How to update maps already uploaded to steam?

Post by Kawabanga » Thu Dec 20, 2018 7:07 pm

Hi, found a difficulty I can't find solution to. I've uploaded a map to steam, and don't know how to make updates to the same file, so that anyone who subscribed/downloaded my map will have it automatically updated. The problem is that when I upload a new version of map, it creates in steam a new entry instead of modifying old one.

You must continue to edit the same map you originally uploaded. Do not use "Save As" as that will trigger the editor to save the map as a new map.

In case it doesn't work try to run the game as administrator. Technical limitations requires the map file to be copied back and forth between a temporarily folder and back again. Something in this step might fail.
