    Range of an Alterable Value

    I did some testing and I found the range of an alterable value, both at edit time and runtime: -2147483648 to 2147483647 as an integer.

    I'm not sure if this helps anyone but I guess it might I will do more testing to try and find the range of a float (eek!)

    EDIT: I didn't find the limit yet but I did find that if it goes out of range or whatever, positive out of range is 1.#INF and genative out of range is -1.#IND (instead of INF?)

    Re: Range of an Alterable Value

    Alterable values are stored as double-precision floating point (when they aren't stored as integers), which has a range of +/- 1.7976931348623157 x 10308, with approximately 16 decimal digits of precision.
    Some things with expressions only use single-precision floating point (e.g. all extensions) so only have a range of +/- 3.4028234 × 1038 with approx. 7 digits of precision.

    Re: Range of an Alterable Value

    What would be the limit on length of an alterable string?

    There shouldn't be any length limit for strings.

    I have also discovered that the range for the Speed/Deceleration/Acceleration values in the built-in movements are 0 to 65535 (unsigned short). I was able to test this thanks to the limit bug

    I assumed that was the case. However, is there a limit to the number of Paragraphs?

    Unfortunately there is an edit-time alterable string size limit; which cost me the last 20-event competition !!! (couldn't fit all the data my game needed)

    Re: Range of an Alterable Value

    If your talking about two new-line characters, then no; forgoing the edit-time character limit, there is no reason why the number of paragraphs would be a limiting factor

    ElseIf your talking about the number of paragraphs the string object supports... i gave up ,but More then 100

    Re: Range of an Alterable Value

    Does this really qualify as an article? Just an observation
