I placed an EF1 pk3 with an EF1 map in Base folder of EF2 to see if the EF2 Demo is Hard-Coded against modding. Its not! In developer mode, i entered the maps list and the EF1 map was there. Just to see, i loaded the map from ef1 in ef2. It seam to start, but, i got this

Error, File Version 14, change to 49

(those are not the exact numbers, i working from memory).

I dont understand what this means, but, if the version number can be changed, we load maps compiled for EF1. Compatibility with radient will be limited, but some stuff may be done. Can anyone develop a plug-in for GTK/EF-radient so maps will compile with this new version number? If so, post here, ill get the proper numbers for you to work with.

if anyone with exstencive knowlage can enlighten the community as to whether this is possible, or im reading into false hopes, please reply, the sooner we know, the sooner we can start EF2 Mapping! Thanks.

One thing, however, is certain, MODDING is ENABLED in the EF2 Demo, Unlike the EF1 demo. If this is intentonal, or a slip up by ritual, smeg knows, but this at least looks exciteing.

I Just copyed a .map file from EF2, renamed it and put it into a new .PK3 and got intresting results...

When i loded the map i got an l-cars style screen with

$$$Loading Lcars$$$ && Loading $$$

On it. I thaught this was a block, but i waited, and, the map loaded, with no shuttle sequence, and the shuttle visible from behind the force feld. No sounds except for door noises, and no alien attacks.

But it, in my opinion, confirms that you can map new maps and play them in the EF2 demo.

All we need now is an EF2 GDK or for someone to try to get some sort of a plug-in for the exsisting radient(s)

Please reply with ideas, suggestions and possibilitys,

Thank you
