Problems with the map editor

Post by KidC » 25 Jun 2008, 05:13

I downloaded Tiled and got it to run fine. I couldn't find any update zip files at all so I searched online and found an ftp with all the files. I placed all the right files to the right folders minus some items and sprites. Whenever I try to import .pgn files it says no reader plugin exists for this file type. Whenever I load a map file it says null. Can anyone help? I'd really like to get this started up.

:-P Most of it came from trying to import instead of setting up a new tileset. A lot of maps won't load at all still though. Is that normal?

Thats happens because of how Tiled loads stuff. Please read this post.

That's because you try to load the PNG files as maps and not as tilesets.
Whenever I load a map file it says null.
That's usually because the tilesets aren't found at the location relative to the map mentioned in the map file.
