Testing Maps

Post by L0rd » 19 Aug 2007, 18:29

Hello,

Is it no longer possible to test ones own map on the client by placing it in the "maps" folder?

Have i missed something somewhere because there are no maps at all in this folder and i cant find an update folder either as the map editing tutorial suggests.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

If you are using windows the update map is located here:
C:\Documents and Settings\Username\.tmw\updates
I dont know for linux because I dont use it.

Thank you. I had an idea for a map to add to the cave snake area and i needed to test it.

An abondoned arena, although im just familiarising myself with map making - its not a serious map yet...

There are two methods of testing maps. Method one is following this guide:

Method two is putting the map into a custom pack. Create a folder "customdata" in your userdirectorys subdirectory .tmw and place a zip file in it with a folder "maps" (name doesn't matter). Put your map into this folder in the zip and name it like the map you want to replace.
