Townedit for DW1 will not work
« on: November 03, 2016, 01:09:58 am »
I can get dosbox74 to work with some things, but Townedit will not work. I have a windows 7 64 bit, and supposedly dosbox is for 32 bit, but it does work with dw1mde.

Why not townedit???

I only have a few more things I want to find in DW1 (all 5 of them are map related). If I can get this friggin townedit to work, then I should be all set. I get this error in dosbox saying (advanced features not available) WTF is going wrong here!!!

SliverX would likely be able to help you with this, as they did an total conversion called Dragoon X Omega for that game.

I put all the Townedit files into the Dosbox74 folder, and it does work now.

There is one very strange thing though. It asks me for a file name, and then it loads and saves within Townedit. I can see saved changes, but there is no .nes file anywhere to be found. The program is saving internally...

???

I have had a hard time with certain programs before, but I have never seen this before. Where is my .nes file?

Is your original file name using a proper 8.3 filename? Up to 8 characters, a period, and an up to three character extension, no spaces. Probably some other rules I forgot.

I tried various file names, and nothing works. Even the default name doesnt give me a .nes file.

I inboxed SliverX, so hopefully he can shed some light on this for me.

I found the .nes file by clicking in the upper right search screen.

I clicked on date modified, and todays date, and it showed me the folder it was in.

It is in... Users\Joe73\Appdata\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)

So if anyone else runs into this problem, then just search date modified in local C. This is for windows 7, so Im not sure what would work in other versions of windows.

Wow, that is some ancient history I haven't heard about in decades.
