Post by Agility »

Is there a guide somewhere to teach you how to write ArmagetronAD maps by hand?

Yup, I host one on that site.
Wow... cool dude ;)

Yup but I think I should upgrade mine to enabling global logins. That would be an easier system for using to manage maps, users and all.

Um... both look the same.

Anyway looks like the issue is within your this text:

Code: Select all

<Resource name="HR" type="aamap" version="1.0" author="Agility" category="examples">
Reminder
name is the name of the map (in your case Box). So totally, it looks like this:

Code: Select all

map_name-version.aamap.xml
So, basically the map will be located at:

Code: Select all

.../resource/Agility/examples/Box-1.0.aamap.xml
By the way, you trying to log into my website and do something? I see you online there.

And I pointed to you what you got wrong in your file.

You got

Code: Select all

name="HR"
instead of

Code: Select all

name="Box"
Fix that up and it will upload fine! ;)

Open that file in any text editor and then do "Save As" and save it as an xml file. Remember to remove the ".txt" while your at it.

Internet Explorer... anyway, right click on the web browser page and select "View Source".

Xml is a text format but is it also a CODE format. Due to this, internet explorer doesn't exactly show you what it may/not look like.

Thanks it worked and apparently for one of my wall points I had y"0" so I think that's why it didn't upload. It uploaded now though. Thanks guys for helping me :D

Well I'm glad that got sorted out :)

However, in the future I plan on having global logins so you can control the maps you make, create and put in. That should make things for handling multiple maps by the same author :)

I see so you can delete them later on if you don't want them no more, and map making is really easy once you get the basics down :D
