    CellGrid2 questions

    Hi guys,

    I downloaded cellgrid2. I am still not clear just how to get a grid bgl up and running in CFS2.

    I dragged and dropped the CFS2_192_128_Grid.txt onto BGLC.exe. No problems. It spit out CFS2_192_128_Grid.bgl.

    I put CFS2_192_128_Grid.bgl into the CellGrid2/scenery folder, dropped the entire CellGrid2 folder into my main CFS2 folder. Activated it. Moved it up and down in the layers. No joy. I tried placing it in the Scenedb folder and activating from there. Still no joy.

    I know I am missing something big and basic. Any hints?

    Thanks
    Chris

    Hi Chris.

    Cellgrid has some texture files that must be in a twin texture folder. I'm guessing that might be the problem.

    Hi Dick,

    I have the following two bmp files in the the CellGrid "texture" sub-folder.

    LOD8define.bmp
    test.bmp
    Are they the ones?

    Got it!!

    MY mistake. Everything was working all the time. I was just at the wrong location.

    Put the coords for Iwo Jima into Tdfcalc2 it spit out cell 685, 185.

    Popped those numbers into the CFS2_192_128_Grid.txt file.

    Ran that thru BGLC.exe and got what I was looking for!

    Q: Lesson learned?
    A: READ the README!

    Thanks Dick.
