RE: TUTORIAL: How to make a readable note

Is it possible that there is probably something wrong with my actual level such as the note itself, and not the stuff in the extra_english.lang file?

Are you supposed to have something to do with the note in the hps file aswell as the lang file?

Or if Neurological's tutorial does that then nevermind.

Tick the box that says "open note in journal" on the entity tab for your note. Easy! Big Grin

No, .lang file is only for in-game messages including Notes

EVERYONE TRY THE .LANG EDITOR IT WILL HELP YOU OKAY!

I'm not sure if you're aware of this, but the question you tried to answer was from 2012. It's not relevant anymore.

Stuff like this needs to be added to the wiki because in here it will rapidly be lost among all the other threads.

Couldn't we have a section solely dedicated to articles like this on the forum, aside from the regular help on development. A sub-forum dedicated specifically to tutorials would be awesome and keep the helpful posts from slipping into oblivion.

I would love to see someone put together a series on building efficient maps. Smile

RE: TUTORIAL: How to make a readable note

Isn't that what Development Articles is for? How-to's and guides, right?
