Map editor - map not showing up when hosting a game

Post by left4kill5 » Wed Mar 20, 2019 7:24 am

I made a demo for my new campaign map and I wanted to show my friends the part that were intrested in, but then, when I got up to the bit where I made my private server, I couldn't find my map in the custom folder. I checked the other folders and they weren't there. But when I went back into map editor, it was there! In the custom folder! But I couldn't find in-game. Help me fix this glitch please.

You have to restart the game in order to refresh the map list after new maps have been added to it.

If you can open it in the Editor you can save as in a different folder, or check the installation folder Data\Maps\Custom which sometimes get saved there and move it.

Make sure the map is not marked as "template" (it should be set to "false"). You find this property among the name/description/thumbnail fields of your map. If it's true it won't show up.
