Problems Adding Maps To Local Game

Post by Iewauh »

Hi There!

Ok, I play in a racing server and I would like to add the server maps to my local game, so I can practice when I don't get Internet signal... So, I copy them from the resources>automatic folder into my resources>included folders and set the configuration at the settings.cfg and autoexec.cfg files, but everytime i want to play, the arena is just the same as if the files were default! D: (I check the files and they're just the same as i saved them)..Can someone help me?

Thanks! ^^

You don't need to copy the files to the included folder. All you need to do is add the path the the map to your autoexec.cfg using the MAP_FILE command. For example:

MAP_FILE turtle/adventure/chasm_f-0.0.2.aamap.xml

More information is here on the wiki.

There's no automatic rotation in local games, so you would have to do it manually. Can you post the contents of your autoexec.cfg so we can look at it? Maybe we can figure out why it didn't work.

Weird. So, you don't get an error message, but the map doesn't load? Do the other settings load? What text editor do you use to make your autoexec.cfg? I only ask because of the strange line breaks in your post. Maybe it has something to do with word-wrapping adding returns???

I'm not sure of something else is writing over your settings after you start a local game. One option is to call up the settings again after you start a local game by typing "INCLUDE autoexec.cfg" into your console.

Yeah, that a policy of AoT servers. It helps keep the effects of spam to a minimum. Just open your autoexec.cfg and set the following to zero:

Code: Select all

FILTER_COLOR_NAMES 1
FILTER_COLOR_STRINGS 1
FILTER_COLOR_TEAM 1
