View Full Version : New DM mapping tool download link (Alpha)

12-02-2008, 03:28 PM
Hi all
In the thread http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?t=3490 I mention an ambitious mapping tool (well, in fact is a DM tool that includes a mapping app). Today I have uploaded the installation files so you can give it a try.

Go to http://www.steekr.com/n/50-17/share/LNK53584936d7929738d/. and download it.
DMHelper_0.8.12.zip doesn't includes any runtime, nor setup. Simply unzip the file in a folder and run dmhelper.exe. If you don't have any runtime the app won't work.

At the time you can generate region maps (color, temperature and heightmap maps); put, move, and search for local pins (there are some villages, castles and cityes icons); zoom in and out, use a customizable grid and a minimap, etc

If it does everything you say it will, then it sounds impressive. Unfortunately, I don't have whatever runtime you're using, so it won't run for me.

Don't worry Midgardsormr, It's probable you dont need any runtimes... Give it a try... And If you need the runtime libraries I can post them...

Erm... I did give it a try.

"Run-time error '339':

Component 'MSCOMCTL.OCX' or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid"

I could probably track down the missing file(s), but I'm in finals week, and that seems like a poor use of my time (he says as he posts on a web forum).

Check this link (http://www.lancelhoff.com/2008/03/11/component-mscomctlocx-or-one-of-its-dependencies-not-correctly-registered/) - if/when you have time.

Thanks. Allow me to hit you in the face with my rep-mallet.

Dangers of running TinyXP, probably.
