Installation Help - All Products

 

Description

Please read this topic carefully before installing your
software.

Note

ProFantasy's product
range is in transition. Campaign Cartographer 3, City
Designer 3, Dungeon Designer 3, Symbol Set 1, Symbol Set
2 and Cosmographer 3 are out, as are compatibility
updates to a variety of add-ons. But not all of our add-
ons are compatible with CC3 yet - some only work with CC2
Pro.



Solution

What you need to install depends on the version of
Campaign Cartographer you have...

If you purchased any of the Source Maps products or
the Tome of Ultimate Mapping you can install them as
stand-alone products. This will allow you to view all of
the maps. If you want to edit the maps you will need to
install CC2 Pro.

    page or use the CD. Contact href="http://www.profantasy.com/service/entrance.asp">Tec

    (not into the CC3 folder!).

    Ultimate Mapping and any Source Maps products except
    Temples!.

The Tome of Ultimate Mapping and the World War II
Atlas must be installed under CC2 Pro if you want to edit
them, as we have not released compatibility upgrades yet.
If you only want to view the maps choose the stand-alone
option when you install.

any of the Source Maps products can be installed without
a copy of Campaign Cartographer.



  1. Install these in any order to their own separate
    folders.

  2. If you own on older version of Fractal Terrains, you
    might need an update.

    number is less than 1.6 and you have href="http://www.profantasy.com/service/entrance.asp">reg

    need to delete the FT Pro serial number. Record this

    upgrade. Download and install this file.

Campaign Mapper or the Forgotten Realms Interactive
Atlas



  1. Disable antivirus software during installation of
    the products and patches.

  2. Install CM from the CR2 CD into a its own separate
    folder. Do not install it into either the CC3 or CC2 Pro
    folders. You can use Windows Start >> Run and then browse
    the CD for the CM folder to find the setup.exe if you do
    not want to install Core Rules 2.

  3. Download the href="http://www.profantasy.com/library/files/tech/cm6036
    up.zip">CM patch
    . Start CM, save whatever file comes
    up then exit. It is imperative that you install the patch
    because it contains the updated catalogs.

  4. If you have CC2 Pro, and want to use the symbols
    from CM and the FRIA with it, install CC2 Pro at this
    point. Start CC2 Pro, save the map that comes up and exit
    again.

  5. Install the Forgotten Realms Interactive Atlas
    (FRIA) into its own separate folder - do not install it
    into the CC3, CC2 Pro or CM folders. Start the Atlas,
    save whatever file comes up then exit.

  6. Apply all three of the href="http://www.wizards.com/dnd/article.asp?
    x=dnd/ex20020218a">FRIA Patches
    in their numeric
    order. After each patch you need to use Windows Explorer
    to clear the Read Only flag from the FRIA maps. Use
    Windows Explorer to navigate to the FR Atlas folder.
    Right click on the Maps folder then choose Properties.
    Clear the Read Only box and click Apply.

  7. Reboot your computer, remember to disable antivirus
    again.

  8. If applicable, finish the CC2 Pro
    installation
    with the add-ons and Universal Update.

  9. Enable your antivirus.

  10. You can move the Campaign Mapper symbol catalogs
    (city.fsc, dungeon.fsc, map.fsc) into your CC2
    Pro\Symbols folder, then uninstall Campaign Mapper if you
    do not plan on using it.

  11. FRIA installs its symbol catalogs into CC2 Pro
    provided you have followed the above CC2 Pro
    instructions.
