ok i looked up the excellent tutorials on the site but so far nothing seems to work, i put the camera_1 etc. for how many i want yet they don't work, only way to get it to work is if there are no start points but then everyone starts in the middle, notice this is my first time making a map, but it's just confusing because i did everything right.Might it have to do that i made bases for each start point with more than the regularstart building? because when i tested it out with everyone starting in the middle all the buildings i placed weren't in the game, very frustrating.also it won't let me change the map size, i'll hit ok and it won't change.

when you make the map did you press alternate and r and put the number of players in the player slot e.g player1 : player player2: player etc. etc as for the bases they don't show up in a game (at least the never have when i have done)

that'll probably be the problem, set all the people playing to people and it should work, for the map size, it might have done it, if you zoom all the way out you should see if not i don't know why

for the map size, you have to exit, go to the desk top, and restart the game, go back to the editor

it still won't place the players where i want, they always start in the middle, i didn't change a single thing, i placed "Camera_1" and "Camera_2" where i wanted the players to be but no go.

Are you trying to resize the map before a save and reload, and after you are placeing start locals?
