The second variation in the tutorial you can absolutely turn around midstairs.even if it's nice, you cannot go back midway though, you can event that
out, but would be tedious, but usefull if you fully event it.
if the stairs is 20 tiles long and you forgot something, you cannot go
back instantly which would be time consuming, I wont suggest it if it's
longer than 5 tiles though.
I use a plugin which is a region/tile based, so you can go back instantly
from start or midway, so it doesn't move automatically.
but it's still a usefull tutorial, even if it's done by serveral peoples
You do have a point, though I'll admit that I like her putting all the calls in it because I knew there was a call for it and was always too lazy to look it up , so it helps more experienced users too.Very nice. The only thing I'd change is make version 2 less efficient. Use the Get Location Info event command to store the region ID in a variable, then reference that.
The people who most need this kind of tutorial need to know what can be done in-engine without having to learn code for script calls.
Sure, that can be a thing - but as you point out, that's laziness A sufficiently experienced/knowledgeable user knows there's a script call for anything the engine does natively, and can look it up via Google or the forum threads with function lists (if it matters enough to them).I knew there was a call for it and was always too lazy to look it up , so it helps more experienced users too.
