    that's really unfortunate, if it doesn't save perhaps try doing a saveas. also check your version, maybe you have one of the broken versions that doesn't save properly.

    It really did suck... But I just went ahead and re made the maps. This time I used Edit Map ;)
    Thanks for making such an amazing editor! It works really well and I hope to see this editor go far! I've already made 2 maps and I got a 3rd one in progress.

    Could you explain in more detail? What do you mean by "it did not work" ?

    Well for me it doesn't work either. I install it, and get to the Force Update part and then it freezes and nothing else happens :(

    If you guys are talking about the freezes thats normal.
    The freezes mean its updating so all you have to do is wait a couple of minutes and it should be ready.

    Well, the icon goes like this: Untitled.png
    And then it's impossible to open the window. I waited the couple of minutes and my internet is at max. I changed the settings.txt to my screen resolution and it still won't work. Maybe I did something wrong even if I followed by the book. Please help, and I hope I'm not the only one with this problem or I would feel like an idiot :p

    Well as long as you launched it from the launcher and you wait it will EVENTUALLY work.
    I just went and did stuff til it worked. It SHOULD work as long as you wait.

    yearg I really regret not making a downloading bar/progress meter for the updater, but yea if you stop the launch mid way the .exe wont properly download then when you try to launch it directly without the updater it will give you an error like "not an actual x64 or x86 application" you get this error because the file is corrupted because you may have stopped the updater mid way through. If your still having issues either do a force update or delete version.txt

    Just a follow up did you guys get the updater/launcher to work. If not I might as well just make a new launcher, that gives you a progress update bar. (the bar wouldn't be that great, it would be based on file count not bytes downloaded) but better than nothing. The launcher will still go inactive but it would still show progress. as long as you didn't bother it. the main problem would be redistribution.
    --
    My solution from doing it from the current launcher would be to download it as a seperate .exe and also a new .exe for the actual editor that would delete the old one. I would also bundle the new launcher in the base download/make it available by it's self.

    Hi Verra, I'm not sure if you want suggestions but I'll go ahead and throw in my 2 cents :) I've found, creating maps from a new map to be extremely tedious, filling in the ground, or creating caves, perhaps you could add in different brush, that place multiple blocks at one time?

    A grid would also be handy, for counting width and height, that sort of thing. Currently, I have a few maps I've made where I have counted out every 10 tiles, for measurement and I open that when making maps, using it as my base. It works fine and your tool is fantastic, but it would be MUCH nicer if I didn't have to do that :P

    Anyways, thanks so much ^+^
