Title: Aw crap...
Post by: Bearded Frog on August 09, 2007, 06:26:16 pm
Don't you hate it when you finnally get everything done on a map, take a nice sigh of relief then notice something horribly wrong? Just created a new map called Sanity to get back into the swing of map making and I realized for some reason when the map merged from the PNG it made it smaller then the actual map size >_<. Map is done save for testing and the minmap is done too however the minimap isnt accurate because of the large area around the map. Am I screwed on tihs? Any possible way to fix it without redoing it? Otherwise I think ill just stick with a fubar'd minimap lol.

actually I think I might have just solved my own problem. I think ill just change the minimap so that it has more blank spacing around the map where it is.

You appear to be screwed, yes. But I'm thinking Notausgang's Map Resizer would have a way to remedy the problem somehow.

Edit: I wouldn't do that as it would make it hard to see in the small minimap box, but as you like :-).

I'm gonna have a look at it later, but from what you described I could probably fix that with some unhandy tools; however, I dunno whether I'm gonna find time to do that soon :|

The method would be to write a program which opens up all of those .*m files and fixes them up.

hehe i think i know what you did ... imported map changed map size re-imported map .... kinda messes things up  :evil:

the only way i fixed this was to start over again ..... but if you didnt do what i usually do ^^ then make a blank map with the size you want save it, load it, then import the file  :mrgreen:

Could just be me, but I think I wrote that already.
