    It seems people are interested so as soon as this gets its first bug free release I will start porting it.

    New version released with the same link as in the first post:
    -The global values defined at edittime are now transferred to the runtime (major derp on my part)
    -The global values at runtime are not reset across frame changes and object destroying
    -The menu typos have been fixed

    EDIT: I incremented the version number and reuploaded.

    Thanks, this object seems like it will be great but i can't seem to get values back with expressions in a event either, i guess that is what Fanotherpg means also. I have not tested the new version yet though so hopefully it works now.

    By the way i have a few quick suggestions -

    1) Some way to get all stored global values and strings as a comma separated text list would be useful. It would be useful to be able to get a groups values and strings like this also. I am thinking this would be great for level editors etc.

    2) Don't use example values as default, if you make a mfa that should hopefully be simple but maybe this is planned already.

    3) It seems when you click the number or string dropdowns to maximize the full lists it hides the other types list, it would be nicer if it just remained open.

    Just tested the new version and getting the values with expressions works great now. Also adding to the above request/suggestions list...

    4) I was thinking since this seems like a really great way to set values and groups with a main string it would be nice if there was a way to set this with a action. So you could then link it with a string object etc which would be very useful, along with request 1) this would make Advanced Global Values Object the ultimate storage extension i think as you could easily link it with whatever you needed.

    Anyways thanks, this is a really useful object and hopefully you will like my suggestions also.

    How else should I get people to understand the syntax?

    I cannot change this, you will need to contact Yves/Francois about that to fix it in a future update to MMF2.

    Yeah, setting from a string will be there too. Just so you now I already have 1&4 done at adittime (this is how it both interprets and generates the list) so it should be simple for me to do it at runtime

    Ah ok no worries then, it's not really a problem but hopefully if they ever read this thread they could maybe allow this option sometime.

    I guess it's just my opinion really but when i add object i think they should be clear of content so you don't have to remove each time, you might want to add data via events for example but there would be additional content stored until you go into the properties menu. It's easy enough to delete i guess but i think a help doc showing the text format or a mfa with a included content example would maybe work better.

    I agree with Atom - no default values once this is out of beta. You could use the description, a help file, an example mfa etc to explain how to use it.

    Great extension - well done.
