Install Guide

Windows

To install Tilemap Studio:

  1. Download install.bat and tilemapstudio.exe from the latest release.
  2. Hold down Shift, right-click install.bat, and click "Run as administrator". This will install Tilemap Studio to your account and create a shortcut on your Desktop.
  3. Now you can delete the two downloaded files.
  4. Double-click Tilemap Studio on your Desktop to open it. If you get an error that "mscvrt120.dll is missing", you need to install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2013 Redistributable. You may need the x64 version as well as the x86 version, at least for Windows 10.

If you have Microsoft Visual Studio, you can build Tilemap Studio yourself:

  1. On GitHub, click the green "Clone or download" button and click "Download ZIP". This will download tilemap-studio-master.zip.
  2. Unzip tilemap-studio-master.zip. This will create the tilemap-studio-master folder.
  3. Navigate to the tilemap-studio-master folder in Explorer.
  4. Unzip lib/fltk-1.3.5-mod.zip. This will create the lib/fltk-1.3.5-mod folder.
  5. Open lib/fltk-1.3.5-mod/ide/VisualC2010/fltk.sln in Visual Studio 2013. (Other versions may or may not work, I haven't tried.)
  6. A dialog "Upgrade VS++ Compiler and Libraries" will open, since fltk.sln was made for Visual Studio 2008. Click OK.
  7. Go to Build → Batch Build…, check the projects fltk, fltkimages, fltkpng, fltkjpeg, and fltkzlib in the Release configuration, and click the Build button.
  8. Move the .lib files from lib/fltk-1.3.5-mod/lib to lib.
  9. Open ide/tilemap-studio.sln in Visual Studio 2013.
  10. If the Solution Configuration dropdown on the toolbar says Debug, set it to Release.
  11. Go to Build → Build Solution or press F7 to build the project. This will create bin/Release/tilemapstudio.exe.
  12. Hold down Shift, right-click install.bat, and click "Run as administrator". This will install Tilemap Studio to your account and create a shortcut on your Desktop.

Linux

Run the following commands:

# Install dependencies
# (you need at least g++ 4.9 for <regex> support)
sudo apt-get install make g++ git unzip
sudo apt-get install zlib1g-dev libpng-dev libxpm-dev libx11-dev libxft-dev libxinerama-dev libfontconfig1-dev x11proto-xext-dev libxrender-dev libxfixes-dev

# Clone Tilemap Studio
git clone https://github.com/Rangi42/tilemap-studio.git
cd tilemap-studio

# Build modified FLTK 1.3.5 with the latest ABI enabled
# (even if you already have libfltk1.3-dev installed)
pushd lib
unzip fltk-1.3.5-mod.zip
cd fltk-1.3.5-mod
chmod +x configure
./configure --prefix="$PWD/.." --with-abiversion=10305
make
make install
popd

# Build Tilemap Studio
# ("export PATH" is needed if fltk-config is not already in your PATH)
export PATH="$PWD/lib/bin:$PATH"
make

# Install Tilemap Studio
# (tested on Ubuntu and Ubuntu derivatives only; it just copies bin/tilemapstudio
#  and res/app.xpm to system directories)
sudo make install
You can’t perform that action at this time.
