View Full Version : Not allowed to remove layers?
07-09-2006, 01:43 AM
The toolset seems pretty powerful, but like many of you I am having a hard time figuiring it out. What gets me, is that the editor locks up everytime I decide I don't like a layer (ie texture brush thing) and hit the 'remove' button. Does this happen for anyone else? Am I supposed to set the opactiy to zero and 'erase' it and just leave it on the list?
Sometimes I can ctrl-alt-delete out of the frezze to close the editor but other times I have to restart. I suppose I could make a map file just to test out all the layers to get what I want, but that doesn't seem very efficient. Thanks for any info, good luck to the rest of you, and I'll be back with more problems soon :P

I have had the same exact problem. Hopefully it will be fixed, otherwise I don't see the point for the remove button =P.

This is not a bug... well kind of. What happens is that a dialog window pops up *on the desktop* asking if you want to remove the layer or not. They really should fix the question windows to open on top of everything.
Just hit enter to remove the layer, or esc to not remove it and continue editing.

When the Editor locks up when you want to remove the layer or change the color of water just hit the ALT key and the window will some to the front.
Hope that helps you guys...
As was mentioned this is a bug that got introduced into the Editor near the end of development and was not discovered in time for the release. All of the modal Windows dialog boxes pop-up behind the main window making the Editor appear to be "frozen". Alt+tabbing will bring the window to the front. We've fixed the bug, so hopefully this will be included in the next patch.

A quick hit of the enter key also does the trick
