Marin's Map Exporter

Marin's Map Exporter

Pokémon Essentials Version
v18 ➖
Since I heard Klein's Map Exporter was broken here and there (and have never successfully used it myself), I decided to write my own version.
You can export any and every map, and you can choose if you want the events on that map to be included in the PNG or not. You also have this option for the player, but it won't show up no matter what if the player isn't on that map.

I may include an option to export with map connections as well later on, but I'm not entirely sure how to go about doing that yet.

First off, install my Scripting Utilities.

Then put the actual script itself above the Main script:


If you want to export one of your maps, go into the debug menu and locate Field options -> Export a Map (it's at the bottom). When you choose that option, you will get a list of all your maps (just like in Warp to Map). Pick one, and it will ask you to choose from one/two options (whether or not you want events to be included, and if the player is currently on that chosen map, whether or not you want the player to be included as well).
If you choose Export, the map will be exported to whatever filename you wrote down in ExportedMapFilename. By default, this is Exported Map.png.

You can manually export a map as follows:
pbExportMap(id = nil, options = [])
  • id : The id of the map you want to export. By default, this is the current map the player is on.
  • options : An array of options. This can include :player and/or :events. By default, this is empty (no events, nor the player).

The method that shows a list of maps and makes you pick one to export is pbExportAMap. That's all.

Fantastic script. Great for easily showcasing your maps with no setup required.
