OK, tested the map that looks really well designed (though a little bit too claustrophobic for me). Have to recheck it in a real fight, with real humans.
To me also, im more of open spaces, i wanted to vary a little bit since we don't all like the same stuff.
I haven't understood how to solve the problem of missing textures. I would be grateful if you could enlighten me on this point. If I remove all other MachoBastard's .pk3 the map is OK. But now what? If I want to play Mulege Prison, for instance, I have to download the map again and the problem is back in Gray Stallion Manor.
Yup, removing the pk3's would solve the problems, coz i made some changes to my script files for this release, but the old script file inside the pk3 files from my previous maps contain outdated info, the only 2 solutions would be to re-upload my previous releases packed with the newest script files, or to make a sort of "map pack" containing all my releases so far, all working of course, ill look into it since i dunno if releasing a map-pack would be problematic size-wise.
A question: what are those blue, or black, rectangles -- like sprayed stencil paint -- spread randomly all over the textures (I mean, also when playing with all the right textures in place)?
you mean you see this color light blobs no matter if you delete the previous pk3 files?, if you do, do you see this same problem on any of my previous maps?, i had this problem in Mulege Prison when i first tried High-Res Lightmaps, but turns out it was a hardware problem on an old pc.
Seems MachoBastard is using a very recent RAR format. I wasn't able too to extract the file with legacy unrar 4.0 I had on my computer.
Yeah, im using Rar5 compression method, don't even know if there are advantages to it, but it's very likely we gonna start seeing a lot of Rar5 files soon, you can download the V5.0 from the official site, its a 30day trial, or look for a portable (unless you are against "warez", haha). Rar 5 should be available for ubuntu too.
About ubuntu, i know squat, been a long time since i bacame alergic to WINE, so i went back to good old simple WinXP, of coz til i had some hardware update and XP became outdated and i was pushed to use the "more reliable" Win7, which is so far to my personal experience slow(USB, LAN, HDD, SSD), heavy, glitchy.
