Using your mod on our server, and I really like it. I tried to edit the mod to include some of the custom maps we have added to the server. I wanted the map name and preview image to appear just as the stock maps do. However, it doesn't seem to work. Here is some of what I have done.

Code: Select all
   level.iw4xmaps["rasalem"]["localised_name"] = "Rasalem";
   level.iw4xmaps["rasalem"]["preview_name"] = "preview_mp_rasalem";
   level.iw4xmaps["rasalem"]["zone_name"] = "mp_rasalem";
   
   level.iw4xmaps["hijack"] = [];
   level.iw4xmaps["hijack"]["localised_name"] = "Hijacked";
   level.iw4xmaps["hijack"]["preview_name"] = "preview_mp_box_hjacked";
   level.iw4xmaps["hijack"]["zone_name"] = "mp_box_hjacked";
   
   level.iw4xmaps["castle"] = [];
   level.iw4xmaps["castle"]["localised_name"] = "Castle";
   level.iw4xmaps["castle"]["preview_name"] = "preview_mp_waw_castle";
   level.iw4xmaps["castle"]["zone_name"] = "mp_waw_castle";
   
   level.iw4xmaps["hanoi"] = [];
   level.iw4xmaps["hanoi"]["localised_name"] = "Hanoi";
   level.iw4xmaps["hanoi"]["preview_name"] = "preview_mp_4hanoi";
   level.iw4xmaps["hanoi"]["zone_name"] = "mp_4hanoi";
   
   level.iw4xmaps["resist"] = [];
   level.iw4xmaps["resist"]["localised_name"] = "Resistance";
   level.iw4xmaps["resist"]["preview_name"] = "preview_mp_iclan";
   level.iw4xmaps["resist"]["zone_name"] = "mp_iclan";


I have added the preview IWIs to the images folder in the mod as well. Is there any way to make this work?

Thanks for using my mod :) what you have done would work although the iwis need to be included in the mod.ff, hence the reason your custom preview images will not work. You would have to build your own mod fast file which includes the images you would like. I can build you a custom one for you if you just let me know which extra maps you would like included?

Ah ha! Well that makes sense! I am still trying to learn/figure out this modding thing. Since the only tool I have available is for maps, it was all I could do. Youre lucky to have the mod builder. :) Should I send you a list of maps in a PM or attach it here?

Thanks again.

Its easily do able yourself as zonebuilder is included with iw4x :) you can start it by adding -zonebuilder to the target of a iw4x shortcut. Yeah sure man just pm me the maps you'd like, up to you if you want to send me your iwis as well. If not I should be able to find them no problem anyway.

Ok. Im about to give up. Google is useless in trying to find any info on using zonebuilder. Most of the TOR links that come up time out and dont work. I just cant seem to find any info on using this thing to build ff files. I have no issues asking for help, especially when someone like you is nice enough to offer to do it for me. I was just hoping to have figured this out so I dont have to keep coming back to bug you to re-do this thing as I add new or different maps.

Do you know of any online tutorials to explain using the zonebuilder to build the ff files?

Thanks again!!

PS: If I havent figured this out by tomorrow expect a rather lengthy PM from me. :lol:

Haha don't worry too much, there is no guides even released yet on how to work the iw4x zonebuilder. Ill message you in a bit on discord on how to use them and ill send you my files so you can see how I built the mod.ff for the vote mod.

Hi! This is an awesome voting mod. I'm new to all this modding in general.
Could you tell me if this can be used in a cod4 server? and if it can be then how?

Thanks again in advance.

Hi Thank you for the interest in my mod :)
This version wouldn't work for cod4, but yes you are correct it could be used in a cod4 server, but it would require a rewrite as this is made for mw2 clients. It wouldn't be too hard for someone to transfer to a cod4 mod but if I were to do it I would have to find some free time as I am back to work and I usually only mess around with stuff like this during the summer. So don't hold your breath on this one, or either try to convert it yourself.
