If you found and bugs in the current Flame or sharpFlame, then post in this thread.

Control map format version through an extra file in tilesets and objectdata.

Map format version (which is also savegame format version) is stored in game.map in the second 32-bit word. Current version supported on -master is 39 (the constant is called CURRENT_VERSION_NUM in the game source), and the oldest supported version is 10 (hardcoded in mapLoad()). The game uses this number to detect explicit incompatibilities with maps.

Whenever new stuff is added to the game's tileset or objectdata (and later to the editor's tileset and objectdata), the new maps become incompatible with the old game. Hence, it is necessary to bump version format. Since the old tileset and objectdata can still be loaded into the editor, the editor executable is a bad place to hardcode map format. The map format version written into the map should be the maximum of the tileset format and the objectdata format version.

Such feature would allow us easily expanding tilesets and objectdata in new game releases without running into crashes or undefined behaviors.

Just now, i am making a new map in Rocky-style and i am badly missing a feature like the boulders in Arizona-maps. I know, i can use this feature in every style, but it looks very bad on snow. I need this feature to block a high-plateau near the base. I don`t want, that transporters are able to land there. I could use some tiles, changing them to cliff faces. But the map is more or less near the finish and in this case it would be necessary to prove the whole map , if there is this cliff face tile anywhere. Horrible job. We have the boulders in Arizona, why not in urban and in Rocky? This blocking feature is very important. It is a pity, that i can`t program :(
In case the WZ-game ends in a draw , the game winner will be determined by penalty shoot-out.

Sometimes i use the generator for heightmap ideas. Something is going wrong there. Here is an example: I give the player No.1 for the base the y-coordinate 90 and the generator change to 64. That means-he calculate 76 (which is x in the map width) - 12 = 64. But the map has 117 as y-height. 105 would be logical. It doesn`t matter how large the base-area is defined. It is everytime the same problem.

BTW, if people can post pics of the WYSIWYG issues (like, flame shows one thing, and the game has it as something else) that would be great as well!
