OMG simple problem killing me

ugh...we're getting to that point on our map that I have been tasked with the extrememly simple job of creating the little text file that details the scenario of the map (the one you see when you log in).

I've created it, named it dod_mymapname_b2.txt, placed it in the same folder as the BSP (the maps folder) and for the life of me cannot get it to appear when I log in!! ARGH!

i may be wrong, but isnt it supposed to be in the root dod folder?

OMG I am a bonehead. I had ULed the txt file to the server and 'assumed' it would force download it to the client side. It didn't do this and therefore I had nothing on my screen when I logged in. I added a .res file with the txt listed and now it's working. DOH!

The map description .txt should be in the same folder as your .bsp (which is dod\maps) as well as your detail textures .txt

Any .wad files or .cfg files for the map should be in the dod root folder.
