This script is a command-based script for the display of text-based maps, and is primarily geared towards GMs.

Maps must be saved in (your script directory)/Map_viewer. File extension shouldn't matter, but just in case, use .txt.

The script displays 'altered' maps based on maps from the script's folder, changing the location of 'x', according to x/y coordinates. If x is already present in the file, it is removed upon being parsed by the script.

  • Map alteration(without modifying the underlying map), to display a singular point on the map, to represent a group or such.


== Zip Compression ==

  1. Download the file below and go to \AppData\Roaming\mIRC\ / your mirc folder(which can also be found by typing '//echo -a $mircdir' in mirc), and extract the zip file 'Map_viewer' into it. When asked to merge folder 'scripts', select 'yes'.
    1. If your mirc folder is in your appdata folder, you will likely have to un-hide your appdata folder, as it is normally hidden. To do this, go into the folder containing appdata, and open folder options(found under the 'organize' menu in windows 7, find the 'view' tab, and select 'show all hidden folders and drives'. Apply your changes and the folder should now be visible.
    2. Upgrade: If this is an upgrade, and windows asks you replace 'map_gen.mrc', click yes. From there, go back to mirc. There should now be a prompt window asking you to reload the script, as it has been changed by another program. Click yes.
    3. Then, open mirc's script editor, click the 'remotes' tab, and go to File>Load. Navigate to scripts\Map_viewer\map_gen.mrc and load the script.
    4. In scripts\Map_viewer, create your map file. Example input:
      Code: Select all
      ___ ______ ___ | | | | | |___|_ ____|_ _| | | | | | | | |___|______|_ _| \ | | | | \____|___|_ _|
    5. That's it, the script is ready to use. An example map has been included for testing/demonstration purposes.

    Just type in '/map mapname.ext x y' any time you want to display the map, where x/y are numbers denoting the location that x should appear on the map. x is counting up from left to right, and y is counting up from top to bottom. Example: '/map map1.txt 2 2'
