Hi all. I am a newbie in Bolt. Sorry for troubled all brothers here. After I went through the menu of Flow Machine(FM), State Machine(SM), Flow State (FS) and Super State (SS), my confusion on the definition and usage among all the above terms has increased.
Would you mind to tell me the answer to the following questions? Thanks.
1) Do FM and SM has any affiliation/co-op relationship? If they do, is anyone's power/function of them superior to the other?
2) I found both FM and SM are doing some similar things. Both of them are telling and determining what a game object need to done when a change/state affected it. Besides, both FM and SM are event-driven. They all will be triggered to do something when a condition of the event is true. So, what the difference between them?
3) From my understanding of FS and SS, both of them are created inside an SM. FS and SS can be co-existed in the same level inside an SM. The difference between these two terms is FS in an SM will be a series/sets of events, conditions, actions etc.... . Nevertheless, SS is just a single unit inside an SM. An SS contains FS and another SS. Am I correct?
