1: Costum Textures 2.1: Adding map loading picture 2.2: Taking Screenshot of map 3: Error list (not made by me) 4: Making the map show up in list/ how to make .Arena file

well i want to show some of this for the lazy type (just like me ;)) that dont wonna search the forums and just ask! now plz just read this and u might find alotta ure errors etc. insted of bugging us all with a half page with TW_MAX_VERTS Exeeded 12 ()

1: Costum Textures : First make a folder in base called "Textures" then in that folder create another folder called anything (Note. u probebly need to name it in one word fx. "my_map" and not "my map" without " of cause) then u put ure pictures into that folder. pictures need to be the size of: 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 512, 1024, etc. then run GtkRadiant now go to the place u choose Textures (in program) named "Textures" scroll down the list and then u should see ure texture folder called "my_map" press on that and all the pictures u puttet into the folder u created called "my_map" will be there. now u think, "what if i want my pic to be another size than the ones i can choose?" well.. press 'S' to open Surface inspector while ure selecting ure brush, now if u want it to fit exactly just press 'Fit' bottun "now was that so hard?" try expiriment with all the things in the Surface inspector. now when u create the .pk3 remember to include the textures.. so put in the folders "textures/my_map/***.jpg" include every single texture in it. Note. sometimes u have to re-compile ure map to make textures work but thats not very often.

2.1: Adding map picture : First take ure name of ure map and remember it fx. "my_map" ;) now take put the .jpg picture u want to be the picture showen when loading ure map, rename it the exactly same name as ure map fx. "my_map" now go rezize the picture to the size of 512 x 512 i think u can use 800 x 800 aswell but i havnt tryed ;) now u got ure picture in the right size and right name now put it into a folder in base called "levelshots" now it will show up in game if u done exactly what i said. now remember to put folder and the pic into ure .pk3 file when done.

2.2:Taking screenshots of map : "now u want a pic of ure map! but how?, then u just go ask on forum right? NO! wrong! u look a little more down and read!" first go open ure map (or the map u want to take the screenshot of :P ). then open console and type this: /bind screenshot now press ure key i settet it to f12 so i press f12 in game and then the in the left top corner of screen u see something like this "Wrote screenshot 001" now go out and look in ure base u got a folder called "screenshots" open that and look there is a .jpg file open that... now u think "wow its the palce where i pressed the botuun!" well now u get mad because u can see the player and the status bar etc. now listen: first do everything i said before but now insteed of pressing the button first do this in console: /cg_draw2d ! then everything like status bar etc. goes away now go spectate and fly where u want to take ure picture now take it and then pen console and again type /cg_draw2d ! and everythign comes back again!.. now go to the folder "screenshots" and look at the new picture called 002 insteed of 001 then u think "wow it works perfect now.." thats all to that.

3 : Error list (not made by me) : ok im tired of all thoes MAX_TW_VERTS Exeeded 12 () errors and all thoes MAX_MAP_VISIBILITY 12 () exeeded threads!so here is a link to most errors: http://www.theunknown-clan.com/upload/index.php?showtopic=6 so here u go

4: Making the map show up in list/how to make .Arena file : first use a program such as "Notepad" open it and then write: { map "my_map" //type exact .bsp name longname "My Map" //type the name that will show up in list fraglimit "" // fraglimit i never put anything in so u can just let it be as here. type "ffa tffa ctf" // type the types the map will be showen under } dont type the // and whats after its just explanation now save it as a .Arena file fx. "my_map.Arena" remember to use ure map name to keep things tidy. now put it into a folder in base named "scripts" if there isnt one alredy make one. now it works! remember to put the folder scripts and the .Arena file into the .pk3 when ure map is done ;) :P

well i hope u all could use this. sorry for places where i might have written wrong, just ask me what i mean and ill answer if u dont understand. P.S. in some sec maybe GothiX will come with a bad critic of this thread :P
