Adding sprites into XWE
« on: May 23, 2010, 05:33:42 PM »
I'm trying to put some Chex Quest 3 sprites into my wad

I can't see anything wrong with my DECORATE lump

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

The sprite's name is BARRA10

But in doombuilder, it looks like this

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

It's supposed to be the brown barrel from Chex Villa.

What went wrong? I'd guess it's something in the state declaration. Probably something to do with how I named the sprite.

Alright...

The should be ""s, just BrownBarrel.

And the next problem is the 75. There is already an object with the number '75'. Try something like 9999.

Finally, the name of the sprite may be having complications with a sprite of the same name. Rename that sprite to something else.

If I had to choose between the real world or the Chex Quest Fan forums; I'd choose the Chex Quest fan forums.

ok, changing the number helped, now it shows up as the right image in doombuilder

It's got cyan around it, though, and it doesn't work in-game (exclamation point flag)

Does the cyan have something to do with the transparency settings?

Cyan is automatically transparent unless the sprite is a PNG.

Anyway, try placing a -1 to the spawn rather then 0. Then loop rather then stop.

IDK...

Try adding 'Game Doom' above the height.

EDIT - gez and NeuralStunner on the zdoom.org forums figured it out

I did "load raw data" on the sprite images (:facepalm), and it didn't convert them to the right format. I thought I could get away with it, because it was from one wad to another, but it didn't work.

I think I'll make a DECORATE tutorial for the site when I get really good at this
