you forgot to say that the name of the files must have NO spaces between any word, or the locator will have "20%" sign and be invalid

anyway nice tutorial, it will be usefull to RPG novices ;)

nice, but it's "dont make spaces between the name when you upload the file" not when you make the locator ^^

When having to make over 140 locators for Kryw I found that making all by hand was very tedious. So I looked around and found Z-loc creator: http://el.chistos.free.fr/imgTM/Z-locInstallator.exe
The program is in french but very simple. Just select the file you want to make a .loc for and specify the URL. Should spare some time ;)

Just so I understand this then. The locator I create (pointing to a file on the net somewhere) is automatically saved
into the tracks .gbx file.
Now when someone d/l's my track from TMX, the sounds will be downloaded from the net by the game?
Is that right?
Loads of mods, loads of tracks. Look em up. :)

If the link in the loc file is correct, yes :-)

if your pic isn't a jpg but a png, it's png.loc, no?

would probably be useful too to add :)

I am sorry for this but I do not know. I guess something did not work quite well by the transfering to the new board and now you cannot see the tutorial. Unfortunately I do not have it on my computer as well..

Hope you can find a decent working link uploader for dds files.
