i got the map by legswideopen called ctf bajor but when i try to play it it just goes back to the main menu. this has happend with one or two others as well. what can i do to fix this?
Try running the maps with pure server turned off. Load EF, and on the main menu screen, open the console and type "sv_pure 0" (without the speech marks), now start the map. EF has problems playing offline if you have more than 64 maps in baseef, including the 38 that come with it.
You only have to do this once, EF will save this setting.
When you open the console do you see any errors/messages?
i click engage, it starts loading, and when it gets to where it is loading the map, it goes to the main menu, no messsages or anything.
