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.

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

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
