AD Course Editor..need some pointers if possible
Load Config: AD config XML in the save game folder?
Load Map: tried the farm zip(Oakfield..no go on that)
Like I said above, the editor takes a little more to set up than AD itself. With that in mind I was thinking about putting together some simple picture tutorial with some tips to help anyone struggling to get it set up.
For now with regards to your questions;
When you start out with AD and record anything, you need not just to update AD with the little circular arrows button, but you also need to save your game. If not all is lost.
So in your save game folder you will find the AD .xml needed for the AD editor. It's recommended that you copy this to another folder to work on it in the editor.
The "map" AD editor is looking for, is the pda_map_H.dds that you see in game where you buy land ans so on. This file is found in FS19_Oakfield.zip\maps\ , but AD editor cannot read it as a .dds file, but needs it to be converted to .png first. This is where it gets to be slightly complicated
Fortunately "yankee42" has developed an editor for CP, https://github.com/yankee42/courseplay-osm-converter/
already encountered this problem and made a java scrip program to do the converting called courseconvert.jar , I think it even extracts the pda from that map .zip too, but I just do that myself. A direct link to download "yankee42's" cool little courseconvert.jar program here if you struggle to find it on the main site above https://github.com/CourseplayPathEditor ... y-Editor-6
Once you have your AD .xml copied from your save game and your pda converted to .png in your new work folder, open AD editor and load both files.
You will need to maximize the window and scroll on the map with your mouse wheel to get everything in sync. The buttons look like the are still pressed but work none the less.
I will try to attach a converted pda for you to get you going, no idea if it will work
Edit, doesn't want to work...will try and figure a way of doing it...
Ok I tested this out and it works. Here's what you have to do...
Click on the thumbnail below, then right click on the pda and selct save image as, then name it Oakfield.png and put it in your AD editor work folder we made above earlier
NB you can name it as you like, but you must use the .png or it won't work. Good luck.
