The EVE in a Eve.mlt stands for Event.
We're talking about things in your folder, Go into Ubisoft folder, Rayman designer, Then in Image Cake Mountain Music or Jungle folders
For Jungle it's JUN.pcx (still EVE.mlt)
For Band Land it's MUS.pcx (still EVE.mlt)
For Blue Mountain it's MON.pcx (still EVE.mlt)
For Picture City it's IMA.pcx (still EVE.mlt)
For Cake Chateu it's CAK.pcx (still EVE.mlt)
For Cave its CAV.pcx (still EVE.mlt)
The EVE.mlt is used for objects (As in, the things you put in your levels Tings, enemys, you, ect. Don't edit unless you know what you're doing)
The PCX is used as a template (It is not the thing you see when you're making levels in mapper)
The .map file in each of the worlds is the thing you see when you're making levels in mapper
To edit a .map file, Simply make a file in mapper, Save it, Go into the folder it's in Copy and paste the EVENT.Map and rename it CAV.map or CAK.map or whatever.
You can also do it the other way around, So you can add things to the template.
Again, don't mess with it unless you know what you're doing!
UPDATE: Extended information.
EVE.MLT: Basically what we're doing is modifing current objects in there to give you something new, in other cases (IE:Red antitoons and prickly balls) we are adding back to the game what was taken out.
"Things were taken out? What are you talking about oh mighty tehrunescape?"
If you go into an original EVE.MLT file, you will find a great, great, GREAT wall of deleted text.
It is apsolutely massive, what was there is every single object ever in Rayman 1 or Amazing Learning Games With Rayman (Rayman Learning Center) or the like.
We believe that they can be added back to it, and we have successfuly added back a very very small fraction of what could've been there, and added some new things aswell.
There are some things though, aren't just removed from the EVE.MLT, but removed from existance. These are sprites, primarily the boss sprites are nowhere to be found. Why? We don't know. Right now I'm guessing that they realized we would never need any boss sprites and they just removed any hope of getting them.
"But if they removed sprites, how are you able to add things back like red antitoons?" They only removed boss sprites, my professional guess is that they made Rayman 1 with rayman designer, because if they didn't the eve.mlt thing is just a massive what the heck, and then Amazing Learning Games With Rayman (Rayman Learning Center) with Rayman Designer, but they didn't need to put bosses in the game, so they simply took it out.
This would explain why there are red antitoons and the like but no bosses....It wouldn't, however, explain why Rayman Designer (released in 1997 with Rayman Gold) would have things from Rayman Learning Center (released in 1999) but then again it has never been brought up in conversation here, so we're best off forgetting that fact.
