A master checklist
Call of Duty 4 : CoD4 MP Mapping
Well, we're already piecing stuff together. Personally, I'm about ready to resurrect my tutorial map project using CamStudio or FRAPS. I can get users as far as setting up Radiant, doing basic and advanced stuff in the map, supplemental files, and compi... [more]

How do you make the terain to fit around this ??
Call of Duty 4 : CoD4 MP Mapping
The terrain doesn't have to fit exactly on the lines of the well. I would make four sections of terrain, each one taking up a quadrant of the well. Just trim away sections of terrain patches that are sticking into the well, and then adjust the remaining... [more]

Call of Duty 4 : CoD4 MP Mapping
I intend to keep this afloat long enough for us to compile something worth placing in the tutorial section or may even its own page. It will, however, require the combined efforts of everyone here to come up with a clean, straight-shot way to doing a map... [more]

Call of Duty 4 : CoD4 MP Mapping
How is this different than what I said? Putting the images folder into a compressed folder (zip) is the same, isn't it? Or are you saying to make a folder called mp_mapname, zip it to an archive called mp_mapname.zip, and rename the zip folder to .iwd?... [more]

I just tried what you suggested, but it doesn't work. Could you go into a little more detail? Which customMaps folder? The one in players\profiles\*name*\mods or the one in Mods? I still get the error. edited on Mar. 16, 2008 07:08 pm by Saureco... [more]

Call of Duty 4 : CoD4 MP Mapping
An .iwi file is an image file that is useable by the COD4 engine. You can make an .iwi file by running the Assets Manager. You will first have to make a .tga image file for conversion. If this is for the minimap image, look here. From what I underst... [more]

Call of Duty 4 : CoD4 MP Mapping
Quick update: OK, I found something important. The .tga file I used to create the compass image file was originally called compass_mp_comm_station; I was missing map in the file name. But all the saved files for materials, material_properties, and im... [more]

Error in asset converter

I'm a little confused. Images are converted to an .iwi (Infinity Ward Image) file. Packaged folders are saved as an .iwd (Infinity Ward Directory) file. All the files in raw\images are .iwi files. So how can I test my map to see if my minimap is worki... [more]
