Not a computer guy and have what is likely a really stupid question. While in the editor, some event descriptions include "Debug". What does this mean? My guess is that something once was or still is wrong with the event. Appreciate any clarification.

Normaly, Event strings are displayed in-game when the Event is triggered. However, if you prefix the message with "debug", it won't display. So, such messages are only used by the scenario designer to remind him what the event was about - like a comment in computer code.

I never knew that. Thanks for the reveal. I'll start using this feature right away. It's a very good thing.
