Hey guys,

Over the past week I put together a map manager program for C&C 3. The program allows you to install, delete, and well, manage, your custom C&C 3 maps.

Check it out: http://www.cncgeneralsworld.com/cnc3/mapmanager/

Quote:
<span style="font-weight: bold;">.: Features</span>

  • <span style="font-weight: bold;">Details View:</span> displays a detailed list containing information about each map you have installed

    • Number of Players
    • Size (width and height dimensions)

    • Whether or not it is an official map released by EA

  • <strong>Mini-map View:</strong> displays full-sized mini-maps for each map you have installed, so that you can quickly identify them visually
  • Import maps from .zip files (compressed folders)
  • Import a map from a folder
  • Delete unwanted maps
  • View detailed information about the custom maps you have installed
  • Open maps for editing in Worldbuilder
  • Ability to show a map's physical location in Windows Explorer
  • <span style="font-style: italic;">Windows Vista</span>-compatible


Let me know what you guys think, and if you have any suggestions for future versions - I'll compile a wish-list.

I'm really excited by your program, but I can't get it to work. I already have .net 3.0 installed so I just installed your program. It launches, but when I try to import a .zip, nothing happens. What am I doing wrong?

Thank you!

I actually haven't tested it on a setup with just .NET 3.0 installed. Are you using Windows XP or Vista? Could you post either a link to the .zip file containing the map you're trying to import, or upload the file with your post? (To upload the file with your post, click on the Insert a File icon when replying -- not quick reply.)

When you import the map, it should appear within the map manager.

I think it is an excellent program. My only suggestion is that it could include .rar files as many map makers seem to use that.
Also, it might be useful if the Multiplayer says whether it is Multiplayer only or skirmish as well.

.rar file support will hopefully come in a later version. There may be technical limitations that prevent me from determining whether a map is multiplayer only or skirmish as well, but I will look into that also.

Thanks for your comments guys.

It would also be useful if, with the delete a map function, it also got rid of the photo in the Map Preview.

Good idea, david. I'll definitely include that in the next version.

Map Manager Wishlist (partial listing)
- Remove .tga files from Map Previews folder when deleting a map
- Toolbar with Icons: Import, Delete, View, Edit, Refresh
- Support for importing from RAR files
- Allow dragging and dropping of files/folders to import
- Ability to check for updates
- Localization (German, for starters)
Not everything included in the above list will necessarily make it into the next version.

Ah, so it's not quite bug free. Wink

I'm sending you a private message so that we can work to resolve this issue.

Map is Redzone_Haze_By_JBV3737Pic1.zip By:JBV3737. Anyway, the solution is deleting every file related with that map, that solves the problem and map manager runs again.

Interestingly, I downloaded that map and had no problem importing it. Are you sure that was the one causing the problem?

I investigated a bit further and it seems that Battle Complex Tournament By:thomasalan causes the problem. I'll look into it.
