    activate also item dragging in the main game options tab (cog icon"on the left side) 
     =)  

    ger:
    das muss in den Spieleinstellungen auch noch aktiviert sein. In dem button legat du nur fest welcher Befehl dann das dragging ausführen darf. 

    Grüße

    Quick note: I'm not sure why it was called dragging to begin with as it confused the hell out of me the first time I tried that option & found out that you don't actually left click an item, hold & drag it to wherever you want to drop it. Instead it set the item as the cursor on left button release, which kind of defeated the purpose of dragging to me.

    It's actually possible to create an actual hold & drag system, but it involves a bit of work to get it working as intended. If you do then my recommendation would be to create commands for each of your items & unique cursors for each item, then you would use the mouse holding & released actions under the mouse properties tab to set the current item based on which item is currently underneath the cursor, providing an item is underneath the cursor. You would use the released to check if a scene object or character exists underneath the cursor & if so then you would use that command on the object/character else you would reset back to default command. I'm not going to go into the specifics on how to create something like this right now as I'm pretty sure there's probably already a thread or two on this forum where people have already asked for something like that.

    Actually i would be quite fine with the normal option, so i activated it in the main game options, but still nothing happens when i click at the item ingame?

    Question: have you assigned the mouse interface to the interfaces tab of your playable character? The dragged items option should also be ticked on the game properties (cog icon) section.

    If you've set it up correctly then left clicking on an item in the inventory should replace the mouse cursor with the item image.

    Ok then, quick tip. Don't use save games while working on development of your game. They tend to have conflict issues after you edit, replace or add new content because the save files only contain what existed at the time you created them & the engine has issues trying to read & update data that didn't exist or no longer exists.

    Two methods.

    1. create a custom debug interface. A few people on here have created them for your games so either search the forum for a thread about it or post a new thread asking how to create one.

    2. alternatively you can use the dev console (tab key on keyboard) while running your game through the VS editor. It will allow you to type in various commands to change scenes, condition values, values of values, add / remove items from inventory & so on. type help when dev console is open & then press enter to find out more about the various available commands.
