Quote Coloring

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Mon Feb 18, 2013 11:30 pm

I was thinking, it would be good to be able to color code quotes, so you can see what kind of messages they are.

like I would do:
Red - code Needs fixed here
Green - Comment
Yellow - Explanation etc.

Just an idea

You can't really put in broken code. Comments are in Yellow Blocks already and the comment is where the explanation goes...

Not as much a language/code IDE like visual studio... I can't think of a time where I have ever had an event that broke the game when it ran, so highlighting "bad" code in read doesn't make a lot of sense here. If you put something in a text box that you can't use it tells you and makes you correct it before it adds it to the event sheet.

I am not saying they are bad ideas, I just don't see them mapping as well to Construct as they do to Visual Studio...

It's about work in progress, i like this idea, it would be implement if is possible, sometimes we forget what were scheduled to change the code.

Just create one or more comments right at the beginning, each saying things like:
"FIX Event 10"
"ADD Bullet movement - event 37"
"TO-DO Export new PSD button"
"TO-DO Laundry day"

hope you get the ideasogen2013-02-19 06:03:28

Yup I get it, but I think it would be easier for an overall outlook if I could remind myself with color coding what I need to work on. Red would indicate to me that I need to work on a bit of code because it it unstable so far, and each would be different.
