Stephe Thomas correctly noted that ps18xx needs a few additional tweaks in order to be smoothly used as per Founding Platforms, most notably to support alternative paper sizes (I think I used A1 for the 1830 map? Might have been A2 – play with it) and to adjust the layout for track tiles to fit correctly on US Letter paper. I’ve made a GitHub repository with the requisite changes and sent them to Stephe Thomas as well. Homefully the changes will make it into his master.
Note: The key to using the various paper sizes is setting a PAPERSIZE environment variable to the desired paper size:
$ PAPERSIZE=letter make P30.ps make 30 playable tile list perl concat.pl -d src P30.ps $ ps2pdf P30.ps $ lp P30.pdf
$ PAPERSIZE=A1 make M30.ps make 30 map perl concat.pl -d src -a M30.ps $ ps2pdf M30.ps
The supported paper sizes are:
