Adding message notes back into the tutorial

  • Feb 28, 2013
This week I worked on coding up adding message notes back to the tutorial. I've made a lot of progress. I now am able to have complete steps that are just notes and no steps! However, there is a gotcha... once a message note shows you can't finish the rest of the tutorial. In this case the tutorial system gets stuck thinking that it needs to recover. This is due to a limitation of the original automatically generated tutorials which are solely based on transactions. This won't be easy to fake, hack, or work-around, but I'm currently in the process of trying to make a message transaction that will let the tutorial move forward. I think this should work, but if it doesn't This will probably take a couple of days to get all this working because of how tightly coupled the tutorials are to transactions. I'm trying to see if I can get this done much faster by using aspects in the tutorial. So far, I think this approach is too complicated to work with our current code, especially considering the poor shape of the tutorial presentation code.
