Sorry, I do not know if you have read all this but it will not help too for to create and edit a strategic map in WAR, TLD and LSA.

And at this moment a new strategic map should be made with Mafi BD9 tool. With it I have made the Battle of Ebro strategic map by example. But I can not finish the work because you have not release the workbook. At this point tell us something as this "Edit a Strat Map in WaR tLD and LSA" is as a lie half  because you can not edit properly the code on LSA and you need it for to make a new mod.

It is a work in progress that will guide you through the strat map creation/editing process.

If you have anything of benefit to add , please do.

The webpage will include graphics (to be added), links to appropriate tools (to be added)

When it was my responsibility the workbooks were released in a timely manner.

It is no longer my responsibility.

I would have free time, I would make a MafiĀ“s BD9 guide.

But a guide for the BD9 would be completed ignored because most of the people around here do not want a guide for a fantastic tool which it continues giving a lot of work, they want a tool which it converts all with two clicks. But I feel that they will not see anything like.

I suggest adding a Photoshop image that shows the X,Y and W,H coordinates for the first listing in each group.
Adding that white (255,255,255) does not show up in game?

You can cheat the color overlays a little,but I haven't messed with it in over a year and the experiment was well how should we say.......
Sloppy and quick with no further interest as Imoved over that and went into working with Data.
I remember having yellow outlines and no color in the middle,there was a small issue with the roll over text not being displayed(Map Names),but I think one could fudge it.
I also had the German Cross for German controlled maps and the Green American star displayed for American held maps.
I think the roll over text wasn't being displayed when you were anywhere other than the yellow outline and the emblems I used.
I do remember the K cross worked good.
So I was assuming that solid colors were what the game was keying on in order to get the map names (roll over text) to be displayed.


But the strategic map looked SWEET without those UGLY red and green colors overlayed on them.

A BED9 addendum would be excellent.

Tools required

1. Notepad
2. BED9 - Link to tool
3. Paint program (photoshop)
4. Gadgetmunger - Link to tool
5.

I have discovered that BD9 can not load LSA ScrnGadg.gdg, probably because LSA file is different, on special it has more arrows and the size from file is smaller. But I could load one LSA strategic map saving the LSA image files on a WAR ScrnGadg.gdg and editing the extract.dat for to add all the arrows from LSA, now I can edit it. I would like to make LSA strategic map with only the half of maps, more as the CC2 or my WAR ABTF mod but with the new maps and the LSA strategic map.

So, until BED9 is updated the workaround is use WaR screengadgets then export/import back to LSA.

nice. thannks!
