How can I run a local cod2 server to test out a skin before I send it off to our main server and make our server guy upload it like 25 times?

I know how to run the server, the question is getting a mod/skin on it.

Remove custom mods from your main, have only stock files in it. Then, add your .iwd to the main folder and start new server

So, I remove everything so its stock in Call of Duty 2/main then add my .iwd in. Does it need a specific name or can it be anything? Do I need anything else inside my .iwd besides the one skin I'm trying to change? The server will just pick it up and go?

yup just do what hyper said remove all custom mods keep stock only put ur .iwd and it should automaticly read it just go ingame and do /developer 1, /devmap mp_mapname and it will load ur skins, developer 1 will check for any errors ur mod may have and put the errors in console so u can check it and fix it.

Ok, my main looks like this....



my iwd is like this



I launch cod2mp, type in devmap mp_trainstation and the skins don't work. I got them to work by forcing them into the stock .iwds and after I was done replacing them with stock backups but this way won't work.

Yea, I backed them up lol. I put them back in and it was fine. I know they are the right files because they worked but ONLY if i replaced the stock files. I can't get the mod to work. I'm trying to make a black guy, I'm pretty confident it worked.






I just would rather host a server or use devmap to test a skin instead of replacing backing up stock files, putting the modded ones in, then replacing them when I'm done.

You need to prefix the IWD file with zz_. Example;

zz_modmain.iwd
