    Latest expansions maps

    Hello,

    First I would like to give a big thank you to Newby and BlueAdept for keeping this ShowEQ alive.

    I just got ShowEQ working on Debian 9.8. All mobs and everything are showing up no problem. I have the maps converted by mapconvert script by Razzle. Guild Lobby looks fine with the border lines. But the zones like Frontier Mountains or Over There Two aren't showing up with the lines but there are words from the map files showing up. Is there anything I can do to make the lines to show up?

    Thank you.

    I think you need to merge the layer 1 and layer 2 and not use the layer 3. Then convert. It has been 10 years since I have done it, so take my words with a grain of salt.

    Oh yeah... I remember something like that a long time ago. My memory sucks. Thank you. I'll give it a shot tonight.

    Got it! Thank you for that info. Here's what I did for Frontier Mountain - in case if anyone else have this issue.

    copy frontiermtn* to a new directory.

    cat frontiermtnsb.txt >> frontiermtnsb_1.txt
    cat frontiermntsb_2.txt >> frontiermntsb_1.txt
    cat frontiermntsb_3.txt >> frontiermntsb_1.txt

    Delete the frontiermtnsb.txt, frontiermtnsb_2 and frontiermtnsb_3.txt files then run ./mapconvert. Looks perfect.

    Guess I got some work cut out for me on other zones.

    Thanks

    Re: Latest expansions maps

    I had written a script to do it. I used a for loop. I would post it but dont have it any more. That was about 3 linux boxes ago.

    Re: Latest expansions maps

    I actually just created a rough dirty script to merge all zones. I'll post it here once I tested it. I am currently doing ./mapconvert now.

    Would you happen to be able post the mapconvert? I cant seem to locate it. Either that or post the link where you got it.

    Thanks for the merge script. That is a little more elegant than mine was.

    Re: Latest expansions maps

    I used this http://www.showeq.net/forums/showthread.php?6098-SOE-or-Mapfiend-to-SEQ-map-conversion-script to convert after I ran the merge script. Took a lot longer than it did when I ran mapconvert on original unmerged map files.

    I was just at new Chardock (EoK expansion) map showed perfectly there.

    Also Palatial Guild Hall map would not load because showeq called for guildhalllrg_int.map. There isn't any map files but there is guildhalllrg.map and I "cp guildhalllrg.map guildhalllrg_int.map" and it shows up fine. .... Not like you'd need a map for that zone

    I've been trying to work with your scripts to convert gnomemtn and gnomemtn_1 to work with showeq but could use a little help

    Any instructions?

    What does mapconvert do? I just cat the files together and showeq seems to read them fine.

    I vaguely remember showeq's map format was different from everquest's (showeq predates everquest mapping). But I think showeq got updated to read everquest's maps natively at some point. I think it can handle both formats.

    Re: Latest expansions maps

    From the changelog:

    Code:
    dohpaZ (12/7/03)
    ---------------------
    ...
    + Support for direct loading of SOE txt format map files.
    ...
    I've been dropping everquest maps into my showeq maps directory for years and they just work.

    I think it converts the maps to black background instead of white. Not sure. Been a long time since I have done it. Dont have a toon higher than 85 heroic.
