Re: Sooo... Back to basics 2016

Hi Jorge Your critique is useful feedback to the relevant builder, and perhaps to the wider audience of BtB builders in general. I recall a similarly lengthy level a few years ago. This is a bit of a personal bug-bear of my own. Every year we 'suggest' to the the builders that they should aim to bui...

Re: Happy Birthday EssGee!

Thank you all very much!!! :jump: It's a special one this year (the big six number) and I'm celebrating in a big way in a few weeks time returning to the rock n roll stage for a show with my old band for the first time in 25 years. Should be fun! :guitarist: :drummer: :singer: :guitarist: :guitarist:

Re: General Level Editing Thread

Yep Wadmerger converts range of values 0-100 in sounds.txt to a percentage of 0-127. Let's not even go there why.... it was some routine in the Wadmerger code that was never fixed. Don't question it... just accept it as another annoying quirk of Wadmerger. :wink:

Re: General Level Editing Thread

They only reset if I load the wad and try to generate (display?) its values as sounds.txt. OK now I see what you mean. Yes, you are right. When you load a wad into TRLE sound editor and then generate a sounds.txt from it, the editor uses its internal reference - standard sounds.txt values and marks...

Re: General Level Editing Thread

No. If you followed that instruction on image 35 - you would generate a new sounds.txt in the Sounds.txt tab. At this stage it's not saved anywhere. This would then show you what the values are in your wad. If those values are not changing (i.e they appear to be reverting to the original values), th...

Re: General Level Editing Thread

I know you've tried to explain thoroughly what you're seeing, but I think there is information missing from your description which makes it hard to diagnose the problem and I don't want to confuse you further. But it does appear to me that you are getting confused with where sources of sounds.txt ar...

Re: General Level Editing Thread

Solved in PM to you.
You were referring to your sounds.txt values, when you should have been looking in Wadmerger what your actual Chance values were in your wad. Fixed for you with TRLE Sound Editor.

I stand corrected Mulf and yes, I do know what it means. :wink:
Not supposed to be inspiring, I think it's called a joke. :D

Re: BtB name

As far as I'm concerned, there's no going to be a change anytime soon in the Back to Basics name or BtB name (as you prefer to call it). Acronyms are just used to avoid typing many letters for example. But it's not the best idea when you want to promote a special and beloved event like the Back to ...

Re: Back to Basics 2016 - Open for registration

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the level release date for BtB2016 has been revised. Michael will be away from home for the next week and a bit, making impossible to meet the original release schedule. This gives builders a little extra time to finalize their beta tests and repairs. Levels will rel...

Re: My new rock music album

I've just released a new song with a new video! - 'Only the Quick and the Dead'. Similarity in title to Hendrik's TR game is purely coincidental. :D In fact this song was originally written in 1981. But this is the first official recording of it with modern production and arrangement. If you'd like ...

Re: Passing on the BtB Baton

Thanks for the good wishes folks. Don't worry, I've no intention to leave the community. It's just that I don't have the time available that is required to have ongoing commitment associated with BtB responsibilities.

Passing on the BtB Baton

After four successful seasons of being part of the Back To Basics Package team - three of them as team leader, I have had to make the decision to reduce my involvement with BtB and TRLE in general. I have stepped down from the BtB team leader role following the end of BtB 2016 Persia. My music now t...
