I am attempting an edit to images.tbl, for the purpose of adding a new .grp file to the list. I've tried to open it with several .tbl editors but all of them have an issue opening it, as well as any other .tbl file from Starcraft, throwing an error saying that the file is corrupt.

Haven't seen too many details around on how to edit those, but reading some people's posts it seems like there's a pretty simple way of doing so, I feel like I'm just missing a small detail here.

Have you tried TblPad?



None.

ALL PRAISE YOUR SUPREME LORD CORBO

images.tbl is not something you can edit via tblpad or tbl editor as such.

You want to add a new image to the images table in the iscript, I guess.

While I don't think you can add new entries with any iscript editor out there I believe this is what Farty was doing, an image expander so you could add new entries.

What TBL editor are you using? I can open images.tbl just fine in TBLPad.

You can edit the tbls just fine to add more images, just not (normally) to dat files.

@DirectShift, thank you this actually worked! For whatever reason the other 3 .tbl editors I tried (all downloaded from SC modding sites, all more recent than TBLpad) had the same issue.

@Corbo, I feared as such myself but as it turns out you can actually edit images.tbl with TBLpad. What I'm doing is adding a new .grp to my .mpq and using DatEdit to assign it to an image in images.dat, a new entry in images.tbl simply allows me to specify the new .grp to images.dat. While I have been working with Farty's .dat extender, no new entries in either images.dat or iscript are needed for this (because I am overwriting an unused image and iscript entry).

Oh_Man shouted: No it has been 11 for as long as I can remember. Source: my shuttle menu system
You're right, it has always been 11. I had looked at one of my old maps where I have used 12 or 13 lines of text (with those extra lines being blank) and so assumed it must've been 12 before... but I guess I was redundant back then. Just fired up 1.16.1 now and checked first-hand, and it's indeed 11. lil-Inferno
lil-Inferno shouted: 12 is for when you want to clear the text on the screen imo
Oh_Man
Oh_Man shouted: No 11 will also clear the text, 12 is just a redundant extra line
I think you need 12 lines if the last line is blank, else the game won't read it as a new line (unless you use a newline control character instead, I guess).

I feel like anyone who said they did a somewhat complex match in regex knows what they're doing and that whatever it is couldn't be with simple tools.

lil-Inferno shouted: Can't you just find and replace lmao
I needed a way to get all of a certain players triggers.. If I just find and replace I would of gotten rid of the triggers. I needed to duplicate them. Since the triggers were out of order I couldn't just copy a certain portion.
