What's wrong with it? You can move the text so it's not behind the head. Or do you mean that there's the "menu" and "retry" buttons there?

It looks like you tested it from the editor. That temporarily adds the Menu button because it doesn't know it's an island.

I did test it on the level editor in this picture, but when I edited the xml bin for the chapter It had missing images and the forth level crashed and not all the scene was there

Wrong forum section. Moved.

Check the resources for the missing images. When does the fourth level crash, by clicking the button or loading the level? As for hte scene, maybe you forgot to change the scenebounds for the island.

but there is no missing images and the scene was fine on the level editor

What about editing mapworldview

Joined: 02/20/2011

are you trying to make a chapter six? world of goo code doesn't allow it, make sure only to override chapter 1.

You can see in the picture he linked to that his chapter is called Chapter 1. Although he could still be trying to make island6.xml, so maybe you're right.

Listen, billy2000 you may don't even know how to make chapters and dunno what to write in addin.xml text.aml and island.xml. The cause of the chappter would be that your chapter opens as level in the original chapter 1 if so then you got lot to learn - even I do but I just don't know what to put in island.xml and what changes do I need for addin.xml and text.xml

You can learn, wiki's case is not general, you might want to check the Chapters and Islands guide:

Don't give up since more is likely to be added to this page.

But what do you mean not general? I could not give him information of the chapter making because I don't know it by myself! I did told him that he can learn but he must HAVE to learn to know - that's what I said if you misunderstood, momo:

Well, it's quite an obvious statement, you ought to point him to a solution rather than telling him he is unable to make a Chapter.

No, I didn't mention that - he CAN make a chapter if he learns Wink

So you mean the chapter is ready and you can put it in goofans? But what was the problem?

Joined: 12/29/2008

I don't think he's done with the whole thing. Just the island map.

Does it come up with errors or just randomly close? Puzzled

Also, for posting a brand new chapter, you can't use the level editor to make the goomod files. You have to compile them and merge them and write them by hand... It's tedious and very hard. But persist and you'll get it. Just like it took me 5 months to get mine working! Smile
