    This is the Original Dragon Mod 10.

    For anyone familiar with Dragon tools, the mod 10 offers an updated color pallet and an extended set of transitions to go with them. (If I remember correctly) I will eventually compare these to make myself more familiar with what the changed between these really were.

    Again, this is the Original version, unmodified from any other source. This has not changed hands unknown times before being posted here :)

    This is the Original Dragon Mod 11.

    Again, For anyone familiar with Dragon tools, the mod 11 offers yet another updated color pallet and an extended set of transitions to go with them. (If I remember correctly) I will eventually compare these to make myself more familiar with what the changed between these really were.
    This Mod was created for the most part by HellRazor, and with any luck he will eventually come around and offer some information about some of the more important changes he had made.

    And again, like the others, this is an Unmodified Original version that has not been changed in any way by unknown sources.

    This is the Updated Dragon 1.0362 with my Imod13 add-on included.

    My Imod13 add-on offers 9 new terrain types not previously offered in any of the other Dragon Mods. If you wish to see full details on what this offers you can visit my site and check the Imod13 Addon link. I figured I would offer it here for free to anyone looking to create their own map and have the most options when it comes to terrain types. Enjoy

    No it wasn't developed that far back. I completed it in 2007 if I remember correctly. I just started using Dragon in 2005 and upgraded it with my Imod9+ in 2006... ah I digress.

    LOL. well while that is definitely a problem, its not caused by Dragon. You still have the DIF files in your Ultima Online directory. The DIF files are only needed when your using the original Britannia world that comes with the game. When you use a custom map you need to either delete the DIF files for the Map0 and Map1 worlds, or move them into a backup folder so the game doesn't see them and load them into the client.

    Here is a list of the DIF files you will need to delete or move to a backup folder.

    If you are using a custom Map0 replacement world then you will delete or remove these files from your Ultima Online folder

    Stadifl0.mul
    Stadifi0.mul
    Stadif0.mul
    Mapdifl0.mul
    Mapdif0.mul

    If you are using a custom Map1 replacement world then you will delete or remove these files from your Ultima Online folder

    Stadifl1.mul
    Stadifi1.mul
    Stadif1.mul
    Mapdifl1.mul
    Mapdif1.mul

    Once those files are deleted or removed from your Ultima Online folder, your problem will be solved. EA Games when they bought out OSI started adding in patches to the maps via DIF files that only update certain locations on the original game map, so what you are seeing is those certain areas of your custom map are be updated with the patch information from the DIF files.

    Also, in misc/MapDefinitions.cs you should set TileMatrixPatch.Enabled = false;

    This disables the MapDif reading of the Server.

    mmm any can help me? i try to convert map0.mul i finish to bmp again, but all mul2bmp in dragon cause me an error :S

    You really dont want to use the Mul2Bmp program to generate a map image for any usable image for map making.. It was never really refined to create a bmp image good enough to turn around and use again with Dragon, without a LOT of reworking the colors. It will (or did) create a fair image of the map0.mul file, but there will be a huge portion of the map that will have void colors because of the 3 way transitions on the map#.mul file.. and not having any specific color to assign those.

    Also, depending on the version of Mul2Bmp and the map#.mul file used, that could be the issue in itself. I am uncertain is it will even read a map of the current size of 7168x4096 where it was created when maps were 6144x4096.

    What errors are you having specifically?

    My error is: "Access violation at address 004502D6B in module 'Dragon_m2b.exe'. Read of address 0B2A4000.

    i'm using Dragon_Imod13 ... :S

    You will not be able to use the Dragon_m2b.exe (MAP2BMP) program with a my IMod13 version of Dragon. That's because the color table has been updated as have the scripts and the Dragon_m2b.exe is expecting the original Dragon color table and scripts. You can do this with the original unmodified version of Dragon but not the addon modified versions.

    I actually found your site before this one Carl, and wanted to tell you that the release of your modded version of Dragon is probably in my top 10 internet respect earners. It is refreshing to see in this day and age! I'm a new member, as of today, here but I think this one upload on your part is going to be enough to keep me around for a long time.

    +1 Respect Carl!
