PostSubject: BofD and IP Maps from Missions   Mon Jun 07, 2010 2:58 pm

I extracted all these maps, and can't seem to have them working. You can see them in the battleroom, but they can only accomodate 1 player. When I try with one, it tells me I have no opponent. The files are in cob, ota, tdf, tnt, and txt formats. Regular maps are in kmp formats. I can't seem to open tnt, and ota files; however cob I was able to with scriptor, but doesn't show anything about players.

Is there a way to make them work? Also, cartographer can not open any of these files.
Can these 5 files be compressed into kmp?

BofD is the original "Book of Darien" campaign (I would assume).

I know I have the "Walls of Elam" map, but I don't know if it was part of the original/IP multi-player maps or not. Its definitely in the campaign, though.

I'll see if I can compress the 5 files into kmp using the hpi file packer.
BofD means Book of Darien.

I have also tried to do this extract the mission files and than pack them into a kmp file. But i must be doing something wrong while carthographer tells me that the map "has no OTA file". The same problem occurs when i am trying to do this with the original cavedog maps i.e. Castle since they are packed in an hpi file and not as kmp file. I have no idea why this happends.

the kmp maps use diferent files (CRT, OTA, TNT, TXT) however the player start info should be in the OTA file. if there wasent any then that would probably be your problem =s

Were you able to pack the 5 files into a .kmp? I'm trying to have all mission maps playable for online gaming.
