    Sure - I am editing my Actor called "SCORE," which I use to display the value of the actual integer I made called "scorey" represents (which is currently 0), but I can't do this without the Attribute Editor. Right now it literally just displays the word "score" because its not referring to the integer I created in my scene, but rather the string I typed in the actor's display text box itself. (I have even tried typing game.scorey in the box and still nothing.)

    you using windows? i think when i was using windows it did not have an expression editor, but i think i recall them saying they are adding it soon

    Yes I'm using Windows. Your probably right because I've looked everywhere.

    Whats weird is that the downloadable game templates they offer have expression EDITED attributes and variable names. I tried copy and pasting some things but that didn't work either - very frustrating.

    Yeah I emailed support so hopefully they will let me know whats going on. And yeah gsrockz - I think I'll look into that. The Windows version of this is just not cutting it compare to what I've seen on the Mac version. At least I'll be ready to dominate the new layout when I get it.

    It's only legal if that virtual is running on a Mac server. Apple does not want their software running on someone else's hardware under any circumstances.

    It's easy to do, but it's not really legal.
