File Description

[quote]Changes: * Added Object mode (F4): + It will now display static objects, control points, spawners, soldier spawns and trees. + You can now add, delete, move, rotate, scale, flip and mirror static objects. + Left click to select, right drag to change, Return for properties. + Mouse Wheel or PageUp/PageDown for moving object up and down. + Insert for cloning selection. * Added a tool that fills the entire map with current layer. * Added undo capability on Heightmap and Material map. * Added color adjust layer for adjusting brightness, contrast and saturation, helps a lot for layers reuse. * Added geometry transform layer for translating, scaling and rotating layers and textures. * Editor42 will now adapt to provided texture space (textures don't need to be 1024 anymore) + They must all be the same size throughout the level though. * Editor42 will now adapt to provided worldsize (no more worldsize 4 times heightmap). * Material map no longer needs to be the same size as heightmap.

Minor changes: * Added arrow keys moving just like ASDW. * Changed some very ugly icons. * Changed init.con path structure . + editor.openLevel no longer needs a dummy parameter (xxx). + editor.path.level must no longer have $levelName. + Added editor.path.base config line referred as$basePath. + Added editor.path.texture config line. + Added editor.path.object config line. + Added editor.path.standardMesh config line. * Added dialog to easily reconfigure above directories. * Minimap now display static objects. * Minimap generation now uses hardware acceleration. * Maps without all ground textures can now be loaded anyway (Berlin). * Added editor.forceDefaultMesh config to disable mesh loading. * Added editor.display.objectMaxDistance to tweak max object distance. * Changed color when out of texture coordinate space to gray instead of red. * Added a progress dialog when performing lengthly operation. * Added a editor.display.fov option in init.con. * Texture layer name now defaults to texture file name.

Bug fixes: * Fixed color dialog picker always initializing on black. * Fixed road paver stuck to bell brush. * Fixed library list scrolling horizontaly rather than verticaly. * Fixed minimap brighting being too bright in some situation. * Fixed rem lines in editor's init.con corrupting the file when writing. * Removed an annoying debug message when loading texture layers. * Fixed non layer .txt truncating the layers library list. Was common with readme.txt.

INSTALLATION
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
READ CAREFULLY SINCE THIS SECTION HAS CHANGED.

- Uncompress this archive into any directory.

NOTE:
The provided init.con is a configuration file used by the editor, it must be in
the same directory as the editor itself. Do not use previous version init.con.

NOTE:
Provided library directory must be a subdirectory of editor42.exe directory.

- Makes sure your levels are all uncompressed in the same directory. It is
recommended that your directory's path end with \bf1942\levels\ with a base
directory in front so that it will be easier to unpack and repack them to and from RFAs.

Exemples with base = c:\bfdev
c:\bfdev\bf1942\levels\bocage
c:\bfdev\bf1942\levels\market_garden
c:\bfdev\bf1942\levels\my_level

- Your objects, standard meshes and textures should be located and located in the same
base directory as above.

Exemples with base = c:\bfdev
c:\bfdev\objects\
c:\bfdev\standardMesh\
c:\bfdev\texture\

- For displaying trees, make sure you converted the treemesh (.TM) to standardmsh (.SM).
The file names should be the same, except for the extension of course. Just drop these
with the shaders (.RS) in the standardMesh directory. Be aware that it could significantly
drop the frame rate.

NOTE:
Objects, texture and standard meshes need to be UNCOMPRESSED for Edito42
to display them correctly, else it will use default box model and texture.

DIRECTORIES REVIEW:
c:\bfdev\
This is the base directory. In config, $basePath will be replaced by this one upon opening. c:\bfdev\bf1942\levels\ This is where your levels go. c:\bfdev\objects\ This is where you uncompress OBJECTS.RFA files. c:\bfdev\standardMesh\ This is where you uncompress STANDARDMESH.RFA files. There should be no subdirectory in this one. If you want to display trees, you must drop StandardMesh version of them here, along with their shaders. c:\bfdev\texture\ This is where you uncompress TEXTURE.RFA files. - The first time Editor42 runs, it will ask for several directories. If you set up your directories as above, you will only need to specify base directories, all others will be set automatically like above. If you use some other directory for storing uncompressed object, textures and meshes, change the other options accordingly. If you want to change these directories at a later time, go in File->Directories...
