    Item TileWidth and TileHeight set via Item Editor

    To change an item's tilewidth or height right now, you have to use a script. Not only that, but it seems to revert to 1 x 1 unless that is set every frame.

    Having an option in the item editor would make this much easier to do.

    You mean for weapon->Tile* ? That seems like it would take some work, mostly because it would require changing the sprite editor, and the item editor, and meshing the changes.

    This seems plausible though, and it would be even better for the enemy editor, which seems like it would be less complicated to add this sort of thing.

    Not weapon->Tile. Item->TileWidth and TileHeight can be adjusted, but they resist it very strongly.
    I can provide an example quest if that helps clarify what I'm taling about.

    Example quest would be lovely.

    Is there any chance of a change in behavior breaking old quests?

    I've got one ready... but I actually discovered making it that the only problem seems to come whenever you try to hold up an item.

    When the item is made by the script as it's properties are set up right, it will attain a larger than 1 x 1 size and keep that until picked up.

    Naturally, the subscreen doesn't support graphics for this larger item; but when you set it where it will be held up when acquired (by setting anitem->Pickup|=IP_HOLDUP), it reverts back to the 1 x 1 graphics while being held up.

    So, this isn't quite the same glitch that I thought that it was. Should I rename the topic title to match? Also, do you want the script included with the new test quest, a link to a pastebin of it or for me to put it in the topic directly?
