Sequencing commands

Hi folks,

Within a few days I'm starting a massive Flex/RL project. At the moment i'm sorting out if RL1 or RL2 will suits me best.
Since there's a lot of bootstrap loading involved, calling commands 1 by 1 is needed at that stage.
I've found CReynders bootstrap demo on Github which makes use of Aaron Hardy's Macrobot utitlity. That's where I was looking for, but then I'm stuck at RL1. Actually, with all the benefits of RL2 like simplicity and modularity in mind, I want to say goodbye to RL1.
So I tried to port the Macrobot classes to a RL2 extension without any luck. So I Googled a bit further and found a extension called CommandFlow. But again, this solution is version 1.0.

What are my options? Has anyone already got something similar working in RL2? Should I just stick to RL1?
BTW, wasn't it Stray who was working on an experimental async/sequence extension?

I hope that someone can point me in the right direction.

    Hi Maurice,

    As for RL2 I don't know any command sequencers yet, but for RL1 you also have @alecmce Flow extension source blog post, Macrobot you mentioned and some other.

    As for the massive project you're starting I'd reccomend RL2 - it will pay off in the future, but you should reserve some time to port/write some extensions you may need. Extensions for RL2 should show up soon and also the framework is much more flexible.

    @Michal Thanks for the input. I agree RL2 is the way to go atm.

    Okay, few hours further. I found an old repo DeferredCommandQueue developped by Stray. It looked plain, simple and seemed to suit my needs. After some fiddling and making modifications I was able to tie this up to my RL2 setup. Afterall it wasn't a big hassle.
    So for now it works!
