Map Editor: Ganesha 0.72 Released - Now in Colour
« on: September 07, 2016, 02:48:43 PM »
Hey everyone. A couple of months ago I decided to have a look at the source code for Ganesha (original program made by Gomtuu) and see if I could fix any of the underlying problems, but mainly my goal was to add colour. Well, I finished that after a couple of days, and added a couple of new features. And now I'm finally uploading it after several requests.

Ganesha is now in COLOUR!

The only downside to the program now being in colour is the loading and import speed. Currently it will lag a fair bit, due to my dodgy implementation of code, however it was and still is the only way I can think of implementing it. But in the long run it saves much more time having to continuously import, or test ingame or with map2gl!



While I was there, I decided to implement some other functions as well.

Some of the new features in Ganesha 0.72:
  • Did I mention colour?
  • It is now possible to move the entire map in one button press (note: do not move into negative zones due to terrain values!). Simply press 'u' to open the menu
  • Rotate Face and Rotate about Vertex buttons in the polygon edit window
  • Fixed layout, per request
  • Added -20 and +20 buttons for the UV movement, per request


Well, I hope you like the new Ganesha. It was a lot of effort but definitely worth it! Enjoy  :cool:

Download link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/svrzun6ekhkkgux/ganesha-0.72.rar?dl=0

Installation instructions:
         Step 1: Follow all steps here: http://ffhacktics.com/smf/index.php?topic=10013.0
         Step 2: Unzip ganesha-0.72.rar
         Step 3: Copy the folder inside ganesha-0.72 called ganesha-0.6 (I did not change the name of this folder for a reason! Leave it as ganesha-0.6).
         Step 4: Paste it to the location of ganesha-0.6 (The normal location is most likely Program Files) and let it overwrite the files!

And done, you should be able to run Ganesha normally through the shortcut that was made during your initial installation (hence why we don't change the folder name ;))


Lastly a big thanks to Gomtuu for creating the vanilla program that I was able to slightly decipher and get something more out of it. All props to you!

    <@Elric> I agree to that as well
    At the end of the day, are we not all trapped inside lemons?
