Probably I may already know the answer but to make sure. Does anyone know when I download a new map, there are parts of the ground that are purple and also there some big purple circles with purple question marks inside?
the big pink question marks are there because you are missing the decal used in that area. It means that either the decal was accidentally left out of the map folder, or it's in a seperate folder and needs to be moved to the decals folder in Data. When you extracted the contents of the map, what did you get? (content wise)
What do you mean by that?
I mean, that when you download a map, it comes in a zipped folder. you then extract this to anywhere you want, i usually extract to desktop. You should now have a folder infront of you with the map name. Put this in the mp folder as usual. If there are any other folders with decals or textures in them, generally these are saved as .dds or .tga, so if you see anything with those ends, put them into the decals folder. This is found by going to DXP2-art-decals. If you see a file with the with the map name followed by either _icon or _mm leave it be. What was the name of the map you downloaded? and where did you get it? if it was here on DoW files there's probably a better explanation in the readme. Also, if you have problems, others most likely do too, so just read the comments from where you downloaded
Well it's that Highway topaz map. The highway is replaced by those purple stuff.
Well, I don't really know why the highway should be purple question marks, as far as i know that decal came with the game. There maybe another decal covering it which is causing the problem. The maps creater gave an email address at the top of the page where you downloaded it. I would suggest you contact him, send him a screen shot of the problem, an ask nicely if he'll send you the decal needed.
