Notetags


Insert the following notetags into your items, weapons, and/or armors to give them unique images in the item menu.

Item, Weapon, and Armor Notetags:

<Picture: filename>
– This will set the item to use ‘filename’ image from the ‘Pictures’ folder in your game’s project folder. For the ‘filename’, do not include the file extension. If you are using an image named ‘Potion.png’, simply replace the filename in the notetag with ‘Potion’. Everything is case sensitive. This notetag will default the hue to 0.

<Picture Image: filename>
– This will set the item to use ‘filename’ image from the ‘Pictures’ folder in your game’s project folder. For the ‘filename’, do not include the file extension. If you are using an image named ‘Potion.png’, simply replace the filename in the notetag with ‘Potion’. Everything is case sensitive. This notetag will not alter the hue.

<Picture Hue: x>
– This will set the item’s picture image to use hue x. Altering the hue will adjust the color hue for the picture image used. Use a value between 0 and 360 for the hue.
