How to Make the Campaign Map and to Animate it?

Post by TheChosenOne »

How can I make the campaign map and its animation (the map that you see before the starting of a game) and how can I animate the circles and crosses (which denotes the path travelled and the battles) and other related things? Please help me, I am currently making a campaign but it cannot be finished without a campaign map. Thanks.

Look how HttT does it. The story screen WML for HttT can be found in data/campaigns/Heir_To_The_Throne/utils/bigmap.cfg and the {DOT} and {CROSS} macros in data/utils.cfg.

I found the map and how to write the story below but I still can't find how to make the dots and crosses (and most importantly to draw a campaign map of my own). Can someone tell me how? Thanks

I really told what you need. If not counting checking the WML reference, but then again that one should go without saying.
