FA2 maps wont open
Posted 05 June 2008 - 07:47 AM
I dont plan on being an ass of anything(and saying i made them when i didnt or any of that crap), i just want to be able to open the maps in FA2.
Could someone please pm to me how to make them open?
Also, with the official maps, is there some way to make them open too? what about making them transferable? cause i want to use one of the official maps i downloaded as a base for a modded map(circuit board is the one i want), but if it cant transfer then i cant use it...
Anyway, any help would really be appreciated.
Thanks in advance,

so wait, can you step me through this, cause i think i didnt what you said, but it still wont open
(it gets an error, then if i try loading the backup it said doesn't support theater)
you open map in wordpad
change to official=no
change the name of the map file(i just copied my circut board, so its new name was 'copy of CrctBrd')
do i need to change the extensions name?(so make it .yrm instead of yro?)
cause i tried that just encase, still didnt work...
are you sure that it can actually be done? if so, could you, like i said, step me through what i have to do.
also, i understand people not wanting to blab out how to do it, but i still want to know(thats why a asked to be pmed, that way they dont have to let everyone know)
is it normal that my map editor gets an error and crashes when i try and open a protected map though? cause i think i remember on my old computer it just said the theater error, but on this one, it crashes, then when i try loading the backup it gives theater error...

the ones that end .yro however, they are actually mix files that you need to extract the map from first
Also, there are multiple ways to make a map unreadable for FA2, and just because you want to know doesn't mean you get to. Tough luck.
What's stopping you from migrating to Ares? We can't implement it unless you tell us!

but why all this protection anyway?(on official maps and protected user made maps)
all i want to do is add a script(afterglow i think its called, the one that makes building glow), cause the map has a weird day/night loop, that goes from blinding bright, to so dark you cant see a thing,
or i might just make the day/night loop a normal day/night. which is alot easier to do with the tool script then manually going through...
thats all i want to do
but i cant ask the creator of the map because they aren't on line any more... i got the maps probably a year or two ago
and i've given up on the official map, its not That good...

(like i said, all i want to do is add afterglow script)
