Default NGLE Help menu

by Paolone

Some help files (NGLE and revised help) will be automatically downloaded if you don't own them when you select the corrispective menu item.

When download is complete, you should decompress the zip file directly in TRLE folder and this operation will create the sub-folder HELP with all help files, ready to be opened by NGLE menu commands.

Other specific help file Help Menu contains also other informative documents or procedures.

Object IDs for TREP

If you are a TREP users, you can find useful this comand.

Some trep effects require the index of moveables but to get this index is a bit problematic because the number you see in level map (in NGLE) is different than real index in tr4 file for that item.

Using this command you'll can see an object IDs conversion table to discover easily the real tr4 index for each object in the map.
