Can't Load Custom Levels (.hwm files?)
« on: August 30, 2013, 03:38:25 AM »
I tried following the tutorial here, but nothing appears in game. Not even the example. Only

levels/campaign.hwm
levels/defense.hwm

I tried putting a folder in this levels folder, as well as in the editor folder (as the guide says).

The editor can just open the .xml files

I can open the levels just fine in the editor. I can test run the levels just fine in the editor.

But when I try to play it for real (in the game), they don't appear.

Just use the LevelPacker, drag and drop your entire level folder on the .exe

What is required for that to work? What are the minimum requirements for it to pack a .hwm? And on top of that, I have a .hwm that is not showing up in the game either :/ (But Greywatch, Doom 1.4, etc show up just fine)

the maps can be started in debug mode... i dont know what the other's did, so that the map can be loaded in normal mode. :-\

All the level packer should need is a folder containing a correct info.xml and a level.xml. Also every level referenced in the level.xml must exist.

i have a simple map and didn't change much of the example .xml files.

the levelpacker also packs the level without error and gives me a levelfile as expected. but i can only see it in menu, when i open it from debug gamemode.

i don't see the difference between the levels .xml files from some games i can play and mine.

here's the code:
Quote
<levels start="1">
   <act name="lvl.act1">
      <level id="1" res="levels/TheUnseenLands_Shipwreck_1.xml" name="lvl.floor?floor=1" />
   </act>
</levels>

And you put the .hwm in your levels folder? You can post the .hwm and I'll take a look if you want.

thanks for taking the time!

i know there is a big chance that i only did something wrong and not able to find it...

here is the .hwm, info and -level.xml and also the editormap

i put the according .hwm into to the levels folder in the main hammerwatch folder. i still can only access the map via debug mode.

it actually works for me now.

i did not change anything. only copied some other maps out of the folder? they somehow clash with each other?
i dont know, but the map is shown now.  ::)

I don't have these files and I don't know why.
