Up-to-date download link for map2gl
« on: March 23, 2019, 06:54:31 PM »
I'm trying to extract some map assets & textures from the original FFT CD. As I understand, the map2gl utility should be able to do this. I was only able to find a live download link for map2gl on one site, https://www.romhacking.net/utilities/536/. The executable from this link is able to run and view maps, but doesn't have the export option. This thread (http://ffhacktics.com/smf/index.php?topic=6809.msg143936#msg143936) seems to suggest that a kind user here added the export feature in a later update, but all links I can find to that update are dead.

Does anyone know if the updated map2gl with export functionality has a live download link anywhere? Thanks!

Yes, unfortunately that version doesn't seem to have the export texture feature that was mentioned in that thread. (You can export the pre-indexed palettes but not the composited texture).

When I export the textures using this version of map2gl, I get something like this:

And when I export them using Ganesha, I get a grayscale version:

What I am hoping to extract is something that more or less resembles the colors in game, as seen in the aforementioned thread:

    You would need to PM Lirmont. That link has been dead for years. I have it stored somewhere on a drive on my end, but I have about 500-700 backups of FFT stuff, (wish i was kidding but im not, i backup everyday that i do a thing) so me finding it anytime soon is slim to none.
