It may be that I have previously had a bad workflow, but let me explain.
I make a lot of puzzle grid based games where you pick up a piece from a tray, and drop it into a grid based game board.
I'm having trouble repeating my previous methods using Starling. for example:
there is a piece in the piece tray. lets call it piece:
on the GameBoard object, each gridspace has this:
...Very simple. However, this doesn't work in Starling because it seems that if the mouse is down already, (TouchPhase.BEGIN), then no release (TouchPhase.ENDED) can trigger on any other displayobject in the game.
Does this make sense? I'm not sure of how to cleanly detect that the mouse has released on this.gridCell.... I'm trying to keep it clean and modular. Any ideas?
