    Welcome to the community

    I imagine it is because you are reaching a process size limit of the tool. Watch the task manager and see how large the process gets as you try higher and higher resolutions. You might end up having to do your map in pieces.

    Talonhawke what help section? Files for FG should be much lower quality.... 50px per 5' grid square is a good guide.

    The blue circle with the i in the middle it's actually labeled directions. So the next question would be how to get that to print at 1inch for each 5ft square when printing if I use 50px.

    I think he wants to print the map, not use it in FG.
    If there is something that you would like to see in Fantasy Grounds that isn't currently part of the software or if there is something you think would improve a ruleset then add your idea to the wish list http://fg2app.idea.informer.com/

    The dpi (dots per inch) is a measure of quality of image not the size of the square. You can print out at anything from 50px right up to super high dpi. As reported above it may well be depending on the map you are working on. If it is a big map and you are wanting it to print in a high resolution then that will make it massive. So either break the map into smaller chucks or print out in a lower res.

    If you're looking to print out the map, just use this tool to get the grid sized correctly, don't change the base size of the map. For example, if the base DPI of the map is 100 don't change that. Just export your map with the grid aligned. Then load up the map in a graphics app (e.g. GIMP) and do whatever resizing you want to do (and probably sharpening to reduce the blur if you're increasing the DPI above the original). Then print from the graphics app.

    Keep in mind - if it hasn't been stated before - a lot of maps will not fit correctly unless you load it into a graphic editor - lay down a grid and resize X / Y until it fits the grid you've put down - I've converted over 200 maps by now and more than half had to be hand-adjusted before even attempting to use them...

    Absolutely - that's the main purpose of the excellent application Valeros created and attached in post #1.
