    Two Amazing Questions

    Okay, so maybe they're not amazing, but I have two inquiries that I would appreciate answers to.

    1) How long can an event, or the actions list an event triggers be? The longest event I've ever had was about 13 conditions long. How extensive can an event or actions be before any undesirable effects happen? (i.e. Slowdown)

    2) Is there any tool available in MMF2 that can store something like switches? What I'm looking for is sort of a "Global Flags" idea, except able to store huge amounts (hundreds) of flags that can be saved and loaded. I know an array can store many values, but simple switch-like functions would be nice.

    So there they are. Anyone who answers these is even more amazing than the questions themselves. :cool:

    I think (but don't know) that there may be a limit of 256 conditions/actions per event... but if you get up to anywhere near this amount you may want to reconsider how you're doing things for convenience's sake anyway.

    For the idea of global flags... well, there are any number of data storage extensions (like the array) that you could use, but I don't know of any that specifically limit you to flags. The one I'm currently using is the Named Variable Object, which stores values or strings under variable names. The right tool depends on exactly what you're doing with the flags and how you ideally want to access them.

    Re: Two Amazing Questions

    How can anyone even have 256 actions on one event? Unless they're writing a million values to an array... Which I might end up doing. =P

    The thing I'm trying to use the "Global flag" idea for is objectives in a long platformer game I'm making. There will be probably over a hundred missions spread over the game in different levels. Since it would seem wasteful to use an entire layer of an array for simple things like: "Value equals "1" --> Objective is completed", I was trying to find another, less complicated way of doing it.

    Anyway, thanks for your reply.
