anyone have complaints on their maps that the airstrike doesn't go where the player puts it? is that even possible?

I would think that would only happen if the Minimap was off somehow. I'm not so sure.

I thought the Airstrike was directly linked to the Minimap.

i made a mini map and converted the screen shot ect.
then i made the map bigger and moved the map corners out and the area became like twice the area of the old map the mini map idicated i was in the wrong place.
i liked this in away. cos in the second world war.air troops planes and beach landings where often off course. .
so i figured, hey the mini map is just guide lines look for the land marks fix the mini map when the maps is finished but it all worked besides the mini map reported wrong when not near the 1 mini map datum point.
re doing the mini map image and gtd, and making sure the corners are alighned in a in a square configuration from above
could fix it.
it could posasable to make it in a mod ,giveing a random chance of acuratley missing due to running out of breath b4 desiding where to drop it .


but i think you have probaly accidently moved one of your map corners. while making your map

the mini map is pretty much calculated from the predetermined hieght and screen shot and screen size,
just like how 3 satalites draw fixed point of origin on a gps(global positioning system) because they are in fixed orbit but if you move one and it does not know it will make incorrect calculations and the result will be gradual variations in the longtidute and lattidue(z,y) in our caseit might be that you cant take a screen shot for mini map but once it is transfered in game data you can move the map datum and the game will simply work it out on the datums it has

the first minimap i made didn't show me where i was in the game. like i would be inside a building and the minimap would show me outside. so i reshot the minimap. cropped to just inside the white lines. same thing, so i resized and cropped the image until it was accurate. to my knowledge i didn't move anything. just resized the image. i don't think that would change the placement of the airstrike though, because if it's showing you exactly where you are, then airstrike placement should be relative. ? anyway, it's alot better than when the bombs were landing on the skybox. lol.

maybe i need to redo it again after deleting all the loadscreen and compass data. idk, i just want it to be nice.

i never tired it to make a screenshot work ina area using corners in a space that was not squar if it is not square apparently it will not work ,if that is it will not make a screenshot/or it will not funcion properly i have not tested.
but if it does do all itsupposed to do witha oblong shape not square as instructed the x,y vectors will have seperate values and soif you travel at 45 degress accross the map it will read different /mph in those directions do you catch my drift.
so what do you reacon is the area you have set your mini map corners a square draw a brush over them covering them both to opposite corners then check the x/y of that brush if its length and with are not equal to each other its not square,
and that will explain your query.
if it is square im stumped and will follow with interest what others add here.
cos i still have to fix mine yet see how mine is avery small map the finished map will be like 4 times that size and will have to be redone i will also try to make mine with alpha border too.

I've been thinking about this. When I shot my screenie for the compass, the upper right corner of the white box was not where the compass_map_corner was. It was actually diagonally outside the playable area. Hmm? So theoretically I was trying to force it to make a rectangle. It wanted to make a square. Then I chopped up the image to make it seem like it was accurate but the dvars that fired off during exec_minimap would still be using the map corners which were not actually the borders of the screenshot. I would say there is probably something to the complaint then.

Guess I need to reshoot it. I'll take your advice and lay it out in a perfect square with the grid. ty

lol
i did mine as you can see. but then moved the map corners out further. as i made alot more outside my map (iread a thread on realism outside playable area and decided to conform, )
the mini map aught to be the last job also dont move the mouse when you start doing the devmap screen shot it will possition itself for you.any movement will distort the mini maps' function in game looking exactly down like a blumb bob line. also be sure to remove the northyaw from your worldspawn settings.
it will help with the diagonal position you tried to fix. im guessing thats how that got messed up try quick read of this.

sorry my bad
