EnEsCe's Map Deployment Wizard
« on: April 16, 2006, 01:01:09 pm »
Attention Map Makers!
[/b]
PREPARING YOUR MAPS FOR RELEASE IS NOW AS EASY AS 1, 2, 3!
[/b]


What It Does:
-------------
The Map Deployment Wizard is a tool for easily including custom textures
and sceneries in a zip file with your map, for easy distribution. If any
files are missing, the Wizard will inform you.

How To Use:
-----------
Run the program. You will be asked to select a map, and clicking "Next >>"
NOTE: The map must be in your soldat MAPS folder! (To find scenery)
will start scanning the map for all included textures and sceneries, which
are compared to a list of defaults to determine if they are custom or not.

Next, a list of all custom scenery will appear. Here, you can choose which
scenery to include in the zip file and which you want to exclude. If you
add a scenery to the map but never actually use it, the information still
exists in the map file, so the scenery is still added to the ZIP.
Click "Next >>"

NOTE: (!) in front of a scenery means that scenery was not found.

Finally, you will see a list of zip options. You can choose the level of
compression used, set a password, include comments, and for those of you
that know what you are doing, some expert options are included. If you
don't know what you are doing, leave them alone. Click "Make Zip", choose
where to save it to, and you are done! Your map is now ready to be
distributed, without worrying about missing textures.


Select map source screen (Stage 1)


Choose which scenery to exclude and add (Stage 2)


Final preparations for the ZIP archive. (Final Stage)

EnEsCe: in the next update could you add a scenery preview feature or something like that?

It goes without saying that you rock.

MDW didn't pack "Battle_Fire.png". It shows "[!]battle_fire.png" on the wizzard. A little glitch?

Yes, it is. Don't bring up 2+ year old dead threads.

Edit: To all trying to use this program and finding it doesn't completely pack the map's required resources, please use this packer instead, as bombski mentioned. http://forums.soldat.pl/index.php?topic=28751.0
