    Question Where is the CSUAC download?

    I was told to get my hands on the CSUAC for CC3 but I can't find it. Can someone post me a link please? Thank you.

    Well does anyone know of a person that has them all and can upload them as a torrent? That'd be the easiest way to do it.

    If I go to Dundjinni site will I find some on their forums?

    I belive they were packaged up with the CC3 Symbol Set 2.

    I don't think those images were ever licensed for sale to ProFantasy. As I understand things, the license states that only the original compiler (Cecil Solomon) is allowed to distribute the symbols as a collection. That's why nobody else has put the collection up anywhere.

    All of those images should be available through the Dundjinni forums, since, if I recall correctly, that was where they were originally collected from.

    For convenience, here are the relevant paragraphs from the license agreement:

    Reason I said CC3's Symbol Set, is there is a set of Dungeon Symbols that are originally from the CSUAC (or pretty close) from what I remember.

    The CSUAC currently is available legally only at this address:

    http://www.halerecordings.com/gaming...ite=4&start=30

    Note that these are the Dundjinni (TM) versions.

    To use them with Fractal Mapper (TM) 8, you need to add an XML file. For instructions, go to:

    http://www.nbos.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=321

    To use them with CC3, you have to make conversions. There should be info on that at the CC3 forum:

    It's a zip file. You need to extract it but you need all parts of the volume.

    After you unzip it, go to the ProFantasy forums and get information on how to convert the symbols. Using third party PNGs in CC3 is nowhere near as easy as using them in Dundjinni (TM) or Fractal Mapper (TM) 8. For that matter, nothing is as easy in CC3 as in DJ or FM8. Also be prepared for some of the PNGs with transparent backgrounds to turn up with white backgrounds in CC3. CC3 appears to have alpha channel problems with PNGs produced by third party software. There also is discussion of this issue in the CC3 forums at http://www.profantasy,com. You probably would be better off to address these issues there. Ralf Schemmann and the ProFantasy support staff read the forum queries and answer them. I can't give you much help. I got rid of CC3 more than a year ago, and there's a lot that I don't recall about it's technical issues.
