As long as you adhere to the syntax exactly, it shouldn't be a problem. There are more constraints in the syntax because, while they are just regular header files, the message editor doesn't use the compiler parser to read them when it loads them (partially due to performance issues, and partially due to needing to parse the comments in addition to the code - for instance to disambiguate nouns and cases, which are in the same file). But if you generate them correctly, it shouldn't be a problem.

Thank, that's what I figured but it doesn't hurt to ask.

Can I request a way to export 65535.map as a patch file? I can't seem to find a way to locate it in the resources. I'm guessing it's the kind of thing that remains hidden and works behind the scenes. It would aid in my ideas for Sierra game patches.

I know SCI2 isn't really supported, but a great many of the views in Larry 6 are interestingly broken. A quick look at SQ6 and KQ7 shows they're both working fine. As one example, here's the handcuffs as seen in SV and in Companion, and the actual view as a case study.

I guess that's the hi-res version of LSL6? I don't think I ever tested that, as I don't have it. Thanks for the bug report!

I guess I could list them in another tab view (with appropriate warnings if someone tries to delete one), then you could do all the normal things with them.

What happens if you try "extract all resources"? Does it output map files? I forget.

Tis indeed the hi-res version, and I totally understand you not having it -- it was quite difficult to get a copy!

Let me know if you need any files from it. Then again it is not that hard to find it. Besides the stand alone versions it was in the collections past the Hits and Misses.

Was. It's now om GOG; I got it because I had to help someone around these parts with something. :-)

No, unfortunately it doesn't.

Well, if you're adding any audio, then the audiocache folder should be generated, and you'll find the map files in there.

I noticed that the aspect ratio preference is stored in the registry. It might make more sense to store this on a per game basis. If you want to work on an existing Sierra game the aspect ratio should be on to have the graphics displayed as they were intended with aspect correction on, but for new games it should be for however the developer intended. Aspect off would, of course, allow the developer to make his graphics more wide screen friendly.  If this setting was stored in the game.ini it would be on a per game basis. The registry setting could remain as the the default. I would think that this change should not be that hard nor be likely to break anything.

If it was in the game.ini I could also add reading this game info to both the NSIS Publisher and SEQTool plugins to have them automatically switch the aspect ratio setting to match the current project.

Throw my two cents in,  I could add an aspect checkbox to SCILauncher. Which would probably involve manipulating the dosbox.conf that comes with it, but I already have a cross-platform solution for that.
