[QUOTE=alspal] Construct is better designed than MMF2 in so many ways. Subevents, for each loops, changing display resolution at runtime, better zooming, better bilinear support, better alpha channel support, event sheets can be included within another sheet, you can "read" events you're not just looking at check boxes, that's just some off the top of my head.[/QUOTE]
Yeah, MMF2's clunky old event system is the one reason I just can't stick with it. I understand it, I just hate it, and I'd bet that this alone is the biggest roadblock to new users getting into and sticking with it.
When Construct was built, the devs here had the right idea; create an event system that can be read and interpreted at-a-glance. It just makes perfect practical sense and should be--in my opinion--the standard for this type of dev tool. The other approaches (checkboxes, building blocks, pull-down menus) all look good visually, but in practice they lack that conversational-style translation that gives your events a smooth, organized flow.
