In case any of you feel like trying this out/testing it.
Here are direct download links for both the windows executables and the
precompiled python source (will hopefully work on both linux and mac machines)
latest versions of both the mapData interpreter/engine, and the newer app that
lets you generate content by answering questions, typing content, etc. via a
command line app, etc.:
Windows executable (run mapData.exe):
Python compiled source (mapData.pyc):
windows executable for content generator (run mapDataGenerator.exe):
Python compiled source for content generator (mapDataGenerator.pyc):
You'll also see that if you tell the generator to save a map, then aside from
reloading it next time you want to carry on editing/adding on to it, it will
also ask if you want to generate an 'encrypted' version, which can then be
shared with other guys without them off-hand being able to view the content
thereof, so that they can run the content by specifying an additional command
line syntax of map=fileNameEnc (which leaves out the .txt part of the file
name) alright, but still won't off-hand be able to see what's then in the
contents of that file beforehand, but anyway.
Also means in mapDataGenerator, if you tell it to load a file, and then tell it
to load mapData, you'll be able to edit the map etc. therein.
This is also still just me testing/playing around with/trying out working in
python, so if you want to test it, don't expect it to be amazing in any sense,
and both apps come with my test content file, mapData.txt, so you can see the
form of content it will save/generate, in an unencrypted form if you want, and
this is also the default file that mapData executable will try to find/execute
if just running it, but anyway.
Can also not promise there won't be any bugs/issues, or that all prompts are
complete enough since I myself know what it wants as answers, so may have
missed out on making it tell you everything as such, but anyway.
