Enable event code to be reloaded while a game is running. Performing a reload is done by right-clicking an event block in Design Mode and clicking "Reload Code" from the menu.

This will only work for events that were included when the game was compiled. Because we strip out events with no blocks in them, this also means that events must have at least one block inside them at the time they're compiled in order to be reloadable.

Attributes are also currently not reloaded. Adding an attribute, placing it in an event, and then reloading the event will cause an error.

All events should support this feature. Likewise, all blocks in the Stencyl palette should work with this feature. Any events or blocks that don't work can be considered a bug and should be reported. Code blocks may work, but there's no guarantee.

This feature is currently available to subscribers for testing. For the download link and more information, see the forum topic.
