How to Create GameTips!


Today, we'll learn how to do this : http://static.mmo-champion.com/mmoc/images/news/2010/august/load_kalimdor.jpg
Yes, it's a Gametip, maybe later I'll teach you about loadingscreens, who knows ;) ?

Summary

  • Required tools
  • Gametips.dbc editing
  • Patch creation
  • Ingame result
  • Bonus

Looks like it's time to gear up !

- Gametips.dbc
- My DbcEditor
- MPQ Editor
- Your WoW client

I say a little tip for youuu... ♫

Open Gametip.dbc

Quick explanation :
First column : Tips ID
Second column : Tip content
Third column : dunno troll.png

Information : My client is frFR, so my tips are written in French, don't worry, except the text, the concept is the same !

Create your new line, here is my example :

1 : ID, must be unique, mine is 510.
2 : |cffffd100Astuce :|r : It means the word "Astuce" (means trick) will be colored in Gold. I call the color through |cffffd100 and I close my color by |r.

After, here's my text :

Le seul moyen de devenir l'ami de Hyakkimaru c'est de lui payer une pinte !

Result :

We are finished !

Next ! To the patch !

But... Where in my patch ?!

I assume you know how to create a MPQ patch. So, open your MPQ with MPQ Editor !

If they don't exist, create this folder at the root :
DBFilesClient

I don't know if it's necessary but don't hesitate to put your dbc in serverside.

Next !

Show me ! Show me ! Show me !

Apparently, it works  :)

This tutorial is finished, but I give you one more advice !

The show must go on

"Hyakki-master, your gold is terrible ! I want an other color !"

An other color ? OK ! Here's your gift !
