What is AC Mappy?

AC Mappy is a Decal plug-in for Asheron's Call that allows users to display a map of the dungeon they are in on screen.

Who wrote AC Mappy?

AC Mappy was written by Blackpanther of Frostfell.

I, Silver'bane of Frostfell, helped with the map conversions and beta testing of the plug-in along with many other things like this web site.

Where did the maps come from?

All maps where originally from AC Maps where I am a Cartographer along with Greeneye of Frostfell (AC Maps Webmaster and founder), Lapin Rose of Frostfell, Alunor of Mornigthaw, Miyah of Leafcull and A Little Voice of Leafcull.

I took the maps with permission and reworked them by removing text and some map details as to keep the files small and clutter free.

I try to install AC Mappy and I get an error saying that it can not install the acmappy.dll file. What do I do?

Do a search on your system for gdiplus.dll if its not there then goto the following website and download gdiplus_dnld.exe.

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/release.asp?releaseid=32738

this will install the file that it needs. This seems to be a problem on Win 95/98 systems and will be fixed on the next release of AC Mappy.

I try to install AC Mappy and I get an error saying that you need a newer version of Windows Installer?

If you are using Windows XP then this is already installed with the OS so you should hopefully not see this message, if so let us know.

If you are using Windows 95/98/ME go HERE and download the InstMsiA.exe file and install it. This should fix the problem.

If you are using Windows 2000/NT go HERE and download the InstMsiA.exe file and install it. This should fix the problem.

How do I Use AC Mappy?

Its fairly straight forward. Install it and away you go. When you enter a dungeon a map will automatically pop up (assuming that "Auto-Show" is checked).

A CHAT BAR COMMAND :

/sm or @sm - Display or remove MAP

How do I get Maps?

The first 66 maps come pre-installed with AC Mappy so there is no need to download them right now. When new maps are available they will be posted here. DO NOT use the maps from AC Maps as they are not formatted correctly and wont display in AC Mappy correctly. All maps that are on AC Maps are or will be formatted when they are released on AC Maps and placed on this site for downloading. You can be notified of new maps as soon as they are released by going here.

Does AC Mappy track you in a dungeon?

As of right now the answer is NO. Possibly in the future. (Once we figure out how to do it).

How can I be notified when new maps or updates are released?

Go Here.

Do you take donations?

YES .. of course :-). Feel free to stop one of us in game and just say THANKS or Nice Program/Maps. That's all we ask. At least for me anyway .. I'm not to sure about the others. MANY MANY Hours went into this program and the maps.
