For music, use the key 'music' in worldspawn.

For the stairs, I'm not sure how you mean, but try to make a brush (space) brush.

For the textures, there is a folder for them in pakscape.

Deselect everything, press N, scroll down to Worldspawn, click on it and enter the key music and a value which is the path to the music file you want to play like "music/yavin_final/yavfinal_explore".

Make your texture in a program like paint shop pro or photoshop. the dimensions have to be powers of 2 i.e 256x256, 512x512, 128x256 etc. Save the texture as a jpg. In your JK2/Gamedata directory, create a folder with the same name as your map. in that folder create another folder called textures. in that folder create another one called customtextures. Put your texture in there, thus:

C:\games\jk2\gamedata\mymap\textures\customtexture s\custom1.jpg

for example.

Put all the files for your map in the "mymap" directory....maps in "mymap\maps" scripts in "mymap\scripts" etc....then, when you're ready to publish it, put all these folders into a PK3 using winzip....select them all, right click, add to zip, call the zip "mymap.pk3", set compression to normal, and voila. Ready to go.

For doors use the speed key with a value of your taste. For elevator search the forums. There are so many threads...
