View Full Version : Pk3 problems

05-02-2002, 01:06 PM
I've Pk3'd a basic box map, to try to get it to load under MP, unfortunately that map will Not load and I get dropped to the create server screen

Does anyone have a good complete tutorial of how to properly PK3 a map?

I've tried paking it with pakscape, and with winzip
It Might be my arena file, since i just used notepad to create mine, but I can't see why it would be the arena file. I have all the paths correct as far as I can tell, and the arena does point to the right map..

I've tried devmapping that map - it only devmaps from within the pk3, and it works fine from there

I've got no idea what I'm doing wrong, and I've tried following whatever Quake 3 tutorials I could find, I Must be missing a step somewhere.. can anyone with experience Pk3ing files give me a step by step on exactly how they did it?

What I did:

Made map
BSP'd map
Made arena file and TGA screenshot of my map
put each in appropriate directories

Ran JK2
entered MP mode
Found map in map listing
Attempted to run map - map did not even begin to load
returned to start screen for MP mode

Note: I've tried changing the name of the arena file to match the pk3 name, and to something else - with no effect

As far as I can tell the map itself is built properly too... any ideas?
