Added fred's patch on main page (graphics).

fred, you named your both patches with same name, so in the process of uploading new one I erased the old one at wakeofgods.org and both links in main thread point to same. Do you want to keep old patch or the old material was moved into the new patch so I can delete all data about first patch? Let me know.


you can completely remove the old patch, as it is obsolete. the two people that wanted a compilation patch, have it already. thanks.

thanks. sorry about the count mix-up, too. 4,679 total objects were supposed to be included in the patch, but i had to subtract 500 or so because their sets were incomplete. i'm also waiting to release the artifacts for the same reason, and because i want them to all be scripted.

not sure where to address this issue, but anyway:

i have era2 installed for my patch tests. i just transferred the lods and text files over from my era1.8 folder, so i could work with existing maps using the xxl patch.

i installed the xxl patch for era 2, and i'm able to create an xxl map by random-generating, then removing all the objects and terrain(leaving me with a blank map).

i opened my existing map from the 1.8 folder, using the era2 map editor, and copied one side of the map(just to test it); so that i could paste it into the xxl map.

but the xxl map doesn't give me the option to paste(just to copy) into the map.

anyone know either what i'm doing wrong, or how to circumvent this? i was able to copy/paste maps before, but with the xxl patch, i don't get that option.

The copy/paste option is in the obstacle tool column.

i know where the tool is. made that quite clear in the post above, sal.

i don't have the option to paste from another open map(like i did before), is what i'm saying.

is this only an xxl problem?

both maps must be in the same game folder.

i tried that, and it didn't work.

to clear up any possible misconception, i'll make another note: i'm attempting to copy/paste from a 144x144 map(largest standard) into an 252x252 map(xxl).

fred I understood you, first step I did was to check it works with xxl patch. And it works. Don't close the editor between maps, copy from one, open the other without closing the editor then paste.

that's exactly what i tried(because that's the only way it works, to my knowledge), and it didn't work how it normally does.

both maps are in the same folder now(the era2 map folder). but i still don't get the option to paste in the 252x252 map, although i just copied the upper half of a 144x144 map.

it's gotta be an incompatibility issue, somewhere.

Then there is only one explanation, when moving core files/lods/txt from 1.08 you screwed 2.46.

possibly. i moved all of the extracted text files(that weren't contained in the era2 folder layout), into the data folder(like how i have them in the 1.8 folder). everything else should be legit, though. maybe i have to add those text files back into the h3bitmap.lod? i don't see how that would make any change, though. the xxl mod works under the "mod" folder...

Don't know. Tested with xxl mod: open map 144x144, copy part of it, open map 256x256, paste.

Works.

the map(s) i'm trying to transfer over to an xxl map are older, but still wog. not created after xxl patch.


------
nope, it doesn't matter what i do, i can't copy an xxl map to another xxl map, an xl map to an xxl map, an xxl map to an xl map, nothing. i replaced the original files for era2, gave the xxl mod priority over my patch, and still i can't copy/paste map content.

the only thing left to try is to remove my object patch, and see if the xxl mod works how it should then. or maybe i could copy the hexidecimal data over into the new map, which i have no idea if it's even possible to copy/paste hexidecimal data in the first place. but i'll give both a shot.

I have your patch installed, you can upload the map you are trying to copy and I will show result.

the map(s) i have doesn't have any of the patch in it; this is all the pre-patch naming work. even if it works, you'll just have a million "object not found" errors.

unless you can copy-paste it, and then reupload it to see if i can continue from my end? do you think that would work?

The objects non found errors I will have will not occur once in your editor, if you have those objects. So yes I can try to copy/paste with errors then reupload.

here is the xxl map i'm trying to paste to, and here is one map i'm trying to copy from.

if you see any inconsistencies between my blank xxl map and yours, let me know.

thanks, sal. it worked. for some reason i still can't copy/paste myself, though. i'll try to make an all-new era2/object patch folder, and see if i can get it to work. if that works, then i'll try moving my non-patch naming convention stuff over from the old data file, and see if i come up with the same issue.

i have more to add to the xxl map, and i have to situate it just right, then build off of that. you won't be able to do exactly what i need, as i couldn't possibly give directions for such a thing(and i doubt you would want to hold my hand with all this anyway).

once i have everything ironed out(meaning, everything works and i've tied everything together properly), i'll be able to release a compilation map of my top 3. should even be able to guide it like a campaign.
