Help for a Newbie

Post by trekkermj » Wed Aug 08, 2007 2:53 am

I broke down and bought the three game package and have been enjoying it quite a bit. I've wanted to create a map based on a series of books I have read and thought I had a good map. However, I tried to use the Conquest Map Editor and can't figure it out. So, I've got two questions.

First - Is there a basic tutorial/walkthru on how to get a map in from the bitmap stage? The help/F1 shows controls but not how to get things down.

Second - The main issue I'm seeing right now is that the bottom bar says "No Territories Defined". I figure if I can define a territory I'll be on the first step. Unfortunately, I can't get the #, X and Y fields to accept any input. How do I get to that step? Does it require Continent definition first? Help!

Thanks in advance!

While it would be extremely helpful, I don't want to monopolize your time like that. What if I were to send you the map and you could see the file and see if you could open it up. That way I can rule out/confirm map issues and user input error.

Let me know if you might be up for that.

Thanks!
