Map making

Post by T-rex2298 »

Hey I got Tiled for making the maps but this is coming up (the program still works) ive reinstalled it several times.
Also I have no idea how to use it :?

If i could get some help that'd be great.

Do I have to draw the maps?

Looks like one of microsofts vc runtimes is missing. When is the message displayed (when opening tiled or when doing some operation insided tiled?) You say "the program still works": With the missing library I would expect tiled or some additional software not to be starting. If it is starting and everything is working then you might ignore the message.

I guess this library should be installed with the tiled installer. Which exact version did you install? Can you send me the download link. They have different versions for XP and newer windows versions at

What windows OS are you using?

In your original post you wrote "the program still works". Did I understand that correctly and you could just ignore the message?

I checked the tiled setup files. It looks like the vc runtimes are missing. You could try to install them from https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/downloa ... x?id=52685

You could start with this tutorial. You are just one download away to edit the existing andors trail maps in tiled and create new ones:

For a more expansive guide, see here: https://andorstrail.com/viewtopic.php?f ... 637#p46637
Despite what the guides say, use Tiled only for the graphics layers of the map, and the walkable layer. All map events, spawn areas, etc, should be added using ATCS.
