Level Editor
The Level Editor Feature is currently only available in Beta Form though, as we’re still working on finalizing everything and improving it to a state that we feel everyone will be happy with. Therefore you can expect that there will be bugs with the feature, and that using it won’t be the smoothest experience for now. Because of this we decided to place the Level Editor Beta on its own Special branch here on Steam, so that those interested in checking it out can do so, but it won’t interfere with everyone else’s enjoyment of the game.

To utilize the level editor, you must first access it on Steam. Here’s a brief breakdown on how to access the right branch and enable the feature:
  1. Go to Zombie Night Terror in your Steam Library
  2. Right click on the game
  3. Scroll down the available options in the resulting drop-down menu and then select "properties."
  4. After this you must then go to the "betas" tab and click on the downward facing arrow key under the “Select the beta you would like to opt into:" option
  5. Select “level_editor” from the resulting drop-down menu
  6. Finally click "close" and you will know that the process was successful when the game reads as "Zombie Night Terror [level_editor]" in your Steam library
Once you download the update associated with switching to the right branch on Steam, you will be able to access the Level Editor Feature from within the game. We’re still working on finalizing the feature, so there are currently some limitations as to what players can do with it (besides creating custom levels and importing official new levels). Here’s a brief breakdown of the current limitations associated with the Beta:
  1. No sharing via Steam Workshop for now
  2. Chapters edition is not ready yet
  3. The UI is not final (and we know that it’s currently ugly)
  4. Some tools are not included yet (like line & rectangle painting)
  5. Challenges are not useable
  6. Please expect to run into a lot of bugs whilst utilizing the Level Editor Beta
  7. We’re still working on the final version and would really love all of you feedback as it would greatly help us to deliver the best Level Editor that we can for everyone to enjoy!
We really hope that you guys will enjoy what the feature already has to offer and we can’t wait to hear all of your feedback! So please share any thoughts that you might have about the Level Editor in the Beta section of the game’s Steam forum here http://steamcommunity.com/app/416680/discussions/2/ or feel free to write to us directly at feedback@zombienightterror.com.

Click on the main menu button and open the settings, there is a Mutations section where you can unlock them and set start DNA.

Select the character with the Selction tool, then click on click on the button "Edit Waypoints" and you should be able to add edit them.

I assume you meant how instead of who. So the dialogs are embedded inside the patrol systems, its not that hard to edit but it can be tedious to synchronize multiple characters.

To edit them, open the patrol wapoints editor then click on the "Actions" button on any waypoints, it will open a timeline where you can add/remove/edit a variety of actions. If you want to now how it works, I suggest you open the "example 1" level and check the three central characters.

Never experienced that, if you have more details to reproduce it, I can try to reproduce it.
