    what part of it are you having trouble with? Finding the area?

    I know that for me, it's as if the T-maps are One screen width off from where they should be. It could be happening to you, too. As other seem to be able to find maps exactly where they are supposed to be, it's likely a bug only affecting some of us. It might be related to the bug that screws up house placement, if you move the game play window from its default position at the uppermost left of the screen.

    Place some sort of marker (like a bandage or piece of bright cloth) where you THINK the chest should be, then spiral outward looking for it - you'll probably end up with the marker completely off your screen, if you're bugged like me. After you've cleared the spawn, see just how off the map location is from where the chest actually was, and assume that all your chests will be off in that direct by that much distance, and you'll have a lot less trouble with future maps.

    Try these links if they may be of help

    I recall also of another link with further explainations on how to better find a treasure chest location with the Classic Client, with a particular detailing on the Pin showing on the Map and the actual location of the chest (they seem to be a bit offset...) but can't seem to find the link now. Perhaps someone else can point to it ?

    Or, if you can afford it, you can buy a Davies Locker, put the decoded map into it, and see the exact co-ordinates... Not an option for everyone I know, but the good thing is, the Lockers have security settings, so if you just know someone with one, you can ask if they'll let you have access to theirs to quickly drop maps into!
