I tried that. Do you have each Goldbox game in its own directory, and the Companion at a similar level, or something else?

The location of the games does not matter. You should always see 12 game titles in the list regardless if the game folder exists. The folder structure of GBC and the mod tools has to be as it in the archive as they all use the data files from the subfolders.

Yes, directory level is the same for all games and GBC. Though the GBC program shows all GB games, including ones that I don't have.
It may be that you need to Unblock the GBC program, go into Windows Explorer and right-click on the GBC.exe program.

Your Games folder should have 12 sub-folders:
01. Pool of Radiance
02. Curse of the Azure Bonds
03. Secret of the Silver Blades
04. Pools of Darkness
05. Champions of Krynn
06. Death Knights of Krynn
07. The Dark Queen of Krynn
08. Gateway to the Savage Frontier
09. Treasures of the Savage Frontier
10. Unlimited Adventures
11. Countdown to Doomsday
12. Matrix Cubed

Another hack...



You can't fight Manshoon in Pools of Darkness but did you know that the game data has stats and a combat icon for him?

He needs to be put in the game so I made a small hack to replace the monsters in the boss fight against Kalistes with Manshoon clones.

Here's an article with some screenshots:

Also has the mod file if you really want to try it but he's just mostly spamming delayed blast fireballs.

Oh man, this topic is awesome, editing dax and tlbs, and all the great utilities you can find here, any question, you can ask me, I got the basics, thanks to all those people who made them for this hobby and does anybody know if there is an assortment of icons made by people, or gotten from the many goldbox games? the last isn't that important since we can get them ourselves but if they are already done, there is a high chance that I won't want a specific one but if there are icons made by people i would like to see that
