Hey all, is it possible to spawn objects and have actions occur outside of the active layout that the game is in? I'll keep searching and update if I find the answer. thanks!

Yes.. and no. You can link event sheets so they can be used in multiple layouts.
Only one layout will be "running" at a time though. You can "track" the changes to the other layouts via global variables and then update the other layouts when they are in focus...

ahhh I see, excellent, thank you both. I think one of my main issues was local variables rather than globals, derp, linking the Events will help in the other area I'm testing though. thanks!
