But now at least if you right click and select Save Target As... it can be downloaded. That didn't even work the first time. I'll take a look at the map for ya and get back to ya.

The reason why your map wouldn't load was because the BSP file in the PK3 had a different file name then the PK3 file name. These need to match.

Also, in your ARENA file, don't use Caps. Keep your names and descriptions in all lowercase. The game will just leave it blank if you use a capital letter.


One note on the map itself though. If you are just using this to test the editor out and such, that it okay but if you plan on building onto this to make a map for release, I HIGHLY recommend that you widen the pathways in there. You should always make your narrowest path at least the width of two players. (you can judge this by placing a spawn point as a guide to see how wide the area is) Otherwise, when people are playing they'll constantly be in each other's way and it becomes very annoying quickly.

But keep at it, you'll find that if you try one thing at a time, and then as you feel comfortable with that, then try something new, you'll really begin to start making some cool stuff. Just don't try to learn it all at once, that'll just give you a headache. :wink:

Good luck.
