Tutorial: Arena Files

Post by Marshall » January 21st, 2008, 7:04 am


You need to add the following, into your .IWD folder.

Folder called mp

in mp create a text file named the same as your map. (i.e mp_testmap.txt)

Add the following:

Code: Select all

	map			"mp_testmap"
	longname	"The Test Map"
	gametype	"dm sd"
map: the name of your bsp file (i.e mp_testmap)

longname: the preferred name (i.e The map name that shows in the list and loading the map)

gametype: the available spawns you have in your map / gametypes


then save_as the file "mp_testmap.arena"

So basically now you have a folder called mp, with a file called mp_testmap.arena..

..add them to a new .iwd file. (winRAR, right click the mp folder, and click add to archive. Select .ZIP, then rename the output file to mp_testmap.iwd)

Place the .iwd file in with your .ff files.. (i.e the fs_game folder)
