Thread: Trouble getting the Official Map Editor to work

    Default Trouble getting the Official Map Editor to work

    I followed the steps up until I had to copy "Keeper.cfg"--I could not find such file so I skipped that file and I did everything else, but when I started it up, the screen flashed then crashed back to desktop--I am hoping that's all I need.

    it's in the main directory of your dungeon keeper folder, but you can make one too. Simply make a new, empty text file, rename it to keeper.cfg and put the text from step4 in it, modified to your specification of course.

    I created a text file with this:
    INSTALL_PATH=E:\Keeper Editor\
    INSTALL_TYPE=MAX
    LANGUAGE=ENG

    still the same

    Try the install path as specified in step 4. Check if you did all other steps correctly.

    You can also try loading it with DxWnd. It's a small program to download.

    I tried step 4 as specified, when that didn't work, I tried the step I posted, I downloaded DXWnd, how do I load it with that?

    You add it. I have no special configurations:

    In the LVL‘s folder I have 4 files, with a blank levels text document— do I need to put anything in that file?
    I can’t seem to get it to work but I’ll triple check everything again

    At the very start of this tutorial there's level files to download, that go on top the levels from the game. Above step1 even.

    I have tried with both in the self-made Keeper.cfg file

    INSTALL_PATH=.\
    INSTALL_TYPE=MAX
    LANGUAGE=ENG

    and the actual path

    INSTALL_PATH=E:/keeperfx/editor
    INSTALL_TYPE=MAX
    LANGUAGE=ENG

    still the same, when I click on the editor, the screen flashes black for a few seconds then crashes

    are you saying to copy the files in the "emtylevels" folder into the 'levels' folder of KeeperFX, where the folders 'classic' 'deepdngn' 'legacy' 'lost lvls' 'personal and standard folders are?
