Using the Debug Hotkey
No Better Bug than a Debug:
Yes, there is a hotkey that will give you tons of info on your map (too much info, in fact). Here's how to use it:
Once this is done, 2 things happen:
First a file named squids.txt is created in your Netstorm directory. This file contains the location of every single item in the map, and is very detailed.
Second, the same info in the squids.txt is also displayed on the screen. Just press [ENTER] and make the chat window large to see the info.
What's this good for? Well, you do get the exact location of every single item in the Scenario. Say you want to use the <$ViewSpot,(XxY)> command to move the display window to a certain location. With this debug hotkey, you could find that info.
Problem with this debug tool, is that it's TOO DETAILED. Too much info is given, so it takes a long time to sort through it all.
There ya have it. More than you ever wanted to know about your map!
