-create C:\newmapitem.dat C:\picture.bmp
The create option specifies that you want MapItemEdit to create a new map item for you. The first parameter is the path of the new map item. The second parameter is the path to the picture you want to turn into a map item
Tells MapItemEdit to not maintain the aspect ratio when importing the picture for conversion
This option tells MapItemEdit to use the old colours when importing the picture. Both spellings of colour are accepted.
Map item files can also now be dragged and dropped into the program
Lovely! I swear these new features will shave off minutes of file management work, relocating the folders, etc., especially for people who need their map items updated regularly. Thanks a bunch!
Now I'll show you what I have done with this program: a movie screen made up of 9 by 5 (45) map items. Idk if anyone has done anything bigger than this. Also, guess the film.
This is back when the white-transparency bug is still present though, so I have to generally reduce the brightness of the source image.
I guess it would something to do with your distro, since I tested this on Ubuntu and it worked fine. This is probably not the reason, but what was your process for creating the file. Did you click save, then type in a name, and it says "File saved successfully"? Where does it say "invalid encoding"? Is that inside the program, or when you try to open it? Btw, why can't you send it? Does your email program reject it? Thanks!

I literally just right-clicked MapItemEdit and clicked open. There was no save button to click on. No window opened. No program was visible. The only visible effect was a 0 byte file with the aforementioned name appearing in the folder. I should have mentioned that I'm running the 32 bit version of linux mint. Maybe the program is compiled for 64 bit.
