I've been playing around with the mapper recently and noticed some strangeness related to loading map files in wintin++. I can work around it but thought it might be worth highlighting.

I normally run tt++ under linux but want to send some maps I've created to friends running wintin++. I installed the latest version of wintin but had a problem that after loading a map "#map map" would show me random room connection symbols (/ - \) in the first 3-4 columns with the rest of the line being blank. Removing splits and changing vtmap flag made no difference.

Playing about I noticed if #split was off that paging up and then back down would show the correct map. Session configuration between windows and linux were both the same, so doesn't seem to be related to that. Then remembered that I'd converted the map from unix to dos text format (also did this with some command files). Copying the maps back over to the windows machine keeping them in unix text format fixes the issue but makes editing the map files outside wintin a pain.

Command files don't seem to care how each line is terminated is there a specific reason why map files do?

I've added it to my list of things to fix.

Editing the file in wordpad should have it show up readable btw.
