Why not finish MENU object...its so basic - Scirra Forums

Why not finish MENU object...its so basic

New releases and general discussions.

Post » Mon Jan 04, 2010 3:15 pm

I know you've more then likely touched on this topic more then a handful of times but why is getting the Menu object such a low priority...I've been using Construct for a very long time and keep hoping with each new version that the Menu is going to be implimented...disappointment again.

There it is...System-->Menu Item Clicked....but "Invalid System Condition Referenced" darn it.

I realize I can easily make menu structures with sprites and layouts etc. but a quick windows-type menu system will speed up delevopement of many of my non-game projects.

Seems to me creating quick menus would be at the top of the list.

Anyway I love Construct and find it amazingly useful....thanks all that contribute.

I keep asking myself why don't they just finish what they start?

You put in the Menu Editor and reference it in SYSTEM ... have you just forgoten?

I appreciate everything you do but really MENU is a basic thing and should have been

one of the first things Construct could provide with a few click... we are still waiting.

:D :) :( :o :shock: :mrgreen:

you made another post about this here

viewtopic.php?f=3&t=5428
please don't post multiple times about the same subject, as you clutter the forums. You won't get faster replies doing this.

I dont consider any posts clutter....sorry you feel differently...if I post same thing multiple times too bad. I see many "CLUTTER" posts about nothing all the time...all posts could be eliminated if the developers had their act together and just documented their work correctly in the first place. :twisted:

Telling people they posted multiple time could also be considered clutter...like I need someone to tell me what to do...take a hike.

I consider it clutter, too
also, if you have several comments/suggestions, or related help questions, it's probably a good idea to put them in one larger thread. Even if you don't mind being the guy who has 5 posts pushing everyone's posts further from the forefront. You'll find you'll get more response.

as for why the menu object is such a low priority
it's because construct is a game creator, that has some application creation abilities
completing the game related aspects of it is naturally the higher priority

while it's probably a good best practice to document features as you create them.
this is a free program created by developers in their free time.
as someone who's created some poorly documented plugins myself. I realize that in practice, you finish what you can, when you can. It would make no sense for developers to spend large amounts of time documenting something, when some of the documentation will have to be changed in future versions. I'd rather they race toward 1.0, and let the more than capable community add to the wiki. There hasn't been an overwhelming flood of wiki contributors.
But perhaps one of the newer members of the community will see a need there, and fill it. There's also sdk documentation on the wiki, so you can create and document a complete and functional menu plugin if you so wished.
