I need help on how to make a survival map. I looked up on the relic forums and found one tutorial, but that did'nt really help me. So if anyone knows how, than can you please offer a tip or two? Thanks.
1) Download survival map pack 2) Open up a survival map in the ME 3) Export the SCAR markers 4) Make a survival map 5) Import the SCAR markers from 3 6) Copy a survival map .SCAR file in the map directory and rename it to .SCAR
Could this work for the soulstorm races by any chance? And thanks, I have a horrible understanding of SCAR so it might take me some time...
Ok last question, when I get to wave three it says "fatal SCAR error - execution paused", what do I do to fix that?
Depends on the error! Quickest way is to press ctrl + alt +@, see what the error message is and then fix the SCAR.
Ok. not to be a pest but I have 3 more questions: 1) Im now using SciTE to edit the code, but where do I press ctrl + alt + @ in order to find the error? 2) How can I make a code compadable for SS? (as in what functions should i replace such as units). 3) How do I make it so I have waves form different teams come at me? Thanks for those who helped!
when in game, if it says fatal scar error - execution paused or whatnot, then press ctrl+alt+@ to bring down the console and see the error. You can then alt+tab out to SCITE, save the SCAR and then back in game restart the map.
The answers to 2 and 3 are quite long, it really is best if you look at the code and the SCARdoc and work out how it hangs together. In particular, look at how players are declared, normally by using the start position and probably with a variable like g_player, and also how the waves are spawned.
Thanks! This is really gonna be a good help to any one. I was just trying to make some suicide maps and the wave thing would be really helpful for them.
and why do you want it on soulstorm?
Were I a guessing man I would say that.... he has soulstorm and wants to use the 2 new races.
