Creating my own map config file

Recommended Posts

I've done my own custom config file which works great.

My question is:
What do I need to add to my custom config file to get DB to get the "Effects->Thing Tag" options to show up in the Thing Editor?
Is it a command I can just add or is it some kind of hardcoded thing?

Thanks in advance.

You can define Things in the config using 2 different methods.

The simple way:

9000 = "Ambient Sound";
The advanced way:
	title = "Ambient Sound";
	sprite = "IW_SOUND";
	arg1 = "Sound Index";
	arg2 = "Volume";
As you can see, the advanced way allows you to add some extra options to the thing, such as the sprite to display in the editor and the arguments it has. These arguments only work in Hexen format maps and disables the ability to choose an Action for a Thing.

Hope this is what you're looking for.
