SOLVED - Map not loading in MAP

Postby Deadman-Inc » 16.01.2012, 02:16

I made a multiplayer map with 4 Spawnpoints, a spectator point and the minimap thing. I'm pretty much done with it and would like to try it in game. However I can not access this map, not via console nor the "Create Game" Explorer.

At first I was able to see it's name in the explorer under Instant Action, now even that is gone.

I made another map real quick, using the same steps I've used on my first map and it works. So obviously I must at least know what I'm supposed to do.

At this point I'm really lost and don't know what else to try or do, as I have tried just about anything I could think of.

Could someone please download the map and give it a try ? I've attached the level folder. Get it to work in Multiplayer. Then either tell me what I did wrong or send me back the working files.

Please I need help with this, I'm tired of searching and reading new topics, spent just about the last 3 days doing that. X(

Nah didn't help, as I said, I got other custom maps to work so its probably not my MetaData. Can someone please download the map and take a look ?

Thanks

from my past levels MP.. you might have an unauthorized entity in the level..
youve made other maps so maybe you forgot?

I'm on the world's worst internet connection right now so I can't download it, but judging by the filename you've got a space in your level name. This isn't recommended.

I was thinking of spaces in the file name too. Therefore I changed it. The level folder still has two names "Banana Field" I renamed the level itself to Banana.cry
Not sure if that is correct.

It is possible that I have unauthorized items in the level. Is there a list or something so I can make sure ?
I know AI isn't allowed in Multiplayer, which I'm not using. It might be the weapons. I don't know if they are multiplayer specific or if they even respawn. How am I supposed to drop them into the level ? I think I just went through Entity - Weapons or something, perhaps not the correct way.

The rest is just standard things, building, vegetation, furniture.

Anyway, still hoping someone more knowledgeable than me could take a look.

Oh by the way, is there a game log or something like this, where I could possibly look for answers ?

The folder name can't have spaces it in. The game loads the level.pak file, not the .cry file (Unlike the editor).

I fixed that too by now. I am now able to load the map through the console as a singleplayer map. The weird thing is it just doesn't even show up in the Create Game explorer. It used to. :unsure:

Right now I'm replacing all the weapons, I drag and drop them straight from the Database view while having Respawn checked. Maybe that's why ?

Other than that I can't think of much. I do have a few exploding items and destructible buildings in the map, is that an issue with Multiplayer ?

Thanks for your input!

WOW! Ok now I'm at a loss. Its actually working fine now!
I got frustrated and just did the Metadata again and changed all the guns to respawn and made them unique. Now its working.
Either some small mistake in the Metadata I overlooked or god knows what.

Anyway, thank you guys so much for your help! Its awesome to see there's still people out there keeping Sandbox 2 alive!
See you on the servers!
