I'd like to suggest NOT using undo, copy, or paste (credit goes to Stryder). This will give you "Duplicate Planes" errors in your compiling. If you mess up, start that brush from scratch even if it might be a pain!!

Save save save your map, and save often. Use a new file name each time, so that you automatically leave a trail of working maps if something should go horribly wrong.

I sequentially increment my maps, so that figuring out my most recent version just requires looking at the highest numbered file.

e.g.;

mp_yourmapname1
mp_yourmapname2
mp_yourmapname3

etc... etc...

If you check 'snapshots' in the preferences, it will do exactly as you do, but automatically.

It saves sequential map back ups to

\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 2\map_source\snapshots

a map HAS to have:

1 DM spawn
1 global_intermission
a sealed box around your map (normally this would be your skybox)

the rest is ALL optional but most maps have the following as wel:

other gametype spawnpoints and other things (like flags for ctf)
worldspawn settings (for lighting of your map)

Welcome to the forum.

Did you make a .gsc file for your map? If not, open notepad, paste the following in

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

the save as yourmapname.gsc

place it in your maps/mp folder, alongside your map .d3dbsp file.
Run CoD again and it should work.

Edit: if that doesn't fix it, go to the 'create new server' menu and set pure to off or no (not sure which is used).

Hi, guys. I'm having a big problem. All my textures are red or black. No concrete, wood or anything else. Just dark red an black. I haven't changed anything. Everything is on defaults.

Edit: Ok, I found what the problem is. Guess my shitty V-Card is screwing me again. Well, I can go and try to make some CS 1.6 maps.

First of all, hi everybody [wave]. It's my first post here.

Helpful hints in general! Should I refrain completely from using undo, redo, copy, paste functions?... I'm used to using them from other design programs hehee...

Thanks. Babye.

PD: Building my first serious mapping project atm for the CoD series (CoD2), in the spanish civil war mod.

Do NOT use windows shortcuts in Radiant. It will work often, but often it will do strange things. you're better of remaking or reshaping a brush if you make an error.

you can copy stuff in Radiant with the spacebar.
