Can start my map from game lobby


Recommended Posts



I have spent quite a lot of time making a complex simpsons house and made a small arena aswell.

now the small arena is finished and after compiling it works, but if i want to play it with a friend this map only shows up under all maps.


so i checked the armsrace box when i uploaded the map, but if i choose armsrace in the map selection menu i cant choose my map.


so somehow the gametype isnt supported although i did use the info_armsrace:CT/T startpoints




Hopefully someone can help me find the error

When adding the map to the workshop you can select in which categories the map belongs in (classic, deathmatch, custom ETC).

I don't exactly remember, but you pick all the gamemodes you want your map to work with from there.


You can still do this in the workshop.

Click Play with friends, then click game settings and on upper tab click Workshop.

There should be a list of workshop maps. Make sure you are subscribed to your own map.

Then click on it and a tab should appear with selection of gamemodes.


From there you can just invite your friends.

the map is only supposed to support armsrace and tdm. i put 5 normal spawns per team and 10 arms race spawns per team. also there is a info player start. is anything else missing? could maybe someone download the map and take a look at it? it is a very simple map i was playing around with ....

map yourmapname

Put this in the console if you want to test your map alone.


If you want to play your map with friends do the following:

-Create a lobby, invite your friends

-Select a random Workshop map

-Make the lobby private

-Start the game(local server is being created)

-Wait until everybody of your friends joined the server and type "map yourmapname" in the console. The map should load for everybody now.
