Event search or monitor
« on: January 16, 2018, 12:24:15 PM »
Hi,
My game is getting bigger every day but my brains remains small ;-)
So i sometimes get lost in all the Global-Event sent from one FSM to an other.
Is there a way to :
- search in all the FSM if there is a "send event" Action for one of my Global-Event ?
- Monitor all the Events sent during playtime ?
Thanks  :-)

This is brilliant ;D
Something I would like to quote in the future :D


Use Get Event Info action and set Sent By value, use this action as very first in the state that receive the global event.

There are also a few new features in the new 1.8.7 update.

The Used count in the Events Manager now includes actions that send the event.
If you right-click on the Event you get 2 sub menus: Sent By and Received By.

Also in Preferences > Graph View enable Show Send Events Icons on States.
This will show a little event icon on states that send events.
Click the icon to get a menu showing the events sent.
This is an experimental new feature so please post your experience with it!

Also, in the Fsm Log Window you can click an Event log entry to select the action that sent it: https://hutonggames.fogbugz.com/f/page?W28

We're working on more overview tools to help manage larger projects. Please post any ideas along those lines :) Mockups or examples from other tools would be great! Thanks!! :)
