How to add my Map to SandBox Launcher Window (Win 7)

Postby Dököll » June 13th, 2013, 7:35 pm

Hey Dudes and Dudettes!

I am new here...just a quick question, I tried forum results and did not find this, hope I did not miss it. How do I add a Map to the Sandbox Launcher Window. I run Win 7... my kids like the Window (Launcher) that pops up where they can choose their game before PAS launches completely. By the way, kudos to all who have been involved in creating this piece of software. We definitely love PAS here, it is the only software I was able to find to aid with Homeschool activities for our boys and girl. Platinum Arts Sandbox is friendly and easy to use, my kids have no problem understanding how to create own or modify existing games. They are asking a lot of questions I cannot answer, and Google does not have, so I came to the source:-)

Please bare with me on this first question, I'll get better in time.
Here is our effort thus far:

this was too simple guys, figured it out... just had to copy files: ogz and -art.cfg files from PAS direcory, within the my_stuff folder (C:\Users\my_pc_name\Downloads\PlatinumArtsSandbox2.8\my_stuff\packages\base\rpg) over to C:\Users\my_pc_name\Downloads\PlatinumArtsSandbox2.8\packages\base. You will need to add an image for this project.

Based on my first test of this, looks like some of the triggers are not working properly, other than that, this does the trick to getting own map name to PAS Launcher Window, will try to figure out the triggers thereafter.

Going back in:-)

if the files are only in /packages/base and not within the respective mode (fps, rpg, etc) folders, then Sandbox will likely not open the maps in the proper mode required for the triggers.
