What do you guys use for editing tiles/map sets?
« on: May 17, 2016, 11:45:51 pm »
As the title states. I found MapView via google search but after messing around with it for ten minutes it seems to me that it doesn't access the new tiles.

Should I mess around with it more to understand it better or is there some other tool?

If you wanna create new tileset (also named MCD files) you should take a look at volutars MCDedit and PCKView.

From your question I understand that you have some new tileset but the MapView doesn't recognize them.
If I'm right, have you added the file in Images.dat?

I guess you could say that. I want to go hunt down some of the broken ugly AF tiles and modify one of the terrains in xpiratez but I didn't know if mapview was the tool to begin with.

I'll take a look at the images.dat, ty.

We've recently co-written a starting manual of sorts for MapView: https://openxcom.org/forum/index.php/topic,1321.msg64765.html#msg64765

Could be useful.
