This is a very good guide. I used this to fix some massive bugs in the Jailbreak map I am working on. I just need to do the panerama view. which i haven't got around to.
Thanks for writing the guide Mych.

RavuAlHemio has written up a nice tutorial on making voice packs (http://www.planetjailbreak.com/jdn/Making_Voice_Packs). (I've edited the first posting to reflect that.)

Oh, and Mych, thanks for reviewing the tutorial and making it blend in with the rest... Next time I write a tutorial in the JDN, I will try to do as well as possible ;)

That means, if I ever write a tutorial again.

I guess I will, I'll just have to find a good topic ;)

Since the Jailbreak site has been moved we no longer hav the JDN :(

Can we get this fixed?
