I'm hoping I can continue using chkdraft for this because, my understanding of strings is it's per character that determines how many bytes are used, and Korean words use far fewer characters than English words. Thus, as I'm going through, my used string bytes should, by my understanding, actually go DOWN.

EDIT: I should note that the trigger editor is crashing a lot when I go to paste in my updated code. Not when pressing compile, but merely by pasting.

EDIT: Something is going on with the filesize of my map whenever I am compiling it through your program. It started at 95MB and it has since risen to 146MB! I fear what the final size will be when this process is complete! What's going on here??

Is any of this recognisable to you?

I noticed this pop up during one of my tests, and I searched my triggers for some of the text present here but zero results found.

Never encountered something like this before. Seems to have happened independent of any triggers.

Weird stuff is going on with the strings now. Even though I've only changed the text in display text message only, some of the locations which shared these texts are being changed as well. This is creating compilation errors as the triggers are still searching for the English-named locations which have been changed into korean for some reason automatically by chkdraft. It's not really korean it's like that "machine code" korean too...:

Actually, opening up my map in SCMDraft, I see string limit is now at 101.1% (662270 bytes). Maybe chkdraft is going whacky because of this?

Your maps listfile was incomplete/corrupt - there were several files inside your map which were not listed in the listfile and many which were not used anywhere in the map. Because StormLib was unable to identify several of the files it refused to attempt compacting the map. I wrote a utility and posted it for you in discord to cleanup your map file which in my tests took your map size from 93mb to 63mb and stopped the growth-on-save issue.

The rest of the issues you raised I'll have to tackle at a later date as I'm presently out of time.

This release fixes all of the bugs raised by Oh Man as well as several others, in addition to implementing string usage statistics. As a reminder I do not yet support remastered and maps using remastered features (such as new terrain, player colors, or expanded in-game strings) should not be re-saved through Chkdraft.

Hi there,

When creating a new scenario from scratch, I get a blank map and there's nothing on the minimap either.
I can freely place units and make triggers, just not terrain. I've got all 3 mpqs linked to the tool and existing maps open just fine.
If I open the map in scmdraft, add some terrain, I get the "mpq optimise failed, map size larger than necessary" or so when saving.
I've never really used chkdraft until recently and I can't estimate what dependencies, if any, I might be missing.



None.

That is expected, I don't yet have ISOM terrain support so I can't generate map terrain like Staredit/Scmdraft at this time. You can change the dropdown on the toolbar to "tileset indexed" to place individual tiles; though I recommend terraining in Scmdraft for now.

Pretty sure that's Scmdraft's issue and not mine, I reported it there

not really worth it to me for a one off contest, I feel like the point of an Impossible map is to encourage team collaboration anyway
