4-0 out of 5 stars Great Product With Some Need For Improvements
This product isn't perfect, but it's quite good considering this is the first time I've seen it and could not find any mapping software for OS X a year ago.

The interface is a little strange, but once you get used to it, it seems fine.

The detail of the maps seems very good, although some out-of-the-way small towns (with a few hundred people) may have little to no detail. It did, however, find two addresses that Yahoo Maps and MS Streets had no record of, which I thought was impressive.

One thing that most mapping software is horrible at is printing options -- the options for Route 66 I thought were very good.

The redraw speed while *scrolling* (not zooming in/out) was a little slow and could probably be easily fixed with an update that cached surrounding map details better. No matter how much detail I had turned on or what my zoom level was, it never took more than 1.5 seconds to redraw while scrolling. This may depend on how fast your computer is and how much memory you have -- I have 1.1gb of RAM and Route 66 was using 212mb according to "top" (command line resource reporter).

The GPS compatibility is nice, but haven't tried it yet -- I need to find a USB cable for my eMap GPS.

This software is very much worth supporting since I know of no other mapping software for the Mac currently and this software costs $35-$40. In my opinion, it's worth every penny of the $40 I paid for it.

1-0 out of 5 stars 3 thumbs down
i was a user of MS streets and trips, and belive that it was the one thing MS did correctly and i am shocked to say that not only is the mac competition (RT66) lacking, but simply not worth using. RT66 makers should be ashamed and do not deserve to be among mac and its usual integrity.

2-0 out of 5 stars Pretty awful...
I recently switched to Mac from PC and so I'm coming from a background of MS Streets and Trips, and Autroute.

In comparison to the MS offerings, the Rt66 product are, well, kind of a joke. I purchased both the US and European versions (they're the only game in town for Mac.)

The maps are drawn (slowly) in such a way that they are quite unclear. They are also kind of incomplete. It couldn't find my old house (11 years old) only the street. It doesn't even know the 4 year old subdivision I live in exists.

Smaller towns are really hard to find. I searched for Carrie, Idaho (near Sun Valley) and the search engine came up empty. So I scrolled over to where I know it is and finally found the name of the town spread out over a general area and superimposed with another word in the same font.

From an overview position on the map, there was no indication at all where exactly the town was. I knew, though, so I zoomed in on the area. It took until I was at a 2000 foot distance before the streets began showing up. Street names didn't appear until 500 feet. If that doesn't mean anything to you, think about reading a map with your nose an inch from it.

So, in a nutshell, if you know exactly where a town is and are familiar with all the streets, you may be able to find it on their map. How useful...

How did MS Streets do? It found Carrie immediately, displayed it clearly, and showed all the streets from an impressive distance.

Overall, a pretty dismal product. I'm looking into a Windows emulator to allow me to run Streets and Autoroute, but I'm guessing that it'll be too much trouble and I'll just suffer with these. If anyone out there is a programmer--here's a nice opportunity for you...

2-0 out of 5 stars Mediocre
I bought this software because, well, it was the only one available for OS X. This is beta stage software at best - it doesn't tend to crash, but the UI is really poor. It is as if 12 different people wrote different pieces of the program and then tried to cobble them together. Nothing is very intuitive, and things that should be simple are cumbersome. The routes are sometimes often adequate, but not infrequently poor choices or just wrong. For instance, I tried to plot a route from Durham to Salisbury, MD. I had a nearly impossible time 'forcing' it to choose the most logical/shortest/fastest route. It continually tried to send me 100 mi. out of my way. Even when I roadblocked all of the roads it wanted to send me on, it sent me 250 mi out of my way rather than the most direct route.
I hope this software improves. If the company is motivated, it could be the basis for a really good program. However, any company that would put something this haphazard on the market with almost a complete lack of documentation AND no competition is unlikely to put much effort into this. After all, why should they?

In summary, if you need a map program for your mac that has a lot of points of interest, a good database of roads (although poor search engine), GPS input capabilities, doesn't require a CD in the drive, and 35 bucks doesn't seem like too much for slow, unintuitive, occasionally counterintuitive information and interface, go for it.

3-0 out of 5 stars Printing problems!
I must concur with the previous review. The mapping software is really quite good and shows much promise; but there is a major bug in the software. It will *not* print directions - only an overview map of your trip! Very odd. I thought this might be a problem unique to my G4 Powerbook, but I encountered the exact same problem on a desktop and another more up to date Powerbook.

Again, to echo the other reviewer: Route 66 software is on the right track, but this piece of software is *certainly* not past a beta testing stage and shouldn't be offered as a fully functioning, full-priced product.

If and when they iron out the kinks, they'll be cooking with gas. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Utterly useless...
Honestly if I hadn't spent the better part of eighty bucks on this thing, I'd be laughing. The search couldn't find the town in Italy I'm visiting. So I thought I'd widen the parameter and just put Florence (which it is near.) No luck--that just brought up a bunch of streets in the UK. So I tried Rome. Nope, can't find that. How about the country? Italy? No, that just brings up some hotels, etc.

So I tried to zoom in on the area the town is in and did manage to find it, though I still can't find Florence (despite knowing exactly where it is geographically.)

I am not a computer map neophyte here. I've been using MS Autoroute for years, but it won't run on my PowerBook. I bought this thinking 'how bad can it be?' The answer: Worse than I could have ever imagined--and I'm a pretty cynical guy.

Buy a paper map or get Virtual PC and run the MS stuff. Honestly, this is bad enough that I feel ripped off. (...) ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Create player and nonplayer characters and update them using the rules in the Player's Handbook or Skills & Powers. Many rules can be overridden to support the many special cases that occur in real-life AD&D games.

MapMaker II has been redesigned from the ground up. View overland, city, and dungeon maps, then print them in full color, flat color for ink and bubble jets, grayscale for laser printers, and black and white for dot-matrix printers. Maps can range in size from one piece of paper to a massive five-foot-by-five-foot poster.

Character sheets have been redesigned to be more paper efficient. Customize character sheets to specific user requirements. Create custom races, kits, psionic powers, spells, weapons, armor, equipment, magical items, monster, and more.

The interface to the program has been redesigned, taking user feedback from the first Core Rules CD-ROM into account. Directly access specific screens in character update.

Extensive online help is available at the touch of a button. Simply right-click on almost any item, spell, ability, or race to bring up details. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars It could be better
For those of you us who owned version 1.0 of the AD&D Core Rules CD-Rom, a revision is a long time in coming. Version 1.0 was a mess, with inconsistencies, broken programs, and a general feeling that TSR rushed it out as soon as possible without a whole lot of quality control (not an uncommon theme with TSR pre-WOTC takeover).

I'm happy to say they fixed a few problems. They also created a few more.

There are some staple elements that make you wonder why you ever bought any rule books. There's no less than nine of them, even more than version 1.0. Of course, that led me to wonder where the other ones were. Where's the Complete Book of ? The Wizard's Spellbooks? It doesn't matter. That's for Version 3.0.

Something seems to have happened to the Monster Manual, however. The pictures are no longer neatly displayed next to the descriptions. Instead, they're crammed into the RTF documents like the rest. Who wants to look at a monsterful of naked text?

What you will find is a hand-dandy number crunching program that allows you to make sense of all those Player's Option rules. I actually enjoyed this system, even if it was a bit awkward, because the Player's Option rules can make creating a character a much more complicated process.

Then there's the database. This database allows you to customize various objects, from magic items to monsters to encounters to kits. Which is neat. But only kits, and kits in the Players Option sense. Which means the kits are very weak. Also, there's a bit of confusion between giving a kit a bonus to a proficiency, a free proficiency, a preferred proficiency, and a required proficiency. Forget customizing classes -- THOU SHALT NOT TOUCH THE CORE RULES! Okay, so it's not THAT customizable.

I forgive all that. Having the cash equivalent of over $100 on a CD makes it worth the investment, especially if you're fond of hacking up the rules and want to insert your own house rules. To me, one of the biggest benefits of having AD&D rules in electronic text is what you can do with them.

What I can't forgive, however, is the mapping programs.

They tried. They tried very hard by including the Campaign Cartographer, which proved to be exceptionally dense and not particularly effective in mapping anything at all. I suspect it can be used by someone capable who wants to sit down and read the instruction manual, only there is none that accompany the CD. But that's not all! There's also another mapping program, the original mapping program that came with Version 1.0, Map Maker II.

That collective groan you're hearing in the background is from anyone who ever bought the first version. The reason they're groaning is because that sorry excuse for a mapping program didn't work. The good news is, it works now.

That's about it though. Worse, it's not exportable to any useful graphics format. No .pds, .bmps, .gifs. or jpgs. What good is this map? It works, but it's not even compatible with the Campaign Cartographer on the same CD!

Ultimately, the Advanced Dungeons and Dragons Core Rules CD-ROM 2.0 does what it's supposed to do: it's a solid reference that would make a valuable addition to any Dungeon Master's collection. But it could be better.

3-0 out of 5 stars A Good Idea but NOT user friendly
I got this product a couple of weeks ago because I am not converting to 3rd edition D&D rules .I found it useful. However, it has a lot of bugs and requires a lot of time if you want to specialize your game any.

First the good things that this product provides: *access to the handbooks is nice especially if you don't have one of them. *character generation is quick *ability to make maps on the computer *speeds up monster encounter creation

Now the many drawbacks! *NO KITS; which is what makes 2nd Ed so fun the versiblity. The product does have some kits but I don't know how they got them. The kits provided are not class specific (i.e. not from the complete handbooks) and turn out to be pretty useless. What's worse it is extremely hard to create kits that work correctly because the program is vary limited in adapability. *Specialty priest are a pain to set up. Program won't allow weapons not normally allowed to priests and sphere conflicts. *basically if you don't want a core character straight out of the player's handbook you are in for a real nightmare; however, it is possible given time. *be careful buying equipment. There is a bug

*The map programs are not easy to use. It is probably better to do them by hand unless you will be adjusting them and reusing them (i.e. campaign atlas or regional map) *monster creation can sometimes gooff up. But the results can be changed and the tables are adjustable (again if you have the time it can make your life easier in the long run) *when making treasure it just rolls gp values. It does not create art objects you still have to do that.

I COULD GO ON AND ON. HERE ARE THE KEY FACTS. IF YOU ARE NOT CONVERTING TO 3RD ED IN AUGUST THEN THIS PRODUCT IS STILL USEFUL (IF YOU HAVE THE PATIENCE TO CUSTOMIZE A LOT OF STUFF) HOWEVER, I HAD THE SAME FEELING AS THE LAST REVIEWER.

THIS PRODUCT SHOULD DO MORE!

5-0 out of 5 stars 5 Stars with a lot of qualifications
After deciding to get back into D&D after a long layoff I went to a store to see if there were any new books I might want. I got this (AND the expansion) instead. As a DM, I can't get over how much time it saves me. It is great for generating NPC's and encounters, as well as maps. Since all the basic D&D books are available, looking up stuff (if you know where to go) is handy. And maintaining characters and printing out new records after going up a level (or other significant changes) is really wonderful (especially for my kids who aren't so good at keeping records). I am able to develop and maintain a much more detailed adventure world in a lot less time. And another big plus - there are quite a few web sites with stuff that can be downloaded and imported (npc's, monsters, magic items, maps, etc.). Doing it is easy.

Now for the drawbacks: First, it is pretty buggy. I downloaded the latest patches and upgrades from the web, and that helped a lot. But there are several places where it crashes, or does dumb things (like generate 2000 mind slayers for a random encounter).

The documentation is pretty useless. Most of the stuff is so straightforward that documentation is hardly necessary, but not so for Campaign Mapper. I can now say I like CM, but it took quite a bit of experimenting and correction of mistakes to get the hang of it.

This is NOT a game. It is simply a tool, primarily for DM's.

There aren't enough character portraits. You can add your own, or perhaps find some on the web to download. But given that most characters start young, there are scarcely any portraits of youth.

I have this vague feeling that it should do more. It doesn't really do anything that I can't do without a computer. But it sure does it faster and neater!

For quality, I'd only rate this 2 stars. I'd have been pretty embarrassed (I'm an applications developer) to put something out with this many bugs. I'm going to be checking their web site with some regularity for patches (and upgrades, hope, hope). But as to overall value to me as a DM, definitely 5 stars. It could be a lot better though, so if there were competing products I'd probably have to rate it 3 to 4 stars.

Signed, Karen's hubby

4-0 out of 5 stars If you are a DM this is a must have.
The Core Rules CD-ROM is a great utility for DM's. If you are a player, most of the stuff contained in it will be practically useless, except for the player creation and the books. If you are a player, the best thing to do is show this to your DM because it will be a bigger help to him than you. Actually, having your entire gaming group pitch in for this, so the DM can have a copy would probably be the best idea. The player creation is great. It simplifies the sometime long procedure of creating a character. And if you'd rather roll up your character with pencil, paper, and dice, you can still enter your character for a hard copy rather than having the computer roll it up for you. The map making utility is practically useless. The maps don't look that good, and there are too few icons. The DM tools simplifiy the DM's life a lot. NPC's, random encounter tables, and the like can be created in a matter of minutes. The books that it comes with are nice to have, but they will never replace the original hard-bound paper versions. Who wants to go to their computer to look up a rule in the middle of a game, when they can have their book right there on the table with them? Not me. If you are new to D&D, don't buy this as a replacement for the books. Buy the Paper version of the Players Handbook. If you are a DM and are looking for a time saver, like I was, this is the thing for you.

5-0 out of 5 stars If you are into d&d don't think twice on buying this.
This is a must have if you are into d&d. t is great with or without the expansion pack. You can look up just about anything, and the mapmaker is a lot better then it used to be in version 1.0 . The graphics are better, and the charecter creation is a lot easier then before. But for those of you who are not very good at using computers you might have some trouble at first, but as you use ut more and more it is a lot better. Most people would say it is out of date, but I waited 20 days for this present from christmas of 1999 and it was well worth the 20 days of boring waiting ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Superior to my expectation
I bought this new version because I love the photo show made by the version 2.03, hoping there is a great enhancement in the new version. The product lives up to my expectation - show styles in the new version have improved a lot! Though not all styles favor my taste, it is my choice, and there are plenty of styles to choose from. Moreover, the Picture Pro edition let me change themes easily, for example, I can paint my own book covers and design pages for the 3D flipping book, and change the room and table settings.

One new feature I like particularly is the "My Albums" list. Now, I can keep a track of my built albums (I've built a lot!) and make any change of any album whenever I want to. I don't understand why there is a need to save, as one reviewer wrote. The album I built is the copy that saved from the preview. I can make the change of the copy using the same GUI controls I use during preview. There is no need to dig into the album files. Perhaps the reviewer is commenting on the version 2.03, which cannot be applied to this version.

I am an amateur photographer, and occasionally use Jasc Paint Shop to do some preliminary photo editing works. I didn't expect that 3D-Album Picture Pro come with a great photo editor, and did not even give it a try until the last weekend when I decide to create my own book cover. Holly cow, I can't believe that an album software come with such a powerful photo editor that is even better than my dedicated editing software. Jasc's tube brush is always my favorite but making my own tube is rather difficult. In Picture Pro, I simply create an image group and then drag and drop image into the group. I am very impressed by the Picture Pro's 3D layer styles and vector illustration tools.

I clicked the book cover image in the Photo Show page, choose the edit menu, and the software brings the book cover directly into the editor where I can put my own design. I can switch back and forth between the Photo Show page and the edit page until I get a happy result.

I bought the version 2.03 about one and half years ago. I remember there was a problem with my old HP laptop (not with my desktop) with S3 video card. The software will crash after running about 5 minutes. The support told me that the crash is due to the bug in the S3 video driver and upgrading the driver will solve this problem. But S3 video card was quite old and the support from HP was discontinued. I eventually got my new Dell Inspiron with GeForce FX. Both the old and new version now run smoothly without any problem. So, before buying the software, you should have a check of your computer. A decent 3D video card such as nVidia's GeForce or ATI's Radoen is the key, no matter how fast your CPU or how much memory your have.

2-0 out of 5 stars It could be MUCH better
Some people really love this program, but I don't get it. What bugs me the most is that it doesn't use the standard windows buttons and layouts. I must be really dumb, but I can't figure out how to save my slideshow because there is no save option! So if you want to create an album and make a few changes and save it as something else (so you can compare the two), as far as I know, you can't. After checking the help groups and reading tips, I sort of found out how to do it, but it was so complicated. I had to go into the file I originally saved and make changes there, not in 3D Album itself. How convoluted!

But I could put up with that if the albums themselves worked. I tried two different albums, both had the same problems. They would freeze after flipping through a few pages. The album would end, the book would close and yet my pictures were still flipping in mid air. The shortcut created on the desktop would open the album but noting else, it would crash everytime.

If you want a really good photo editor and a good slideshow (it won't have 3D backgrounds, maybe if you create them) try Ulead's PhotoImpact XL. For the price you get 1000 times more product and it works 100%

5-0 out of 5 stars An amazing collection of tools and a huge upgrade
I have the old version 2.03 and upgraded to the new version about 10 days ago. The new version is a huge upgrade. I was surprised to find that the new package contains almost all tools for my photo needs. It is no longer a picture show only software. Its photo organizer, printing, and editing features are as powerful as those professional tools. But what set this software apart to other products is still its 3d picture show tool. For these who want create movie-style picture shows, this is a must-have. Lots of new 3d styles and new controls are added in the new version. More selections. The DVD movie capture is integrated in the program. ... Read more
