Job: Screenshots of all Chaos Maps w/ Grid Lines


#1

This project is something that should benefit Chaos, the MWLL wiki, and possibly the map repos. There used to exist a blog called mwllmaps.com for custom maps. It was a place to showcase maps and provide download services. It has long since gone offline. The old forum is still up but no one knows for how long. That was the primary place for new map information. We need high quality pictures or screenshots of CHaos March maps. The trouble is we cannot just lift it from the forum, old blog, or the map files. We need specific maps with the grids on them for the project relating to Chaos. The other places could still use the mini map or pictures of the maps. There is also a need for a identifying screenshot. I would be happy to set aside some time to use the server to help with this project. Finally, this information could also help for any future enhanced stats page to showcase the current map being played. Yes, its a good amount of work but it could be done qucikly on a day with a couple of volunteers. The usefulness for the community would be worth the work I think.

Example Work. The wiki has the stock maps rather well summed up. They are missing the grid lines that we need for the event. But this is the information we are looking for as an example.

MWLL WIki
Map TC Deathvalley
Size 8K
Map Picture
Minimap Picture (missing grid lines)


#3

Updating: Grid lines not needed right away. A single high rez of the mini map or overlay as found in the map folder is fine. We can add grid lines easily using this tool afterwards for a second picture.

Batch coverting the minimap .dds to png or jpeg should be doable. I’ll try that tonight.

Every map from the map pack now has the mini map extracted. Each image was converted to png. This does not include stock maps, but those can be pulled from the wiki. The grid lines can be added using that online program (finding link). The following link has the images in a zip file.

This is the tool we want to add for the event: http://betweenthebits.com/forums/topic/can-you-support-my-game/

  1. we have the images now in the preferred png format.

  2. Need to add grid lines, suggest using this tool to do it http://gametactic.org/generate_grid.html
    The grid is to be created as a seperate image. The online tool uses the grid image to overlay the mini map image.

  3. Need to include the map names, for the event that is as follows:

  4. Icons? Since mwll does not have any ? We might use the old and specific ones for other games.

  5. Submit game name, map names, map png image, map png? grid image, and any icons to this thread, or emailed or forum post to game tactics.

Images sent to gametactics. Waiting to hear reply.


#6

Have not received a reply yet. Might need to follow up on the gametactics forum.


#7

@Meldric I have not had luck getting a response from the gametactics site. I am not sure if my email went through. Would you suggest I post on the forums there?


#8

Yeah, Forum is a possibility! I will also fire a mail to the guy I was already in contact with. Just in case…
I have written a mail as well. Will see if there is a response. Meanwhile, the forum might be a valid option for a secondary channel.
