SOLUTION
Hello, have you solved your problem?.
I found the solution. But now another bad(wrong) thing appeared.
I will say to you what I did. I do not speak English, speak Spanish.
Sorry , the mistakes.

SOLUTION:
------------
Uninstall completely the game and "CallofDuty2ModTools-1"
( Eliminate Manually completely the call of duty 2 folder )
Before backup your works located in C:\Archivos of programa\Activision\Call of Duty 2\main\maps\mp.

Then install the game and CallofDuty2ModTools-1

.-----------------

Then you comment on me. I would like to support contact with you to solve the problems.
Now I can enter to my map, but I stay out of the box-sky. And only I am spectator.

Thank you and regards,
my email is : alfacarlos2008gmail.com

mods
make sure you delete all your absolutely unnecessary maps and mods from your cod2 files. i had this problem. sometimes it prevents you from running radiant.
Posted by Silverhawk on Fri. Aug. 10, 2007
 
i have the same problem but i dont have the spawn problem, and when his says line 2 mine says line 10, please help.
Posted by gen.brooks on Sat. Aug. 4, 2007
 
I fixed
Please disregard the previous message. I fixed the error. And as for global intermission being the only choice in the mp section. A quick reinstall of radiant will fix the problem.

For those who can't view the video with quicktime, d/load and install this player instead:

http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-windows.html

For those getting the (0xc0000135) error with the compiler, you need to go to the Microsoft Windows site and update the .NET framework. I'm using the latest .NET version 3.0.

As for "global_intermission" being the only spawn point option in "mp", i don't know about that. I have the same problem and used "Info"/"Player_start" instead. I can compile the map but am unable to join a team or run about the map as a single player. If anyone knows a fix for that, please post it here. Seems several people have the same problem.

Still takes an awful longe time do download the 3.0 with Adsl

Very weird..
Hi people, i saw the movie, i thought ok, now i am back in business.
i opened the cod tools.
i get This error:

setup could not locate a valid installation of Call of duty. click OK to Exit the installer.

What does it mean
I Just have the Legal Cod 2, not an illegal version. never had one either.
could it be that my call of duty 2 map isnt on my C: Drive?
because on the movie he says: I don't know what is gonna happen when you dont have your activison map on your C: drive.

Maybe is this one
How do I can get over this error.

I am playing Call of duty 2.
maybe it are mod tools for Call of duty.

I dont know
i just googled it
maybe i must look further

please help.

EDIT: Just downloaded the wrong tools.=) Foolish me

iwd sum/name mismatch
What does iwd sum/name mismatch mean? I did all that this tut told me to and I recieved this error when trying to run the map. I noticed the same error from someone else, but no response. Great tut if this error will go away.

How to fix the GSC file
Okay i am sure the people that haven't figure it out or are going to run into this problem with like this

when the video is running it looks like the guy add's this to his GSC file

main() {
maps\mp\_load::main();
}

okay theres only 1 problem with this at the very end where it goes " ; " replace that with " : " so it ends up like so

main() {
maps\mp\_load::main():
}

simple right? heh

Getting started
Well I'm a compleat noob when it comes to tect. stuff except for maintaining my computer. I never heard of or used any of these tools or dealt with any mods. This video was fantastic. I started with the tools and of course had probs but with all the good tutorials on here I was able to get everything fixed and get my first small map up and running. It was worth all the searching and reading that it took. After all if you supply the answers the least we can do is search for them. One thing I would like is a video on large map making. Thanks for a GREAT site to learn with.

More more more!
Hey Foyleman,
The video is perfect to learn some stuff, and how you show the things, and tell us how to do it, super!!

Can you make some more video's maybe? I think you're a very experienced map maker, and I can use your help, and i guess there are more people who can!

Thanks, Kommommer

Problem
Hey,

I can't play the movie, but I have quick time 7.0

The only thing I see is the intro screen with the title and the maker. When I click on the play button then the time is running, but there isn't anything on the screen and I don't hear anything. And then my computer crashed and I must reboot it :S:S.

What am I doing wrong?
Posted by haggis on Thu. Jul. 13, 2006
 
I'm currently downloading the video but I have to admit
that when looking at the huge amount of problems posted
I'm not entirely convinced this tutorial is all that clear.
I'm very curious.

GSC file vs TXT
pimboollie:

You need to change Windows to show file extensions. Open any folder, go to Tools -> Folder Options, select the View Tab. In Advanced Settings scroll until you find Hide Extensions of Known File Types and make sure it is unchecked. Click Apply and/or Ok. Now you can rename your file to GSC by removing .txt from the extension.

When you're using Save As from Notepad, make sure you have All Files selected in the drop down otherwise it will always add .txt to your file extension.

Thanks!

Thank you foyleman for this great "easy to learn" tutorial. With this method, we can create some very nice buildings. Now i just have to find a good tutorial for landscape and for others buildings tips. I'll take a look here, at modonline, i'm sure i'm gonna find what I want.


Thanks again!

Tutorial Video - Getting Started with CoD2

Great tutorial foyleman !! Top Notch and well done - any chance of more?-  for adding landscapes, buildings etc

Also how do you import maps from other games such as 'Spearhead' as I've already seen these working on some servers?

Compiling not working?
Ok, so ive done everything correct so far with the mapping, then i went into the compile stage, opened it, changed the file extension thing to get all the maps, put my map (mp_first) into the my maps tab. then i clicked on it and pressed compile. the cmd window pops up, but it only lasts for a couple of seconds. then i go to retrive the files, just like in the video, and nothing is in the mp maps folder... WHY?!!

I love the tutorial, but one question. When you hollow your room, it shows the words CaulK on the walls, mine show red floor and ceiling and black walls. Why? And it doesnt show things like bricks or concrete when I put thenm on.

downloading
everyone who is moaning about slow downloading will probably have a large number of problems when it comes to playing the maps, especially if you intent to run them multiplayer as hosting the map on your pc requires a fast internet speed, my pc is 4 years old, 1mbps internet and its only taking me 1 hour to get the file...so yea....good luck

Compressor problem

ARRRRGh!  An hour to download, perfect sound and no video as Quicktime says I don't have the right compressor even though I just updated it.

Oh well, nice idea but my dim brain needs the pictures, LOL.

Anyhoo;

How do you place an object somewhere else on the 2D grid.  Every building I load pops up in the center of the grid over the previous building I loaded and I can't figure out how to move it or place it elsewhere.
