Cheers for the guides, I'm trying to place trees on my map, I've selected the object I want and selected place objects from the right hand side drop down menu, however when I double click on the map to place the object, nothing happens, any ideas?

This is a problem I encountered myself :P

Make sure to check your map X Y
Make sure to check the object X Y

Map X Y = The size of the map
Object X Y = The area which the objects can be placed

Any Chance some of the uploads can be uploaded? Some of the files are corrupted. Thanks :)

Also when opening any map it just looks blank? No tiles and I can only scroll accross by 5 blank tiles?

have you loaded both the tile set and the tile map options for the map you are editing and selected place tiles from the drop down menu? Enclosed is the version of the map editor I've been using in case the other is corrupted but I'd recommend downloading it again first as the new one could be more up to date
