    Posted: August 27 2003 at 5:50am

I have charged some grey BMP files in TerraBuilder, but the program doesn't seem to be able to read their world files (BPW or BMPW), and I have to put scale and coordinates parameters by keyboard ...

Does somebody know any way to avoid this ?

Andrea,

Try to rename the file to *.bmw; this is the extension TB expects for a *.bmp world file.

Please let us know if this resolved the problem.

Eylon,
what you suggested is improving a lot my working process ... and saving my fingers.
I am going to rename hundreds of world files and I think that for the next version of TB I could have renemed all the grey *.bmp files of my life !
Do you think you might do more as finding a trick and making my TB able to take also *.bpw extension (as this is my standard extension for *.bmp world files) ?
It would be heroic !
Thanks,

Andrea,

I am glad this helped.
As for the renaming you can use the DOS command:
ren *.BMPW *.BMW- This will rename all BMPW to BMW files
OR, even better:
copy *.BMPW *.BMW - This will make a copy of the BMPW to BMW so that your other software can still work with the original files.

We will look into adding other extensions in the next version of TB.

btw, gr8 work on the Anglona site, I already asked for a vacation

Eylon,

I will save all my new *.bmp+*.bpw files in only one new folder and I will use the "copy *.bpw *.bmw" DOS command.

Thanks also for enjoying tha Anglona site: I am sure you would not repent to choose Anglona for you vacation Cool ...
