To Upload A New Map Version!

Postby IceDreamer » 05 May 2014, 22:03

Why is this so hard to come by? I just had to fix a bunch of maps where this wasn't working properly.

'X' is your version number

Step 1: Open FOLDERNAME
Step 2: Go to MAPNAME_scenario.lua
Step 3: Change the following...

Code: Select all
map = '/maps/FOLDERNAME/MAPNAME.scmap',
save = '/maps/FOLDERNAME/MAPNAME_save.lua',
script = '/maps/FOLDERNAME/MAPNAME_script.lua',


To...

Code: Select all
map = '/maps/FOLDERNAME/MAPNAME.scmap',
map_version = X,
save = '/maps/FOLDERNAME/MAPNAME_save.lua',
script = '/maps/FOLDERNAME/MAPNAME_script.lua',


If anyone knows that I've missed something, shout, but from my tests this should give a foolproof updated map with the same name as previously.

PLEASE CAN SOMEONE STICKY THIS!

If you were using custom textures, you have to show editor path to textures in newly renamed folder as well, otherwise you will end up with black screen.

This work ?
Just need change the map_version variable but with '000X', not 'X' only for a new version.

Exemple with v4
Code: Select all
map_version = 0004, //please follow the format with 4 digits
save = '/maps/FOLDERNAME.v'.map_version.'/MAPNAME_save.lua',
map = '/maps/FOLDERNAME.v'.map_version.'/MAPNAME.scmap',
script = '/maps/FOLDERNAME.v'.map_version.'/MAPNAME_script.lua',
