Variable comments

New releases and general discussions.

Post » Wed Jan 21, 2009 4:56 am

I'd like to request a feature for inserting comments into the add\edit window for variables. When I come back to a system that I haven't used in awhile, I have to track down variables to figure out what I used them for. Especially for bigger games, it would be nice to have a note right next to the variable.

Are you giving them appropriate names? :P I usually find well-named variables don't need any notes...

I like the idea of being able to give more things descriptions. Objects, layouts, variables.. why not?

It would come in handy every once in a while, I think. It wouldn't even have to be anything more than a blank text box that does nothing but save what you type in it.

Or if you want get fancy, objects could have a "notes" button that, when clicked, pops up a little note window. And the button could highlight if there's a note present. And James Earl Jones could come by your house and read them out loud for you.

Okay, maybe not that last part.

Maybe we could just get his voice built in to the Text to Speech object
