Topic Subject: The darkness?

I just recently purchased Age of wonders: masters collection.

and it has been some years since I have played age of wonders, the first game.

It didn't take me very long to remember how to work most parts of the editor.

What I am failing to remember how to do is to bring the "darkness" back to the terrain. I am only able to bring the fog of war up.

every map that I edit/make, I am not able to get the blackness back up that initially covers up the fog of war.

Any help will be muchly appreciated.

Just start a game with exploration turned on, and you'll get the blackness

Silly question, how do I do that?
By the way, Thank you very much for the speedy response.

Run the game. From the main menu, select Scenario, then Single Computer, and select the scenario you created in the editor. Make sure the Exploration option is turned on. Select the race you want to play and set the other options to your desire. Click on "Start!".

thank you.

Went to try that. Did everything like you said. I get there and the exploration tab is already checked in. I start scenario and it still doesn't cover the un-explored parts of the map up.

Also, I do get the covered up map when i do normal scenarios that I haven't touched.

Can you send me the map you made so I can check what happens with it? My email address is in my profile at this forum.

Ok I can do that. Just got to find the file real quick and I will send you it. it's just a small change of the 'after the fall' map.

e-mail sent.

Hmm, I don't know what might be causing your problem. When I start a game on the map you sent me, I see the black areas normally. Perhaps you can take a screenshot showing what it looks like when you start the game and send it to me? (use the PrintScreen key, and then paste it to a graphics editor like Paint).

(Btw it's a modified version of Oracle's Eye, not After the Fall.)

I think i figured my problem out. and oops, thought I sent the after the fall mod map. anyways.

I think my error is in the fact that I had gone into the map to fix it after we had already started to play.

by 'fixing' a saved game map makes all the black part of the map revealed, plus it turns off the fog of war.

So this here is human error definitely on my part. I will have to make sure my things are as how I want them before going in and playing. No more modifying after i start the scenario.

That's interesting, I didn't know that I can open a saved game in the editor...

yea, just like this:
open AoWED> click 'Open'. it will naturally open to 'custom'. if you click the 'folder up' button twice is will bring you to the age of wonders folder showing all these files: "Dict, EDIMAGES, EmailIn, EmailOut, Images, int, Release, Save, Scenario, Sfx, Songs, TCMaps, and User."

If you click the 'Save' folder, it will show all the game saves you have made. from there just click and choose what game save you want to open up. and Presto, there it is.
