only people with a rank above conquerer would be able to play it.

brilliant idea. so here's the map. if you don't see it you're not ranked high enough. and it's a shame that you don't because it's a real beauty. a masterpiece.

it's blurry because you don't have a high enough rank. but the fact that you manage to at least see something means you're getting closer :lol:

There's something funny going on at the edges of the image... I'd suggest cropping it down by about 3px on all edges - that should be just enough to sort it. The instructions/legend could probably be slightly clearer, but after one or two games most people would have worked out what's going on - and I can't think of an obvious way to do it differently.

I had some free time, so I whipped up a quick xml: http://www.fileden.com/files/2010/12/18 ... 0//xml.xml

I'm a little concerned about the 888s in a few spots... I think zimmah's got the right idea - you may have to go supersize with this one.

If anyone has any old red and blue 3D glasses lying around here is the image from drug war in anaglyph 3D

Im definitely going to try this on castle battle when i start it again, as it would make a good 3D image, sadly drug war being top down does not lend itself as well. Also this method of 3D does not really work on very colourful images.

Yes, I had a pair in the drawer of my computer desk (for toyota3d.ca), and the effect is pretty good, but you are right, very colourful images are a bit painful. It would be nice if the site support more variants of the graphics than just large and small maps. Being able to select the 3D version vs. the 2D would be neat. Being able to select between congruent variations of maps (like the old Classic Shapes and Classic Art) while having them all count in one statistic would be awesome.
