Mapeditor:Map not immediately refreshing after editing

Post by kurt278 » Thu Dec 31, 2015 12:50 pm

Small and unimportant bug, affecting only people playtesting their own maps:

When editing and testing a map inside the game, the game doesn't refresh the game the first time you play it (you get to restart on the old, unedited map); You have to restart a new game a second time to get the new version of the map.

Here is what I did:
- Build a map. Activate it, play it. Quit playing.
- Go back to editor, edit that map, add some new terrain feature so you know for sure which version of the map you're seeing.
- Save new version of map in editor, quit editor, activate game as own map
- Go to "Own maps", start game with that map, choose "Restart map". You get the old map (new feature missing). :shock:
- Quit game, immediately restart same map, choose "Restart map". Now you get the new map (new feature present).

As I said, not a show stopper... :mrgreen:

You may try deleting the original map and reactivate the new map you made .this will replace the old map.and maybe if you have not noticed, theres a bigger problem than that- if you save the map without completing it, and then without changing anything in it if you continue the map, you will find that the map opens with some different scenario, not as you left it

Deleting? Where, in the editor or in the play screen (aren't they linked?)?

As for the other issue, I don't think I've met it (yet). Then again I'm just exploring. (I'm definitely an avid level designer and will definitely make dozens and dozens of maps, eventually.)

You must longtap in the ownmaps section to delete activated games....

Thanks. I feared they were linked and that I would delete my whole work in one fell sweep...
