as far as im aware, you shouldnt have spaces in the filenames. use underscores instead... ummm also, the "map" line in the code doesnt match the filetype you put in the pk3. im no mapper. but maybe thats it? also, i r wub inyri =O

Have you tried opening it with "devmapall (yourmap)" Is it there and not showing up?

I'll try underscores... but when i do devmap it says it can't find it!!! I'm still a 'bit' confused :( right now I'm trying to get it to work...can some one tell me...I thought the bsp and Arena had to be seperate and couldn't have the same bsp and bsp or Arena and Arena i thought they should both be seperate 1 bsp and 1 Arena???????????????

its this line: map "my first map (Paintball Xtreme).bsp"

rename the .map and the .bsp to myfirstmap_paintballextreme

then change the line to: map "myfirstmap_paintballextreme" (DONT PUT THE .BSP)

oh and Szico VII may I use two of your poster textures from the Dark Forces Streets Final map? The reason I'm asking is because I want that return of the jedi poster for the lobby in my map. Well thank you anyways that bit of info helped me!!! :)

how do i make my arena script and ARENA file?????

{ map "myfirstmap_paintballextreme" longname "^5The ^2Hidden ^3Hangout" fraglimit "none" type "ffa, duel" }

just paste the above into notepad, then save it as myfirstmap_paintballextreme.arena (make sure it's not saving as .txt, change it to all file types) save it into your base/scripts folder :)

bah, just take it from the beginning.. make a folder named maps, where you put your map called Paintball Xtreme.bsp Make a script folder, with a file called Paintball Xtreme.arena the arenafile should look like this: { map "Paintball Xtreme" longname "^5The ^2Hidden ^3Hangout" type "ffa duel" }

then you make a .pk3 of the folders, and it should work.. kinda simple.
