Mapping Tips/Guides / 3 Requests
« on: July 08, 2009, 01:10:55 pm »
I have several DOS games in mind that I'd like to make maps for. But I'd like to do this in an automated way.

First task is taking screen shots. I use Gadwin Printscreen to save a file but I'd have keep hitting printscreen, then move, then hit printscreen some more. Is there a program that will continually take screenshots, say once a second?

Next is masking. For one game I can access the editor mode and look over the whole area but after I get the screenshots I'd want to remove the interface from the bottom portion. That's a tedious task. Is there a program that will apply a given mask to all the files in a folder?

Finally I've seen mentioned in a few topics a program for stitching screenshots together. Could someone explain how to use it?

Map Requests / A Nightmare on Elm Street by Monarch

This game came out in 1989 for Commodore 64 and DOS PCs. As far as I know no one has made a map of the levels or even written a guide for it. Does anyone have this game and is willing to put the time into it, or know of a way to read the data directly from the files?
