Re: Converting levels to R'n'D level file format

I hadn't tried it yet. So, if I would remove the read-only of those levels, saving it would be R'n'D format. Got it :)

Re: Level playfield size limit of 128x128 tiles

That should be easy, thanks! :D

Maybe you're right about the size limit.

Is there a way to have a small overview map of the entire level (or significant) in the corner of the screen to see where you are located?

Re: Rocks'n'Diamonds 4.2.0.5 released!

Nice. I know the Netherlands and Belgium have it (I'm kind of in between) and heard Poland has it. Probably parts of Germany as well then.

Converting levels to R'n'D level file format

Is it possible to 'Save As' in the level editor, some way or other? A few weeks ago I implemented loading of RND level files in C#. Also saving of the field which is all I need now. But I didn't look into the other formats, like Emerald Mine format, for example. If I could just convert them that wou...

Level playfield size limit of 128x128 tiles

Is it possible to significantly increase this limit, like at least double or quadruple it? Or would it require additional work and recompilation? I was thinking it would be cool to have huge mazes. As I looked for info on this I found this post from August 2006: https://www.artsoft.org/forum/viewtop...

Re: First post here

Sounds correct, but FYI I didn't get any notification of approval but when posting those first comments, after pressing the 'post' button, there's a message saying they need approval before appearing. I missed that message when I posted my first comment. In case I caused you confusion.... :)

Re: Level files / ConfEdit

I see. I got it running now from the command line giving it a level file. So it's purely a viewer. Seems it doesn't load the map size correctly, as RnD has changed over the years.

I will write my level file tool to have some functionality for map modifications.

Level files / ConfEdit

Hello there. I got ConfEdit running. It is supposed to have a level viewer (viewer for .level files) in it, doesn't it? Only I can't find any way to get the level viewer running (LevelView.exe). Can someone tell me how to get into that level viewer? Does it have map editing capabilities? I programme...
