That's too bad, but at least all the maps will be available some day, hopefully. Hope you have something else to fall back on as far as mapping is concerned (unless you're a more balanced person than me without a compulsive need to map games) :)

Huh? Well, their tool does everything you wanted, their maps are incomplete and not in the more standard just-a-PNG-file format... why not use their tool to finish the job?

By extreme discouragement, do you mean people discouraging you, or do you actually mean extreme lack of ENcouragement?

I think we've had our fill of your personal encouragement on Donkey Kong maps, Ultimate Koopa.  :P



I'm guessing Raccoon Sam was disappointed that someone beat him to the punch.



And yet, as Maxim said, their maps are incomplete...

Well, here's the output from the DKC Resource Extraction Tool over on DKC Atlas:

Obviously there's still work to be done before submitting them. I won't be the one who does it...

If I weren't so busy lately I'd definitely lend a hand in assembling these. It looks very doable now.

Yeah, by discouragement I meant that I feel a bit pushed down upon finding someone who already made a superior tool and obsoleted our promising start. They say it's a work in progress and updates sporadically.

But hey, we still could do a VGMaps exclusive I guess. I don't think they'd want us to go and take the maps from their site.

About the DKC Resource Extraction Tool... when I tried to generate the level maps, it just crashed... is this yet another one of those "I really shouldn't have brought that tripe that is... Vista" things?

... I was going to post about the fact that the program crashes, but I see I already mentioned it... however, I tried it again, but it still crashed, or "stopped working". Is it simply a "Vista-related" thing?

I know there's an edit feature, but that doesn't "bump" it. Now, please, I know you hate DKC, but can you tell me WHY it crashes when I try and generate the level maps? And if you don't know, then at least say you don't know, so I KNOW, please?

I would help, but...I honestly don't know. But at least now you know. =P

<_< but I'd still prefer it if someone DID know... but at least I know people haven't totally ignored this.
