Zunächst einmal

Das allererste was man tun sollte: REGELN LESEN!!!

Wie man online spielt

Online spielen funktioniert primär genauso wie Offline spielen, der Unterschied besteht nur darin, dass man andere Spieler sehen, Levels oder Replays hoch- oder runterladen, und diverse Statistiken während des Spielens einsehen kann. Um all die neuen online Features nutzen zu können, sind eine Vielzahl von Tasten vonnöten.

Wenn man das erste Mal das Spiel startet, läuft möglicherweise schon ein Battle. Einfach Level herunterladen, zu den External Levels über das Menü gehen und jenes Level finden, das gerade gespielt wird.

Vorgegebene Tastenbelegung in Belma

F1  =  andere Spieler ein-/ausblenden
F2  =  nächsten Spieler beobachten
F3  =  vorherigen Spieler beobachten
F4  =  momentan laufendes Battle Level herunterladen
F5  =  Onlinespieler Liste ein-/ausblenden
F6  =  Ergebnisse des laufenden oder zuletzt gespielten Battles ein-/ausblenden
F7  =  alle gefahrene Zeiten anzeigen, solange die Liste aktiv ist
F8  =  löscht alle angezeigten Zeiten der F7-Liste
F9  =  in eine Chatzeile schreiben (max. 65 Zeichen pro Zeile) - Das Tastaturlayout ist QWERTY, gewöhnt euch dran
F10 =  sich selbst verbergen - funktioniert nicht in dem aktuell zu fahrenen Battle Level
F11 =  Gewinner Replay des zuletzt beendeten Battle Level hoch- bzw. Herunterladen
F12 =  neuverbinden zum Server

Additional commands which don't have default mapping in Belma are:

  1. Show/hide chat
  2. Show/hide battle status line
  3. Show/hide battle leader in battle status line

How to make your own shirt (BMP)

If you acquired Belma from zworqy's elma site, you should have a BMP.zip among the other files. This is the shirt collection of most of the users in Belma. Extract it in the bmp folder and you will recognize other players better. Since it is not updated regularly, you must manually download the latest ones.

The following is a walkthrough for beginners on how to make a shirt picture, if you know what you are doing you can of course do it any way you want.

  1. Open Microsoft Paint
  2. Open a BMP
    • Either: Load an existing working BMP (that already has the right colors in the game, e.g. milagros.bmp)
    • Or: Create a new one with the dimensions 149 x 101 pixels
  3. Rotate 90° counter-clockwise, if you want it to be easier to see what the shirt will look like in the game
  4. Make the background
    • Note that all pixels with the same color as the top left corner pixel will be transparent
    • It may be any shape, no need to use the usual shape of the shirt
  5. Put something unique on it: letter, image, logo, etc
  6. Customize
    • It is useful to use advanced programs like Adobe Photoshop for better results
    • You can also use special fonts from pages like dafont.com
  7. Rotate 90° clockwise if you rotated it before
  8. Correct your BMP
    • If you created or edited your shirt with another program, you might have wrong palette. Then, follow these steps:
    1. Copy your BMP
    2. Open working BMP
    3. Paste there
      • There are mainly two different LGRs used as the default one (the original default.lgr and highq.lgr) and it's a good idea to have a look at the shirt with both LGRs as they have a different color palette.
  9. Save as type "256 Color Bitmap (*.bmp,*.dib)"
    • Use the exact name as on Elma Online (case sensitive, no accents or special symbols)
  10. Publish on Upload Page
  11. Advertise to everybody on Elma Online, on forums, #ballelma (mIRC) and anywhere else you want
    • Shirts are not yet uploaded and distributed automatically in the game. If you edit one and nobody has this version, it will not be seen by other players.
