Hammer Mapping — Page [1] 2

ok im really pissed off now. They're always seems to be location directory errors. i made a post recently about 2 problems. They both were because of file misplacement.

i was wondering if any of the more advanced users could help me, and hopefully others, out by listing all file location requirements.

For example, i learned that all the files related to this program must all be on the same drive.

right now i'm having a problem with the .bat file. I have the map name in everywhere, and i have all the files on the same drive, but it says it can't find the .map file. It doesn't ask for a directory for that file in the script.. so i myself was wondering how it even worked. i assumed it just did a drive search.. but anyway, i even put the .map file in the same folder as the .bat. and it still doesn't work..

any help plzz ? thanks alot :)

...and that's the bottom line because Mate de Vita said so.

Have you really, properly exported your map (which Hammer saves in the rmf format) as a map file (done by exporting)?

zhlt was a .wad file.. but i did download a folder from the tutorial that it said to put everything in. So i assume it's the same one.. i renamed it though. Does it matter? i made a previous map this way and it worked fine..

Is the file Brocken.map in the same folder with the .bat-file and the compile tools?
QUACK! QUACK!

The rmf doesn't have to be in the same folder, as far as I know. So that's probably why it didn't help.
