the info folder should be in your map folder... then make a picture 512x512(of whatever you wan't) and name it.... loadmap and save it as a .png in photoshop and then paste it over the loadmap.png thats in the info folder... do the same for the other

.png files... such as... gpm_cq_16_menuMap.png

try making a map the same size(name it... Test)

then erase the lightmaps

folder in your map you made... then replace the lightmaps with the lightmaps from your Test map into your map folder...

then start BF2 and it shouldn't crash... at least not because of unopenable lightmaps... CB

*** Looking for unsused object lightmaps [modsbf2Levelstest2LightmapsObjects]... ***

*** done ***

*** Generating atlas lightmaps for [levels/test2/lightmaps/objects]... ***

*** Failed ***

and this kind of errors for all the objects:

[LightmapGeneration] : Error loading lightsampling file: objects/staticobjects/military/uniqueobjects/us_carrier_wasp/us_carrier_wasp_back/Meshes/us_carrier_wasp_back_ladder.samples

[LightmapGeneration] : Error creating lightsampling!

have you downloaded the lightmap samples? Its 700mb and you have to put the three zip files in this folder

heres the link...

you dont have to run lightmaps for your map to work... maps just look cooler with the shadows from the lightmaps... CB

The colormaps are created when you paint your map in the terraineditor :wink: Before saving them, remove the read-only flag from the 'colormaps', 'detailmaps' and 'lowdetailmaps' folders in the map. The new editor accidently creates them read-only....
