BZEdit 1.6.5 Released

Post by DTRemenak »

BZEdit 1.6.5 has been released. This is a minor update from 1.6.4 which primarily fixes a number of bugs.

http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/bzfl ... e?download

Changelog:
* Prompt before saving when quitting, instead of saving without asking
* Instead of just skipping options, world, dynamiccolor, texturematrix, and material blocks, store them and write them back out to the map when saving
* Fixed the saving of flipz'ed pyramids which were also passthrough (bug 1196352)
* Fixed problems which occured when many items were deleted
* Fixed some memory leaks that caused ugly graphical problems

I don't know of any additional bugs. If you know of some and how to trigger them, by all means post.
I have no intention of adding 2.0 features to bzedit. You cannot change my mind, don't try. Patches welcome ;).

he didnt really add the features, he just made it to where you can look at maps with new features (i think)

There is no bzedit for Mac OS X. Sorry, you're out of luck. I had to all hand code, so that's what you have to do. :(

Egh. I guess someone else can do my 3 map ideas for me, then. I have no idea how to hand-code it, since I really need to have visuals for me to do it right. Text does nothing for me. :roll:

the absence of bzedit on mac OS X has forced me to learn how to hand code. It's not difficult (and personally, i think bzedit is kinda cheating!)
If you want help, try the bzflag wiki http://www.bzflag.org/wiki/MapMaking on mapmaking.

I also advise downloading other people's maps and seeing how they made it.

and also check out RPG's mapatorim : http://www.garrettsites.net/bzmaps/index.php

I agree with all that, 100%. :D
Also check out JPA's page on some of the 2.0.x stuff you can do (which the cheaters (j/k) using BZEdit can't).

bzedit still has some bugs like, if the base is off the ground the height will go to one. and it doesnt show the height of the bases when it is on the ground.

the groups are not used. They were a feature that was never implemented.

the omap is for a testing tool that is not used in mainline bzflag map development..

you got your axis to move? I think your camera just moved. Right click and drag and see what happens.
