Is it possible to import pictures to be made as a persisting image laser? There is the crab laser atari and others, but i thought i could impport a picture. Please post me a note. Thanks.

I believe I read a post stating that it was not possible.:(
I wish someone will prove me wrong as I would love to be able to do this. The in game tool to draw images is extremely poor. I couldn't even draw out words very nicely.
It would have been nice if the default image library had a larger assortment of stuff or better tools to draw with.

This persisting image feature could develop into a major aspect of the game if we found a better way to draw or import images.

If we can create scenery, this must be possible! No?

I agree. It would really create great special effects on a small scale, like around park and ride entrance's.

it's possible:up: just make a drawing, and put in in atari/RCT3/laserwriting/
then convert it to a lwr, what ever that is.:weird:

What?

David Braben said it has to be a special kind of image though, usually vector art. You can't just slap something together in MS Paint and save it as an LWR file... You'll crash RCT3 if you do that!

You're right and wrong.
1. Renaming a .bmp to .lwr, or trying to save from MSPaint as a .lwr will not work.
2. It did not crash the game. It just issued a corrupt file message and continued to run( this it not to say that it wont crash on other computers, so I guess you not necessarily wrong ;) )

Hmm. vector art... I'll have to experiment a little unless anyone can provide anything more specific. (maybe I can make a tutorial and get it stuck):nuts:
