Well my woe for this week is my map won't show up in the map list when i go to start a lan game, yes i've checked its in the right folder etc and all the model, sounds, sprites are in their right places too. I know the map compiled fine aswell which makes this all the more annoying.
Anyone have any idea what causes this problem? I did notice that in the map properties section (where you tell the map what sky etc to use) that it was all fubar, would this be the cause or not?

Any help would be nice thanks :)

you're probably lacking an info_doddetect

Did you happen to rename it?, make sure it has a .bsp extension on the end or the game wont detect it.

I think he already fixed his problem....but just in case, Cole reminded me of another thing...sometimes your map name can actually get too long and it causes problems. I'm not sure what the exact limit is, but this happened to me one time and it was really frustrating.

You don't need an info dod detect for a map to work, Most of my maps never have it so its not that.

The map name is short and I haven't changed it at all.

I've left the map for the time being but i'll sort it out again this week hopefully :)
