are the Adventure positions in the map api at the moment? (I know i know, more HoT specific stuff...)
nope
They shouldn't be too hard to add IIRC

I kind of assumed they'd be wherever the misc icons like dungeons would be kept
I'm pretty sure they're a totally different adventure-specific system

everything is specific in this game on the map isn't it :D
well, they were tied to output states
so they're not directly on the map -- they're on the output which is on the map

don't get me wrong, hardcoding those would be much easier for me to do* than the JPs.. there's only 12?
about that
I can throw them in to the map data though, that's not a big deal

gotta love twitters silly url shortener and all those .io domains
oh, did not expect that url behind it

seems like @ChieftainAlex got fed up with that redlink... :D http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/API:Maps

well i wasn't going to pretend that i'm qualified to fill out the help for maps, but I figured I could make a start
apparently cliff's original example wasn't directly compatible with the 1.0.0-rc version of leaflet i chose to use
+ the coordinate upon click was incorrect

@codemasher Do you have a link for that / could explain why? I am curious.

smiley
@codemasher
Jun 25 2016 22:43
there's somewhere stated that it only may be displayed context with whatever
also: usage limits
i remember discussing this, but i don't know where that was

might also merge some of this http://wiki-de.guildwars2.com/wiki/API#Kachel-Service

that link, when i saw kachel-service, i literally thought you meant a heater service or something, because "kachel" in dutch

and i was confused :D

@codemasher
Jun 25 2016 22:50
@queicherius my Overwolf app is technically against the ToS, too, because standalone maps are not allowed... (the ToS for the Flash API might be different. but is that still a thing?)
@Archomeda "kachel" for heater isn't so far away - http://www.dict.cc/?s=kachel
imagine ovens covered with glazed tiles
"Kachelofen"
