Re: Newbie Question

Well, with ZT you can have maps, counters/cards, and terrains. With your particular game it would probably be best to either have your track defined as a terrain (to enable you to place and fix it next to the map on your main "Board" tab) or as a map, to keep it fixed and separate on its o...

Re: Newbie Question

Yes, as I suspected you had missed out one line in your .zts file: <layout board="Tracks" /> <?xml version="1.0" encoding="Windows-1252"?> <game game-box="Un Empire En Flammes" scenario-name="Standard" scenario-description="Main Game" scena...

Re: Masks

Yes, I had a look at your Brandy Station Gamebox and converted your .gif Map into a .png and built some mask files for your counters (took a few seconds in Irfanview). I also cropped two single pixel lines (one off the top and one off the bottom) of your Markers so that all counters were 150x150 in ...

Re: Sizing maps when building a game box

Hi Dan, It looks like you're simply running out of memory by trying to load too many graphics files. Because ZT is a 32bit program it cannot load anything more than 2GB into memory. You will also need at least that much RAM on your video card. The dimensions of each file is irrelevant as long as you...

Re: JPG, PNG, and GIF Maps

Hi Uhlan, Yes, GIFs are not recommended, but also please remember that JPEGs, PNGs etc. are simply disk compression formats and that their size (on disk) has no real bearing on the amount of RAM memory they will take up when loaded. I'm certain I can figure out any issues you might have (and your ma...

Well I'm not sure (and a bit rusty!), but have you not simply tried creating a standard .zip folder using Windows?

Hi Pete,

Try changing the scenario-name in your .zts file from "All" to "ILF2.zts".

A quick look suggests that your gamebox text is fine, can you post your scenario file?

It's important to realise that it's the RAM capacity of your computer's graphics card that is the limit in ZunTzu - not system RAM. You should also be aware that the size of compressed files on disk is irrelevant - it's the number of pixels (at 32 bits each) the files contain when loaded and unpacke...

Yes, it works fine on my machine too (also Win10 upgraded from Win7).
