mapping forum..thread standards EVERYONE READ
ok i've notice that in many threads people ask question concerning their map and get answear back that don't work. Why! Because many times ppl give answears for single player maps when the person is making a multiplayer map so a day can be wasted trying and testing info that won't work because the ppl arn't sure what map the other person is making. SO i propose that before each thread's question theauthor should put this little tag (or something like it)

Map type1
Map type2
program being used
any other info

here's an example.

here's a screenie
i can't get my bottons to dance

granted this might be a bit of work but the tpe of map and program should really be put in if lazy you could just do this


my bottons are purple

How's about comming up with a GAMMA standard for making maps.....

Everyone has different settings they use in JO as well as for their monitors what's dark to one, may be too bright for another.

Anyone remember IDGamma? the old gamma standard for Quake 1?

I'd LOVE to see that.

VIO 06-04-2002 09:14 PM

ooo great idea!

Xcom 06-04-2002 09:53 PM

I support this idea.

VIO 06-04-2002 09:56 PM

we should get an admin to sticky it

VIO 06-06-2002 10:21 AM

BUMP come ppl read this it would be vry helpful if everyone did it

alienprotein 06-06-2002 10:55 AM

I would like to know the limitations of each. MP, and SP?

Once we know what we can do in one, and not the other. Then we can figure out how to make a standard for each.

Maybe Start separate threads for each?

VIO 06-06-2002 07:19 PM

knowing the differences in the maps isn't wat were saying you should put what type of map at the top of your post so people know what what of thing they should tell the other person. im not sure were you can find a list of the differences though.
keep this thread alive!!!!

Redvan 06-19-2002 08:07 AM

great idea

VIO 06-19-2002 08:17 AM

im gald you agree so please use it in your threads i try to

atinymonkey 06-22-2002 12:55 AM

IDGamma existed to balance the game on multiple platforms. That is to say, PC and Mac users. It will probably only be utilsed again if the game has another release over muliple platforms and is created for Multiplayer (like Quake 3 might be).

Nice idea though. Say it on enough threads and perhaps developers will notice.

emorog 06-22-2002 08:06 AM

that's why there's a gamma slider in the menu! use it!

"Adjust the brightness slider until the number 6 can barely be seen."

the_Beast 06-28-2002 04:05 AM

some bumpage

VIO 06-28-2002 04:06 AM

keep this thread aLLLIVEEE

remeber ppl if you support it use it

Grets Sirob 06-28-2002 05:37 AM

I agree, and I do use it.

Maybe this should be a sticky?

That way people would not have to bump it...

:trooper: Hey, you there!

VIO 06-28-2002 05:51 AM

sticky it should be but we need an admin for that

It's sticky!


:sithm: You will die, painfully.

VIO 06-29-2002 07:16 AM

WOOHOO great now maybe people will use this, then again :p

angelDP 06-30-2002 11:58 AM

If only people read/used things like this *rolls eyes*

There should be an admishions test for the mapping forum LOL

"You want to post about a party you were jsut at, so you should"

A: Find a random post to put it in as a reply.
B: Not post it.
C: Make a new topic about it, including large bmp's of the party.
D: Send a fax to

If you have trouble making glass, you should:

A: Make a coherent post about your problem, following guidlines listed in VIO's sticky thread,after you have have signed a release form stating you have read and memorized the rules.
C: Bump Cmdr. Antilles WIP thread, asking the intellignet board members there for help.
D: Go to a pottery class and learn the correct method.

*grin* I have such great ideas...

fabrikashon 07-12-2002 05:10 PM

There is a gamma standard, go into the game - in options, theres an 'adjust the brightness till the 6 is barely visible'. No matter what brightness your monitor is at, if you can't see the 6, you can't see the 6 so its an all round thing.

Multiplayer maps
Sometimes I try to play multiplayer on certain maps (like jedicouncilfloortria) or something like that, and I don't have the map. Where can I get these maps?

teutonicknight 08-13-2002 03:07 PM


has many popular maps.

teutonicknight 08-22-2002 08:22 PM

I just thought of another place:

:o :D

h2opolo182 09-03-2002 01:12 AM

hey all,
i jus thought i'd support this thread by utilizing the method it suggests, here goes.

i wanna make a sp ladder, basically the same as the original ladder, just in the Carbonite Crushing Chamber by Vitigis. The original map is a duel. i want 2 know how i can convert it 2 single player. also, i can't even open the map in jkIIradiant. could someone tell me how? i think after i've taken care of those 2 probs, i can handle the rest....i hope. it isn't that hard 2 place the npc spawners is it? thanx

legameboy 11-03-2002 03:17 PM

i think the idea is great so there isnt as much 'clutter' to go through to find things
