Map file size?

  • #1 ✎ 53 JINC_DEV Video Games I like to play video games! Hobbies Pokemon Is Awesome! I love Pokemon! Express Yourself Intermediate Programmer I can make programs, but I still have trouble here and there. Programming Strength So I tried to upload my game but the file was to big, so I had to get gold member ship, but I'm worried that I won't be able to upload it at all when it is complete. And I have found the reason why the file was so big, it was because of map files, so I was wondering if anyone knew how to make all your maps in one file( You obviously can because they give you a lot of space to make the map).

Programming Contest Intermediate Programmer I can make programs, but I still have trouble here and there. Programming Strength First Year My account is over 1 year old Website putting the maps all in one file is pretty simple and I have been using that to do the same but doing this means you can't edit the maos later in the map editor which is why I've been making something that converts it back into four files, though I just recently started on this so I've only got the making it one file ready. Anyways if you just want to upload the finished map you can just save a copy for later use. Anyways if you wanot I can give you the little thing I made to make the files into one. (Though it won't delete the four files, you will have to delete those yourseft after making the one file with it all) Posted

Express Yourself Second Year My account is over 2 years old Website The most common reason for large project sizes is just too many GRP files. Something like a map file for an entire background layer is just going to be around 64 KB (without compression), while a single GRP file is over 512 KB, meaning you can't even fit 8 of them in the 4MB you're given. That's fine for most purposes, except if you're using actual IMAGES for your backgrounds or something. The easiest way to reduce file size is just to not waste space. Put multiple images in each file, put all your sprites and BG tiles in one file, etc. Posted

Programming Contest Intermediate Programmer I can make programs, but I still have trouble here and there. Programming Strength First Year My account is over 1 year old Website Hmm.. ok so just realised one thing, but I'll explain first. First off. This takes an on screen map and saves it into one file, meaning you will first load your map then save it. Which brings me to this, map size, now in most cases people use the default 64x64 map, but for most that don't know, the map can be a max of 127x128. I have no idea what the size of yours is so I'll just make an input. I hit a small snap becausethe map is not saving correctly and only dmsaving one layer so it will take me a bit longer then I thought .. And lastly our familly is going on a small trip today for my dads birthday so I'll be working on it on the drive but won't be able to give it if I finish it until later today Posted

Website Avatar Embargo I didn't change my avatar for 90 days Website Avatar Taboo I didn't change my avatar for 180 days Website I have run into issues with the size of map files as well. What I have been doing is generating small maps from data on another slot, rather than creating them from the map editor. You can learn how to do that here. I have a program that uses this method and connects generated maps very well but it has been a while since I've worked on it. If you are interested in this method, I can annotate the old program and upload it for a limited time. Posted

  • #9 ✎ 60 seggiepants Is there a way to change the map size in Smile Tool's map editor? Mind sharing how you do that? Do I need to download a new map editor, or did I miss something? Posted

    yeah i actually have an edited version of the map editor that i made to put the biggest possible map (127x128), ill grab a key for you but yeah its pretty easy to mod to change it also

    @Gronade You're stressing him/her out. Give him as much time as he needs or even look for some other program that works
