How can I make a picture enemy like in UACMN, or JCpack?
I really want to make one with XWE and Doom Builder 2
Please help!

Because I want to know how, so I won't be such a no0b

I reckon you're taking your inspiration from the wrong source. But anyway: these "picture enemies" are regular monsters like the stock Doom ones, but instead of having multiple sprites for walking, attacking, etc it uses the one sprite for everything. It's not really one of the more spectacular feats of engineering, so I'd advise you to start somewhere different. If you still want to try your hand at making custom monsters, talk to the folks over at Realm667. Oh, and I'd recommend using SLADE3 instead of XWE, as SLADE3 doesn't tend to corrupt files.

I feel like you just gave someone instructions on how to make a bomb, Obsidian. Oh well, at least you tried to point him toward the higher path.

I was thinking something similar. Heh.

How is it you've made three posts yet your member title is still "Registered just to make one post"?

Based on the lack of thread icon, this was probably originally posted in Blogs, where posts don't add to postcount. Now that it's in Doom Editing, they count, so his title is different.

I lost my first huge map to a HDD failure. Literally months down the drain. Believe me, I feel your pain.

Just take a little breather. You'll bounce back. In the meantime, why don't you tell us what your map was about? Even if we can't play it, we can give you a review of the concept.

Very random question but are you Matthew Jury? The guy who's made maps for Aquarius to review?

You made a long map without making backups along the way?

Computer use 101: Make backups.


When I am loading a WAD up in a tool such as XWE, before I even load it I right-click-and-drag the file to an empty space and pick "Copy here". It only takes a second and if my main file survives the editing process, I can delete the backup. However, for what ever reason, I don't seem to get many corrupted WADs anyway. I can't remember the last time it happened.

XWE can be used to generate cool untangle puzzles.

I think XWE is better than many give it credit for.

As long as you don't have the wad open and save it in another program, at the same time you have it open in XWE, it doesn't corrupt things to any greater degree than any other wad editing program.

This was only days down the drain... but it really must have sucked for you, because just a few days made me angry as fuck...
Sorry...

lol this happens to me before for my 2nd map and 3rd map, it nearly ruins my whole map that means I need to remake it again. Try to make more backups, or send the backups to yourself via email.

A better idea would be zipping the file each time it is majorly edited.

I don't know how I did it but XWE makes backups for me all the time automatically for some reason, like almost every time a change something. I recently deleted about 2 GB of backups:
