You have to save your map just to map_source folder for compiling for some weird reason.

Thx ill try it, but directly for map_source?? Cuz i got it under map_source then prefabs. God im stupid, why didnt i think of that lol. I work with comps a lot, i usually dont overlook silly stuff like that. Thanks!!! Ill reply back and tell if it worked

EDIT ::: Wont work, i save directly under map_source which i havent noticed but prefabs was right above my save point, but i still havent saved it in prefabs. SO, i did save it in prefabs to see if that might help, it didnt. NOt there? Why is this.. I need help plz

This is extrememly frustrating . This is where i saved under prefabs.

Question:
Hey I have done a map (quite nice for noob). I made spawns for TDM an DM and of course global intermision, I also made skybox. Now I would like to know what map has to have to work properly? And what is tools textures used for (I know ladder, mantle, water and foliage (I imaginate)? The most important of these I would like to know are:
  1. AI Trigger
  2. BSC
  3. Caulk
  4. Portal
  5. Clip
  6. Full
  7. Occluder

Tnx

There is a post in the CoD level design forum about the tool textures.

Here. It's for CoD, but CoD2 is basically the same.

Your map NEEDS to have the following to work

a skybox
a DM spawn
a global intermission.

Ofcourse, if you want to add other gametypes you'll need more things, but that's all a map REALLY needs.

But when I try to run a map (not compiled yet) it just start me the CoD2 MP. If I try to search for map- there is no map in the game. Do I have to make an IWD file with GSC and ARENA file? If I try to compile it say this: error this application failed to started because some d3d9_27.dll problem...
Even before, when it worked, there was NO compiled map in a folder. So what should I do?. C

Well.. ofcourse you'll need to compile your map to be able to play it.
The missing .dll file is a file you'll need to have.

Google for the file, download it and place it in your windows/system32 folder. Then try to compile your map again.

your map does not have to be in a .iwd file to be able for you to play/test it. If you'll ever release a map, it will have to be in a .iwd though.

OK I have upgrade DX9, but still, when I compile, I cannot find a map d3dbsp(just map file). In errors it is written: The C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 2\main\maps\mp already exist! When I delete the whole map (maps\mp) and press compile button again, it do the same, map is created again, and same error.

It's suppost to say that. Please post your entire compile log.

How to get your compile log:
Right click the black window.
Select all.
Press enter.
You can now paste it in a text file or post it here.
