Need help making a text screen.

Recommended Posts

I want a text screen with some text to appear between Maps 04 and 05. How do I go about doing this? I'm mapping in ZDoom, by the way.

You need to put a lump called ZMAPINFO in your wad, then edit this as text (use SLADE3). Inside ZMAPINFO, you'll need at least the following. This is an example from a map I'm working on:

map MAP04 "Apparently The Apocalypse" <- Map name
{
next = "MAP05"
cluster = 4 <- This needs to iterate each time you put in a new text cluster. Start with 1.
}
clusterdef 4 {
FLAT= "MXPOFL5" <- your flat texture of choice - this becomes the background
exittext = "As you penetrate the smoky depths beneath", "the base the cries for help grow distant", "and fewer, replaced instead by unnerving", "growls and snarls...", "", "You can't shake the feeling that there is", "something very wrong about to happen." <- Example text
}

Make sure the text loops right. It should work on low resolutions too, like 320 x 240, so its best to test if the text works there. Otherwise it can slip out of the screen.
