when i download a prefab from a mapping website i extract it to a folder i named prefabs and put it in my main when i view the file through windows it shows the prefabs (5 elivator types) but when i go to edit>load prefab in gtk radiant there not in the file (or there invisible) cause when i go to properties in the file it says all 5 are there but there not. same happens when i try to find my .bsp of my map so i can distribute it i cfant find it through gtk radiants pk3man but its in my main\maps when i loook for it through windows. WTF!!!! i cant use prefabs or distribute my map WHERE DID THE FILES GO??!!
Your .bsp is created when you compile your map. If there are map errors in your map then this file more often than not will not be created. It will always be found in you maps folder. So, if there are map errors when you compile then please post them so that you can get some help solving the problem. Prefabs: there just a saved order of brushes or a prebuilt thing using the textures that came with RTCW. There is no reason why they should not load. I have come to find that some prefabs are messed up or missing textures so I don't use them myself. I do make my own prefabs to save time. you can also load the offical maps and save the torches, gun racks, ect to save time making them and placeing them in you own map. Remember some prefabs are submitted by people that have no idea what there doing. If you have a site location and tell us what prefab your trying to use we can download it and see if we can try to get it to work. fun mapping.
no i know what they are and i also know that your bsp is created after u compile your map believe me i try as hard as i can on my opwn before i ask for help. i also compile my map all the time to chek for leaks and see the map in game.
its a problem with radiant when i try to find my map (biohazard) through c:programfiles\returntocastlewolfenstein\maps or \main i can find it easily but when i try to find it through pk3man in radiant so i can distribute it it doesnt show up and when i go to c my prefabs ive dl from mapping sites through c:programfiles\returntocastlewolfenstein\prefabs they are all there but when i view them through radiant (edit>load prefab) its not there the file is but the prefabs are invisible i looked at the properties of the folder it said 8 files where in the prefabs folder but i couldnt see them nor could i select them so i looked in other folders like main and maps same thing there there but there not. i cant c them thrugh radiant so haveing them is n help. sorry so long
