Such as the code for the six potions in Sandcaster that if you click on them then press Esc it will still use one of the potion uses, all it needed was another check to see if you clicked on a character or not, if you press Esc or exit out from drinking the potion(s) it goes to line 6 and exits.(XeenIndoorMapEditor)

Ok, and how do you apply it? I would be interested, as I'm starting on WoX now :P

Trial and error...

I seem to have had the same issue as before... as in if it isn't coded right it doesn't seem to work and loops the thing...

I have been using the XeenIndoorMapEditor to re-write the coding... example of bark's potion code (re-write)

00 X Y 08 9,0,4
01 X Y 01 17
02 x Y 09 44,1,3
03 X Y 18
04 X Y 32 2,10
05 X Y 09 4,0,7
06 X Y 18
07 X Y 08 9,0,16
08 X Y 08 9,0,15
09 X Y 12 0,0,45,5
10 X Y 01 18
11 x Y 09 9,0,12
12 X Y 34 X,100,00
13 X Y 24 0,0
14 X Y 18
15 X Y 24 8,0
16 X Y 24 7,0
17 X Y 12 0,0,45,5
18 X Y 01 18
19 X Y 09 44,1,20

This code will grant the best bows (which the game never seems to drop due to a bug in the coding )
0 X Y 08 9,0,3
1 X Y 25 42,42,1
2 X Y 18
3 X Y 32 0,6
4 X Y 45 31
5 X Y 20 66,7,0,0,0,0
6 X Y 24 0,0

00 x Y 32 X,Y (who Will)
01 X Y 08 9,0,4 (If SP =>0, go to line 4, if Esc or SP<0 then go to line 3)
02 X Y 18 (Exit)
04 X Y 08

This seems to work to correct the bug of pressing esc when you select a who will action then press esc...

Ok, and are you planning on making some patching executable so that all of us can apply these patches?

A) How is the map editor working for you?
B) Let me know when you get some fixed EVT files -- I can help writing a patching utility.

It works for all maps but the maps for Castle Alamar, when ever I try editing the Xeen Power Water events when I try to save I get a error.

Hey Cedric could you include XeenSGE Darkxx.WOX to the Xeen save files, currently you have to search manually to open a safefile to edit save games. Another note, where is the starting data for Word of Xeen Characters?

I will have to edit a new copy of World of Xeen because I made some changes to stat gains etc...

Rialdo the Ranger "I will teach anyone pathfinding for 2,500 gold." in Vertigo only charges 2000 gold for pathfinding... Is this a bug? or a mistake?

File MAZE.PTY (0xEE5C) @ 0x377D
The SGE has a major flaw in that it always looks at offset 0x377D for the character information -- it should be searching thru the ToC for the offset, as unpacking/repacking can change the offset.

SGE2 has been on my radar for awhile, but little progress has been made.

I added the tavern and blacksmith in Lakeside (I tested them they seem to work with out any bugs) So you won't get the messages "These stairs once led to a tavern, but it was destroyed long ago." and "These stairs once led to a blacksmith shop, but it was destroyed long ago." anymore.

I am thinking about adding a If statement to magic wells to prevent + 25, + 50, + 100 etc to non magic using characters - Barbarians, Knights, Thieves and Ninjas so all they will get is a refreshing message.

Adding four lines to temp magic point wells will add a check to see if the character is a knight, robber, ninja or barbarian and will display "The water is cool and refreshing." just like if you had gray magic points, otherwise it will continue with some minor code changes...

00 X Y 32 2,3
01 X Y 40 2

Curious, is there any game code that sets the blacksmith items to some particular values unique to Lakeside, or does it use the item pattern of some other town?
