Load - Load the state the map was in when it was last saved.
After changing any parameter of any object, press Enter.

The visibility of the grid can be toggled by pressing the G button. 5 grids views total.

shadowmap_size - Size of shadow map grid, in pixels. Larger value = worster shadows and faster loading, smaller value = best shadows and slower loading. Loading will be aborted in case of too long loading (15 sec). Speed of loading at different computers can be different. At computers of players who have calculations quality set to "LOW" (by default) this size will be multiplyed by 2. Recommended not to change default shadow map size if you don't understand it.

casual - Enables Casual Mode (not strong). Player will be able to switch between allied characters with tab key. Game will not end till whole team dies. Not for Multiplayer.

nobase - Replaces computerized environment noise with wind environment noise.

game2 - Alternate gameplay. Disables ability to lift items for the Kinetic Module and cannot regenerate energy for the Time Warp. When using the Time Warp, it will go in slow motion endlessly, unless the player deactivates it. Also, the Time Warp can only be used 9 times with this mark active.

strict_casual - Enables Strong Casual Mode. Enables ability to change Player with Tab key. Mission will be terminated on complete death (limb lost) of any of the player's allies, not for Multiplayer.

no_auto_revive - Disallows usage of defibrillators by allies. Allies will not revive the player, nor other allies.

meat - Enables ragdoll disappear even if player's Effects Quality set to HIGH in options. Required if your map generates enemies eternally to prevent lag.

hero1_guns - Creates equipment of main hero. All created guns will have "For team" parameter equal to value of Parameter of Engine Mark.

hero2_guns - Creates equipment of hero Proxy. All created guns will have "For team" parameter equal to value of Parameter of Engine Mark.

hero2_guns_nonades - Creates same equipment as hero2_guns but with no grenades.

hero2_guns_nades - Creates same equipment as hero2_guns but only grenades.
port_nades_count - Creates a stack teleporting grenades that can have a set amount defined by the Mark.
he_nades_count - Creates a stack of regular grenades that can have a set amount defined by the Mark.
sh_nades_count -  Creates a stack of shield grenades that can have a set amount defined by the Mark.
nopsi - Disables psi swords at mission start. Swords can be enabled again with trigger's action 49 and parameter 'A' equal to 1. (You have to put it somewhere up so it works)
gamescale - Sets game camera's zoom to value defined at Parameter of Engine Mark, in percents. 100 is the default zoom.
snow - Creates background layer of snow covering the tops of walls and adds a constant snowfall to the map. Careful this engine mark may cause some lag.

Layers


Depending on the selected layer, you can choose only one type of object on which you are currently working. You can also work with all objects at once by selecting the mode "All".

Known Errors

When you start the map:
Error #2015 - On the map there are no walls, or they take too little space.

Error #1009 or 0 - Non-existent weapons/barrels/vehicles. Possible model of some of the objects being misspelled. Also, you may receive an error if the map has more than 99 barrels, weapons, vehicles or characters. Also, sometimes an error occurs if you set extra spaces in the name for example "gun_shotgun " instead of "gun_shotgun".

Just a black screen - It is possible that you have not added any player in the map.

Error #1095 - Too many objects. The map should not contain more than 99 objects of each type (99 characters, 99 weapons, 99 vehicles, 99 barrels) except the number of walls, lights, background and doors, which are not limited.

Error #1090 - Identical to the Error #1095. Also possible in cases when symbol " used (in parameters of any object) . Use double ' instead to make your map work.

Error #1095 - If the previous description does not fit - please contact the main Plazma Burst 2 game's developer.

Error #1502 - Map loads too long (longer than 15 seconds. Note: loading time can be different at different computers). In most of cases this problem connected with large count of shadow calculations, to avoid this try to decrease count of lamps, or make zones of shadow calculation smaller, or descrease quality of shadows with help of Engine Mark with parameter Mark set to shadowmap_size and parameter Parametr set to larger value.

During the game:

Game "freezes" - Maybe that was called by executing of Trigger, the parameters of which has logical or syntax errors. Also problem can be in Object which makes attempt to call the Trigger. A region meant for a trigger may have the trigger name that was meant to activate misspelled, or it could be that a player/enemy that cannot trigger certain triggers that other players can has went through the region linked to that trigger. Double check the trigger names as this is a common mistake.


Tips

1. Do not let the appearance of too many characters on the screen, as this may cause a drop in performance in some cases, such as lag.


2. Do not place too many walls on the map, but rather separate the level using multiple maps. This will speed up loading of each map, as well as raise the in-game perfomance.


3. Do not use thin walls. Some of the players and objects may go through them, especially if the quality of the physical calculations at options of the player set to LOW.


4. Try to avoid imposition of water areas, because these places will not look good.


5. Try to place the walls so that they overlap each other. Otherwise, between the walls will be drawn a distinction and, moreover, fast moving objects (weapons, grenades, even the players) can become stuck in between them.


6. Try not to place the field of water over the walls and always put the background behind the water sites. This will help your map look better.


7. Allies on your map in case of following the player will only move left or right, if possible, jumping / crouching to reach player, but they will not build more intricate ways (non-linear) to reach their target.


8. On your map, like in single player, computer controlled characters are able to change their weapons to more suitable weapons for a particular situation depending on such factors as distance to the enemy, weapon's damage, frequency of fire, the spread and current status (loaded / not loaded as in the case with the Railgun Lite, Proxy's shotgun and rocket launcher).


9. To make the sky beyond the map, do not distract the attention of the players, hide it with walls.
10. Play more with lighting and lighting effects. A sky light can be created with Flare-free lamp of low power, located along the perimeter of the sky line at regular intervals (eg 200 px).

To make sky light, make lamps with power less than 1, and disable flare. It will make the lamp invisible. Then place it at exposed backgrounds.

11. Do not allow more than 4 lamps with the flare effect to be seen on the screen at any time, as this will cause the game to lag.


12. On maps designed for Multiplayer Deathmatch mode add several (1 for small arenas, 3 for big arenas)
complete sets of heavy weapons (rocket launcher, railgun, bng) and several (one per player, or more if your arena is enough big) low-grade weapons (pistols, rifles, maybe defibrillators).


13. In this version of the game in Multiplayer maps, it does not make sense to place computer controlled enemies, allies, barrels or vehicles. They will be removed, and the triggers associated with them can cause errors during the game.


14. Connect your singleplayer levels with help of trigger's 50 action type. You can also display notifications to players with help of trigger's action type 42.


15. Do not make Multiplayer maps too large. Players can very easily get confused or lost in them. Try to scale down the map to an easier, navigational size. It is never a bad idea to make a map look better. This helps when trying to get a map approved.

16. Don't rush when making maps. Take time when making several maps, as this will help make your map look better and increase its chances of possibly being approved.

17. Keep in mind that all saw maps are not approved as they have nothing affialated with actual battles, so they will NOT be approved.

18. Do not ask administrators to approve your map on Plazma Burst 2.

19. Wait for your map to reach some votes (When a map reaches 25 + Votes, your map will be 'Valued' by the site, and may have a chance of approval unless it is singleplayer or saw.).

20. Deleting a famous map of yours decreases your level developer rank.

21. Always test out your map before publishing it so you know what it will look like.

22. To create an area in which you do not want any player to spawn in (Multiplayer), you can either put a pusher with 0 values for parameter X and Y, or add an invisible/visible door.

23. Most importantly be creative and have fun with it!
