Braid's readme says that "instructions on how to create mods will be posted separately". Until they appear, we only have the ability to access the editor and enter custom worlds:
Running the editor
To access Braid's editor, run with -editor, then press F11 once the game has loaded.
- [ and ] : skip levels. You can visit two of the test worlds this way.
- L : when playing, reload the world. In the editor, move to next entity.
- Ctrl+I : warp to Tim
- P : pause
- T : puts a pink box on the screen. Purpose unknown.
- Q : change border of highlighted entity from yellow to blue. Purpose unknown
To play a mod, run with -universe universe_name.
Save this code to a .cmd file to make things a little easier:
@echo off dir "C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\braid\universes\" echo. set modname= set /P modname="Select universe (case sensitive): " %=% if EXIST "C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\braid\universes\%modname%" ( "C:\Program Files\Steam\Steam.exe" -applaunch 26800 -universe %modname% ) else ( echo. echo ERROR: Invalid universe name! echo. pause )
Of course, you should change the two paths to Steam if Braid is installed somewhere else on your system.
