Testers needed for map converter

Recommended Posts

Just for kicks tried map converter in Virtual PC for my Mac. It worked!

Followed instructions but map converter can't find CM running in Mac’s OS 9.1.

Shucks. Looks like a very handy utility.

Thanks for all the work.

Will there be a problem with my converted maps because I converted to CMAK v1.01, and then created/rebuilt scenario with CMAK v1.03?

Just wondered... Do I need to wait for map converter update?

Thanks,

Ken

Ken, what the program does, simply put, is copy the tiles from the editor screen (not the pictures or actual tiles, but the data) to a place, then copies that data into another editor.

I hope that makes sense.

So you open BB to a premade map screen, minimize, copy with the convertor, maximize, exit game, open AK, go to map screen, minimize, and copy from Map converter, maximize, bingo. But all you get is the map.

Caveats, make sure you look at the map size of the original before you copy, and then make the receiving map editor at least as big. You can also make it bigger and fill in the empty terrain later. I also set the date and country before I copy. Just in case, probably not neccessary.

To answer what I think your q is, if you made a map in 1.01 you can copy it to 1.03 with the new 1.29 converter. I don't think the map cares what version you have, only the converter program, which should be backwards compatible.

Hey J2D,

Forgot to thank you for your help. I was able to convert some old, unfinished scenarios from CMBO... into CMAK battles.

Great tool, Mr. PyeW

Thanks all, for the help,

Ken

To cut a long story short, had to get a new hard drive so lost my original download of the map converter. All the links I've found are long dead so any chance of a new download link please?
