Umm... I think it's self-explaining.

For example, the first special exit says: level: 9, room (down): 11.
This means that if on level 9 the prince exits room 11 down, then the level will end.

Similarly, the first guard trigger says: level: 6, guard: girl, room: 18, action: permanent open, tile: 20.
So, if on level 6 a girl (amazon) dies, then the gate in room 18 at tile 20 will open permanently.

So special exit means finish the level at the current tile, room, event if there is no exit door?

Also i think you forgot potion trigger hack...

Yes. An example is at the end of level 9, when the prince falls down after the shadow closes the gate.

Do you mean the various "Drinking kill potion" hacks?
I will have to change something in the editor for those, because, as it is now, the defaults of the disabled hacks would overwrite the enabled hack...

My idea is to add a new type of hack that displays as a radio button and has no default.
