New Books

Post by Ostar » Tue May 12, 2020 6:37 pm

I have added new books from TESLore using the DFTools utility DFBOOEDT-En.
However, placing them in the Books folder in StreamingAssets does not seem to put them in the game.

In fact, the StreamingAssets/Books folder does not seem to work at all.
As a test, I have modified existing books (for example BOK00001.TXT), changing the name, author and actual text. No change was observed in game, at least for the displayed title & author in stores.
Then I modified them in the arena2/Books folder found in the Daggerfall install to match the Streaming Assets/Books folder file, again to no apparent change in game.

This was all before starting a new game of course. Twice.

Is there some DFUnity cache I need to clear for the changes to show?
I am using 10.23, upgraded recently from 10.22.

To add a book to be registered, you also need to create a Mapping file. It's explained on the main page here:

An example of what part of such a JSON file can look like:
