Modules for ABattlemap



  • For those interested: I just finished a tutorial for creating ABattleMap modules.  I hope some of you will find it useful: http://www.axisandallies.org/forums/index.php?topic=18773.0



  • Update!



  • Hi,

    I had Battlemap working with 0.79 and AAP40.

    But haven’t managed to load a AAE40/AAG40 file in the new .80 version.

    Do i need a map/module?

    Is so where’s the thread?

    thanks

    Funcioneta has made a provisional global module.  I hope to be able to finish more polished G40/E40 modules sometime… I have spent a lot of time on them already, but unfortunately the matter of whether or not I will be able to have the time to finish them is still a little bit up in the air.  I do very much hope and intend to finish what I’ve started.

    Func’s total map looks pretty good. I have an error to report on it though. There are two (2) Nova Scotia’s. The little island off Quebec’s coast is actually Newfoundland. I don’t know if someone can fix this, but I know those Newfies go pretty nuts when they get dissed.  😄

    Actually, New Brunswick/Nova Scotia is New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, AND Newfoundland. Newfoundland/Labrador is just Labrador. The 2 Nova’s are the same territory

    Well that’s still geographically wrong how it’s depicted. Newfoundland should NOT be attached to NB and NS. It should be just those two as one territory attached to the US. The little island should be Newfoundland because that province IS an island! Newfoundland and Labrador are part of the same province, just separated by water.  😄

    When you move your cursor over the island, at the top it says Nova Scotia. I still think it should be renamed Newfoundland. That’s just my Canadian beef. How other beef is how they left out Saskatchewan and used Alberta instead  :lol: 😛 but we won’t go there.

    Actually, the territory is called Alberta/Saskatchewan/Manitoba



  • Hi, got a problem with ABattlemap.  It doesn’t seem to save any maps.  When I click on a map to download, it says that it is saved to the ABattlemap folder in Program Files, yet when I go to ABattlemap program and try to open it, I can’t find the file anywhere.

    Any help??? :?

    You may have to change your “browse” window to “downloads” instead of perhaps “desktop”

    You were right.  I got it.  Thanks. 😄



  • Any idea when Stoney’s version of Global 40 will be done???  He’s probably near completion right???



  • @questioneer:

    Hmm, the only thing he can add to func’s map is abbreviations and ipc values



  • Also add the VCs

    The ipc values are already listed if you put the cursor over the territory and most of us made our own abbreviations. BTW, anyone know why shan state is abbreviated SHM instead of SHN?

    No doubt it is a typo.  Just change it with the sektor editor.  Heck, with that editor you could change a lot of names, like “Japan” to “Death Star”  🙂

    LOL. Well it’s led to people calling it “Sham State.”



  • How do I use the SektorEditor?

    @calvinhobbesliker:

    It’s actually very easy.

    File -> Sektor editor

    Then you click on a territory or zone, and it automatically brings up the stats and name.  You just change it, then save.  It’s great.



  • It doesn’t automatically change when i push save and also doesn’t when I refresh it.



  • Also, how to I use it to add the airbase to philippines?

    @calvinhobbesliker:

    Alright here, hold my hand now.

    After making your change, I click “Save”, then “Save Sektorinfo” (button on left), then “Save” again.  Might be an extra click somewhere, but it works.



  • Okay, when I now move the cursor over Shan State, it has the correct name and abbreviation, but the abbreviation on the map itself is wrong. i suppose it’s impossible to change the map itself?
