Re: Converting images for A&A Mini Modules


  • 2019 Moderator

    You lost me with the click region.  I understand the rectangle, but I’m using MS Office Picture editor and Paint, you know free programs 😄 I don’t know anything about programing, my experience is cutting and pasting to make funny pictures and map editing, hell I have Corell at home, but I don’t know how to use it…

    So I don’t know how to figure out the cordinates, does a normal editor show your coordinates when you are editing?  I supose I could count the pixels, but damn…

    I am already counting pixels to determine the image size…

    btw. that yellow color is rough on the eyes 🙂

    Ok as an example for the Mine image I sent you today if I included a txt file with:

    38,19
    38,24
    36,19
    36,24

    Is that what you need?  I figured out a way to get them with MS Office picture editor…

    LMAO, I figured out ho wto do it with paint now too, aslong as I am showing the coordinates right I start including that.



  • In paint, us ethe selection tool.  It shows all four needed coordinates in the bottom right in the status bar as you drag…though I suppose I should have included that in my description!  :oops:

    I’ve just updated it.

    What I’m looking for each units is roughly:

    Flakpanzer:  left=25, top=23, width=17, height=19

    or even just

    Flakpanzer = 25,23,17,19

    The formating doesn’t matter, just that the values are in the right order

    ok got it


  • 2019 Moderator

    Ok, I think that’s it for Contested Skies, that ought to keep you buisy for a minute 😛



  • Reserves completed also… 😮 😮 😮



  • Yikes its an avalanche of stuff to do!



  • I’m gonna re-size all unit that appear to small.

    Grizzled vet, luftwaffe inf, semovente, vet smle,communist partisans, bren gunner, inspiring hero.

    After that i’ll do the D-Day set.

    I know you got an avalanche of units but you can just keep these on the back burner until you get time.

    no rush.

    I’m going to ease off for a few days, I may pick back up again next week.



  • Yes, let me catch up.  I won’t even have time to start bringing all these new ones until Friday.



  • I’m glad to see other folks have jumped into the production. The system that had all my unit graphics templates crashed a few weeks ago and I lost the next batch of units I was working on. Fortunately, all my scenario map templates were on another computer so I still can add more maps in the future without having to start at ground zero.

    By the way, nothing says that we can’t design a custom set of maps just for AAM online gaming. Let me know if you have any ideas in this regard.

    I’d like to see the new maps added at some point.


  • 2019 Moderator

    More maps is better for sure.  What is the file type you use for maps?



  • jpeg


  • 2019 Moderator

    Mot, can you send me the jpeg for Malme Airfield, I have some Ideas… muhahahah



  • Cobalt created that one I think?  I’d like to OK it with him first if he made it.  Not mine to pass along, or something like that…


  • 2019 Moderator

    ok



  • Great teamwork!!!  I guess I’m too stupid to help.  I’ll just cheer from the sideline

    😄 😄 😄 😄 😄

    When were complete I’ll be inviting players from some other site over to play here….
