So my clan have recently decided they want grenades when not in match mode on call of duty 4's promod live... so i set about creating a custom public mode that has been built off of one of the existing IWD files.

When i come to upload the file on our server however the server wont start up. can anyone help ...

to help u help me :p im going to tell you what i did...

first of all i unzipped an existing IWD file (into the following directory: \z_custom_ruleset\promod_ruleset\custom_public the last part is the file name) and edited it in a different wordpad to what it came in when i had finished edited it looked like this (yup im going blue peter on u guys)

does anyone see any problems with that?? if so say if thats the problem...

I then saved the wordpad file as custom_public.gsc which is the same name as the file that was unzipped i then deleted the file that was unzipped in the first place. in the same folder on my computer i replaced the old file with my new edited file so that i could then

after saving the file i then wanted to zip it back up into an IWD file so i used winrar again to zip it back up and i changed the .zip to .iwd before it got zipped.

at the end the zipped file is this z_custom_ruleset.iwd

so there are two folders in the zip file untill you get to the custom_public.gsc file.....

i then uploaded the .iwd file to the server and put it in the promod live folder and then i entered the /set promod_mode custom_public into the start up script as i usually do.... and then thats the last step so i started the server however i could not join it as it would not start up...

please help....
