Well since 1.12 is getting boring and pretty much everyone knows about this now, here's a tutorial on string modding. Now in case you guys don't know what this is, here's a picture from my v3:
What you will need:
BuC-ShoTz .FF Editor
And this one if you are trying to get the scrolling text box in the main menu:
Ok so lets get started. What you first are going to do is get either CraigChrist's and Blackstorm's Zone extractor or use BuC's 1.12 FF Viewer. Either one will extract the zone. For BuC's it will be called "patch_mp-extract.dat" and for the Zone Handler it will be called "patch_mp.zone." So once you get the zone extracted, open it in your favorite hex editor. I will be giving two examples in this tutorial. The first one is for the definition of the string and the second one is for editing the localized string.
Editing the string definition:
Ok so I will be using this to edit:
Notice how there is a string and then its definition. We will be editing its definition (the raw text).
So, if we were to take something like this:
We could change it to something like this:
Notice that they are the same length. If you make it shorter or longer than the original, your patch will blacksreen.
That's all you have to do :y:
Editing the string itself:
Ok for this there are many options. You can change the map names, the menu options, challenges, ect. What you are going to want to do is find something that looks like this (doesn't matter what it says as long as it has a "@" in front of it and text in caps after):
To something like this:
Again, notice how they are the same length. If you make it shorter or longer than the original, your patch will blacksreen.
