I can need your help!

Open DKC Edit v3 and find out what all the objects are.
Have a look on the screenshot:
Image
The red squares are the objects. They are numbered (#0, #1, #2, ...). That is only the number of object in that level.
Important is the number under it (F16F, 9A5D, ...). That says what kind of object it is (Kritter, banana, ...).
Play the game, when finding objects, look it up which object number it has and take notes.
After that either submit them here in this topic of PM me, but first take a look to this page, to be sure, that yours aren't already known.

Half the hexes in the sprite file are either nothing, or they freeze the camera, so why even translate them? Why not take Giagurgolo's sprite list and reformat it so it works with DKedit?

I tried it and it seems to work so far, so I guess the sprites are pretty much translated then! :mrgreen:

Too many of them are not working. They are all working fine till "0x97F3 purple Klaptrap (stationary)".
The others are anywhere wrong.

For example the arrow sign: in his list it has got the number FBD7, whereas it is really FBD3. A different by 4 (FBD7-4=FBD3, but I'm not sure if that is true to everything there). Maybe you can test it yourself.

That DKedit message is a confirmation message that says it was saved. The "Bad ROM" thing happened to me too, but there's nothing wrong with it. Maybe it's doing that because it's a hacked ROM.

I think now, there wouldn't be a problem. I thought that because I had a problem: enemies appeared suddenly when they was in the middle of the screen, and they hit DK.
Now I know that the object number must have the same order as the X position.

Is a bad rom because the checksum test failed:

viewtopic.php?f=37&t=496#p8763

You did nothing wrong when hacking... the emulator just recognizes the rom as incorrect because its info is not in the place it should be.

It may be a little bit late to be pointing this out, but Golden Kritters are used in Rope Bridge Rumble. You can find one just after the halfway barrel.

For me these aren't really gold Kritters... they are more like brown, or orange to me.

They are probably functions that are specific to those levels, but can be called from any level (E/G. each level has a pointer to one of these fuctions). I assume each function will customize the level in some specific way.

How do you use them? they never seem to be used in dkEdit. The drop-down menu is always blank.

I just kept it like what google translated it (in latin letters). It may mean "Continue Barrel" or better "Checkpoint". You can change it in the file if you are sure that it means that.

What are the yellow "start" squares for? You can move it by using the "X??" and "Y??" fields in that level property editor, but no matter where you put it, it doesn't do anything. Nor do the functions.

No, it's not a version 4 update. It's usually out of screen, but in "Jungle Hijinx (from bonus 1)" (its level byte is 08) the start block is right above the Rambi crate.

I edited the position of the start block in Jungle Hijinx, so that it would show up on screen:

EDIT: I didn't know that the files in the "Source" folder could be opened with notepad. Are they the files that name labels (which show up as ?s)? Can they be translated?

You should be able to translate it. But it doesn't change anything in the program. You have to compile the whole source to get a new program, that is translated. I think, Simion32 could tell you more about it, because the source seems to be c++.

Just a heads-up, dkEdit04 has been released. I don't see anything different, though... :|

Most likely you would have to recompile the whole program, yes. Of course, you would need the same compiler to do so, which seems to be Borland C++ or something like that. I use Dev-C++ so I can't just throw it into a .dev project and recompile it.

There's no source folder, and it won't even start. It says "CG32.dll wasn't found". :? The CNF file you uploaded yesterday worked though, it had a source folder.

I'm using the previous one and it's working great. :D The only thing that isn't working right is I can't see the list on the right of the sprite, camera, and banana editor.

I am sure that it should work now but if not I will try to trace it back to the start.

To see the banana, camera and other windows drag and resize the window by clicking and holding the edge.

It works now.

Just a few questions:
What are 'Bonus Flags'?
What does 'Pointer Edit' do and what is a pointer?
How does the 'Special Stage' feature work?
What is the 'Export' and 'Import' feature for, and how come when you click export it makes another window that can't be closed?

What does 'Pointer Edit' do and what is a pointer?

I really have'nt looked into this much, so I cant help you there.

How does the 'Special Stage' feature work?

I think it has somthing to do with the bonus'es but I'm not sure.

What is the 'Export' and 'Import' feature for,

That exports the current stage without altering the rom, it allow's you to alter everything so when your done it you can just save your rom when ready, or you can later update the level without having to re-alter the rom.
Import puts the data you altered/exported back on the stage.

how come when you click export it makes another window that can't be closed?

Which Window?

You do know what a pointer is don't you? I hear that sometimes on the forums, but I don't know what it is.

The entire program. It's not doing it anymore, so something must of went wrong when I first did it.

You can't. Adding sprites would increase the game's memory, which every last byte of is used up.
