Post #204049 Re: Npc name location

I was actually looking into this at a point when messing with npc limitations, but never got too far with it or found a solution as of yet. I'm also not exactly sure how it's hardcoded in the client. It seems like it's done really oddly though.. I will definitely look into this more soon, but if anyone has any information about how NPC names/positions are worked into the client, I'd love to hear also. Any information could really help. This is one of the only issues left with npc limitations, aside from the 64kb pub limit. (In regards to adding additional npcs.)

Well, for now I would try to find an npc with similar size and putting the gfx over that one.

This still limits you to the sprites that are included with the game.  Things like this are why I stepped away from private server development.

Thanks for the info I wasn't sure if I had done something wrong lolz

NPC names are hard-coded to the individual NPC's height. The way the programming works for that build is to position a bitmap at its lower left coordinate. The default size appears to be that of a crow. This is why adding new NPC's is always off center. Likewise, the NPC name is positioned to the same crow NPC default height. The HP damage bar shares the same position as the name and is also in the default position. There isn't a good way to fix this without hacking in some configurable external file map of where to move things.
