9. Level Mods > 74. Give Your Map Its Own Menu Image

Give Your Map Its Own Menu Image

Give your map a pretty picture in the maps menu.

The bitmap associated with your map can be viewed by opening Ch2r [Hack #51] and double-clicking globals/globals.matg. The test map [Hack #54] currently has no image associated with it. From this view, you can check the number of your map in the globals.matg—they start at 0 and go to up 49. The Test map is currently the last entry so it’s fiftieth on the list—in other words, its value is 49 (see Figure 9-12).

To alter the menu image that is associated with your map, you will need to swap a dependency in the mainmenu.map file.

To do this, you should first open Ch2r [Hack #51] right-click globals/globals.matg and choose Properties (see Figure 9-13).
