How to start using Knytt Plus editor?
« on: June 07, 2021, 17:42:05 »
Hey all, I've decided to start making a new map on Knytt Plus and everything seems to be working with the new UI, however in the editor some options are missing in the script reference such as the new triggers, dialogue options and other script-related things. Am I missing something?

Hey, I assume you're referred to Knytt Stories Plus? In this case, you need to make sure your level is set to Format 4 - in your script, look for the following at the top:

[World]
Name=
Author=
Description=
Category A=
Category B=
Difficulty A=
Difficulty B=
Difficulty C=
Size=
Format=4 - Set this to '4'!

That tells the editor that it's dealing with a KS+ level, and so it activates the extra features, as well as blocking it from running on vanilla KS.

You should also make sure you've downloaded the most recent version of the KS+ website from egomassive's website and are you're using instead of the default editor, though it sounds like you're already doing that.

What Talps said about the format is correct. In addition to that, you may want to start a new level with the Level Editor Plus and choose the KS+ option over the Original KS option. This will create a default level with special info.png and info+.png images as well as adding all the different folders needed for custom assets. You can then copy the things you need to the level you've been working on.
