viewtopic.php?f=2&t=16812
which one of these do i need to install for android?
You can access in game for Android. Use the command /createmymap and you'll get a confirmation pop-up saying something along the lines of your map being created. Use command /gotomymap to enter or exit your map.

I suppose you could teleport too as a GM if you want to cheat. ;)

You have to be on spawn map to create and access your map.

To just view the files? I usually extracted them on my phone and opened image files with the stock Gallery app, and used HTML Viewer or a text editor app for quest files.
I learned a lot about FT from those quest files that way... Lol

Also, all monsters that have been added to the entities file in editor SHOULD be viewable (as far as stats) while running the program. They render as their base monster (rather than their altered color matrices) while viewing stats in program, in my experiences.

My best advice is to tinker with it when you have time. Experience is the best teacher.

I never figured out how to save so my tinkering tended to be limited. :lol:

I think you could spend quite a bit of time there, especially if you have a serious map idea with quests.
