Whats wrong with my map Zan won't load it

Recommended Posts

Hey I made a DM level for Zandronum it will load from gzdoombuilder to zandronum. But if I run it straight from Zandronum it says no map tud01 exists.

Any Ideas why?

It would help if we could see it - and whenever I make a level with a non-existent map number, it works but it says "<Map number>: Unnamed" and no music plays unless you add it using XWE, Slade or through scripting.

Interesting - the Map/ChangeMap console commands appear to be broken or disabled in Zandronum and have been since at least Skulltag 0.98d. Drag-n-drop doesn't work either. If you haven't already done so I'd suggest you check the Zandronum forums to see if there's a workaround for those issues, apart from using a map launcher.

I assume that the engine looks for the default MAP01, Map02, etc. since it cannot possibly know what name you gave for the mapnumber.

You should give the engine a clue as to what name you gave for the mapnumber.
I created and inserted a map MAP01 with a script to make it pitchblack and immediately carry on to map TUD01 through MAPINFO.

While this works, I do not know if this is the proper, or only, way to accomplish this.
Of course, this has the drawback that it goes through MAP01 first.

Example pwad


One other thing, you should keep track of placing flats into the proper namespace and not like this:

Ok Problem Fixed I apparently converted from doom format to hexen format I just copied and pasted it in a new map now to fix a weird water issue that just appeared.

Lumps are organized according to category.
http://zdoom.org/wiki/Namespace

Take a look at the way you have the flats arranged in your map and compare it to the way I did this.




Flats, those textures which are used for floors or ceilings, are placed between the markers F_START and F_END, otherwise the editor will be confused at what to use.

Likewise patches, those textures which are used for walls, are placed between markers P_START and P_END.

ZDoom however has also a namespace TX_START and TX_END for those textures which can be used as flats or patches.

That's a bit of a shortcut, patches aren't placed directly, instead they're used to create textures which are placed on walls. This is done in a TEXTUREx lump (or, for ZDoom and Zandro, you can use TEXTURES instead).

Ah ok I'll remember that thanks

It's also worth noting that each flat has been duplicated, which isn't a big issue but for the sake of neatness you might like to delete the copies.

To go directly to TUD01 in my Example pwad above, add NoIntermission to the MAPINFO lump, eg:

map MAP01 "ENTRY_MAP"
{
next = "TUD01"
NoIntermission
}

map TUD01 "TUROK TEMPLE"
{
LevelNum = 2
next = "TUD01"
}
