    What else is different with the new DromED?

    Now I got the new Dromed... and although the editor is in the state I remember, there were some nasty surprised.

    The first thing I noticed that light_bright command wasn't working well in game mode. It took me 15 minutes to find out that there's a new command: toggle_lighting.

    The next nasty surprise was when I tried to create a starting point. It turned out it doesn't work!!! The marker was placed correctly, Playerfactory link was correct... so what was wrong?

    Turned out I have some stupid setting Persistent position turned on...

    I wonder what else should I expect?

    persistent_player_pos has always been in dromed although it wasn't turned on automatically in the past. When you are editing your mission and you want to look at the work you have just done in game mode its helpful if you don't have to start at the starting point every time. The release_notes.txt file included in nd-t2-1-25.zip has a list of changes by version.

    Read modders_notes (ND1.26/new_dark.zip/doc) to get informations about the editor.

    @BT - If you're restarting with Dromed after being away for a while, nicked's tutorial is a good place to start for a refresher. And it covers both of the topics you mentioned in the OP.

    Thanks I already knew about the link, this is how I installed DromEd - via Tafferpatcher. But I'll surely check other resources.

    There are so, so, so, so many improvements for you to discover, I couldn't possibly list them all here off the top of my head.

    If this thread is any indication, every improvement will be "stupid" and a "nasty surprise" to him because it's not what he's used to.

    Old habits die hard... Plus, I'm lazy.

    And I was never able to complete my transition to T3ED or the Dark Mod

    I'll add that this thread, while it focuses on commands, you will get to know the features of the new dromed as a lot of them are mentioned here.

    I installed TafferPatcher 1.26 and DromEd crashes when I try to start it. Is there a thread on installing DromEd with TafferPatcher?

    The new DromEd doesn't turn on persistent_player_pos by default, you must have installed some editor pack or other utility that changed that.

    it should run right out of the box (that's pretty much the point) - I think I remember you've mentioned tampering with the install, my suggestion would be to not do that.

    I installed Dromed from Tafferpatcher 1.26 and it starts but there are no menus. Where might I find and install some Dromed tools for this version?

    then something went wrong/you did something wrong. again, is this a fresh, untampered install of the game?

    Yeah, installing the Toolkit properly did the trick.

    I am getting some errors even though Dromed works.

    Set light_bright to 1
    persistent_player_pos=0
    toggle_book_autoreload=1

    The first three below come up in a dialog box when I start Dromed. When I load one of my old missions I get the same thing plus list pertaining to some old custom objects. I'm guessing the three list below are just settings somewhere that I'm missing but I've never had them with older versions of Dromed. I'm running Tafferpatcher 1.26 on a fresh T2 install from discs.

    Set light_bright to 1
    persistent_player_pos=0
    toggle_book_autoreload=1

    Have you looked at the indicated textures to see what is wrong with them?

    It also looks like you have a wonky script reference to Z╫☺ε.osm

    I suggest you drop all scripts and reload them one by one.

    Dromed also needs to be run with FMselect if you want to edit fan missions.
