Alright d|r, you are beta testing now.

You will just get the full game beta in a month or two from now.

um, ok - but why would you prefer the one you made to the one above?

Christi
06-05-08, 00:21
Christi, The reason that the 095.wav isn't working is because it's in the wrong format. It's in PCM, it needs to be in ADPCM!

Use sound recorder:

1. open your .wav
2. Press save as.
3. Go to the bottom where it says you can change the type of file. Change it to ADPCM, 4 bit. ;)

Sorry I'm so Late...WHAT'S SOUND RECORDER? I understand everything else...but it it a certain program or anything?

Click 0 on the camera before the door and press the 14 button this activates a heavy trigger for that camera.Simply click on the door you want to open and place a heavy trigger for it under the camera.:)

Does anyone know the name of the tool which edits .pak files?

Tomb Raider Custom Screens doesn't edit .PAK files but it lets you save .BMP/JPEG files as a .PAK file. Give me a sec and I'll find the download link...

EDIT: PM me and I'll send you the link.

How do I make the TR1/A lighting trap (st. francis folly, thor/hephaestus room)

God Horus
08-05-08, 20:32
1 person needed, and that is it.

I need a trailer maker! In the trailer I am putting some footage of the manor (very little), and some footage of Underground Training Area (the one from the beta, and there is quite a bit of footage from Peru.

If anyone can make this trailer, it would be great. Contact me ASAP by PM. Also, if you could send me a sample of your previous work, that would be great.

How do I make a ladder?

Titak
09-05-08, 15:58
Do you mean how to make a wall climbable like a ladder?

- Select the tile in front of the wall section you want to make climbable.
- Locate the four dark green buttons below the 2D grid.
These are the 'ladder' buttons.
When you click on one of the buttons you'll see a dark green line appearing in the 2D grid window.
You should click the button that makes a dark green line appear in front of the wall. ;)

So if, for example, your wall is above (in 2D grid view) the tile you selected, you need to click the top green button. :D

Having texture problems using Rviewer.
I overwrote tut1 tga with new ones and they work fine in NGLE, but in Rviewer, the textures and missing and are only about 5 object textures:cen:
Tried reloading the project, but still missing the textures...
Can someone test/fix them for me? Open the tr4 file in Rviewer and see if it is right. Otherwise, it'll just be boring old TRLE and not like the rooms I posted in my SH:No Escape thread.

Woot! I got my Larson to work again! He was supposed to be an enemy you shoot a few times, then he dissapears, but this was buggy and did not work. So I changed him to an animating object, and set a trigger in a room. As soon as you step on this trigger, Larson appears and runs across the room, and then steps on an antitrigger for himself. He makes 4 or 5 appearances in total, and all of them looks so cool :D

I think that message usually pops up when a room is cropped or deleted while it still has objects in it. I guess the LE sort of remembers the objects are there (somewhere) but the room isn't and the poor thing gets very confused... :confused:

@Lara's Backpack

The banisters are from TRSearch's Manor (I asked MrNiceGuy for permission) and the columns are from Aurelien52's manor, but are retextured so they are wood. I will add a 3D frame, but I can't until I get a picture which goes in well. I think I may just use the TRsearch one...

God Horus

True that animated textures which are also transparent as well as double sided work? I doubt this, because I had many water textures which still animated properly when I did not have double sided ticked.

Transparent textures don't need to be applied as transparent and double sided to work.

If you post a more detailed story you'll spoil the whole level set for all of us. :( The general outline you've posted is enough. I have a really cool story planned for my level and I'd love to share it with everyone, but it would ruin the whole level for everyone because they'd know what would happen. Don't make this mistake. In fact you've already told us far too much.

Thanks for the advice d|r. The last one was honestly a bit messy, considering I typed it at 10:00 last night (could not get to sleep at all, getting my kitchen renovating and they decide to rip out the tiles at night, and it was Victoria's day so there were fire works out)

Anyways, here is a simply neater version. My entire level set is 4 parts, and I will release it part by part on TRLE.net, and I am talking to MichealP about this, and he said after I release all the parts, he can just release one big file with all of them together.

The game is Re-in-visioning Lara's hunt for the Scion. No more Atlantis, it's all different now.

Part 1 is called Re/Visioned - It is all remake of the levels up until Lost Valley. Lara enters the Peru Underworld

Part 2 is called Ashes to Ashes - Lara is in the Peru Underworld, and it is the worst place she has ever been to. But, she finds piece 1 of the scion.

Part 3 is called Egyptian Suns (working title, I may change the title to "A Thousand Egyptian Suns") Lara looks for the piece of the scion, and ultimately enters the Egyptian Underworld. Natla comes along though and steals the pieces.

Part 4 is called Following Trails You race against time to get to Mexico BEFORE Natla, and get the last piece of the Scion (this level is actually timed 30:00)

I need opinions, which is the primary reason I am posting this.

I also made the textures for Egyptian Suns (it's a shame I can't release them, because they are BEAUTIFUL!!!!) I took Tomb Raider Xtra textures and I layered TRA textures on them.

Hello everybody! :wve: It's been ages since I've shown any glimpses of my upcoming project. Why? Because I had to wipe my hard drive clean and I lost everything. That sucks, but I will go on. Anyway, it's called Tomb Raider: The Atlantean Mandate Project. It's quite a long, complex title, so I will be referring to it as AMP most of the time. It takes place after TRL and ties in quite a bit with TR1 and AOD. I've combined Lara's old and new biographies to actually make sense together. Also, I've tweaked a bit of Lara's personality. In the beginning, we see Lara giving a lecture at a large university. Why? Because in the original bio (TR1), she was said to have been a bit of a writer. So, she has books and she is paid to teach from them. That's only a very temporary job, however. After the first cutscene, Lara travels to Cambodia, where she discovers a tie between Von Croy's work (before his death) and a queen she once defeated. (Look at the title.) This thrusts Lara into an epic adventure, where she'll meet several friends and foes from the past games. The story ends up being a lot darker than any of the actual Tomb Raider games. I'll post more soon. ;)

Hola, once again! :wve: I've made some progress on my AMP project in the last few days. The storyline is coming out great. I just hope it will be easy to express through the the gameplay. I'm aiming at multiple levels, but only time will tell how long this project will take. I hope to have it completed in two years, but I'm such a freakin' perfectionist that it might take longer than that. There's no way it will be done before then because instead of releasing it early, I would rather extend the gameplay. I'll post a bit more within the next few days. ;)

Assistance Needed: Hey, if anybody could point me to some programs I'll need to create the game I've described, it would be greatly appreciated. Please don't send me to some huge TRLE or NGLE guide. I want to know from you guys what you use. :)

Goto Tools;

To convert .wav to .ogg goto "compress external wav files".
To convert .ogg to .wav files go to "de-copress external files".

Quick question:

How do I make two different ambiences play in two different areas? :confused:

For example: Inside Lara's house it's a soft melody, outside it's the birds chirping.

Set a trigger for the ambient sounds. YOu have background loops starting from 101 to 115 i think. Put a CD trigger for that loop at any exit to the outside and it will turn to the birds chirping. To set it back to the inside ambience place a trigger at every entrance into the manor. It will stay the inside track.

Well that's what I was missing!
But now I have another problem. Can some one explain me how to set up a camera pointing to an object, in this case a door, with out saying "look in the tutorial manual"? becuase I did look and my camera still points at lara.

Place a trigger for the door
Place a trigger for the camera on the same square
click on the door. Select the trigger window and change "trigger type (top box) to TARGET
place trigger on the same square as the other 2.

I am thinking of starting a manor competition. I want to get people opinions on this before I start it.

It would be very similar to B2B, whereas I would send a WAD to all contestants, as well as a TGA with everything needed to make a manor. It would HAVE to have some sort of puzzle, and it must be new and original. I do not want to have just a manor level with nothing to do, it must have puzzles and other fun things to do!

Please give me your opinions on this.

Ok first of all, you can not not play these games without TR4 files

For an updated version, I have absolutely no idea...If you mean animations then here:
1)download the TRW file
2)open up the object LARA in animation editor in wadmerger
3)load the animation that you are about to change (example:GeckoKid's shimmey is animation 167 and 168 I think...you would load those animations)
4)go to the bar on the top of the screen-Animation-Import(replace)-load the file
5)exit and save
6)play

Add a tomb4 file to the root folder of that game.

If you want to mod it, you would need to export all of the textures, then you can one by one modify them and then when you load the textures again, it would look the way you modded them. If you want to edit meshes (the way her body is physically shaped) then you export her meshes and edit them in Meta, then re-map all of her joints. :wve:

And about the outfit, the very first thing you'll need to do is ask Po Yu about permission to tweak it. :) And you'll also need a 3D Modeling program, Metasequia is very good for that. :) But i don't know how to make objects unfortunately. :o

American Assassin:
It shouldn't be asking for a disk unless you downloaded an ISO image instead of a zip file.


Christi:
1) You have to use LARA_START_POS to mark where you want her to return to the first level. If I remember right, you need to put 1 in the OCB of the LARA_START_POS in the first level. In the second level, change the finish trigger to have the first level number in the box next to the trigger type, and 1 in the Timer. When Lara hits the finish trigger in the second level, she will go to the first level at the LARA_START_POS. She will be facing the same direction as the nullmesh cone.

2) Where did you get the outfit?

I could really use some assistance. First off, let me say, the following image is not an official image of Lara Croft. It is mine, so don't use it as your own. Kiss-Bite created it for me a while ago and I own it. I plan to use the image for multiple things, one of which is a TRLE/NGLE related task. I'm not good with PhotoShop, so I was wondering if somebody could make her top black (or very dark gray) and her shorts a much darker brown. Also, I need a blank background; plain white or plain black. Heck, red would be best. :)

You don't add a line. Find the line that gives the name of your TR4 file. The number after that is the number of the background track. Just change the number and you have new background sound.
