(re: LSL Chat Area – Picture Header) Brandon:
There are LOTS of bugs in the editor. I have a major new release of the editor that should go live sometime in the next two weeks. It solves everything you mentioned. It’s on a beta server now if you want to play with it. Just let me know and I’ll send you the URL for the beta server and activate you on the server.
Sorry about the bugs – the editor is the only major piece of code in this product that I didn’t write. Unfortunately, the company whose editor I’m using (Siteobjects.com) promised a new release a year ago, and I’ve been waiting ever since. I finally made the decision to go with a competitor of theirs, which has meant weeks of rewriting a lot of code that surrounds the editor.
Oh well… that’s the sort of stuff that makes this a fun hobby. If there was nothing to complain about, what fun would I have?
PS Just to let everyone know… On May 8th, Roberta and I start on a cross-Atlantic voyage on our boat. We’ll be at sea for about two months, and may or may not have internet connectivity. My hope is that this system will run with or without me, and that only my occasional comments will be lacking. That said – it is not impossible that something major will break and the system will disappear for a few days, or even (gasp) a week or two. Should this occur, don’t worry. I’ll find land sooner or later, and fix whatever went wrong — and, hopefully have something interesting to say about the trip. Of most interest to this website: Roberta is taking boxes of books that she calls “research.” She is in the very early stages of game design, and sees the time at sea as a chance to get some serious work done. I’ll report back as I learn more about what she is thinking….
