I found a problem with the US raster images that have mostly been fixed. Everything in my Google Drive has been fixed but there is still one more to do that will be re-uploaded once I am done with it. Also, there were problems with the Merchant's Guild and the Sewers that went beyond the raster images being wrong, but they have been fixed as well. If anyone downloaded these, you will probably want to re-download them. I apologize for the inconvenience.

I have had some requests for a guide on how to make the maps. I've finally had time to write one and it is in the link for the My Heroscribe Files in my signature for anyone that is interested.

I thank you a lot - suddenly the read of the files is quite easy.

No problem. I forgot to mention how to go about getting the raster images and how to check your work. I will update the file then I will post here when it is done.

Alright, I have update the file so it now includes how to check your work and how to get the raster file you need to display in Heroscribe.

Hi
i tried to use the new maps with Heroscribe

- in Gamezones 1 there is a failure. in the lower left corner there are 4 rooms with 4x4 fields.

http://www.heroquestclassic.com/final-b ... -surprise/

I tried to correct it in the .eps file directly, but somehow he doesn't take it.
He does not display the changes in the map, and if i export as eps and display in Powerpoint, it looks empty.... apparently i do something wrong but i can't find what.

--- edit ---
yes, stupid failure on my side. I tried to edit the .eps file with windows stuff. Word was removing the header. file dead.
after editing it in avr studio (a c-compiler for microcontrollers) it was working fine! Thanks!

.eps to .png works well on this site for example.

Definitely don't use Word. Make sure you are using a plain text editor for this.

I cannot get icons to line up properly using current methods of converting. Maybe this site will do something different to fix that. Thanks!

I created a new map for Heroscribe. It's called Skaven Lair and it's based off of tallyho's map found here. I also updated the zip file of Heroscribe in my google drive that has all the maps.
