Back - Contains information relating to how background image(s) are positioned on the map.[]

The 'back' section of a map consists of various 'links' that help build up the background in that specific map. These links contain no images; just information and values that tells the client to fetch specific data from the 'Back.img' (where all background images are stored) property and where or how to place them in each map.

Each 'back' section of a map has several numbered properties in it once opened. These properties always start from 0 and go up numerically. Depending on which number the background image is set on, it can either be infront of another background image, or behind it.

Example 1: A background image set in the property of '0', will always be behind every other background image.

Example 2: A background image set in the property of '14' will always be behind a background image set in the property of 15, and any other background image set on a property above 15.

Example 3: A background image set in the property of '10' will always be infront of a background image set in the property of 9, and any other background image set on a property below 9.

Thus, judging from the examples above; it can be said that the lower the property number set on a background image is, the further behind it will be. The higher the property number set on a background image is, the more infront of other background images it will be. The only exception being when the 'front' value is set to 1, in which that specific background image will be infront of everything on the map, including the player.

Moving on, each property has information and values in it, that determine how the background image will appear in the map. Namely, these include:

  • a - Normally set to the value of 255.
  • ani - Stands for 'animation' or 'animated'. This links to the 'ani' property of the available background sets in the 'Back.img' tree. Images here are dynamic; meaning that they move, hence the term 'animation'. If a value of 1 is set on 'ani' under the 'back' property of a map, it means that the client will fetch background images from the 'ani' section under the 'Back.img' tree, from an available background set. An example of a back would be 'timeTemple.img' or 'Amoria.img'.
