Hey, i just Downloaded Battlecraft, and i tried to make a new map really quick, and when i go to Tools>Generate Object Lightmaps, then i get a error, and the whole editor just shuts off. and when i try to go to tools>test map it gets done loading, then it just kicks me out of the game w/ no error, could use some help please
Thank you, [NoS]Cru$her
Here how you fix it.
2. After the download is complete go to your main bf1942 directory (ex. programs/EA Games/Battlefield1942) and make a folder called "standardMesh".
3. Now go to the file you just download called "samples.zip" and extract all the files in that folder to the "standardMesh" folder you just made.
That should be all now go and try it agin.
Ok, thank you very much. now i am having another problem.... i go to load my map, and it gets all the way done loading.. then it just kickes me from BF w/out any explanation. I am pretty sure that i have all the required components (axis/allie main spawn, spawns, 2 control points, 2 jeeps on each side). Maybe there is like an error log somewhere? i dont know, could use some help if you do not mind.
^I have the same problem^
do u get the maplist.con error? im having that problem
Ok, i ^Somewhat^ figured out the problem where you get kicked when you try to load the map. I took a shot in the dark and tried to put the level on a friends comp in his ~bf1942/mods/bf1942/archives/levels~(somthing along those lines) and guess what? it worked. i have no idea why it didnt work on mine.
About this thing. i was just jacking around, and made a map w/ a bridge in the air and stuff like that, it was all screwed up, and when i went to do the texturemap thing.. it gave me that error, so maybe you cannot go crazy w/ all the placements etc (ex: placing a bridge in the air w/ spawn points on it seemed to screw me up and give me that error)
Well, i hope my post will help some of you
it kicks me out of the game when i play the map thro bc too. and now i know you cant use that button, go thro battlefield 1942.
Yea same thing here, i press test map i get a maplist.con error, and if i load it up from BF42 it crashes right after completed loading. My sigfried line map would kick serious ass if i could get the damn thing to work!
BF does have a log, if your getting kicked from normal BF then the log will be in here: Battlefield 1942\Mods\bf1942\Logs and the file should be a .log, just open with wordpad. what went wrong should be said at the bottom of the file.
