What exactly is the problem? Is it SP or MP? Did you do a full compile? PK3 the files? You mentioned Arena File Creator, you can create arena files with notepad. So yeah, need a little more info, like what kind of errors is it generating.

well, i have learned most of the things that i have done on my own, though that is beside the point, here is what i have done. i have everything that way i want it for the beta version of the map. it is MP and its meant for FFA, w/e that will help. so i run the BSP FULVIS command and end up with the games final bsp form. then i run it through the arena file creator then im stuck...thats basicaly what i have managed to do. seems minimal i know, but as i am a noob at mapping i need some direction. does this help narrow the problem down? its not like i do all the right stuff and errors pop up, no. its like i dont know what to do to play it at all. its a problem yes, but i would like a list of instructions on when where and how to do this this and this with the map. thats all i need. im confident that i will be able to undertand anything that has to do with my PC just need a little nudge in the right direction. thankx

Yeah, here's a good tip. Don't use that arena creator. Notepad works fine for it. Here's a samle of what to put in that file: { map "jsa_tffa" //This is the actual name of the bsp longname "JSA Team FFA Tournament" //This is your long-version map name fraglimit "0" //arbitrary, Not sure what this does type "ffa team dual" //Supported Game types }

Then just save it as something.arena and place it in your /scripts in your maps pk3 file.
