I apologize in advance for what may have already been answered, as I am new to this. I recently found this post and wanted to give it a try.

After downloading the HQ Quest Maker size and trying to run the application. I received an error message stating I needed a .NET Framework.

My question is this, do I need a specific version of the .NET Framework or would this program run fine on the newest version.

Again my apologies for asking this but I am new to a lot of this stuff and trying to learn. I appreciate any help or direction. Thanks

I didn't have any problem with the Framework, it didn't ask me anything.
The real problem is that I can create my page but I don't see any export button.
EDIT: I've realized now that when you hit the SAVE button it automatically creates 2 files, one is a .ini wich is the text of the notes and the second one is the PNG.
Anyway, is there any chance that I could make my own stats image and import it into the program?

New to these forums as member, but a few weeks already that I had downloaded HeroScribe and HQ Quest Maker, wonderful tools.

I have begun the process to digitally record the ~60 quests I have composed while younger (some of them, you know, when reading the quest line, give me this vicarious shame of myself, weird feeling ;)).

Thing is, I put treasures/traps/secrets in almost every room and I have a lot of Notes. And when I fill them all with HQ Quest Maker, they get "stacked" in the page and/or not being displayed. Same goes for special mobs:

(Please don't mind the French, and for those understanding, the poor quality of the text, I was 15 when I wrote this :mrgreen:)

So you see ? The notes G / H are completely "swallowed", but the system recognized they do exist, as the right column displays the end of note I and the J.

And special mobs stats are stacked and not displayed correctly either.

Is there any way to "extend" the Notes section to a longer page, or to a second one? |_P

As far as I know, you cannot. I believe that program limited your notes to a certain length.

That's too bad, because the program is otherwise excellent in all points! :?

you cant... sorry.
This is a (stupid) reason why I am not a fan of quests with a lot of notes and description.
I suggest you to create a page 2 with the rest of the notes, with same map and same intro.
When you'll print them you will print on its rear side.

Good suggestion!
Problem is that I'd need 3 pages easily, if 2/3 of the page is taken by the map and the quest text ;)

I created a template for the program Pages (on the Mac) that allows me to drop in a map and the quest notes somewhat quickly. It doesn't look exactly like the HQ quests, but it sufficed for all the quests I updated. You could do the same thing with most any word processing software.

I agree. I try to use MS Publisher for my first tries, it went quite well.

What I really love in HQ Quest Maker, is the whole "ini file loading" process, and filling out text in a form resulting in a completely formatted document.

Anyway, thanks for your info everyone!
