Convert Dune2000 .map to .oramap possible?

Post by Muadib »

The OpenRA Dune2000 map editor is not the most userfriendly map editor. Is it possible to convert maps created in older d2keditors (.map files) to OpenRA .oramap files? Are there other compatible OpenRA D2K editors? Thx

I have been making some maps with the OpenRA editor, it's ok and easy enough to use. Use the copy paste feature to copy parts of bigger tiles.

But if you insist on using other editors, you can do so. You'll have to convert the map using the command line OpenRA utility executable (in your OpenRA install folder)

You'll need to specify the correct tile set, or you will get conversion errors. See https://github.com/OpenRA/OpenRA/wiki/D2k-Map-Tilesets for an example for the command line arguments.

Also note that scripts cannot be converted ( mission triggers etc)
