Hey D-I.....

Is the name of the file you downloaded this:

MasterMaze-TileSystem-V3.zip

Thats what I have and installed and it works like a charm.

I downloaded it from here:

www.muinimula.de/Muini/de/2nd/tools/mastermaze/Tilesystem-3_x.html

Harneloot, that was the first file that I Downloaded, that is the one that didn't work at all, the second file that I got from the link in Pfworks post is the one that loaded the file sets, its just it doesn't show the tiles when it loads, just colored blocks. could I be missing a driver? or something like that?

What happened with the first time?

When unzipped it, I got a Tilesystem.exe file with a 3/12/2007 date stamp, a file called MasterMaze_Photos.set (4/2/2007 date stamp) and a folder called Master Maze (4/3/2007 date) plus some other files.....

When I double click on the Tilesystem.exe program it starts up, and along the left hand side is a list of ALL the different sets. If I click on one, the photos of that set appear in that left hand margin space.

Do you get all this? Maybe if we walk through it together we can find out why its not working ;)

I just tried downloading it and installing/running it again from the link I gave and it worked perfectly. Maybe try downloading it again?

You are, by chance, running Vista are you?

Hi Dragon, when a grey square is shown instead of the proper image of the DF piece, usually means that the program can't find that file in the specified folder, so you should check the file path of the .set entry for that image (you can hover the mouse pointer over the grey square to know what file to check).

The idea is to have the images in sub-folders of the folder in which the .set files is located, so when you put in the .set file where the files are, you don't have to write the whole path (example: C:TilesystemDwarvenForge... etc) but only the name of the sub-folder / sub-folders. here's an example:

This is the xml element in the .set file for the plain 2x2 fantasy floor. This .set file is located in the same folder of the tilesystem.exe file. Then, as a sub-folder is "MasterMaze", and into that "Photos", "Fantasy"... and so on. If, for example, I see a grey square and It shows me the tip text "FN floor 2x2" I should check if the file FN-Floor2x2.PNG is in the specified folder.

<Tile name="FN floor 2x2" type="0" sort= "1" maxcount="26" warn="true">
MasterMazePhotosFantasyFloors&WallsFN-Floor2x2.PNG
</Tile>

Hope it helps, carry on Dragon, the program really helps and it's not quite difficult to manage once you know how to. If you have more questions please don't hesitate to ask.

Greetings,

AH, finally - an expert!

When I unzipped that file, it put everything in the correct folders - no need to change a thing!

Yeah, the program is beyond great - it even gives you a print out of how many of each tile was used to make the map you made!

Bingo, Arsthein that was the problem, the .set file was trying to locate the pictures in /mastermaze/photos/cavern/yadayadayada... but they were in a folder called Mastermazephotos/ yada yada yada. Problem fixed, time to start building. Thanks for all your help Harneloot and Arsthein.

Under the view menu, there is an option called "OpenGL". Try checking it and then restarting the program. For many, it gives a big speed boost and slight visual improvement. This option makes the program use hardware acceleration, if your video card supports OpenGL.

One way to test to be sure OpenGL is being used is: As you zoom out, the grid lines start to fade away.
