  • Instructions


    • Use the green arrows to navigate within previously selected entitites.
    • Click on an entity to see its properties (window) and events linked to it (icons).
    • Double click an event icon to show the script triggered by the event.
    • Right click the background to show visual settings.
    • '$=' is a special operator:
      A $= B <=> A = B ? T:A <=> A is set to true if B is true, otherwise A is unchanged.
      A $= B1, A $= B2, A $= Bn <=> A = true if one or more Bn is true.


    • Gray : an object with no event attached
    • Green : an object with one or more event linked to it
    • Yellow : a zone
    • Cyan : an exit
    • Red : a room
    • Purple : the current selected entity

  • Prerequisite

    All required game files are included in the viewer.

    Cadaver Viewer is written in C# and needs the Microsoft Framework .NET 3.5 to work. It won't run without it and will crash as soon as you'll launch it. You only need the 'Redistributable Package' not the SDK (Software Development Kit).
