hello there, I'm Emilio, a LOTR player from Spain. I've already played all the maps of the LOTR 2 and LOTR 2: ROTWK, as well as the user made maps which can be found on Filefront.com's download section (thanks!), but it's time to make my owns maps if I don't want to get bored. I've downloaded all the articles and tutorials, and still have questions: - I put the map file (.map) on the right directory, but it doesn't appear on the game. - Also, I don't know how to make a .tga file of my own simply map, in order to see the preview the map. - I'm having problems with some structures, such as mountains and walls, but I don't know any map maker personally, so I get clogged. Can any experienced map maker help me? I learn fast, and I promise not to be heavy. - Finally, I'm surprised becouse I didn't find any spaniard website dedicated to the lord of the rings games. Checking out the links list, all them are english or even german. I dont mind about english, but its a pity that there's no good spanish websites dedicated to these subjects. Best regards and sorry for lots of questions, Emilio G.
Thanks Alathar, I knew about the 3rd age; I found 3 tutorials available there, very good (by the way), but I think there's a couple that are not in; the third one talk about textures, but at the end of it, appears like it's one of more tutorials; where are the others? In the tutorials found at 3rd age it can be read that they're from Worldbuilder.org, but I can't find the website. Best regards, Emilio G.
You can make tga files with "Gimp" or "Paint.net". Both programs are free. Personally, I use both of them.
Emilio if you want any help just ask me... Do you have xfire, msn or yahoo messenger?
