    I haven't had a chance to look through it too thoroughly, in a hurry here, but would that also work with GIMP?

    I'm not a gimp user, Airith, so I can't speak directly to this--although some of our GIMPgurus (namely, RobA) have adapted successfully the procedures from PS, so it must be possible.

    I would suggest you give it a shot & whenever you get stuck, post either in this thread or start a new one and ask for help. I can all but garuntee you'll get it!

    Good luck, and sorry I'm not more help!

    I've worked through it with GIMP. Somewhere I have scribbled noted on the differences from PS at certain steps. The biggest was in the use of layer effects (GIMP doesn't have them).

    Like Don stated, plug through it and if you get stuck, post a question.

    if it's a profantasy product, I suggest you go to their website and ask there. They're pretty good at getting back to people quickly.

    Ah...it may not be vista compatible (I use XP, so I don't know). Is there a contact address on the website? Might be worth shooting an email to the developer.

    Actually it does work in Vista, just bought a new PC and tried it for myself. You may need to run it in an XP Compatible window.

    Nice tutorial. Like your result!

    I couldn't download the program - well I could, but I get

    " The compressed (Zipped ) Folder is invalid or corrupted " then when I try to unzip, it'll tell me it's an empty zip file.

    I've sent an email to them (which you can find on this page ) I'm happy to wait. can't compain with these cool freewares!

    Looking forward to having a go!



    <edit> It's fine now. Installed ok no problems - bit weird that. Anyway I got an email back from Christian with in minutes of my query. I just shutdown Explorer and opened it again. then tried again. If anyone else had similar problems here's his response.

    "I just checked, but it worked without problems. Maybe it helps if you clear your cache/temporary internet files etc., and try again? Probably an error occured during download, and when you try the download again, your PC just takes the corrupted file from you local cache."

    Sadly, it appears that the host website for the Roleplaying City Map Generator is down. I will have to rummage through the home system to see if I can find it later.
