Can I move the map in CS Complet?

Hi all; I'm now playing CS Complete. Is there a way to move the map from the top left corner to the bottom left corner of the window? I hate the map up in the sky as I can't see it very well in certain light conditions, even when I turn off the lights in my computer room. Thank You in advance.

moving the minimap

edit the gamedata\configs\ui\zone_map.xml (or zone_map_16.xml for widescreen)

change
<minimap>
<level_frame x="20" y="14"
to
<level_frame x="20" y="573"

and

<background x="4" y="3"
to
<background x="4" y="560"

i don't think the zone_map.xml files are included with Complete, so you may have to get them from the Vanilla files.

Hey Mr. maddog; thank you for the info, however, I could not find it any where. I used notepad ++ and just could not find it at all. What am I doing wrong??

Mr. blackwolfLT; I don't know what you are telling me? sorry.

here is the 'modified' file. DL it and put it in the right folder (see above).
zone_map.xml
http://www.mediafire.com/?qtw1ar1q6b8mxsh

get Don Reba's EXTRACTOR here:
http://smartmodmanager.codeplex.com/releases/view/10596#DownloadId=27234

you can use it to unpack the db's in all three games. all of the game files are contained in the db's. when you unpack them you get a 'gamedata' folder with all the original Vanilla files. these are the files that modders change to make their mods, like CS Complete. save this folder on your hard drive (so you always have the original files) and then make copies of the files that you want to change.

when you have made the changes you put the modified gamedata folder in your STALKER directory. when the game starts, it looks for the 'gamedata' directory and if it finds one then it uses those files instead of the vanilla files in the db's.

Hey Mr. angrydog; I have looked the best I can? I think. lol I still can't find the ui\zone_max.xml file any where. I went and un-zipped the files and I tried to install the unpacker in the game files but it would not let me. So I went and installed it in the C:\Users\dr22\Documents\Stalker Clear Sky stuff. At any rate I still need help. Thanks in advance.

try using this one, it might be easier :
http://www.gamefront.com/files/11733423/stalker_soc_and_cs_unpacker.zip

-unzip it
-copy the "unpacker" folder into the Clear Sky Directory
-go into the "unpacker" folder
-run "CS_full_unpack.bat"
-windows cmd line window will open and unpacker will run
-press any key when unpacker is done
-look for "unpacked" folder, this folder contains all the files folders contained in the "'gamedata" folder. you have now unpacked you db's.
now you can copy the files you want to mod and put them in the gamedata folder in your CS directory.


the only file you need to move the minimap is the zone_map.xml (or zone_map_16.xml for widescreen)

just copy the one you downloaded from me and put it in the gamedata\configs\ui folder and start the game with your last save. if you don't like the position of the minimap then just open the file with notepad and change the coordinates until you get it where you want.

Mr. angrydog; Right on, That worked great and put the minimap in just the right spot for me. Now, I need to move the inventory map clock to the right just a little. How can I do that?
