*Positive value: 2 (this will increase the box from where you have added the second special box).

Pops and PopPad info were taken directly from Kingpins find in this thread:


Roofs pop and popadd explained


I am sure that part needs to be rewritten in this fileguide, but that thread had me confused as hell





The Logicals discovery was found by Go][um in this thread:


Making walls go transparent?





I think that covers the major lvlprest functions, as the rest are never mentioned. Hopefully someone knows the missing 3/any corrections and we can add this to the finished pile icon_wink.gif






Edit: Discovered the purpose of 'FillBlanks' column icon_cool.gif


Edit 2: After looking more and verifying what I thought, got the Populate column figured out icon_biggrin.gif


Edit 3: Added some info to Populate column, formatted a bit.. now on to figuring out KillEdge icon_wink.gif


Edit 4: typo
