Hey all....I found a tutorial once on making conversations with BehavEd. Since I reinstalled the tools when I got my new editor ( GTK radiant) my tutorial was lost. And yes. It was a downloaded tutorial.

So can anyone please give me the web adress to this site or explain how to make conversations with BehavEd?

Thanks in advance.

Fortunately you don't need any tutorials. Just study the Raven scripts. Check the Cinematics folder. Conversation scripts are truly plentiful in there.

Uhh where can I find these examples. I looked in scripts and found a bunch of .IBI files. If these are the examples what program do I use to open them? Thanks

I think those tutorials you lost, that you mentioned earlier are these:

http://mapping.jediknightii.net/tutorials.htm

Among them is the tutoral on adding conversations.

thx Kengo


[EDIT] Oh and is that tutorial the one where it shows the words on the screen? For example you walk in the room and the rebel says in text on the screen " Hello "

Yeah, pardon me. The Raven scripts came with the Editing tools. They are in SP_scripts subfolder (or something like that) in your Tools folder. They are ordinary .txt files, so you can open them even with Notepad, should you wish to do so.

Studying them will remind you of the crusial fact that conversation is something more than just giving out noises. It also involves looking at the conversation partner, sometimes looking somewhere else, waving hands to emphasize some points. These things are included in Raven scripts, and thus they are much more helpful than old tutorials (with no disrespect to them, they have their uses in the beginning).

Yeah, I agree. I pretty much learnt everything I know about ICARUS just by looking at those files. Every level I release, I am going to leave the script TXTs in the PAK for people to use as reference.
