[Video Tutorial #1] Create a portal to enter your dungeon

Postby Asto » Sun Nov 15, 2009 10:44 pm

this tutorial is based on my topic [Tutorial] Start your map through a portal - The better way and also includes creating a portal and layout

Content: Create a simple Layout based on one chunk (as base for tutorial #2) and then learn how to create a town-portal to enter your dungeon

i think i need a better capturing tool, one that zooms in automatically ;) but okay here are the vids:

Good to see some video tutorials popping up, and I believe Youtube can support 1080p, but people won't be able to(at least those with medium spec PCs probably won't).

This sounds great as I have one chunk that took me four days to make and it's awesome looking with lots of cool stuff. I am looking for an complete idiot-proof tutorial like this except for map chunks. I think half the battle is learning the file structure and naming and how TorchED works. I'm a bit lost other than the actual making of the maps. And yeah, 1080p.... :shock: If there's no audio then I should be able to play it. LOL

Will watch it at work, just to eveluate now that I actually got the hang of it:). I even know what the problem is with child randomization and not working properly:D. Have been sitting making chunks al weekend just to decide I want another design so I started from scratch hehe.

I think it would be nice to have a TorchEd group on youtube, and have everyone post their videos to that group to make finding things easeier. If you do start one let me know ill add it to my TorchEd Basics and Tutorials thread in this forum.

I just wanted to say "thank you so very much" for your video, I was having a devil of a time figuring this out. Though I was using map scrolls, I couldn't get it to link properly. Your walkthrough video got me through the part I didn't understand, so again, thank you!

Just fixed that exception when adding a new inclusive files to to a new chunktype in the rule set. (fixed the deal where you have to already have [LAYOUT] block in order for the editor to save explicit layouts the other day)

Thanks a lot for the video of this.

Re: [Video Tutorial #1] Create a portal to enter your dungeon

I'm having trouble with this portal modding thingy.

I have made a map, saved it to the mod folder. Then went through the tutorial for making a portal show up in town to link to my map but the portal never shows up when I start a new game.

Then tried doing this differently and went through the tutorial for making a scroll that opens a portal to my dungeon, but I can't even make the scroll show up in the default merchants' inventory.

I'm not sure what I'm missing here.

I found funny that the tutorials tell to link the portal to a place on the town map, but do not say to link the same portal to a location on the custom map.
Can some ex-newbie who has successfully used the tutorials help me please? Would be greatly appreciated

I followed kuncarlos' tutorial on youtube on how to make a basic dungeon and a warper in town to lead into the mod dungeon.

It seems to work since I can see a portal in town however the portal appears in a place totally different from where i have placed the portal group by means of the layout link in town, image below.

Can someone pls suggest what I'm doing wrong? I have tried recreating the portal.layout file placing the object in a different location but it's no use. I have tried different new characters. The portal is still in the same unaccessible location, unchannged. Pls help!

EDIT : apparently need to exit the editor and re-create the layout link for the portal
