How to place a usable machinegun?
Call of Duty 4 : CoD4 MP Mapping
Daezberry has it right but for the "spawnflags" entry. That needs to be "0". In the Entity box above the entries you will see that a value of "1" means that it already exists. Uncheck the box and it should revert to zero. Save and compile and it will work... [more]

CoD2 Radiant 4 panel screen
Call of Duty 2 : CoD2 MP Mapping
I think that may be a leftover from some other version that they did not take out. Like the non-working buttons. Radiant works fine for me but when I tried to use that 4 panel view it crashed bigtime! It was when I was trying to do the 3d clipper tute tha... [more]

Cliffs your opinion
Call of Duty 2 : CoD2 MP Mapping
I have a plateau in my map that had sheer cliffs with a rock texture applied. During beta testing people complained about the lack of realism. So I tried to edit them for some features. I ended up converting them from curve patches to terrain patches. I w... [more]

Call of Duty 2 : CoD2 MP Mapping
I feel your pain! I have made a very large map and had some of the same problems. You don't appear to have any portal leaks so thats cool. The leaf with too many portals is not good. I would as a start go back and convert EVERYTHING you can into detail br... [more]

converting .iwd problem
Call of Duty 2 : CoD2 MP Mapping
It all needs to match bud. The .bsp was compiled under one name and the .iwd has a different name. Either that or there was a compile error and the .bsp was not generated. Check your .gsc and other text files to make sure they all call for the same target... [more]

A few questions on compiling
Call of Duty 2 : CoD2 MP Mapping
Those are really high numbers from what I have seen. I to am going through the same types of problems on my first map. What I did based on a post here was to divide the map into four sections with massive portal brushes. This went a long way towards bring... [more]

Terrain Patch Textures gone wrong.
Call of Duty 2 : CoD2 MP Mapping
You can scope out these patch problems in the editor by hitting "shift L" to show the light map layout. Areas that appear inconsistent with the pattern are potential black holes in final render. Check to make sure they do not overlap other patches. Most t... [more]

water
Call of Duty 2 : CoD2 MP Mapping
You can vary the appearance of your water by hitting the "S" key for surface inspector and clicking on "Fit" or "Natural" or a combination of the two. Just texturing will give one look while fit will give you a larger ripple look as the texture is more st... [more]

portaling?
Call of Duty : CoD Mapping
Do a search for vis or visdata in the forums. Somewhere there is an excellent tutorial with photo's of how portals work and the needed format. It really made things clear to me. I am new to mapping but since I looked at it I have not had any portaling err... [more]

problem
Call of Duty : CoDUO Mapping
Check to make sure you are not using any "Blend" textures and that the brushes are not overlapping other brushes. That can cause some to disappear in game. Also get rid of any custom maps or mods in your folder as a lot of those textures will not show up ... [more]

Making roofs
Call of Duty 2 : CoD2 MP Mapping
As an adder to med's post which is good I cut the brushes along the line of the walls and seperate the overhang. Then you can texture the edges and underside to provide the look of an actual soffit and fascia as on a real building. Alt... [more]

World and Modeling Lighting Compile Error
Call of Duty : CoDUO Mapping
I have never used that compiler but if it has the feature try bumping your samplescale on your lighting. I had a similar problem in CoD2 and it turned out that the lighting block was just too big to compile. Youll get lower definition on shadows and such ... [more]

Just a small issue
Call of Duty 2 : CoD2 MP Mapping
I would convert the road texture to match the terrain. Later when you are tweakin you'll be glad you did. Mismatched vertices can drive you nuts for alignment issues. Vertice alignment should be paramount when working with terrain and curve textures. The ... [more]

Several texture problems
Call of Duty 2 : CoD2 MP Mapping
I have found that sometimes all you need to do is click on the suspect brush and hit Backspace. Other times you need to re-create the brush. You can find the locations by going into Misc/Find Brush. edited on Oct. 6, 2006 12:59 am by Altheim... [more]
