Well, have fun. I might develop it more in the future.

Here are some notes in case I do develop more.

I've got the latest version of Stencyl installed and the extension installed (and showing; I told it I like chocolate [I lied]) but while I have a game open it doesn't do anything. Am I missing a prerequisite?

Edit: Oh, I'm running Java 7 right now - maybe that?

If people are interested I'll update it. What would you like to see in it?

The things mentioned in your Google doc sound pretty good.

But something I was expecting for some reason when I first tried it out was that when you created a box that represented a scene, I thought the scene would be generated automatically with the size and everything. It doesn't matter how the scenes link together in-game, people will come up with their own methods.

Also, adding lines, dots, icons, etc would be rather handy.

What you have here is an incredibly simple and useful tool that it seems like so many people are already using. I for one, would love to see at least one more update.

Thanks for listening, and thanks for making the extension.

Oh, i just noticed that if I have a large grid, I can't scroll left or right, only up or down. :/

lol that's dumb. I don't really have time to update much else, but I can at least put out a fix for that. I'll try to do it today.

It's so much better now! You're a true gentleman for listening.

Sorry to bother you when you're so busy. Though would you consider handing off the extension to someone able to actively maintain it or update it according to your wishes? I couldn't do it, I lack the java skills, but I'm sure someone else around here could.

If anybody wanted to, I'd be glad to hand them the source.

It doesn't seem to be working when I open a project with existing data for the extension. That's a little weird but for the time being I reverted back to the old version.  :(

I hadn't realized how many extensions and things you've been working on. Also I read somewhere you attend school so that keeps you really busy as it is. Sorry to have bothered you so much with this. This extensions feels like a Snickers candy bar without the peanuts, ya know?
