How to Add a Text Intro to Your Maps
« on: June 15, 2008, 03:09:22 PM »
If this exists somewhere here already, just delete. This is some basic info every mapper should know. This will show you how to make a simple text introduction for your maps.

example:

dust2, press M to choose a team, next to the selection you can see a short amount of text describing the map/credits.

Difficulty: Simple

First, open notepad and type up whatever you like. I like to start with the map name and who it is by and give credit where credit is due. Then some details about the map. There is a limit to the number of chars that will show up, but it changes when you pack it. Try to limit the spacing and new lines to the least amount possible to ensure you get everything you want to say on there.

Second, save the file with the exact name of the map but keep it a .txt. And save it in your cstrike/maps directory.

ex:

de_dust2.txt


Next, go in game and load up your map. Spawn and press M and read your intro and make sure everything looks correct.

Lastly, you need to pack your map with pakrat, when you scan your drive for the files you need, make sure the .txt file is selected and added to the pack.

Boom! you have a map intro in your map \

The pakrat homepage has been removed.. :S
Does pakrat  bind this text and the textures which why have downloaded external, that the others can see that like me?
