I have a few of problems that I need answered before I can complete my map please help me out :bows:

1) My map does not show up in the create server list although my .arena file seems just fine. Here's what I have on it:

{ map "ffa_ds_elements" longname "-{DS}- Elements" fraglimit 10 type "ffa team" }

2) I cannot find a way to make a room where you are kind of standing in the air if you get what I mean. Some shaders don't work (and I don't understand shaders anyway)

3) How do I get music in my map? I want to have the yavfinal_explore.mp3 music file in but what would I write in the worldspawn entity window to get it?

Thanks for your help :cheers:

1) If that is your arena file I presume your .bsp is called ffa_ds_elements.bsp. I also presume your arena file doesn't have a hidden .txt file extension because of your PC setup and finally it is in the scripts folder right?

2) Use a brush covered in system/clip

3) It says this in the worldspawn "music" music wav file. So key music, value path/to/yourmp3.mp3 (where path/to/ is from base)

Like Wade said, plus:

1) This should be .arena file, not .txt, and should be in 'scripts' folder

2)system/clip blocks players, but not weapons. system/physics_clip blocks lasers and rockets, too

3)As I remember, yavfinal_explore.mp3 is in JO, not in JA:

copy this mp3 file to directory 'music\elements' (elements-name of your map) in worldspawn make key 'music' with value music/elements/yavfinal_explore.mp3. Remember about typing / Do not make this: \

1) My .arena is in the scripts folder but I am not sure about that "hidden .txt file" not sure what you mean by that.

2) I thought of all this before but every time I put system/physics_clip it made a leak .

3) I know yavfinal_explore.mp3 is a JO file but other people had music in their maps that were not in the game either.

"I put system/physics_clip it made a leak" - if it's in the map it can't do...if you're using it for the hull of the map it will.

If it has a hidden .txt file extension it will show up as the same icon as a text file.

So you are saying I should make it a .txt file then export it to a .arena file. So far all I did was rename the .sxw file to a .arena (.sxw is the extension that the program i use to write uses)

What is SXW? If you open an SXW file in notepad is it readable? If it's not readable in notepad it's not going to work.

Ah! No wonder!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks for that one... As for the music, i wrote this in the entity window: key: music value: C:\Program Files\LucasArts\Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy\GameData\base\Assets0\music\yavin1\yavfinal_explore.mp3

is that good or not? (i moved the yavfinal_explore.mp3 to that folder)

bad....

value should be Assets0/music/yavin1/yavfinal_explore.mp3 if the music is located there (relative path from /BASE/)

If I were you I'd delete Assets0 (THE FOLDER NOT THE PK3!!!) and move it up so it's C:\Program Files\LucasArts\Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy\GameData\base\music\yavin1\yavfinal_explore.mp3 making the worldspawn value music/yavin1/yavfinal_explore.mp3

Ok thanks I got it to show up on the create server list now... And about what you just said, can't i just copy the "music" folder into the "base" folder instead of deleting the whole Assets0 folder?
