I was thinking about maybe writing a very basic "Subscreens 101" tutorial, since I can't seem to find one,anywhere, and it seems like subscreen design is a bit of a weak point for a lot of new people, specifically, how to use various elements on the subscreen, custom triforce items, new items and item order, and how to make new subscreens from scratch. But, before I start anything, I want to know if there would be a demand for it. And if so, what kinds of things do you guys feel are important to make sure I include?

Actually there is a tutorial for subscreens though it is rather old and perhaps not completely applicable to ZQuest 2.50.1. Here is the link: http://www.purezc.ne...showtopic=21968

Oh, hey, that looks pretty good. Never mind, then.

That tutorial is seriously out of date. I don't think any part of the subscreen editor crashes ZQuest any more. It doesn't go into detail on much, and it's entirely missing one of the more obtuse (yet useful) subscreen elements, life and magic gauge pieces.

 

Not to mention it's stickied in the Quest Design Help subforum where no one will ever find it. I think a newer tutorial that doesn't gloss over everything and includes images and such would be very worthwhile.

I don't see anything wrong with Davi's tutorial, but having another take wouldn't be bad at all. I'd say go ahead and give it a shot if you're interested. :)

Ok, well, I finally finished writing it. I'll get to posting it, soon enough. Once I've finished proofreading, that is.

The auto-merging is kinda screwing it up,it won't let me post the rest of the tutorial. I had tried to put it in multiple posts, that way I could hyperlink the table of contents to each section, but because of the auto-merging, it isn't letting me post the last two sections because of the number of images.
