A Couple Of Things I Can't Do With Hera

I was just wondering how to do two things with Hera:

1. Change the spashscreen. It happened in Black Seas, and I have one I'd like to put in my plug.

2. Change the par for scenarios (time, losses, killls, etc.).

Anybody know how to do those?

------------------
"I can ail what cures you."

The spashscreen ( :)) supposedly can be changed using ResEdit, but I don't know which file contains it.

The par values can be changed in the scenario editor of Hera. They're just right there, in the window.

Look in the help file.

  1. Scenario editor menu
  2. Appendix A-resource IDs

------------------
-Pallas Athene, {M}ilitia pilot and representative to the Obish Consensus

I can't ifnd the Apendix A - resource IDs thing.

"I can ail what cures you."

near the bottom of the list, it has a thing that's indented. One of the two tells you the acceptable resource ID replacements

------------------
-Pallas Athene, {M}ilitia pilot and representative to the Obish Consensus

It doesn't say how to implement the picture, though.

ResEdit, just paste it in.

------------------
-Pallas Athene, {M}ilitia pilot and Dysian Beta representative to the Obish Consensus
ODV: Obish Dimplomatic Vessel. Obish corvettes are made on Dysian Beta.

Into Ares? If I paste it into Ares, it won't matter if the plug is in or not. I tried creating a PICT resource in my plug with an ID of 502, but that didn't work...I'll have to have a look at Black Seas' innard with ResEdit. I'll post more if that doesn't work.

By the way, thanks for all the help.

That didn't work.

I made that splash screen. ­čśä do you like it?
In fact I helped him make the whole plug! Just check the credits!

That's great, Slug. Do you know how he put your splashscreen in his plug? 'Cause I got one that I want in mine, but I can't figure out how to get Ares to show the one instead of the origional.

------------------
"I can ail what cures you."

Sure.

  1. Copy the image to clipboard
  2. Open your plugin with ResEdit™
  3. Create a PICT resource with the ID of 502 (you can change the ID by selecting the resource and hitting command-I)
  4. Paste your clipboard image into the resource

Also, to create that image, I had to re-render some of the Ares ships. If anyone would like to have the Strata 3D files of these Ares ships, I'd be glad to email them to you.

Thanks, Slug. I'll try that.

Ya know what's weird? It worked this time, but it didn't work before. I guess Slug has some odd kind of powers or something...

Thanks, Slug.

We all like slug and we can give thanks.
Yeah

In return, though Mag, you must tell me in full detail what your plugin is about.
My email address is gajet@pacbell.net

Happy hunting!
