i dont want to sound overtly dumb or anything, but how do i make the
SP map i have run, so that i can play it?
Please dont bump a topic. Also open your console in the Single Player and type /map_oraIWDtest
ddint work. oraIWtest isnt a Map file anyways, its a IWD file.
Convert it to a map then. I mean you are trying to get it to be a SP map right?
yes. People were telling mee that that is what it was. So ummm... how do i do it then?
Check out modsonline.com for more info. It shoudl have great help for building a SP map

To run a SP mod, you have to run it in an fs_game folder.
To do this, create a new folder in the COD2 directory and call it 'oraIWD'. the directory will then be this:
C:\Program Files\Actvision\Call of Duty 2\oraIWD (this assumes you installed COD2 to the default directory. Adjust it to suit your installation if different)
Place the oraIWDtest.iwd in this folder.
Go to your desktop and copy the COD2SP shortcut. Rename it oraIWD.
right click it, and left click 'properties'. You will see a field box called 'target'. Click your cursor into there and press the 'End' key. Press the space bar once.
Add this to the end line:
+set fs_game oraIWD "
the whole thing should look like this:
"C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 2\CoD2SP_s.exe" +set fs_game oraIWD "
Close and save. Now, when you double click the shortcut, the SP mission should start up.
NB - I have not heard of this mod, and I have no idea what is actually in it. If it is a map, you might need to get the name of the map to get this to run properly. to do this, open the oraIWDtest.iwd file with something like WinRar, and you will see some folders. You will see one called 'maps'. Double click this.
You will then see a folder called 'mp'. Double click this. Inside this, you will see several files. The one you want to note is the one that ends .d3dbsp - this is the name of the map.
Note the name of the map and add it to the end of the startline in the SP shortcut you edited, so that it will look like this:
"C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 2\CoD2SP_s.exe" +set fs_game oraIWD map whatever"
this should start it up if the other way didnt work
