I have a system that meets the specs, OSX 10.7, Intel based. The program runs correctly but all attempts to save fail. Program simply shuts down, whether its Dave, save as, save all OT save to png.

Yes, I am running as an administrator and it does not matter whether I save to the default directory or a different (eg. Desktop) nor does it seem to matter if I name it simple or complex.

Any ideas?

Happens to me too. I think it is broken. The only solution I have is to take a screenshot after I construct my map and then crop the map out in Preview. It works well enough but is pretty annoying.

Hello!

We took contact with the software programmer.
He may ask you for additional information. Expect a solution soon.
Thanks for your feedback.

John D, could you follow the steps below and let me know what the Terminal output is:

1) with bgmapeditor closed, control click the bgmapeditor.app and select 'Show Package Contents'
2) navigate to Contents>Resources>sources, leave that Finder window to the side for now
3) open /Applications/Utilities/Terminal.app and place that window next to the Finder window opened in step 2
4) drag the bgmapeditor.x11 from the Finder into the Terminal window
5) in the Terminal window, press enter - this should launch bgmapeditor

... also, regarding 10.8.2, are you specifically talking about saving as well or a more general failure? either way, could you please follow the steps above in that environment too and post the Terminal output for us, thank you!

Hi, I'm having the same problem here on my mac. If I launch the map editor from the command line as you suggest, it all works just fine. BUT when running from the applications folder it crashes under any of the following:

* Save
* Open
* Convert to png

All of which work on the command line. I did notice that at all of these steps there is output to the terminal ("saving ... Done! ").

Is it posible when you run from the applications folder that the std output is getting piped somewhere illegal? Afraid I'm more a linux guy than a mac-dev so I don't know where to look to debug further.



Workaround for users: Run from the command line (as instructed above). For me the command is:

/Applications/bgmapeditor.app/Contents/Resources/sources/bgmapeditor.x11

Works as expected then.

interesting... it seems that the problem was due to the timer implemtation (the one you may see running at launch). Since this is really just a convenience for those running the program for the first time (particularly if X11/XQuartz has just been installed), I have suppressed it for now.

Please download the new version from http://www.confsden.com/bgmapeditor but please be aware that you will need to download the Zombicide pack separately and import it into the application.

... as soon as it is confirmed that this new version solves adequately the problem that was reported herein, we will update the version coming with the pack pre-installed.

Thank you for your reports!

My apologies, that was unclear ... the program works but all attempts to save failed, identical to the iMac with 10.7

I am now away with my laptop (with 10.8.2) so unable to test 10.7 again, but via the terminal as you described, the program worked as expected and this time saving also successfully completed without the program shutting down.

Terminal output ...

Last login: Tue Oct 2 06:22:42 on console
cpe-121-216-138-93:~ John$ /Applications/bgmapeditor.app/Contents/Resources/sources/bgmapeditor.x11

Saving /Users/John/Documents/Test.map... Done! [Tue Oct 2 06:35:46 2012]cpe-121-216-138-93:~ John$

Running the map editor again from Launchpad produced the same behaviour as reported previously ... worked as expected until attempts to save, then the program shut down with all of Save, Save All, Save As, Save to png.

are we talking about the initial version available from Guillotine or the hotfix I referenced in my previous post? If unsure please Get Info on the bgmapeditor.app and you should see the version (build date).

actually the version is not displayed in the Finder, you'll have to click on the bgmapeditor icon in the dock when it is running and select 'About bgmapeditor' in the top menu bar.

My report is on the initial version.

edit : I have just downloaded and trialled the hot-fixed version.

All works well including save.

Thank you.

Also doesn't work under Windows 8!

:-(

Slightly different symptoms though: Program doesn't exit or crash, it just save nothing but empty files (.png output is empty too).

EDIT: Solution - extract to Program Files, not Program Files (x86)!
