Editor Question

Recommended Posts

When you save a level it is saved as a .c2m map file, but I can't find a way to create a set of multiple levels and manage them as with Chip Edit for CC1. Is this possible at the moment?

Put all of your custom levels in a single folder and place that folder in the games/ folder within your CC2 path. It should be next to the folder named 'cc2'. From the cc2 folder, copy the 'playcc2.c2g' file and the 'title' file into your new folder. Edit both of them in Notepad, it's pretty self-explanatory what you need to replace. Rename the playcc2.c2g to play_____.c2g where the _____ is the name of your folder. If you did everything right it will show up in CC2 when you select the `Load Level Set' option in the menu. Hope this helps!

This is the only way to make a levelset right now; there is no way to manage one within the editor.

With the newest update, you no longer need to edit the `title' file, just change the name of your game in the playcc2.c2g

Thanks! I've run into a problem though. I followed those steps and the game crashes when I load the set unless I copy "save.c2h" into the new folder as well. Copying the file though seems to carry over the score from my CC2 playthrough while I hope to keep the two scores separate. Am I missing something?

My game was crashing on a certain level of my set, and it was because I didn't define anything in "Properties". In fact, I did define stuff in "Properties" but then forgot to save before closing. That's the only crash I've gotten.

I thought I'd ask a question here too. How exactly do the counter gates work when they're adjacent to each other? I have two counter gates adjacent to each other from top to down. When a signal is sent to the south input of the counter gate below, both gates function as one number while decreasing. But when a signal is sent to either east input of the gates, only that number is increased and both gates do not function as one number. Is there a way to do this?

the S input is the decrement, the E input is the increment. The W output (increment overflow) fires a single pulse when the digit wraps UP from 9 to 0. The N output (decrement overflow) gives a solid output when the digit wraps DOWN from 0 to 9, and stays on until it counts down to 8.

In your case with two stacked digits (00) you decrement the lower to 9 and thus it fires the N output which causes the upper digit to decrement to 9. So, you go from 00 to 99. If you do it again, you can count down to 98, 97, 96, etc.
 

Using the increment counter on vertically stacked digits will only affect that digit, because the increment overflow goes to the west and is unused. See my level 26 `PROCESS IMPROVEMENT' for an example of a count-up/count-down clock that uses both the increment and decrement functions on the same set of digits.

Hope this helps :)

Thanks Joshua! Your explanation makes a ton of sense. Seems complicated to make a counter with two digits that can count up, I'll take a look at your level and see if I can come to any conclusions :P
