Is it possible to print out the event sheet? I want to take a look at them on paper.keroberos2013-12-25 16:40:19

A pdf export of the event sheet in pdf format would be interesting for educational reasons or when planning the game mechanics without using the whole capx file. You could also just work around and do screenshots of the event sheet to make similar result.
It would be a interesting feature but personally I don't think its necessary for a game engine like c2. Perhaps making a plugin of that would be doable by a skilled coder

If the project is saved as the opposite of CapX (Forgot the name).
You can find the event sheets save as .XML in one of the folders,
that could be printed.

Why cant you just open the xml files in the caproj in an editor and print from there?

@SgtConti

Unless I misunderstood something, you mean printing the XML File? Because I find that the XML File itself is not very convenient for learning purpose (It is kinda confusing compared to the event blocks themselves)

@Aphrodite , I'm sure for learning c2 its not very good.
But for learning what is going on behind the software, it surely is perfect.
First time I opened and saw it,
I was sure where I was in the event sheet,
I understood most of it,
maybe its just because of my Coding skills I have, I dunno ;)SgtConti2013-12-26 15:35:33

Print xml files instead? That would be like printing out assembly code of compiled programs when you actually have source code right in front of you.

Found a program here:

That takes a screenshot of a scrolling window. I tested it and it works well with event sheets.

@R0J0hound : I think that is perfect (don't know why I didn't though of this kind of programs before >.<), Thanks a lot.

purely awesome R0J0hound! This software should be mentioned in the tools section if it isn't already there :)
