Since this update (possibly even slightly earlier?), images placed in an image layer won’t load, with the error: “Failed to read metatile map (Image + directory path): Not a map file.” Not completely sure why this is occurring, but some help would be really appreciated
This usually happens when Tiled can’t open your image file(s), such as because they’re missing, or are invalid. The metatile map error also shows up for some reason, I guess because when it fails to load an image, it tries to load the same path as a map.
Since 1.10, there is also an image allocation limit (see issue #3616). Perhaps the images you’re trying to load are large enough to hit that limit? This limit will be raised significantly in 1.10.1.
Thank you for the response! Looks like I might have to wait for 1.10.1 then, it is a really large image that displays the chunk map (16384x8192), so that explains a lot
Until the next Tiled release, if you can live without the 1.10 features, you could downgrade to 1.9.2, which did not have this limit.
Just mentioning two other options:
You can keep using 1.10.0, if you set an environment variable
QT_IMAGEIO_MAXALLOCto 0. That disables the limit entirely.
Since the bug is already fixed on
master, you can take a recent build from Actions · mapeditor/tiled · GitHub.
