I have trried on 8 ocassions to install the program that you offered up to the public to view your maps with no success. Is there special software that is needed on top of the exe. file you provided to use it?. If there is where can I find it?. Please let me know.
Thanks in advance, "THE GODZILLAKING".

When you save the progam direct from here it saves as
When you save the program rename it as
that should solve the problem. If that doesn't work (and it did for me) try http://cyberboard.brainiac.com/ the compannies website.

Having trouble trying to open the map. Comes up as gbx.unk.

Windows is too smart for its own good. Rename the file to be a .gbx file.

Howard ... Will you please work your magic and post it here so those of us having trouble can see the map?

I need to turn in, but I'll try and play around with screen captures when I get off work in the afternoon.

Link to U5 map, gif format, as promised. No Microsoft products were used in process- Wine and GIMP under Linux.

What do the green and red colors represent on the map?
|By Jean Sexton (Jsexton) on Tuesday, November 11, 2008 - 07:12 am: Edit|
Red blobs are UnNav Space, just like the Andro campaign.
Green streaks are Radiation Zones and do "interesting" things to sensors, cloaks, and AF/DF. Its exact effects will be in the Rulebook.

I can't open the map. Isn't it through Cyberboard?
|By Bennett Eugene Snyder (Planner) on Saturday, July 11, 2009 - 09:02 pm: Edit|
I now have Cyberboard v303. Is the map an older version?
|By Ryan Opel (Ryan) on Saturday, July 11, 2009 - 09:12 pm: Edit|
I think they use an older version. Also you probably need change the name of the file from .unk to .gbx .
|By Bennett Eugene Snyder (Planner) on Sunday, July 12, 2009 - 04:29 pm: Edit|
I tried that. Do I need to add .exe?
|By Howard Bampton (Bampton) on Sunday, July 12, 2009 - 08:23 pm: Edit|
They use an older version. I think you can read the older versions, but can not save in the older format. I.e. until/unless John and Mike upgrade, you can not send V3.x .gbx files to them.
The map file is a data file. exe files are executable. Making data files executable (or running ones that are) is rarely a good idea.
The BBS software, for whatever reason, "fixes" the filenames from foo.gbx to foo_gbx.unk. When you download them you need to correct this bug and rename them back to foo.gbx as Ryan noted.

It has probably already been said, but I just take the file that is downloaded and just rename it. So, when it is named "Seltorian_161_2.gbx", it works just fine.
You can name it whatever you want... just make certain it has a "xxx.gbx" file extension on the end.
