I've gotten myself into map making now,and i must say,it's a breeze to learn.My map doesn't look that great i'll admit,it's kind of barren,but i'm please with it.My question is,how do i play it on the game?Whenever i load WA the map doesn't show up on the skirmish list.Help anyone?

Where have you saved it to? I've not mapped, but I've picked up from other people, and the obvious answer is normally that it's in the W40K folder instead of the WA/WXP folder :)

I really need to pay more attention.By about 5 minutes after i posted this i managed to play it in game rofl.Stupid,stupid me.But there is one thing i need help with.I'm currently making my second map,an urban 2v2 map,but i can't seem to mark the starting locations.By that i mean i can't make the numbers appear on the picture of the map in the skirmish screen.And here's a few pics of the map to see if anyone likes it.

You need to create your own custom minimap for that. Take a screenshot of the map overview, and using the GIMP, make it look all funky/like a minimap. Then save it as a .tga and put it in the same place as your map. That was an insanely brief overview of how to do it, I'll try and find a more in-depth one. No doubt I'm wrong. :)
