A very short tutorial how to run Knights of Honor map editor.

Posted by on - Basic Mapping/Technical

How to run KoH's map editor? It's quite simple:

1) create maps\Temps folder in your game directory
2) make a shortcut of KoH.exe
a. right click the shortcut and select properties
b. in the Target field, add -debug at the end, so it looks something like:
"C:\Program Files\Black Sea Studios\Knights Of Honor\KoH.exe" -debug
3) run the shortcut
4) go to the main menu of Knights of Honor, then press SHIFT and click Credits, and you'll be taken to the map editor instead of credits screen

Please note that the map editor bundled with Knights of Honor is very buggy, is missing some features/icons and functionality. So you've been forewarned.

how to save? where to move that? on pf or app data?

First, if you want save/load maps, you must create this folder "maps\Temps".
Then you must extract (all is better) packs/*.pak/*.pk1 (with PakMan).
If you want save/load original maps, you must copy all from the maps\ folder in "maps\Temps"!!!
