When you're sure you have it right, save the file and close Notepad. Then double click on the file 'mapname.bat' to run it. Lot's of confusing stuff will show up in a command window as ZHLT compiles your map. When it is done you will see (at the bottom):

You don't run the text file, you run a batch file. It should explain it all... it involves opening the Windows terminal which canbe accessed by hitting Start->Run and typing "cmd.exe". The instructions should be clear from there.

Okay when you make a new .txt file make sure you rename the last part, the .txt. part, to .bat
For example

mapname.txt = mapname.bat

yeah but sometimes renaming just changes the name not the file, so you can just click "save as" on the .txt file and choose all file types and rename it as .bat

Open up the text-file, then: 'File'--->'Save As...', in the 'File name:' write compile.bat and set 'Save as type:' to All files and press the Save-button.
QUACK! QUACK!
