Need Help with Tile System Program 5 Years, 3 Months ago  
Hi there, new to the forums here but after browsing around a bit I noticed that there was a program called Tile system. So I hunted it down and downloaded it. Along with the Cavern Tile set that I saw up on the forums here... My Question is how in the blazes does one go about loading the tiles that he wants! lol I've read the help file, surfed the web for the answers...Even prayed to the Technology gods...no answer. Hopefully someone here is well versed in this program and can shed some light on it for me. Thanks

Huhm, i'm not sure i understand your question, so i will try to cover all the bases. (as in load it onto the layout, or load it into the program)

I don't have have it on this computer so can't open it it be more precise but i have added things to it in the past.

They should be self loaded into the program from extraction, if not it is a mater of having the images in the right folders, and then the locator documents linking to the right folder with the right name of the images, there is a master list in one of the files that directs the program to location X to get Y etc, and (or there used to be) smaller lists in the folder tellling that in this folder there is image A,B,C, and kind of defines them, that's basics on how ti get them into the programs

When you run the program, there should be a kind of drop down/list on the left, clicking one of the names of the sets toggles it open and closed, if you wanted to, say use Den of Evil, there are 3-4 DoE tabs, , you click the Assecories tab, it should open (unless it's locked then in the corner of the tab is a little lock symbol click that) and it shows you all of the items you can select from DoE Accesories, the stairs, the collumns etc, you put the pointer over one you want and drag it onto the large "map" and then you can manipulate it, turn it, copy it, move them etc.

Does that answer what you want?

well yes and no lol. I've unzipped the Cavern tile set and have placed it in the folder that was created for it. Same with the Tile System files. Do the Cavern tile PNG files need to be in a specific folder to be accessed? when I open the Tile System program I select change tile system. I locate the .set file for the cavern tiles and hit open. This works fine, but doesn't show any of the tiles in the left hand column. I'm wondering how I import the tiles to this column.

www.colinburns.com/games/mastermaze/DrowTiles.zip

is what I use. It has all the tiles laid out in the correct place, etc.

Also, very soon now I will have to RotA tiles in there as well. I just finished them in Illustrator, and now need to convert them and make the xml.

I will let pfwork take over, as he is much more involved in the program and i am some one who has tried adding some grendel and griffon accesories to mine, with more or less effective results...

well this time I managed to get the program to recognize a few of the files, but maybe I'm just not tech savvy enough. Everytime i go to load one of the picture files (the ones that have the photo's of the tiles) it tells me that cannot load the file missing DE corner wall. any suggestions?

It is most likely something very simple like a "spelling" error in the file it's looking for compaired to the name, something like an extra space, underscore etc, i had problems like that all the time when i added my 2nd party accesories.

Ghenghis, your probably right. But how do I edit the file so I can correct the spelling error?

Alright, checked it in Notepad. I think I fixed the problem of locating the files, but another problem comes up. (sorry if I seem to be a helpless pain in the a$$) But now the column on the left that would show the tiles... only show's dark bluish gray boxes... am I doomed to never get this working!

Ah, that i have NO CLUE how to fix, as it is what stopped me from adding stuff, i had that happen on seemingly random things, ones i added and ones i didn't add, things that were changed, were not changed... so, sorry i can no longer help you... those are the mixed results i talked about and what in the end made me give up adding stuff sorry i have led you down my path to a screwed up program... :O

LOL don't worry about it, I just was trying to locate a program that would let me lay out the dungeon with pictures of the tiles, so I knew how many of what sets I would have to buy to build said dungeon. Of course I know if I bought 3 of everything I'd be set... but the lottery gods haven't blessed me yet.
