Maybe you remember the tool shown here.

So you can draw new paths although missions are at other places?

Is it possible to add click-to-place to position/move points, or have the coordinates being text boxes in the toolbar rather than modal dialogues?

You can move the currently selected Point by clicking on the map. I implemented this before writing the input dialog btw Wink.

The input dialog is only to allow more exact positioning. At least my mouse is crap and the cursor "jumps" when I try to move the mouse slowly so such a dialog is at least good for me *g*.

@hari8
Changing the paths in the DOT-File allows you to define where the red dots during the world map movements will move to.
So you can change at which positions different battles happen. And you can change the World maps btw too (by overwriting the bitmaps). So this allows a new overworld in custom campaigns. BUt the mission order can't be changed this way(?)

Updated the program.
Just redownload it.

Changes for 1.1:
- Added an option to draw curved paths in order to simulate the Dark Omen Path-Behaviour. Not perfect, but better then nothing
- Simple and Curved-Path-Drawing can be enabled/disabled in the new View Menu
- Autodetecting DOT- and Map-Graphic-Path works now under XP
- If there are more then 10 paths all predefined colors are used again (prevents that all paths higher then 9 are white)
- Window resizing enabled. Could cause graphic glitches under Vista and Win7
- Fixed NullPointerException that sometimes occured when clicking the TreeView
- Window is not displayed at the top-left-corner of the monitor anymore...

Meh, I try ignoring you, but you make too cool stuff  Smiley! If I someday find the time to actually make a DOE campaign, this would be very good for making it a completely new experience where you travel to new locations to fight and so on. Good job!
