Why is a .jpg marked as PNG? The encodings are completely incompatible...



None.

You know in linux most files don't even have extensions. They use file headers instead...

SCMdraft refuses to open AAAAAAA.scm (Error opening map: C) or something similar. 256x256 badlands if that helps at all.
What settings on the last tab do you have? If you have checked Compress Map then it wont open. Otherwise, send me the generated map?

Quote from Aristocrat
... is the table of colors hardcoded, pre-generated, or computed on open?
It's generated after you hit 'Next' on the Adjustments tab. The available colors (no tile information at all) are pre-generated, though I could make them generated ... I don't remember why I pre-generated them.

Browsers load images based on that, but I still cannot figure out why .jpg is appended to the end. It seems to serve no purpose whatsoever other than confuse people.

Attached map in question, and the "compress map" option was greyed out (cannot be modified by the end user).



None.

I love the day when I see a map that StarEdit and StarForge can open but SCMDraft can't. :awesome:

I found the problem ... When loading from an MPQ it adds an extra byte to the data.
I'm assuming by the map you gave me (having triggers and such) that it was not a new map created by MapSketch, but instead a map opened by MapSketch?

Yes; also, you used a label for the "new" option instead of a button so it is not possible to click it, forcing us to always open a map when we want to create something :P.



None.

Change Tileset or Dimensions and it will create a new map. I'm not forcing anything. ;o The "[New]" label is supposed to be the filename of the opened map.

I know ... That's what I've been using to debug the maps it produces. :P Usually, though, if you do things like go to locations or triggers it crashes. .. It's just a lot more unstable.

Would it be more helpful if I said that in the little caption at the bottom of the tab? Like this:

You may either load a new map or create a new one from scratch by editing the Tileset and Dimensions options.

I just made it so it generates the available colors when you choose the tileset and it makes it a tiny, tiny bit laggy ... It's probably best to keep it pre-generated, unless I make it so it only does each tileset once.

Edit:
Uploaded new version. Try this ...

An artist's depiction of an Extended Unit Death

When I saw this I got so excited I deleted my SCPM folder.

On the adjustments menu, changing the tileset crashes for everything except badlands, jungle and desert (Run-time error '9' Subscript out of range, if that helps at all). Also it won't let me open a lot of maps I tried to open initially with the same error, and I had to create a new map (Not a big deal). (It also crashed when moving on to the finalize, but that was fixed with registering COMCTL32.OCX). (I'm on XP SP3).

Phenomenal results, though! There's no comparison to SCPM, to do so would be an insult to MapSketch. Even with the bugs I encountered, your program wins.

A side note: The 'Map Description' doesn't count the new lines and puts all of the information on one line. By the way, how did you know I prepared it?! Hmm...

Were they protected at all?[/quote]I can reproduce these errors, except changing tilesets seems to be random for me ... I can go through every tileset and get the error, then reopen and then do the exact same thing and not get it .. so I have no idea. ;o

It does count the newlines, it's just Windows can't display it ... I should make it so that if you don't compress the map it doesn't do that ...

EDIT:
Try this new EXE (Replace your old EXE) ... If it works, I'll upload it as an update release.

Why does "create as picture map" delete players and set everything to 0?

Also, your initial release actually appears to be more stable than your current version.

It can't delete players if they aren't there. :P And it makes everything 0 because I didn't feel like generating all the default sections. :P I figured picture maps don't need them ..., and you can just click 'Restore Defaults' in any editor.

Really? O.o In maps I was testing the old version would crash or improperly load the minimaps, this one doesn't seem to do that at all. Where is it crashing or bugging?

Whenever I try and put my Avatar into a blank map and such, and then proceed to try out the different tilesets to find the best one, i always crash and get an error that says "Run-Time Error '9': Subscript out of range"
