Editing .wed or .tis files
« on: July 02, 2016, 07:30:17 PM »
Hi!
I try to do a mod for BG2EE.
Everything works fine except to create new maps or modify them.
(I use near infinity 2.35)

If i try to make a copy of a .wed files in the override folder,
the game freeze or won't load the area.
Even if it's the same name,tis,etc

If i make a copy of a tis in the override folder with or without modification,
artefact will appear sometime. Black line most of the time...   
So i'm stuck and can do any new maps..

I try also IETME and DLTCEP and could do nothing more with them...

Please help ! How do you do new maps ?? include them ?
I promise a lot of fights, good IA, tons of Dragons, Items, new ability,
powerful spells,  and news strategy ...

I think i find a way to copy a .wed file !)

The problem was not the .wed file itself.
But when BG2 load a .wed, he search for
bmp files with almost the same name..
ARH001.wed will search for ARH001HT, ARH001LM, ARH001SR..

So i find the original BMP files (with near infinity) make copy
with the news names, and it load perfectly !

I maybe find also a way to stop the bug artefact when using a
customised .tis.

When i have every files with good names including the new .tis
i load the map with IETME.. Then save it again.. IETME ask me
about some fix and i say yes to everything.. And it works..

Anyway, if you have some way to create custom maps please
send it ! I search all the web but everything i find doesn't work
on my pc..

Forget to say.. To make the copy of the .wed
i use DLTCEP. Load the original map.
simply change the name of the .wed.
Then save the map with the same name.
It will create the new .wed.
Almost sure that near infinity will corrupt
copy of .wed cause even with the same
name i could not make it work..

I think that the graphic bug disappear..

But not totally. I continue to have black line..

And when i do a pause some tiles are darker
than the others..

Anyone know what happen and how to fix it ?

The black lines are a know bug. You can avoid it by converting your TIS files into the PVRZ-based variant with Near Infinity.
