DYOM 7.0.2 Complete Guide And Tutorials

By King

Concepts
There are four main concepts, which will first be briefly discussed, so it you can understand the rest of the features better.

1. Objectives: The most important things in the missions you create with DYOM are the objectives. If you have achieved all the objectives of a mission, the mission is passed. For your missions, you can set a number of objectives, which the player of the mission must achieve in sequence. For each objective you can choose one of the four available kinds: A checkpoint that must be reached, a actor that must be killed, a car that must be entered or a pickup that must be picked up.
2. Special Objectives: this isn't something the player has to do, but this is used to change the settings of the mission or make something between the objectives. So, for example, there is a change in the weather, a change in wanted level, a change in time limit or a cutscene.
3. Select/Hide/Spawn: Besides the objectives you can also add other items: actors (either enemy, friend or neutral), cars, pickups and objects. Items don't have to be available during the whole mission. You can design them to appear after a certain objective has been achieved and hide them after a certain objective has been achieved. In designmode one of the objectives is "selected" which is indicated by a yellow marker, instead of the normal white marker over an objective. By default, the last added objective is selected, but you can select another one from the objective menu. When you add an objective, they will be inserted behind the currently selected objective. When you add items to the game, they will appear during the mission after the currently selected objective has been achieved. Afterwards, you can use the "SPAWN" and "HIDE" menu-options to determine when the item spawns and disappears. These options change them to the time when the currently selected objective is achieved.
4. Save and Distribute: When you are making a mission, it is wise to save it from time to time. You can save when you select the option "Save Mission" in the "Mission Menu". You can save up to 8 missions at a time. These missions are saved in "San Andreas User Files", with the name dyomx.dat. The x can be a number between 1 and 8, depends on which slot you used to save the mission. This is comparable to the savegames from the normal GTA San Andreas. Once you are finished, you can distribute the mission by uploading the dyomx.dat file to the DYOM website (http://dyom.gtagames.nl). If you want to play other people's mission, you have to download the mission (also a dyomx.dat file!) and put it in "San Andreas User Files". Then start DYOM, and select Mission Menu > Load Mission. If you just use the "save mission" function, and distribute that file (so dyom1.dat until dyom8.dat), everyone can change your mission. If you want to prevent that, you can select "publish mission" in the "Mission Menu". Then you will find a dyom0.dat in San Andreas User Files. When you distribute this file, other people aren't able to change the mission.

When you first press the "Y" key this menu will show up:

  • Mission Menu
  • Storyline Menu
  • Settings
  • Player
  • Objectives
  • Actors
  • Cars
  • Pickups
  • Objects
  • Tools


Now, lets get into explaining them.

Mission Menu
# Play Mission
# Save Mission
# Load Mission
# Publish Mission (read-only version of the mission)
# New Mission (the only way to be able to put your own name as author into the mission)
# Show Audio Code (that will Show You Audio folder of for adding Sound in your mission)








Feature
Desription

Play Mission
Plays the currently loaded mission from the beginning, this function is only available on non-read only missions.
Save Mission
Saves the currently loaded mission. The user must select the appropriate slot, and then DYOM will save it into the GTA San Andreas User Files folder in the My Documents folder. The mission will be saved with the name "DYOMx", here X represents the slot number it is saved in. For example, If I saved it in Slot 5, then it would be called "DYOM5".

Load Mission
Loads a mission. The user must select the appropriate slot where the mission is saved. This works in the same way as saving missions. If the mission is called "DYOM5" then it would be in Slot 5.

Publish Mission
This will save the currently loaded mission in the GTA San Andreas User Files folder with the name "DYOM0". This mission is a read only mission, which means that it cannot be edited by anyone. Change the name of the mission by removing the 0 from the end and replacing it with a number (1 through to 8) with the number representing the mission Slot it will be put in.

    This lets you add an actor (NPC, or non player character) as an objective. For actor objectives, you must kill the actor to complete it.

Use that if you have multiple enemies that you want to kill as one objective.
