Dialog (.LIB) Tool

Postby Finito » Sat Oct 09, 2010 1:25 am

DlgEditor.zip

This is the dialog tool which was originally for droiyan and i have converted it for use with myth of soma.

Mainly to be used for editing existing dialogs (aslong as keep all the area rectangles and never change their value) , import/export of dialog images and moving around existing area rectangles.

Cannot create buttons that require more than two states e.g. the PK button or area rectangles that are not buttons (this can be achieved however by .using a button and moving the extra rectangle outside of the image).

Exporting Dialog Image
There is 'Export Dialog Image' on the 'File' menu. This will export the dialog image as a 256 colour bitmap.

Importing Dialog Image
On the tool bar underneath the menus next to the '-' (zoom out) on right is the button to select the image for the dialog. It will import only a 256 colour bitmap.

Moving Area Rectangle
Select and use arrow keys. Can select them by clicking them on the image.

Resizing Area Rectangles
Select and SHIFT+arrow key.

Did not happen when i tried it. Figured out the problem. I'll be uploading a new version of the Dialog editor shortly.

Edit: Uploaded new version that fixes problem. It's within the original post.

There was problems in the dialog editor that have since been fixed.
So those who have downloaded this previously will need to download it again.

Hey,

Without sounding too cheeky, any chance of this tool being able to convert better than 256 colours? I cant make any new UI or login screens with 256 colours.

cheers

Yeah Dim, when I was running Legends I thought "why the hell hasn't anyone made any custom login screen's yet?". So I started on a few of my own and soon though "oh....that's why".
