[color=silver]Sorry if someone already asked this question, I didn't see a thread anywhere. Sooo, it would seem that a lot of my mp maps, about half at least, don't show up in the map select screen- neither in the 'create a server' nor the 'call vote/map' select. Now, if I go into console and type /load duel_tibanna for example, it'll load it up, so I know it's able to access the file. I'd be fine with this if it didn't mean I have to remember 50+ map names by heart. Heh. Anybody else having this glitch and if so, how do you fix it? [/color]

Do you have a .arena file for your map? Is everything in a pk3?

To create a .arena: 1. Open Notepad 2. Put in the following lines:

{ map "mapname" longname "longname of map" type "ffa" (you can put ffa, duel, ctf, etc depending on your map) }

3. Save the file with this filename: "mapname.arena" (INCLUDE the quotation marks when you're saving!!!!!)

Just replace 'mapname' with your mapsname and you're all set :D .arena files should be placed in your 'scripts' folder.

Also, you need a levelshot of your map, you know when you load a map you see a screeny of the map.. that's a levelshot. Just take a screenshot of your map, resize it to 1024x1024, and place it in the 'levelshots' directory with the same name as your .bsp file i.e. mapname.jpg

Hope this helps :)

[COLOR=silver]Yeah I know the levelshot deal, but these aren't my maps, Exit, they're maps I got mainly from JK2files.com (quick plug for the site, heh). So is it just a problem with the maps themselves that these people have created? Like I said, it seems like about 50 maps aren't displaying.[/COLOR]
