About the info boxes for monsters, I just realized that they can be expanded to have a second "section" for concise data about the boss itself. Particularly, since bosses have fixed health/damage and other properties, you can put in the exact values for reference. Maybe even put in a second image of the monster with the "10" level indicator, and the data below it just like the data for the regular monster (but with fixed values instead of percentages). --Headrock 09:40, 23 November 2010 (UTC)

  • Okay, infobox is updated, the fields should all be there except for a 'Notes' section on the boss itself... wasn't sure if it was necessary. A boss image may also be hard to come by. I went through all of the heroes and took larger screencaps but monsters present a bigger hassle since their hover image is on a black background (and their outline is black as well).--Gentlegiant03 15:38, 23 November 2010 (UTC)
    • I'll try to copy your style, got some expertise on Photoshop. --Headrock 17:31, 23 November 2010 (UTC)
      • Worked like a charm, I used a combination of screenshots with the default tileset images to create enlarged images. Unlike the other monster images these are scaled up to 75x75 using Nearest Neighbour, so they don't appear blurred. (P.S. if you want even larger ones, as they appear in a game when the window is stretched to full size, that can be arranged as well.) --Headrock 19:03, 23 November 2010 (UTC)

Boss Description

  • Say, Headrock, if you're still reading this, I'm thinking the Boss Info Box should also state the Boss Description. You know, that bit of text when you hold the cursor over them in the window? (Gharbad: "Don't get hit." Aequitas: "He has a cool beard.") It'd be especially good if it could replace the text that states "Desktop Dungeons Boss". I've got every description written down, I'm just not sure how to edit the template field, at least not without cocking the whole thing up. --SnapJack 00:25, 28 February 2011 (UTC)
    • I've updated the DDBoss template to include this quote field (I just realized it's not a quote but a description... oh well) and updated Gharbad's description as example. Good idea too by the way, I like how it looks.--Gentlegiant03 04:00, 13 March 2011 (UTC)
      • Beautiful! I'll stick in all the descriptions. Personally, I don't think the quotation marks are needed, though if you decide they do look better, I won't complain if you add them back. Thanks for the coding, either way. I'll stick in all the descriptions right now. --SnapJack 22:53, 12 March 2011 (UTC)
