Thank you for the response, I solved the screen shot issues by using the saveclipboardimages program I found here. Thanks again.

Is there a way to edit the Gens.cfg file to make it automatically open at 4 times the normal size with 25% Scanlines enabled? I could always do it manually by stretching the screen but it always defaults back to the original once size after I close the program.

I have opened the .cfg file but I'm not sure what to change.

Last question, why can't I take screen shots when I stretch the screen, they come out as broken images?

I'm not sure there's much point in mapping a 3d game to look like the rendered in-game graphics.  Once you get to that level of detail a simplified map (like the ones a lot of games have in-game) is more useful.

Even aesthetically speaking, I don't think it would be too grand as something would inevitably be hidden.

But I think Special T was talking about 2d games anyway.

Yupe I was talking about 2d games but I would also like to take a crack at games like final fantasy tactics or Jeanne D'ARC. I'm fairly confident that I could map out the battles. I've been doing a LOT of research on modding my PSP to allow me to take in game screen shots / movies so it may become a reality. I'll let you guys know if it works out, wish me luck.

So I'm done mapping all the towns in Phantasy Star for the master system, I'll upload them to the site late this week after I optimize the png files, but I wanted to move onto a PSP game next. Does anyone know how to map psp games or even get screen shots of them?

Why not try Xpadder I have been using it for a while and it works great for me, you can map almost any key to a joypad.

One last question as I'm almost done with the game.

I was trying to create a world map of the 3 planets, I know they are already available and can easily be downloaded but I just wanted to know this for future reference.

The water moves so when I take a screen shot of every frame the autostitcher isn't able to piece the map together like it normally would. Is their anyway I can make the on screen graphics freeze while I'm walking around the planet?

Thanks for the info, but I still think I'll wait and replay the whole retranslated game from the beginning.

I'm sure it will be more enjoyable playing your version from start to finish.

I've been away for a few weeks, hence slow to respond.

1. Masks seem a bit funny, changing colour depth seems to help. I'll fix it if I get a chance.

2. It only accepts BMP because that's quick and easy to handle. I could add in a PNG library with a little effort. Since you'd have to PNG-optimise anyway (no general purpose program can hope to compress as well as PNGOut, for example), saving as BMP shouldn't matter.

PNG conversion should be lossless, unless you use some screwy software to do it.

I hope you're playing through the Phantasy Star retranslation, by the way. The maps are unaltered.

Wow I didn't realize you work on that project... and sadly I already started the original game which I must say is rather bland.

As soon as I finish playing the original game I'll give the retranslation a try since it seems as though the story has been flushed out.

Thanks for your hard work on the autostitcher and the retranslation.

Thanks for the response.

I'll upload all the maps once I've completed the whole game.

Well good news I have completed 8 town maps for Phantasy Star for the Master System. I could go faster but I'm actually playing the game too so it's taking longer than expected. I'll upload them here once I'm done!

If anyone can answer the above questions in my previous post, please do because I'm interested in hearing the answers. Thank everyone for your help!

This first map I made, I turned off the character sprite instead of making a mask. When I tried to make a mask (only black and white pixels) and load it into the autostitcher it freezes. Any ideas what's going on?

Also why does your program only except .bmp files should it except a lossless image type such as .png or.tiff?

Thanks for the tip RT 55J, what do you normally save them as PNG?

Maxim, Honestly I'm a sega fan boy too, I would like to map all the phantasy star / shining force games!!!!

If I find any other emulators that support this function I'll let you know. Thanks for your help!

Wow thanks, it works perfect now!

I just wanted to test it out so I entered the first town in phantasy star and took 3,802 picutres I used your program and this is what it came out with.

I would still need to fix the edges but that other than that your program is awesome!

What emulators do you use for the other systems to take a screen capture per frame?
