    I put six start locations, in the Fraser valley (my locale), Newfoundland, and four up north. The placements were because me and this friend were going to try to play above regent for the first time, and then it crashed.
    I know it's dull, I just didn't want to have people building size 24 cities in NW territories. I was going to do it over with tundra, but I figured whats the point if I can't play it.
    I can load it in the editor, and do anything I want with it, but when I play it, it crashes after I've built my second city. The same problem happens when I play 256x256 maps made with this utility by others.

    great!
    i managed to load it in the editor - worked fine, allthough the map looks a bit dull. all those forrests...

    when i've got a bit more time i'll look if i can test it.

    however: i couldn't find any starting locations. maybe i just oversaw them because it's such a large map... but if you don't have any, that might be the reason why it doesn't/didn't work.

    oh... wait, last chance for solution:
    maps used to be different sizes. huge was IIRC 180x180 and large was something around 140x140 (check out the manual for exact details). maybe the size of the image wasn't right...

    can you post your source image and the generated file?

    Yes, in the regular Civ3 1.29f, it just says the map is corrupt.

    did you also try using the civ3-editor (and not the PTW editor)?

    That shouldn't be your problem.

    I was using 1.14f PTW
    Might that be the problem?

    may PM one of the great map makers here and at CFC. kal-el, TETurkhan, Marla, el mencey, ...
    otherwise it might be time for someone to reprogram this tool for 1.29f maps

    load the converted map in the editor and save it as another file. that should convert it into an actual version you can use for the game.

    however: this might not work... but try it

    I think LookANinja is gone. It would have been nice of him to release his source code before leaving.

    What do you mean, load, resave?

    cloutier: this utility generates a very very old format. you might have to convert it with the editor (load, resave).

    i don't know what else to do...
