[Important] Adding textboxes with DreamMaker
« on: November 27, 2011, 01:31:12 PM »
Hi there translators.

I just contacted the creator of DreaMaker about adding textboxes to the dialogues file.
I've tried extensively to follow Reives instructions, but didnt manage to make it work.
The author says adding textboxes is not currently supported.

However, he plans to release a new version of DreaMaker XP (4.10) which should be able to add textboxes. Release date is expected in december.

For now, you cannot import a dialogue file to which you have added textboxes.

Done.
When DMK XP 4.9 find that a dialog have more than x lines , it splits the dialog into several text boxes.

You will not have to worry about dialogs with 3 or more lines. If you need 3 or 4 lines, just write them and it will be ok. No need to add code. The dialogs will be splitted when SenorKaffee will convert the files to RMXP (Step 4 in DMK).

But don't put 3 lines dialogs right now. I will synchronize with SenorKaffee to take the current work and update the dialogs file to the new version.
I'm currently crash testing DMK XP 4.9 before sending it to SenorKaffee.

Thanks for your help :)
That is great support, coming here to help us!

Personally, i will mark translation parts where i need more lines, so that when the program is ready, i will convert it.
Thanks!
