I have trouble focusing BGIcons, fuel tanks within the Stratmap........how do I get the coordinates correctly????


It's related to map tile size in screengadg.  You want the coordinates to be roughly in the middle of the rectangular tile, but youcan play around with the values relative to neighboring maps to get the position you want.

You can change the values manually in the Stratmap.txt file.  Look for this heading:
# Map Center on the Strategic Map Screen - controls where special gadgets appear on the map tile.
# x = center_x - 86 + special gadget offset_x (see below). y = center_y - 44 + special offset_y.

The order of the coordinate values exactly corresponds to the order of the map names listed at the beginning of the stratmap.txt file.

More Thanks Cathartes!

I was thinking and I put the same coordinates as for the strategic map

after i come to the conclusion that:

Special offset x=26 y=15

In the Stratmap said.....

# x = center_x - 86 + special gadget offset_x (see below). y = center_y - 44 + special offset_y.

But NO.

# X= Center_x+86-special offset_x(total +60). y= center_y+44- special offset_y(total +29)

now all work Fine!



Now I just need to work hard in the connections....any suggestions???

More thanks All!!

You mentioned that this is for tLD but in your screen shot you have the RTBTool set at using the CCV.EXE?
Based on that photo I can help with #3 and #8 if you still need it.
#5 shouldn't be that hard but I don't now the answer off the top of my head.
Have a look at the strat_connections.PDF inside your tLD support folder,for start map/end map info.
For WAR the first line is 0,39
0=Ramschied
39=Krinklet


You can also have a look at this unofficial double top secret your not allowed to have this file done by I can't tell you his name Lets not talk about "HIM" (<-funny line from a movie,can you guess which one?)

I haven't edited the strat map in WAR yet but I hope to one day.
I did however do one for CCIV

Best case scenario is to load the images you need help with in Photoshop and then use the ruler set at pixel and put the images where the current #'s say too.
It becomes much clearer then.

In the screenshot will appreciate RTBTool because I take the data of original Stratmap BoB

In the CCV .exe are the DATA of STRATMAPS

I will work hard

Thankyou for your effort in converting this! I wish i had the same energy because im sure of that my southern friend would be keen of putting the mod up to 64 maps  Very Happy

Are you removing the smoke bug to? its because of the changed effects file with the airplanes i think...

thanks for the offer SL!

I use STRATEDIT to create the map strategic,I do not use BED9 so I can not expand to 64.

these maps offered are new or remastered from those used in BoB ORIGINAL???

if so maybe we could wash his face to the old BOB

I understand that you have a new/remastered  Reichtag or Moltke Bridge maps for example?
