PostSubject: Sodding Maps! :(   Sun 02 Jan 2011, 8:42 am

What format are the map suppost to be in in order to use them. The maps i download are always in the wrong bastarding format and its starting to do my napper in. I have maps in pk3, cfg and bsp and half the twats dont work! Ive just sent the server to zoned because i was gonna judge a tourney, but my map format was wrong so i got disconnected and cant get back on. Ive tried changing the format of the map between bsp, pk3 and cfg and non seems to work. Also when i have maps in folders they dont seem to work either, i have to take the map out of the folder so its directly in base in order to make it work. Anyways what is the proper format for these maps???? HELP! confused

a map, n o o b phoenix, must be a .bsp file. The bsp file must be placed under /maps folder of the pk3.
the error regarding "map not found" could be 2 things:
1) map missing
2) internal bug of the server

/maps folder of pk3?

What do you mean by this junior?

I thought they just had to be in base

urmm
the .pk3 file is a sort of .zip
also .pk3 files can be opened as zips (use winrar, alzip, 7zip or wtf u want)
be sure that the .pk3 file contains a folder named maps
check if in this folder there is the .bsp of the map
for example, for forest_house:
Forest_house.pk3 --->open (i use 7zip)---->maps---->forest_house.bsp

=P

Right my version of zoned is a cfg file, and it should be pk3 yes? But i cant change it. Changing the file name does not make any difference, i need to change its type, how do i do that?

well, when you change the file name (from .txt to .bsp, for example) you change the "type" or "extension" of the file... that looks weird
add my xfire 00napalm00 so we can talk about it

No for some reason changing the name isnt changing the type, its fixed as cfg. I might try and download it again. I havent got x-fire btw.

yea better if you download it again lol
the .cfg file of a map usually contains map display name and useless things
some mappers don't even include a .cfg file in the .pk3
still, having a zoned.cfg file instead of zoned.pk3 file in base folder is weird...

Yeah pk3 format but with .bsp in the name. See what i think i need is ats_zoned_v2.bsp in pk3 format. But i cannot seem to get it like that. If the name is bsp then format changes to bsp, same goes for cfg and pk3. If i can get the format to pk3, but i need to change the name to pk3 in order to do it, which is wrong. Ive never had this problem with my maps before Neutral

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah

When you downloaded it you probably openned it .. because when you DL it .. it's in pk3 .. the map calls ats_zoned_v2.pk3 ... you probably openned it then *Maps* and there is ats_zoned_v2.bsp ... Many other maps are in .zip / .rar file but zoned is pk3 so when u DL it you dont have to open it or convert or some ... just put into base.

Dont extract it when it already is in .pk3 (zoned)
Extract it when it's in .rar / .zip

i usually set the .pk3 file to be opened by 7zip, so by watching the icon i see it is a pk3 ^^

Traducir por favor.
Un archivo .pk3 es un archivo .zip el cual contiene barios archivos y carpetas.
En la carpeta llamada maps encuentras un archivo .bsp el cual es el mapa compilado y no puede ser modificado.
Si no puedes ver las extensiones de los archivos métete a panel de control, opciones de carpetas, apartado ver, configuración avanzada, busca ocultar las extensiones de archivo para tipos de archivos reconocidos, para así poder cambiar un archivo .pk3 a .zip
fue brebe espero le entiendas
