Hi, im some random guy.
SO iv been working with Hyrule magic to Make a little Zelda Rom hack, its going to be similar gameplay but with different story and characters, basically a graphics and Dialog hack.
HMagic is hard to use at times but so far i have been able to figure out stuff on my own,....until we get to the Dialog.
the editor looks pretty straight forward. but when i tried editing it, it messed everything up.
So i changed one dialog as a test at first. One, and it wasn't a special one just the Pyramid message about the silver arrow. (and yes i got all the 's things right) and i didn't make it to long, in fact i made the message shorter.
and the Entire games text went mixed around so now NPC say half messages that belong to other places/NPC's and its just one Big dialog mess.
And changing the message back to the original doesn't seam to fix it ether, nothing i try seams to fix it.
Luckily i got a back up so i didn't lose anything.
later (after returning to my backup) i tested Editing Links uncles dialog as a test, and that seamed to work fine.
is this just a one time thing? or Did i do something wrong? (im very careful when editing)
so im worried that i wont be able to change the dialog. i got a huge project here and i got half the graphics done, if i cant change the dialog then im stuck.
should i look for another Dialog edit program? or can Hmagic really do it? or will this happen all the time?
some info on the game if anyone cares:
the plan was to change the Dark world in to the "future" and all the "Darkworld bosses" will be Future versions of NPC's you meet in the light world, (so dont tease the sign guy he might become an evil warlock)
all this would be done via Dialog and art. Putting short story's around each boss.
