@Sprony Since you made the former thread read only...

Can't really do any of this on mapcore if we can't do new threads. Might want to change the wording and remove mapcore.

I didn't spot that, good find! Thank you.

Listen guys, if you all really want to able to start your own threads, I can change it. Like this if you want it or ignore it. Depending on the outcome I'll either reword it or open up the forum. Let democracy be heard :)

I would prefer documenting the work on here if possible- one central place where I know the rules and the peoples is always preferred.

 I understand if there's obligations to spread stuff between here/game banana and the official forums though.

I don't get doi hammer to work.

Whenever i try to compile a map it tries to run insurgency?

And when it runs insurgency it says I miss a manifest game sound file. 

Please help.

 

Thanks

Tick 'don't run game after compiling' on the compile menu, open the game yourself and directly load the map in the DoI console. "map [mapname]"

It says:

 

Running command:

"D:\Engines\Steam\steamapps\common\dayofinfamy\insurgency.exe" -dev -game

"D:\Engines\Steam\steamapps\common\dayofinfamy\doi" +map "doi_heidel" +sv_lan 1

Any reason why?

Open "Steam\steamapps\common\dayofinfamy\doi\gameinfo.txt"

 

And change SteamAppId to 447820

And it's done. :)

Is there any way to change the way control points are set up? I'm porting my remake of dod_cherbourg, not for the contest but any potential map ideas I have might run into the same problem. I'm using liberation mode, and the default cap time (feels around about 30 seconds) is far too long for some of the points, and there's also no way I can find of forcing a minimum number of players for an objective.

Ok. I don't really know what is causing the problem but its gone now...

 

It does this when you open the model viewer while the current window is in maximised mode. Resize to the 4-window view and it should work. Sometimes it will still do it the first time you try to open it again, just close the model viewer and re-open it. It's a really annoying bug but that's definitely the cause.

Yes ! I thought the fix was to open entity properties by right-click on 2d - way but this is the same you are talking about . Anyway thanks :)
