   GARRISON BUILDER TUTORIAL
by Uberdeath and Agentkid

CP How to
Many players have been asking over and over again about how to do control point. So I am doing this.
Normal CP
Load the Background and Walkmask of your map
Hit the button label Walkmask Visibility and look for any overlaps that you might need to fix
If everything is in order hit the WM visibility button again and now hit Turn grid on.\
Place spawn doors, you should make them 4 doors/floors think in order to prevent people from placing there guns through the door.

Place Medical Cabinets and spawn locations.

By agentkid at 2009-05-13
Control point time(Normal)
Hit Control Point 1 and place (if wrong team right click on it), it changes team every couple of times. Now hit Control Point and place them overlapping where you want people to cap. Repeat with other points.
Cp 1 has to be on the dead left and cp 5 at the right because that decides where the capturing icon will be in game

By agentkid at 2009-05-13
Attack/Defend
Red attacks Blu Always

Setup the spawns, and other such things
Now hit Setup gate and lock the Red teams spawn up now place the cps starting from 1 to 5 where you want and place the Capture zones around them the game should make it attack/ defend if all the points are blu and there setup gates.

By agentkid at 2009-05-13

Multiple stage i havent tried yet but i think you place the stages on the same map and place a INGAME NEXT ZONE thingie in the black space between the maps

Other things
Kill/ kill on touch IDK
Box showing a scout in a room  Respawn room
Frag/Frag on touch KaBOOM

    CTF How-to

First off, LOAD THE BUILDER.

Up should come a blank white screen with a toolbar.
Before doing anything, press F3 and enter in the information it prompts you too. When it asks you to specify the directory Gang Garrison 2.exe is in, go to the folder you downloaded Gang Garrison 2 to, and double-click on Gang Garrison 2.exe.

Next off: LOAD YOUR MAP.
Information on how to make your map is here: http://ganggarrison.com/forums/index.php?topic=920.0
and here: http://ganggarrison.com/forums/index.php?topic=7.0

You will need a wallmask and a background for your map.
Click Load WM on the toolbar in Garrison Builder.
Select your Wallmask.
Then, click Load BG on the toolbar in Garrison Builder, and select your Background.

Then: ADDING ENTITIES.

Use the arrow keys (up, down, right, left) to navigate through your map.

The little scout icon (RED or BLU) should be placed where you want the RED and BLU players to spawn, respectively. There can be more than one spawn room, just so ya know.
The little red and blue lines should be placed as spawn doors, where you only want the RED team and BLU team to be.
If at any point you want to take a break, you can click Save Entities and it will save your Entity file where you choose.
(To get back your map, load the wallmask and background again and also load the entity file by clicking Load Entities)

If you are making a CTF map (Capture the Flag) then you will need to use the Intels. The Intel is shaped like a briefcase, and in the teamís respective color. Drag the red Intel (which will be picked up by the BLU team) to where you want it on your map. Repeat this step with the blu Intel.
Now, say you want to have a couple intels in one place for one team to grab, and then another place where they have to return it. You can place the RED/BLU Intel spawn icons where you want the teams to go to get points for returning the Intel. 

More things you can add are Kill and Frag boxes, which Kill and Frag players when they touch them in the game. (Say if you want to kill players for falling down a tunnel or whatnot.)

There are plenty of other entities you can add, but lets not get into that right now.

Next step:  SAVING AND COMPILING.

Once you have every single entity you want loaded, along with your background and wallmask, click Emped in PNG.
This will save your map, fully compiled, in a portable network graphics document.

If you have specified which directory Gang GArrison 2 is in, and if you have added the compiled PNG to the Garrison Builder Maps folder, you can press F5 to test out your map.

My apologies.

Press F3, and a dialog should pop up. Keep going until it gets to the part about the location of GG2, then try running it again.

Also, please try and refrain from using an excessive amount of smileys, especially if it doesn't relate to the topic at hand. Thank you.
