When I ran LittleStain's program, it worked. When I ran my own, carefully-copied program, it did not work. It took me DAYS of wracking my brain on how my program could have a bug when I copied every step PERFECTLY until I realized that LittleStain used 2 separate event sheets. I, however, had combined everything onto one event sheet.
Then I did a little experiment. I altered LittleStain's program by combining all the events onto one event sheet. The program ceased to function effectively. Then I went to my program and separated it between two event sheets, and included them both in a third, Main Event Sheet and ran the program using the Main one. The program did not function effectively. Then, on the Main sheet, I rearranged the order from:Include Event Sheet 1
Include Event Sheet 2
to:Include Event Sheet 2
Include Event Sheet 1
and it ceased to function, but in a totally different way than before.
The problem is, with the main game I am creating, I have like 6 event sheets (so far) all included on a Main Event Sheet that I run the program from. I learned to do it this way from a tutorial I watched, because of saving RAM or something. No doubt this has been causing some of the bugs in my game that I haven't figured out yet, but what should I do? I seems that running the program from 6+ event sheets will be unorganized and confusing, and I really don't like the idea of having a new event sheet for every level that I create. What if I have 50 levels? That's 50 event sheets, plus the sheets I have for the player, each enemy, items, the HUD, pickups, etc.!
Can someone please educate me about how to get multiple event sheets to work in harmony?
