Problem with levels.txt entry file

Post by hellfreezer » Sun Feb 24, 2019 8:43 am

I am modding the den of evil quest and I am having trouble with the entry file for the den. I made a new dc6 and put it in data/local/ui/eng/act1 and I named it A1L41.dc6. I change the *entryfile* column in levels.txt for the den of evil from A1L9 to A1L41, however it still shows "Entering The Den Of Evil" I'm not sure how this is even possible considering that if I change the *entryfile* column for the Rogue Encampment to my new file it shows up just fine. I saw another thread where someone had this issue with the tower in act 1 and it made me wonder about them both being quest locations, but nobody ever answered or posted if there was a solution found. Has anyone had this same problem or know what the issue could be?

EDIT: Found it in an old code editing thread thanks to jessedazebra, it's hardcoded to A1Q1.dc6. All i did was copy my new file i had placed in data/local/ui/eng/act1 and rename it to A1Q1.

It looks like haven't loaded your changes.
try to load this with -direct -txt.

I am using -direct -txt. As an update I used my new file for the den of evil and cave level 1 (den of evil after quest complete.) It shows the file after the quest is finished but during the quest it still shows the Den of Evil entry file. This isn't making any sense, I am wondering if the entry file is over ridden by another file but I haven't been able to locate anything.

I think there might be some hardcoded stuff, I remember there was something related to Den of Evil in Whist's code edits compilation for 1.13c.

Yeah, I can't find any other possible reason, I wonder if anyone found a code fix for it, I'll look around. Thank you.
I found it, edited original post.

When you complete the quest, the den gets renamed, so while the quest is active it uses the hardcoded files, once it completes it reverts to the txt values iirc. I can dig up the edit later if no one else posts it.
