Slight problem.

So for some reason, my phone decided to make a copy of every area in the game. Like....all of them.
156 pictures have been saved to my phone.
I don't why. Just thought I'd let you know so if it's a game problem you can fix.
156, guys.

I don't think this is an AT problem. There is a folder on your phone, andors-trail/worldmap that contains images of every map. It is used to build the worldmap you look at in the game. In that folder there is a special file, .nomedia (note the leading .). The file is hidden, so you will need to look for it with a file browser that allows you to look for hidden files. That tells apps such as picture viewers to ignore the contents of that folder. Either that file is somehow missing, or your picture viewer is ignoring it. If the former, then the problem can be fixed by replacing the file (although that does leave open the question of how it got deleted in the first place, and how to stop it happening again). If the latter, then the problem lies with your picture viewer, and there's nothing we can do.

In general it is my understanding that file managers can see the files/folders even if you include .nomedia.

Also I am pretty sure all the map files together only take up a few MB.

That's true. I assumed that the screen shot was of a picture viewer, which should ignore them if .nomedia is present.

even just a simple period in front of the file name will hide it: [EG: .file]

Yup. Hidden files, the Unix way.
