I have two problems. My map won't run when I try to run it. It goes straight back to the main menu and half of the background is black. I am confused as hell. I have other scenarios that I've played like Battle of the Bridge (my map is like that but there is the two bases, the bridge, and a gigantic ocean around that XD) and I can't find anything settings different from mine so I'm wondring why it won't work.
My second problem is that I can't get the screenshots to work. I took screenshots of my map and now I can find them inside of my program folders.
hmm weird. do you have a the original aom or aomx CD?
for the screenshots, make sure you have a folder called "screenshots"
does this happen in aom or aot?
i have aot and i do have the original disc and the folder called screenshots!! im stuck..... i also dont know how to open .bar files..... i wanna make a map that has a .xc extension so i can play it in single player but i dont know how to do that either >_
and the map still doesnt work .......
to open .BAR files you nwws AoMed program which can be downloaded at www.aom.heavengames.com
you mean .scx extension scenarios. just open AoT and save an scenario....easy as that...if you open an .scn on the AoT editor, ans save it, it will save as .scx.
Ive given up taking screenies using the features in the editor. Just press the 'print screen' button, minimise AOM, and then 'paste' the picture into the program. Its just as easy and you get to save the pictures in any format and in any directory.
BTW in case you are wondering screenshots taken using the AOM editor should be located in: My documents/my games/Age of Mythology/screenshots so check that location.
i have the AoMeD file and i extracted the file and i don't c my map and im not sure if it might be called something else in the .BAR file..... wut .BAR file am i supposed to extract from and i am talking about .xc.... those r the files like watering hole and black sea.... i have seen custom made maps such as TW I Trojanheim.xc and TW I Collosseum.xc and im just trying to make my maps able 2 open like watering hole and black sea
Your map would not appear in the .BAR file. That file consists only of the scenarios included in the main campaign that comes with the game. Are you trying to create a random map or something then?
yea im trying to make a random map! thats exactly it! but im not sure how to cuz i dont know where my map is stored..... and i dont know how to make it work anyways..... but id like to find out..... where are the custom maps stored??
Custom maps are stored here:
My documents/my games/Age of Mythology/scenario
