Importing Map Zones
 
Hey all,

I know on zMapper there was a method to import and export zones between seperate maps. Is there anyway to do this on CMUD?

Cheers,

Scarn

Yea, but its real hard and not suggested, easier to just remap.

If only I asked that question 3 days ago, before I downloaded zMapper and all these converters and drove myself mad trying to do it... would all be mapped by now!

It's funny; in the last week we've gotten questions from four or five people about modifying attributes which can't be done in script except by direct modification of the map database. I don't think we've had any questions like that for well over a year before that! :)

I didn't think ZMapper had that functionality...if it does, then you need CMud, Zmapper, and the MapConvert utility. Convert, import, convert back, profit!

Unfortunately ZMapper import functionality is useless. It doesn't let you import a zone like we would like to. It is only possible to import from some very old .map format, which anyways cannot be created from .mdb nor .dbm.

From an earlier post on this subject:

There is a rather convoluted way to do this, you will need the following tools:

Map Conversion Tool - http://forums.zuggsoft.com/index.php?page=4&action=file&file_id=87

Zone Copy Utility - http://forums.zuggsoft.com/index.php?page=4&action=file&file_id=66

First convert both maps that you want to move things around in with the Conversion tool. You want to go from CMUD to ZMUD format.

Then use the Zone Copy Utility to move the zones you want from one to the other.

Reconvert the final map back to CMUD format with the Conversion tool again.

As always make backups of your files just in case things get corrupted in the process.

When running Zone Copy Utility you may encounter an error of missing comdlg32.ocx file. Here is the solution.

WinXP
1. Download the missing file from this link www.ocxdump.com
2. Put it into your C:\Windows\System32\ folder.
3. ZCU should work right away.

Win7 x64
1. Download the missing file from this link www.ocxdump.com
2. Put it into C:\Windows\SysWOW64 folder.
3. Run cmd.exe with admin privileges (If you don't understand, read this).
4. Type in this: regsvr32 c:\Windows\SysWOW64\comdlg32.ocx And press Enter.
5. The popup will notify you that everything went well and the ZCU should work right away.
