Just remember to use sizes were the sizes are two or more categories apart from each other.

For instance 256x512 =good 128x512=bad

Also for reference, most good 2 player maps (and some 4 player ones) are 256x256

512x512 is already a very very big map. 1204x1204 maps are generally almost too big for multiplayer games.

You won't if you won't get past the basics now.

ok i figured out where to save it but when i look in the place to load ( on the SP skirmish screen ) it isn't there i saved it to C:Programfiles/THQ/Dawnofwar/W40K/Data/Scenarios/MP does that mean i can only play it in multiplayer mode?? ( btw sorry for double post again )
