I found it in data.pak:

Quote:
/MapObjects/Neutral/Crystal_Dragon.(AdvMapMonsterShared).xdb


and its ID is CREATURE_UNKNOWN

I don't know if it's useless to know.

Anyway, all radar's creature_id are smallest than 300.

and one of my theory about ncf editor is that's crash with slot 300 and high.

Try to use ncf editor with one of your new creatures by using any unused slot smallest than 300.

I successfully placed Mysto Dragon on one of my map and it worked fine.

However, after days of further experiments with unusual numbers and combinations map doesn't open at all, returning an error. I'm pretty stuck with it and don't know what to do... erase the last changes manually?

I think you will not have the choice.

to re-open your map without bug you must edit "map.xdb" and remove all items which risk to
make a bug.

Probably, just "AdvMapMonster" item.

Remove "AdvMapMonster" Item with a "MonsterShared" tag which referecing a NCF creature,
or ...replace this reference by another creature as peasant or whanever...

Surly not all. Just them with editor crashs.

Then, be care to make a backup of your map before to retest anything.

MystoDragon works fine in the editor with its creature_id CREATURE_383 ?

Yes it does for me. Someone should extend the limit in the exe.

I thought that was done

When sfidanza has released its framework 1.1, the limit slot in "H5_Game.NCF.exe" was 499.
So, logically, the same limit must appear in .exe ncf editor..


I will check it.

btw, this afternoon my game crashed because I tried to include a creature icon in .tga instead of .dds.

mapmaker icons of ncf creatures are in .tga. I have no idea for the official creatures.

Why this question?

if we hacked game's exe to have 499 slots of creatures,
to update to version 1.1,
Why not hacked too the editor's for same quantity?

Isn't logic?

I may be wrong but I think NCF editor 3.0 is hacked for 499 too even if it crashs

I've released an alternate (less strong) version of the dragon.
