View Full Version : Loading a custom map with New Game option in menu

12-03-2002, 06:29 PM
I've got the whole map as part of a mod you have to load, but I'd like to set it up so that if you go to New Game once you've loaded the mod then it loads up the custom map I'm putting together, anyone know how?

Read the part about ARENA files for SP

If you mean to automatically load the map when you hit "New Game" or if you're talking about loading a map for SP, well ask someone else, lol, I only do MP maps

Sorry if i didnt help you...I tried :-D

Thanks for trying to help :) I did mean SP, guess I didn't make that very clear.

Well, that's not too bad. Rather than explaining it myself (I don't deserve any credit for this particular issue) I suggest you download some of the recent mods, or perhaps even the old Tavion one. Then unzip the .pk3 of one of those mods, and study the custom menu items. All you need is a little bit of editing of a menu text file, and an additional text file in the root that will launch you map with the map mymapname -command, when you point at it from your custom menu. See for yourself.

And you must do the menu editing anyway, if you are to have any custom items or text in the menu screens.
