That's all good. One thing to note is that I scale the x/y coordinates down. In cMud they are separated by 240 pixels, I divide by 60 to make it 4 pixels. You need to figure out the math that works with how you offset your directions.

null roomdesc:27967
cMud map successfully imported.

but when i open map up, there's nothing there. how do i get the map to display?

You need to set yourself to a room number. The null roomdesc means that room number 27967 doesn't have a room desscription. You can set yourself to a room number centerview(roomId). This needs to be called from an alias, etc.

Hey I am trying your map importer for my Shadows of Isildur map created in cmud. I ran the "cmud makedb" alias and I didn't get any confirmation message saying success or fail. I also ran the "cmud importer" alias and picked my map. hit the open button and nothing happens. I don't see the successful or fail message.

Not sure why the alias's aren't firing. Any ideas?

I just noticed that the SqlMap Initiator has a bug. The error says
Lua syntax error:[string "..."]:36: unexpected symbol near '..'

I believe it is this line:
Code: [show] | [select all] lua
local profilename = string.sub(dir,loc+10)
In the InitSql function. When I comment it out the bug goes away.

That line is actually extremely important. What does doing display(dir) and display(loc) give? It may be that you don't have your default save directory as '.../profiles' because I parse for that in loc. There actually is no output when its successful, which I can change after this issue is resolved.

The line in the initSl function that is showing an error is:
Code: [show] | [select all] lua
local loc = string.find(dir, "[\/]profiles[\/]")
I believe this is the problem. If I remove "[\/]" from the line the error goes away. Once I do that I can run the script with a debug line for the dir and loc variable.
The dir variable is: C:\Users\Shawn\.config\mudlet\profiles\Shadows of Isildur
The loc variable is: 31

After I remove the [\/] from that line it gives the DB created successfully line.

I ran the "cmud importmap" alias and selected my map. It delays and shows nothing while the import begins then I got this messaage:
Code: [show] | [select all] lua
cmud importmap

null roomdesc:820
null roomdesc:889
null roomdesc:892
null roomdesc:896
null roomdesc:897
null roomdesc:900
null roomdesc:901cMud map successfully imported.
As for the output I suggest having a line at the beginning saying import started please wait. Then make sure the successful is on a separate line.

Now after I got that information I went and clicked on the map button and it says there is no map.

No map means either no map or no position to display - try centerview(1) to center on the first room.
