the .arena file tells JK2 what kinda gametype the map is(like duel or FFA) and it tells that this is a map;) and it tells the Longname(the name in the map selection screen)! and some other things...if u wan tto make a simple .arena with the really important things than try this one

{ map "XXX" <---- here the name of the .bsp file longname "XXX" <---- here the Longname type "FFA" <---- here the gametype }

so thats it...hope i helped

1. Open up NotePad 2. Type the following in NotePad: [code] { map "blah" longname "whatever" type "ctf" } [code] (keep the spaces and everything)

3. Save the file like I've shown in the attached screeny. (As the filename make SURE you put the name in quotes!!!!!!! Like the Filename will be ["yourmap.arena"]

4. You should have a yourmap.arena file now

REMEMBER: .arena files go in the 'scripts' folder in your PK3 file.
