This is a program to help create a quest for LH. It allows for the creation of more advanced quests and to test those quests without going to LH.
Note: I am not a programmer. I will not take resposibility for any problems that may arise from using this program (actual or imagined). It is not purposely designed to harm anyones computer. It requires .NET 4.5 at the moment.
To install extract the .exe and the three .txt files to a folder and run it.
To install extract the files to a folder and click on the oneClick setup.exe, it will download the appropriate .NET protocals and install the program to your computer appropriately.
I've worked on some stuff and here is a little tutorial on how to create a quest. It is a complete rough draft and is likely going to change, but since people are trying stuff out there I thought I'd post it for you to look at.
Some of the features:
-It loads a collection of quests. (Namely I can load up the corequests.xml file and read every single quest and you can edit them to your hearts content)
-It allows you to save a colleciton of quests. If saving a large collection it will take a considerable amount of time.
-It does a test run of your quest.
-It has some predefined variables for you to choose from. (Typical things like giving experience and such are in a box that you can choose from).
-The editing perspective is attempting to model what the player will see on the screen in LH as they might experience.
-The target audience is for those that know how to make their quest from the xml. (I've tried to add some other functionality here, but there is already a quest wizard, so I was focused on getting me to write quests quickly and efficiently)
- It provides you with the ability to check for errors through a log-file.
- It allows you to edit the prefix of a collection of quests (for purposes of making scenarios)
