A quick question: is editing map data using the find / replace function of a program like Notepad ++ safe?
(For example to replace the name of an actor in messages or to replace all occurrences of a common event with another)

yes and no

if done correctly it would be save, but it is not easy to do everything correctly.

For example replacing a name in messages should be save - although not needed for actors, because you can already use text codes for actor name placeholders, that is a better method.
Changing IDs can become much more critical and will require more care to make sure it is done correctly.

only try this with a lot of backups to correct mistakes.

Wish I had a better means of taking screenshots...
Map is 148x98

concept: zombie slayer fest.

Lag because of outdated hardware.

Lots todo:
-Terrax lightning should have another step for the flashlight, between up down left right.
-Also Online mv from Nelderson should emit the flashlight from the other player.
-Animation needed for killing the zombie...
Before adding it to #crypchania.
Working on a case. Get all the evidence to prosecute some bad guys. :kaojoy:
But, the game development schedule delayed. :kaoswt2:
The moral of the story: No good deed goes unpunished... I guess...
Except that, nothing to see here. :kaoswt2:
just beat ff7 original for the first time since 2010. having played remake last year, I have a much better appreciation for the original oddly enough. I still like some of the character presentation in remake more, but the original's got a lot going for it.
