View Full Version : Map Converter

11-22-2000, 06:03
I have posted a new and easier to use version of my map converter up on the web. This program converts maps from the full game to be compatible with the demo editor (read the Demo Editor and Map Editor threads for information on how to use it).

This allows you to use existing maps as starting points for new ones. Until either I or someone else develops a new map editor, this is the only way of editing existing Shogun maps.

You can download it
here (http://www.btinternet.com/~rjknight/editor/mapcon2.exe).

Feel free to redistribute it in any way.

Let me know how it works!

Just some instructions (it's not complicated, but it doesn't include any help files, so I'd better give SOME instructions)

Type in the name of the source file in the Source text box. To browse for a source file, click the Browse button to the right of the Source box.

The same goes for choosing the output file name. You can overwrite existing files, so be careful!

Once you are ready, click the Begin button and your map will be converted.

Remember, this is for converting FULL STW MAPS to EDITABLE DEMO MAPS, so there is no point trying to convert edited maps like Tami Kochi, Magyorsag or even flatdemo, because these are already in demo format.
