DEV notes included?

April 8th 2018, 04:07 PM
I just want to know if people want a copy of my dev notes from building this project included in the final project ....

i am using noble note so i think there in html ..

i ask, because i use messed up shorthand in notes to my self .... if people want the dev notes, I'll need to expand them out, so other can read them effectively.

this is a bit preemptive .. but thought i would ask now

By all means, include the dev notes in html (after you clean them up a bit so others can read them?) in your final .dmod file!

We are always learning from each other.

Agreed. It can be very useful and interesting reading what goes through peoples' heads when they are creating something.

I vote yes, even if only a few people will read it it's nice for those that do

I always find them an interesting read plus useful tidbits can sometimes be found there which might not be mentioned elsewhere, eg this from Dan's journal in Revolution:

"I fixed the issue where sprites were getting hit, even though the player
wasn't hitting them. Turns out that killing a script associated with a sprite
doesn't necessarily kill the reference to the script, which means that hitting
the sprite can cause the script it is referencing (a completely different
script) to be called."
