Mapster sprite editing bug

User is offline   Jamesfff 

#1

I've discovered a bug in Mapster32 that's been present at least since June. if you hover the mouse pointer over certain sprites (locks, monsters, weapons & pickups), they are not selected for editing; other sprites (newspapapers, random objects, etc.) are selectable however. Screenshots are attached below. In one, the pointer is on a weapon sprite, and in the other it's on a random sprite. Only the random sprite is selected for editing (check the lower left corner of the screenshots).

It could be an offset on the model definition that is throwing it off, and in that case it's not mapster's fault. Show an example where it's happening on a sprite, not a model

I just tested on the newest Mapster. In Polymost I can't select ANY model. In Polymer everything works fine. Inaccurate mouse aiming in Mapster/polymost was an issue that I thought was long gone. Maybe its come back to haunt us. I haven't mapped under polymost for years so I have no clue how long its been happening. I noticed another new to me feature. When tagging an SE in 3d mode the screen darkens a bit until you hit enter with the new value. Intenional??

OK, I have just tested this in software rendering mode, with 2D sprites, not models, and had no problems selecting any of them. Seems the problem is with 3D models. BTW, Mapster32 has only 2 rendering options for 3D mode, OpenGL and software - no mention of Polymost or Polymer.

3d Models haven't been selectable in Polymost since version 7657. I reported this bug in August last year but seeing as very few people use 3d models in mapster I don't imagine it's a top priority.

Yeah. The changelog file shows a change made in 7740, removed in 7741, and put back in 7742. Just over a year ago and almost nobody noticed or complained. :(
