How exactly do you make it so that you can place your custom monster onto places in your scenario?

Edit -And does anyone know where the muffin graphic is? Somebody already posted it a while ago. I'm not talking about the Iffy graphic, I am talking about the average evil muffin.

Step 1: Read the BoA Editor Docs which are bundled with the Editor download from Spiderweb. Sections 2.2 and 2.6 answer your question in particular.

Step 2: Write a data script for your scenario. You don't have to finish it before you can begin to use it, but you must write the definition for each custom object type before you can use it in the editor.

Step 3: Load your scenario in the editor, which should load the data from your data script. You can then place your custom creatures, floors, terrains, and items the same as the built in ones.

I'm serious, Slith. I will give credit to you, that will be certain. And I thought you made a normal muffin graphic.

I never made a normal muffin graphic, though that one can easily be altered, which I will do if you want. You just have to specify what you want the graphic to look like.

I thought you did...

Hmm, I think it would have no flames...and be slightly smaller. But you don't have to do the smaller part.

Oh, and thank you.

If all you want to do is remove the flames, it can easily be done by simply using a paint can tool (or filler tool or whatever) and filling in the flames with white. I didn't put any effort into the flames, so they only use 2-3 colors.

It is a demon muffin.
Though it does kind of look like you describe.

But it is a demon muffin.
Haven't you guys wondered about what they look like?

Please don't invert the colors and call it an edit... you can do so much more interesting things by color shifting via the editor.

I agree. There's enough of that kind of stuff over at the Louvre.

Look up icon adjustment in the scenario editor documentation.

The editor and the game have the capability to 'adjust' graphics through combinations of simple operations, such as inverting the colors, swapping the red and green components, and tinting the graphic overall. THe point is that since these operations can be done by the game engine itself, there's no point in creating a separate graphic that is just, say, a color invert of another graphic, since both graphics can be used in the game by including only the original and making use of adjusts. Graphics should only be considered separate or new if they have content that cannot be created with simple adjusts.

I wasn't worried about stolen work or anything, I just think inverted graphics look painfully ugly.

That and beer. :P

I don't mind inverts, or color-swapping, outside the editor. In fact, it helps me keep a track of which graphic goes to which item/monster/etc.

Why muffins?

--------------------
Theres a starman waiting in the sky
Hes told us not to blow it
Cause he knows its all worthwhile
He told me:
Let the children lose it
Let the children use it
Let all the children boogie
The game of life is hard to play
I'm gonna lose it anyway
The losing card I'll someday lay
so this is all I have to say.
Weve got five years, what a surprise
Weve got five years, stuck on my eyes
Weve got five years, my brain hurts a lot
Five years, thats all weve got

Starman: As yet another moderator, change your sig. It's thirty times longer than your average post, and that's just not okay.

And why muffins? It seems you missed the time when Iffy was known as Infernal Flam(m)ing Muffin. It was one of those "you had to be there" things.

There probably isn't much to say, it's just an account name and a silly joke at best. Take a harmless object or creature and give them an intimidating title and powers to boot. It's like the dangerous rabbit in "Monty Python and the Holy Grail."

So that I can make the Muffins n' Hell scenario.

I have already made a story (and a sequal). You can access them in my sig. Please read in order though. And my scenario will be a little different, but same storyline.

Iffy, why do you have to cram those muffins everywhere?
It is not as funny as people would like you to believe.
