Map error on home server.

Post by TomMan71 » 13 Oct 2009, 17:54

I created a TMWServ today, then I made a map for it, added it as id 1 in maps.xml, changed char_startMap,etc to the correct values and yet, when I connect I get this:

[Look at picture]

Can someone explain why?

How should I know if it works? That's what beta testers are for. I only coded it.

Does the client know about the new map file?

Make a client data directory (with maps, graphics, etc) and tell the client to use it with the -d or --data directive (--data path/to/data). You can also stop it from loading updates with the -u or --skip-update switch.

Thanks! It worked, but can you tell me, if I wanted to release the server for the public, how could I set the update server, so people don't have to download the data, and run tmw -d path?
