heh, interesting quest. Though I would ask you to create a new topic for quests or quest packs, with an appropriate title (see the quests forum). Thanks!

Ok, will move it. I posted it here to ask the questions, so that OP could see what I mean.

  • Is it possible to have bold text for spells? (I think I saw it in an "original" quest)
  • Why is the wandering monster icon misplaced? It should be "WMitQ: icon monstername"


About the Bold text option is difficult to put it on because the drawing text functions of windows does not help. The length of text is getting bigger for some pixels and the width of line can pass the limits with strange results. This is the reason why sometimes it crashes, and you should save your work before every redraw. I am afraid I won’t try to debug it for now, even that a new version is already finished with better resolution for more quality printing.

But I’ve follow the original layout. There are nowhere Bold texts in the Notes section on the original booklets. And also the monster icon is always at the left of the WMitQ label. Check this out.

Now I am working on an eDeck program where you can create your own cards by using HQ Card Maker, and by putting them in a folder you can have a custom deck of treasure cards in your pc, with some basic functions as “draw card”, “shuffle”, “remove card and shuffle”, “Load” and “Save” state. In the future I want to make it for cell phones too.

No text formatting is possible, even italic, and the reason is the same. Even with no formatting and it have crushes on the text functions of windows (something with the fonts works wrong, because with Arial fonts all works fine, but I am afraid I don’t have the time to fix it).

The link for HQ Quest Maker leads to a 0.0MB file. I would really love to download and use this tool. Has it been moved?

Thanks!

Just made my first quest using this and it worked like a charm. Never even crashed once. You won't be seeing the quest any time soon though as I am hoping to use it in a play by post first. :D
Very awesome program!

I finally installed the all-in-one icon pack for Heroscribe, and I'm ready to make some Quests!

Patroclus, do you by any chance have an updated link for HQ Quest Maker?
