Variables still show even when deleted?

Postby Danny » Wed Oct 21, 2015 5:31 pm

Okay this is confusing. I had some variables at one point but decided to delete them (Global Variables) but when i use a varilable operation they still show in the list even though i deleted them. I even closed 001 down and opened it again but they still show. I'm 100% sure i deleted them. The image below shows the 4 variables inside the red box.

Is this normal?

Can you try creating a brand new variable, then deleting it and seeing if they show up in the Variables list? If they do, send a bug report and I can look into it.

Otherwise, make sure you don't have any Local Variables/Parameter Variables that share the same names - as these might be what they are.

Parameter Variables


The culprit. I was not aware that Parameter variables showed in the Global Varilables list when using a Variable operation branch. I just only though you could call them via the use value. :?

That isn't a list specifically for Global Variables. The Variable Operation event will list all of your Global, Local (if applicable) and Parameter Variables (if applicable/inside a Custom Event). I believe it also lists Switches as well but I could be wrong about that.
