Empires & Dungeons editors released!

June 16, 2006

THIS EDITOR ONLY WORKS WITH THE FULL-VERSION BOUGHT THROUGH REGNOW ( via www.nielsbauergames.com)

You can download it from:

http://nbsd.fileburst.com/ED_GameEditors.exe
(20 MB download)

To install just unzip those files into your Empires & Dungeons folder on your harddisk. It does not install icons for the editors on your desktop. To start both files open the Empires & Dungeons folder with your Windows explorer and start both files manually.

There are two editors:

MODULE EDITOR:

You need the module editor to combine maps, items and monster settings to one playable scenario. The items and monster editors will be released later. Right now you can use the default items (.itm) and monster (.mon) files shipped with the game.

MAP EDITOR:

With the map editor you can create individual strategy game maps (dungeon maps are always created randomly). The editor should be hopefully self-explaining, if not please ask.

ITEM + MONSTER EDITOR:

Please see the readme for more info.

HOW TO START A CUSTOM SCENARIO:

Start Empires & Dungeons FULL-VERSION. Click on “Start a new game”. On the next screen click on the bottom left corner on “NEXT” and on the upcoming screen enter the name of the MODULE FILE (.mod) without an extension (e.g.: “dragonhoard” without the ” “).

Please note that you need a .jpg picture of your map (possibly use a screenshot) in the format 193×181 pixel in the game directory for a correct display on the “show map” screen. The file needs to have the same name as your module.

Enjoy!
