Okay, so far I've been able to use the layout function successfully. I have been able to integrate it into my game, where you talk to some random blokes and have the opportunity to play a minigame like 'guess the number' or 'target shooting' (to raise money to enter a tournament).
No errors and all works well so far. The only thing that's a letdown is the Layouts Object is too bare and unfortunately seems to be ignored. It's lacking some very simple features, such as changing the layout it displays in real-time through the events sheet. I tried doing so through Python, but failed... what I'm doing now is creating a new object for each layout I want to display, which isn't very efficient at all.
A really great tool which has so much potential. Now that I've experienced its capabilities, I may have to use it for my in-game menu.
I'm just wondering, do the creators make the code available for such objects? I doubt I can do much anyway since it'd probably be coded in C++...
