C4Minimapper is a program to create PNG minimaps directly from scenarios (.scn, .sco) and saved games (.c4s, .c4o).
The program requires the .NET Framework 2.0. If you have Caesar IV installed on the same computer, this framework is already installed. If you don't have it, you can get the .NET Framework here.
Installation and usage
Simply unzip the file and run C4Minimapper.exe
To open a .scn or .c4s file, simply hit "Open game file" and browse to the file you want to open.
Custom scenarios and saved games from custom scenarios are supported since version 1.2. Saved games from custom scenarios require the original scenario to be available (otherwise the buildings, etc, will be on a white background).
