when the map is done you need a .arena file and you need to .pk3 it
Also, a great couple of getting started tuts are the room101 and 102 video tuts in the dl section.
have fun, and good luck!!
.arena thats that script thing isnt it? Another problem I'm having is that when i zip my folders and try to rename mymap.zip to mymap.pk3 it turns out to just be mymap.pk3.zip, I'm using windows xp i think that might be why because im not aquainted with it. Can anyone tell me how to make it just pk3 without the zip at the end?
------------- Ok see if this helps.
from another forum:
This is the way I make a .pk3 (or use the tut here)
I use XP so this is built into the OS:
1. Right click on the desktop and choose "new/ compressed (zipped) folder" Name the folder "mapname.zip"
2 create a folder on the desktop called "maps" copy your .bsp into it drag that folder into the "mapname.zip"
3 create a folder on the desktop called "scripts" copy your .arena file there drag that folder into the "mapname.zip"
4 create a folder on the desktop called "gfx" create a folder inside "gfx" called "menus" create a folder inside "menus" called "levelshots" copy your .jpg file there (levelshots) drag the folder "gfx" into the "mapname.zip"
5 rename the mapname.zip to mapname.pk3
yer i had this problem of converting the zip to pk3 but i found that if you select the default program to open a pkl3 the winzip or wat ever it will then let you rename it to a pk3 and just be a .pk3 without the zip on the end
I want to be like the Admins
