Hello there guys.

I wonder some questions.

I've made an aim_map.. but there are several files like .p1 .p2 .p3 .wic and so on.. but if i want anyone to test the map, can they test it if i just send the .bsp and .res file?

And also, how do i imbead (spelling?) an .wad file into the .bsp file so they don't need to get, couln't open aim_skanska.wad, except if i send it to them.

Thanks!

You should be able to just send the .bsp

If you've got .wad files that they need also, the best thing would be for you to set up a quick server and then when they connect it will download all the necessary files for them to play it.

All they need to run your map is the bsp and any wads that do not come with Counter Strike. Every other file, save for the log and .err file, is used by the compiler to make the bsp so essentially the bsp contains all your files [except for the wad].

You can embed your wads into your .bsp by adding -nowadtextures in your hlcsg line (if you're compiling using a batch file). Like this:
batch code
hlcsg -nowadtextures thisismymapname

You can also use the flag
batch code
-wadinclude wadname
instead to embed only a specific wad.
...and that's the bottom line because Mate de Vita said so.

So you're saying that I have to wait so painfully long to download wads to play maps, because some person couldn't include that!?

Errr... yeah, pretty much. But the .bsp will naturally be larger if you choose to embed the wads than it would be without them.

Oh so we're talking roughly the same download time.

Okay, thanks guys... but is there anyway to embed the .wad file if you do not run the .BAT compiler from superjer? I just configure calce , build my map and pressing f9, and it works excellent!

Not necessarily. The -wadinclude and -nowadtextures options only include the textures you actually used in the map.

Thank you, I was thinking about it. I was going to ask whether or not it included unused textures, because then it would be more efficient to use wally to combine only the textures I used. But two steps ahead of me...

Don't worry, I've been doing this for a long time.

Also, most of the Hammer/compile stuff is NOT smart enough to remove unneeded things and automatically avoid silly problems.

So what is the difference between
batch code
-wadinclude
and
batch code
-nowadtextures
?

Also is there....ahh I'll Google it.

-wadinclude includes a single* wad file. -nowadtextures ("no wad textures") includes all the wad files.

*Or multiple since it does partial matching
