If you need some tips on the fly, I know quite a few tricks about sin editing. Mostly from learning from my own mistakes the helpful advice of guys like Blindtypist and Eucetic(I spell his name right?). I haven't published a map yet, but thats mostly due to compiling/time/optimization issues of my own. Just toss me an icq if you have a question.

Re: Hey guys wanna make maps.. help ?
 
well i dont have your icq and would make you sorry probly for giving to me with all the Q's i will undoubtedly have .. like this one i already have ... i was reading the instructions and didnt get this line...open a DOS window, do a cd \tempsin and run:makepak -u pak0.sin........ i tried to do what it was i thought they were saying .. but i keep getting invalid command , so far it seems like they assume we know how to make maps in the instructions.. oh well go read some more and maybe a answer will come .. peace

oh for the maek palk thing, make a tempsin folder in sin and copy pak0, pak4 and makepak into the folder. then run dos, cd \tempsin, and then enter thoses lines, makes sure you have enough hd space for the unpacking, sounds likeyou did not copy those three files into the tempsin folder

Re: Hey guys wanna make maps.. help ?
 
BTW .. im opening it right from the BIN folder

slayerjon 10-17-1999 07:08 PM

Re: Hey guys wanna make maps.. help ?
 
are you opening it with the command line
"C:\tools\sin\bin\sined.exe ..\base\scripts\sample.sed"????

Re: Hey guys wanna make maps.. help ?
 
AH HA .. thnx .. beb back with more q's soon

Re: Hey guys wanna make maps.. help ?
 
I have a quick question myself. When installing the SiNed, I found I didn't have the pak4 file, only 0,1,2, and 3. I'm upgraded to version 1.06 so whats the deal?

Ahz 10-17-1999 10:42 PM

Re: Hey guys wanna make maps.. help ?
 
Not all the paks are neccessary. The paks your missing are just on your cd as they were probably options you chose not to install, like music files.

Medieval Buzz 10-17-1999 10:51 PM

Re: Hey guys wanna make maps.. help ?
 
The pak4 file isn't on the cd either. The reason I ask is because when I try to open a texture folder such as hq, it only shows grey, no texture. I just figure that it might have to do with me not having the pak4 file as that's the only thing I can see that I'm missing.

Re: Hey guys wanna make maps.. help ?
 
They textures not showing may be just sined bieng a pain in the ass, i know for me that sometimes textures dont show, and then i have to restart sined a few times and then they show again.

Medieval Buzz 10-17-1999 11:08 PM

Re: Hey guys wanna make maps.. help ?
 
I've never gotten them to show though despite trying many times.

Is there like a troubleshooting guide to be found anywhere? I don't want to aggrevate everyone here about my problems.

slayerjon 10-17-1999 11:15 PM

Re: Hey guys wanna make maps.. help ?
 
first off are you running sined with
"C:\tools\sin\bin\sined.exe ..\base\scripts\sample.sed"
if you dont how to do this make a shortcut for sined and then go to properties of the shortcut and in the target line add " ..\base\scripts\sample.sed" with outh the "" but including a space between C:\tools\sin\bin\sined.exe and ..\base\scripts\sample.sed
-------------------------------------------
second if hq is in the menu of sined that means that you probably have the textures to check go to C:\tools\sin\base\textures\hq
and see if there are any .swl files there, if they are there then you are being screwed by sined
----------
post to tell me what you find

Icculus LoK 10-17-1999 11:20 PM

Re: Hey guys wanna make maps.. help ?
 
damn man this SinEd sucks .. its a tweaking on me .. once i open the sample sed its all freaky . the windows like opartial overlap each other .. you know what i mean ?? obviously something is wrong .. if the images of the windows like stick when i move them and then when i move another the ghost images all over lap each other and it looks like a mess man .. you guess have this prob /?

Medieval Buzz 10-17-1999 11:29 PM

Re: Hey guys wanna make maps.. help ?
 
Yeah, slayerjon every is just like you said it should be. I guess sined is screwing me somehow. When I load the hq texture for instance, it says hq/ at the top of the window. Is there supposed to be more or something? Ga!!

I feel a computer induced headache coming on....

Thanks for the help though. Its greatly appreciated.

Re: Hey guys wanna make maps.. help ?
 
is there something else to make maps for sin with ? my girlfriend is ahving probs too.. strange huh ...

slayerjon 10-17-1999 11:36 PM

Re: Hey guys wanna make maps.. help ?
 
your not all running sined on windows 3.1 are you ahahahhahahahahahaha
i've said it before and i'll say it again "buy a mac"

and for the windows thing i've had something like that, its when there should be an opengl error but hte errowindow does not pop up, just leave the prog open and load sined 2 more times, and then alt+crt+del all the erros and start sined again
