Easy-access pre-written commands
« on: August 27, 2019, 11:17:18 PM »
Do you ever use commands that take forever to write? Do you use the same commands a lot? Well, there is a trick to easily call a list of commands...Easy.
Step #1. Go to Game Setup. You can do this by pressing P from any editor, or clicking on the menu button beneath the test button. Go to timelines.
Step #2. Create a new timeline and set the position to 0:0.1
Step #3. Enter your commands
The next time you need these same commands pulled up, just type in timeline = (ID). The (ID) just means whatever the ID is. Find out about ID's here: https://www.theplatformbuilder.com/Command-Prompt/#FindingID

You can use 0:0.1 or sometimes will work with 0:0.0
Sorry because my English is not very good because I'm Spanish ;) :P

Oh, and I credit Antikore for this idea. Project GB gave me the inspiration. I noticed Antikore used this same formula many times in GB.
