You can also (more preferably) go to http://richdiesal.jedioutcastmaps.com/tutorials/ , read lesson 1 and go through to the rest of the lessons.

They will step you through getting the tools you need, installing them, and get you making basic maps.

Well I've already done this... But I've experience problem with loading the textures =(

Do u know whats wrong????????

Thanks In Advance!

What does it do exactly?

07-11-2002, 05:19 PM
Well, I dont seem to be able to load 'em. Btw, I've read some of your tut, until when I stuck with the texture, and I must say thats a hell of a good job you've done there!

However, I cannot find my textures, I've tryed the default that is automaticly written when you open it up but that didnt work.

So if you could help me I would be most happy!

Thanks In Advance!

What do you have for your Project Settings? And where is JK2 installed?

07-12-2002, 04:11 AM
Well, the first question Im not sure how to answear but I've put it all in as your tut told me to... Jk2 is installed on the path D:games1/Jk11/

Thanks In Advance!

when you specified to the map editor where the jk2 files were installed, did you do something like:




In order for the tools to find files properly you need to specify the directory where the jk2mp.exe file is.

You should be able to check the preferences in the radiant program to verify what you typed in.

Hey you...

Yeah, yeah I've installed it correctly after the tut...Im new to this, but I can do those simple things (=

Thanks, but that aint my prob

If you installed your game to D:\games1\Jk11\, go to the File Menu and select Project Settings...

Enter the following values, hit OK, and restart Radiant ---

basepath: D:\games1\Jk11\GameData\\base
mapspath: D:\games1\Jk11\GameData\\base\maps\
remotebasepath: D:\games1\Jk11\GameData\\base
entitypath: D:\games1\Jk11\GameData\\tools\SP_entities.def
texturepath: D:\games1\Jk11\GameData\\base\textures

Well diesel I already have those settings..and still dont work...

:( :( :(

It wont work no matter what...

07-12-2002, 04:42 AM
Well what exactly is the error?

07-12-2002, 04:43 AM
it is that when I pull down the Texture menu ..all it shows is "color, fog, skies, system" and no bespin what so ever......

07-12-2002, 04:46 AM
But it shows those? Hmm... are you using GTK or JK2Radiant?

Go to Edit->Preferences and make sure "Use PAK file" is checked, and it reads "PK3 files are loaded from the project's basepath"

07-12-2002, 04:55 AM
Jupp..that is correct to..... =/

Its always this way.....never shall anything work for me :'(

07-12-2002, 05:07 AM
Ahh, well last resort then...

Unzip your assets0.pk3 into base/ with full folder structure. It's about 600mb I think (and you REALLY shouldnt need to do this) but it should fix it regardless.

07-12-2002, 05:12 AM
I really dont have the space for 600 mb.... do u think a re-install would solve the prob???? Just wondering =/

07-12-2002, 05:13 AM
Could try it. :D

07-12-2002, 05:23 AM
Okey.....I'll try that tomorrow or somethin.....thanks for your time!

07-12-2002, 06:11 PM
ALRIGHT!! It worked... (=

Now Im going to go through yiur tut rich......thx for the help! :D

Have a nice day! :D
