A LOT of Problems
« on: May 24, 2009, 01:52:11 pm »

To start off, this is my first map. I named it test1. I made a .locator file, I have a (simple) walkmask, and I have a (crude and boring) background.

Whenever I try to save the entities in Garrison Builder, it doesn't come up with an error, but after that I use the 'Load Entity' to check if it saved. It's never there.

Second, when I try to test it, it comes up with this error:
Quote from: Garrison_builder
ERROR in
action number 1
of Mouse Event for Left Pressed
for object Button:

Cannot execute "\Gang Garrison 2.exe"

Third and final, whenever I try the test cycle in GG2 it just goes through the regular stages. If I type in the specific file (it has no errors, I copied it) it just goes to a random stage. I even tried saving the .locator and the background into the 'Maps' folder in the style of the other two in there.

Just a quick question concerning the .locator: is the url inside supposed to lead to an image of the background or an image of the walkmask?

I suppose that's it for now.

when saving, add ".ent" at the end of the name.

Alright, I tried the test thing with F5, and it came up with this error.

Oh, and whenever I load the stage with Caption Points 1-3, the team is always randomized. Is there a way to stop this?

No, just ignore it. Garrison builder does not display that stuff correct.

I think he might mean in-game, in which case they're not randomized.

GG2 tries to distribute the CPs equally between RED and BLU and completely ignores what you set them to.

With 3 CPs, CP1 will go to RED, CP2 will go to Neutral, and CP3 will go to BLU.

Using 1 CP will not work, using 2 CP will give both to BLU and make it an attack map.(I think.)

ERGH.  :angry:

I filled it out a few times, and it came up with an almost identical error:
Quote from: Garrison_builder
ERROR in
action number 1
of Key Press Event for F5 Key
for object mc:

Cannot execute "C:\\Gang Garrison 2.exe"


@Demonic: It's not in-game, but that's good enough an answer for me (it still explains it).
