You have incorrect info in some or all of your .con files, within the map. Go through each .con file with the edit feature in battlecraft, and fix the errors. Extract and look through the .con files of other working maps, to see what correct info looks like in these .con files. Remove the broken map from your levels folder to run battlefield and play. But dont delete it, you can still open it and fix it with battlecraft later, by putting it back in the levels folder. If it wont open with the editor, extract it, and use whatever good parts are still good, in a new remake. To atleast try and salvage your work. If the extractor wont open it to extract, then its garbage and just delete it, and start over. Learning to do extracting, and then looking through working maps con files, to see how different stuff is done. Is the best way to learn. Just compare your maps con files, against those of a working map, and it will show you what you have missing or errors.

Yes, you need an .rfa extractor tool FH Modding Tool Pack V1.1, Battlefield 2142 Downloads, Battlefield 2142 Mapping This is the modding toolpack, it will have most of what you need. Good luck! :) P.S. you need 5 gigs of harddrive space for the toolpack, it includes most of the samples for making lightmaps on FH custom objects.

run debugger... you need to set bf42 to Fullscreen 0

then open logfile, search for your map's name.
