View Full Version : map upgrading issue
don't know if its something i'm doing wrong but I can seem to be able to get the maps that were created with dizzyage v1.31 to upgrade properly when opened with 2.3 all the objects have vanished, but doing the search they are found but i can't see them anywhere on the map?!
that's very odd. i never had any problems upgrading DWD from 1.31 to 2.3
which game are you trying to update? i'll have a look on my comp, see if i get the same problem.
although I've just tested on magiclands map and that upgrades fine :dizzy_confused:
hmm i've just loaded it into my map editor and it's showing fine. I've saved it and zipped all the files, and sent you a private message with the download link.
thanks jamie, but when i loaded the map my end the items were still missing :dizzy_confused:
that's very odd. have you checked that you have the latest version of the editor, and have loaded the correct tiles into it?
everything was showing fine at this end.

I loaded your map and indeed there is a problem, at least with the items - I'll let you know as soon as I find what is happening.

OK, I found the issue:
Your items were selected when you saved the map. This info was stored in a property which in the new version of DizzyAGE became the scale property. So the items were loaded with scale 1, too small to be visible.
You can select all the brushes (to be sure) and set their scale to 0 (this works as default 100%).
I also updated DizzyAGE to v2.3.1 and this latest editor does this automatically when loading an old map. This is only a change in editor's scripts (editor.pak) and no games need to upgrade version (or mention the v2.3.1 - v2.3 is enough).
Thanks for mentioning the problem!
thanks alex, i can continue with the upgrading now :)
I've decided to update my first game 'Excalibur Dizzy' to use DizzyAGE 2.4 as I'm told it won't work on Windows 7. It was created in DizzyAGE 1.31.
I have a problem with the room names. Some of them keep disappearing. Usually the first 5 rows work ok, it is the rooms below this where there is mainly a problem. When I type in the room names again, sometimes it just ignores my input and the room name stays blank. Other times it will work only to disappear again later.
I don't know if anyone has updated a game from DizzyAGE 1.31 to 2.4 but I'm finding this problem really weird.
I've not upgraded from v1.31 to v2.4, but i did upgrade DWD and TTD to v2.2, which went ok. I just checked DWD and there seem to be no room names missing

Not sure about the room names thing right now, but check the history.txt and I think there is another document there about upgrading. Most differences were introduced in v2.0 The rest are just new features or bug fixes.
