Title: Areas and Courses
Post by: Wizard Indie Games on December 16, 2020, 11:25:00 PM
This is probably a very stupid question, but what is the difference between an Area and a Course?

Are you speaking in the context of variables? If so, than an area is just one area in your game. A course, is a collection of areas that make up a stage. But a course could also just be one area, it just depends on what you define as a course. When you enter a command to "complete course" then the game knows that that's the end of the course.
