View Full Version : Map name change problem

10-19-2009, 12:45 PM
Hi All

i have renamed a map using "Save as" yet still the old map name appears in the load up screen, how do I fix it?

Second question how do I provide a ingame title for each objective in WWL? i.e "Destroy barrier"

I suggest opening the .trk file from your new map (Notepad will do)and making the correct changes.

Question 1: Tassanee said how should you do it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Also check <map_name>_StartProp.scr

Question 2: Open "Selections" window, click on "Historical" to open WWL Game Mode objects, now go to window "Object List", find object "OBJ_<number>_B/R", click on the first file (there should be 6 objects with names like that) and open "Attributes window". Now you can see attributes of this object. Change text in "TextID' and "ShortTextID" (it must be the same text!).

I change the .trk file in map folder but the game still launches as old name? I cannot find the <map_name>_StartProp.scr file anywhere, can you tell me where it is located.

I have found the .scr file but i cannot open it, can you recomend any programs to edit the file?

This will teach me to name the map correctly lol

You can open all .scr's with Notepad.

Hi Seir

Every time I try to open the .scr file I get a error message and no option to "Open With" or am I looking at the wrong file

I cant see any reference to "<map_name>_StartProp.scr"

Map_Name. file type. screen saver?

OS W XP Pack 3

Run Notepad and use "File > Open" http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

- StartProp.scr is for SP missions
- .trk file is for MP maps

You have MP map? Send me .zip file with all files except backup files.

Yep its a MP game, so thats why I could not see the .scr file http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I have successfully changed the .trk file

Do you want to PM your email address and I'll zip the map for you.

This really is frustrating as I cant see any reference to the old map name anywhere except in the load up screen when I test the map.
