Many of you know I'm working on a CoD4 Campaign.
I will possibly manage to finish it myself but then I'll have to do a second episode.
So for that Episode I will really need some help. Is there any casual mapper who knows a little bit more than the basics or even better advanced mapper who has cod4 and he is interested to work on such a project in the future?
If you don't know CoD4 Rooftops Mappack here's all you need to know.

Reply to this topic only if you are interested on participating on the second episode. Then add me on steam (eimaitrelooos or SPi) if you want to keep close contact with to get all info you like for my plans and what i'd like you to do when the time is right.
Cheers.

Woah, I played your rooftops level demo.

It is AMAZING.

1.- It has great use of space and level flow. It is pretty straight forward. Great use of the wires on the Y section, avoiding confusion on the player.
2.- Great use of music, thematically, kept things always on edge.
3.- The rooftop fight is intense, and there are more than adequate amounts of cover along the fight.


The only suggestions I have is creating a touch trigger or something to prompt you to return to the mission area instead of just losing when you get off path, and then losing if you just get too far.

Other than that, it is perfect! Great pacing!
It should be a real COD level.

By the way, I am working on a level for myself, I was wondering if you could help me with two things I have not been able to figure out.

How do I create my own "Intro screen". Like:
Mission
Soldier name
Place
Additional Info.

I know it has to do with the *.str file, but I can't figure out how to display it.

And also, those big texts you have at the end, how can I script them.

Good to have a reply.

Thanks for your comment. I will help you out. Your suggestion is taken into consideration and will possibly be applied since it's not that hard to do it :)

Now about your thing. I guess you have a basic script for your map.
And I will also guess that you know how to call functions.

New mappers always get mad on getting this to work.
Same did I.

Okay so first things first.
After the maps\_load::main();
call a new thread like this:

Code:
thread introscreen();


then after main() function ends
write this:


Code:
introscreen()
{
	level.player freezecontrols( true);
	level.player disableweapons();	

	lines = [];
	lines[ lines.size ] = &"YOURMAP_INTROSCREEN_LINE_1";
	lines[ lines.size ] = &"YOURMAP_INTROSCREEN_LINE_2";
	lines[ lines.size ] = &"YOURMAP_INTROSCREEN_LINE_3";
	lines[ lines.size ] = &"YOURMAP_INTROSCREEN_LINE_4";
	lines[ lines.size ] = &"YOURMAP_INTROSCREEN_LINE_5";
	fade_time = ( 2 );
	time = ( 7 );
	maps\_introscreen::introscreen_feed_lines( lines );
	level.player freezecontrols( false );
	level.player enableweapons();
	level notify("introscreen_complete");
}


NOTE: You will have to replace the YOURMAP with the exact name of your map with capital letters so if your map is named "Bunker"
change every line this way:
Code:
lines[ lines.size ] = &"BUNKER_INTROSCREEN_LINE_1";


Now, you say you know str editing but I will note it again just in case you missed something.

in your cod4/raw/english/localizedstrings
there should be a file named exactly as your map with .str extension
if your map name is bunker again the file should be
bunker.str
Opening it with notepad or any text editor will do.
in the file you must add these stuff to make it work.

Code:
VERSION             "1"
CONFIG              "F:\projects\mk\bin\StringEd\StringEd.cfg"
FILENOTES           ""

REFERENCE           INTROSCREEN_LINE_1
LANG_ENGLISH		"Title"

REFERENCE           INTROSCREEN_LINE_2
LANG_ENGLISH		"Player role"

REFERENCE           INTROSCREEN_LINE_3
LANG_ENGLISH		"Date"

REFERENCE           INTROSCREEN_LINE_4
LANG_ENGLISH		"Place"

REFERENCE           INTROSCREEN_LINE_5
LANG_ENGLISH		"Team/Faction"

 
ENDMARKER


You can edit them any way you want.
Do those changes build fast file of your map and launch it.
Should work fine :)

Man, I was so close! I have my localize strings ready. I was just missing the introscreen thread function. Thank you so much.


After getting more experience with this, I would gladly accept to help you in your maps.
