What would you like to see in the debugger

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Thu Aug 08, 2013 4:37 pm

Hello everyone ,

Not a long ago , the debugger went live (r140)

It's better than what I thought and pretty darn nice to have , but is lacking features , and I want to make a list of those missing features to make Ashley's job easier + to get it at our expectations

So without any further waiting , What would you want to add to the debugger

My list :
- For now , Ctrl+F5 seems broken on Chrome ( Is it happening for you guys ? ) , @Ashley may need to fix it on the next release
- No way to see global variables and local variables for now , I doubt it won't be added in the near future
- I wouldn't mind a small console where we can log some messages , and that would be greatly appreciated
- Arrays should display as a table , for it to be easier to display and more intuitive

Cheers !

Might add some actions like "break point" to stop running under some special conditions(event).

I second the array table idea, that would be fantastic.

I'd just like it to remember where it was the last time I used it. Every time I debug I make it a separate window, move my browser over, resize the debugger, track down the last object I was on, etc.

It's also kinda difficult to find the object I'm looking for.MadFactory2013-08-13 18:44:30

A checklist for black screen fixes: i.e.:
1.- have you tried this
2.- have you tried this other thing
3.- etc.

ability to filter what you are seeing. With large projects it is a mission to find the object that you want to look at. Be great if you could filer so that only thse named objects are listed.

This probably isn't possible, but a rewind feature would be amazing :). Just throwing out wishes here ;).ArcadEd2013-08-14 03:44:19
