    A new, second PDF is probably in order to handle this best.

    Is the Modding tutorial about how to build a new Mod that is included in the download with World Builder valid for use with the new Front End and 5.5? The reason I ask is because I was trying it out to try and figure out how I can contribute to this great project but ran into a huge issue. I got to the step where I was supposed to copy the tutorial I was working on and then activate the Front End to see my module pop up and make sure it is working.

    When I did that step and activated the new Front End it found my module which is great. However, it errored out when I was trying to add the module and in the process it somehow ate the other two modules (original TOEE and 5.5). I use the repair Front End X program which did bring back both of the other modules however, all of my saves and characters were gone. I then used the restore save function and it restored the lost saves.
    So the repair Front End and restore Saves both work.

    But, I am still stuck with the problem that apparently the tutorial no longer is valid based on the Front End X. Or did I somehow screw up the first 15 steps of the tutorial?

    Thanks.

    Ahhhh... you're quite right, NLB03, we'll need some new documentation for new modules now in ToEEWB.

    In the docs for TFE-X you'll find instructions on how to do it, though: basically you rename your data.new_mod and /modules/new_mod to 'data' and 'ToEE' like the existing one, and zip them up into an archive called 'new_mod.tfm'. But please read the docs with TFE-X and it should be straight-forward. Also, do all that renaming and zipping somewhere other than in your Atari folder, or you may have a bad day ;)

    Out of curiosity is there anything you guys can't do?:love:
    I wish I've seen these tutorials 3 years ago in '05 when I had tons of free time to kill :cry:

    Pretty nice tutorial you've made there. Very well explained so far (I'm still only looking into part 4 of dialogs).
    Many thanks.

    ps: only the link to download the TOEE World Builder v1.7.5 from the forum seems dead (on the forum, not on the pdf). I got the 2.0.5 from here:
    http://www.co8.org/forum/showthread.php?t=2864.
    Not sure if it is the latest version.
