Multiple letter variable names?
« on: September 02, 2011, 11:33:40 am »
Every time I've tried using multiple letter variable names (for things other than arrays, pictures, etc) something strange happens, such as the value not being initialized, or being "saved" for the next run (I imagine this is because it is reading from the same point as the previous execution, and since it isn't being initialized, its value is unchanged). Other times it just doesn't work. Are multi-letter variable names supported yet, or will it be supported in the future? Thanks.

Try updating your axe version. You probabely have a version in which it isn't supported yet. 1.0.3 supports it, and i think the mayor bugs of 1.0.0-1.0.2 are solved in that version.
My projects
 - The Lost Survivors (Unreal Engine) ACTIVE [GameCommandoSquad main project]
 - Oxo, with single-calc multiplayer and AI (axe) RELEASED (screenshot) (topic)
 - An android version of oxo (java)  ACTIVE
 - A 3D collision detection library (axe) RELEASED! (topic)(screenshot)(more recent screenshot)(screenshot of it being used in a tilemapper)
Spoiler For inactive:
- A first person shooter with a polygon-based 3d engine. (z80, will probably be recoded in axe using GLib) ON HOLD (screenshot)
 - A java MORPG. (pc) DEEP COMA(read more)(screenshot)
 - a minecraft game in axe DEAD (source code available)
 - a 3D racing game (axe) ON HOLD (outdated screenshot of asm version)

Oh, sorry, I forgot to mention I was using version 0.5.3... I thought that the latest version was unstable, but from what you said, it seems that I need to upgrade or lose my mind keeping track of single letter variables. :P

Yup. 1.0.0 and 1.0.1 were unstable, 1.0.2 is stable, but the Variable names aren't perfect, and 1.0.3 is AMAZING.

Welcome to the forums mathewv by the way :)

I did not hear about horrific bugs in 1.0.3, so I guess it might be stable enough, although maybe not as much as 0.5.3.
