So it's been quite a while since I've used the Advanced Editor, and looking through B&P, it seems like there's some bugs. I'm a bit afraid to touch the code... especially without some tests. And that's what I'm hoping from you guys.
I'd like to make a Storygame that will have the sole purpose of testing both the advanced editor and the storygame engine. It should both feature working and broken things (like the infamous $ITEMSTATE bug, which was a bit confusing to me). This may require some multiple storygames, i dunno.
But this storygame will allow me to debug, fix, and extend advanced features without having to worry about breaking critical functionalities. I'm hoping you guys (who, truth be told, know more about the adveditor than me) will be able to identify what needs to be tested. Things like scripting, variables, I dunno.
What do you guys think? Does this make sense?
Yes it makes sense. If I may suggest a member to help you out Ziakra is a really good scripter on the site on par with October or JJJ
Cool, so what do you think... should I start a game and look for Co-authors... or?
Makes sense. Start a storygame and use some of the basic fucntions that you know work, then add some people like cool suggested, who know the bugs and have them add them to the storygame to show you them.
What you should do is make a storygame and add October and Zikara as co-authors (and pop them PMs). I'm not aware of any bugs in the editor that affect me, but both of them have found them before. I'd say, you should let them demonstrate where the bugs are and then go about fixing them. No guesswork.
I wouldn't mind helping with this. I think I'd have to play around a lot before I'd start remembering the bugs I used to run into, as I've been gone for a while.
