MeckMeck, I'm sorry that I didn't get the Illumination out in time for your 21st deadline. I got a little behind with things.

You may start to work on your wishes now. The assigned wishes are now fixed (were 2 days over the given deadline after all and I want you to have enough time to do the wishes without timepressure).

@Erik: No problem.

Opps. Go away for a little bit, and find out I end up having to make an avatar. I'll try, but I am incapable of using even MSPAINT well.

So far, it's looking better than I thought.

EDIT: How large is an Avatar again? I'll need to know so I can finish the WORLD'S BEST PAINTING the avatar. Despite my total lack of any art tools save Paint, it looks better than usual.

EDIT of previous EDIT: Mental note, read help before making a slash.

The maximum size of an avatar on the caravel forums is 100 pixels across (X) by 60 pixels up (Y).

I have downloaded and open this collection:

I think "ArchitectsNotes(13).doc" should be #16 not #13. Or at least it seems to be what was requested by #16. There is a #13 hold, which matches and the doc is about getting better at DROD which was the request of #16. And the doc does refer to the hold. Maybe the person did two requests. Or, as I now realise there were two requests for developing better skills. (I am leaving this paragraph here so others don't make the same assumptions I did. Sorry MeckMeck GRE for thinking there was a mistake)

I also looks like the "avatar picture of a red serpent to use in a DROD hold" #9 might be in the .rar of #15 unless that is part of the #15 hold.

I need help with how to install the files for Technology(10) and DROD Secret Santa(15).rar. I assume you have to put them in TCB somewhere but I don't know where.

Also I had a link to an online version of my webpage but because I wrote it in the thread it was not included. Now I have figured out I should have included a text file in the zipfile instead of in the thread but it is to late to fix it, so here it is under the secret tag, if you do not want to know which one was mine do not open the secret tag:

I claim responsibility for #10 and the lack of help associated with it.

To install the Technology style:

On a Macinotosh
========
1. Right-click your TCB application and select "Show Package Contents".
2. Go to Contents/Resources/Data/Bitmaps.
3. Install the given bitmaps and .tim file in the Bitmaps folder.

On a Windows
============
I'm not sure how to access the Bitmaps folder on a Windows machine, but do something similar to the steps above.

Once the bitmaps and .tim file are installed, add the following lines to the Graphics section of your drod.ini file (wherever that may be located):
Technology=Technology
Style=Technology


You may also want to add some music options in the Songs portion of the drod.ini file to correspond to this style, if you want music playing while in a room of this style (well, other than whatever was previously playing)

I claim resposibility for #15. The avatar picture is not for #9, but I had requested #9 in the hopes of getting a better picture.

I believe that to get the hold to work, you simply must make sure that the NPC's custom tilesets are pointing to the correct jpeg's. This is my first NPC I have ever created, and I will try to improve on it when I have time.

Ok found the subdir on the windows system and the .ini file but what do I do with this file? .DS_Store

I put it under bitmaps is that right?
