    n00b Question - How To Save and Cook Maps.

    I need to save my map and try it out in game to make sure the scale and everything is OK. How do I do this?

    When ever I hit "Save As" I choose the name MoonGamesNew and it saves it to "Save Level As' Content Folder. Maps. When I cook the map, it always cooks and saves as the default map with the 2 chairs, and saves under the name MoonGames02. I names the default map that when I first started. My map is a full bsp level with no chairs in it at all. It saves a totally different map to the one I'm working on.


    So what I'm trying to figure out is, how to correctly save a map and how to correctly cook it so I can play it from in game. I have player starts already added. I used to map for 2k4 and 2k4 and this seems totally different to the old editors.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks guys!

    I removed the old version of the map form the launchers vault, and Now when I hit cook I get a really long error message.

      I am a noob too, but what I usually do it's this:

      -I save my map with the correct name: DM-MyCrazyMap CTF-MyDumbMap
      -I know what a map needs (lighting, possibly a sky dome, obviously something to walk on, and spawn points.
      -I press "build" to build ALL and I solve errors
      -Then i save againg
      -Then i press "share", and i wait. At the end i usually choose "not" for an early version (I have a 0.3 megabit upload).
      -I play it in the standard game choosing "create a game".

      This is what i do if i want to play my map outside the editor.

        Thank Sgob, but I don't see a share option within the editor?

          How out of date are you? It's at the very top menu, has been for a bare minimum of 1 month.

                are you using the actual UT editor? sounds like you're using the UE one.

                  I don't have that option. I'm using the one that downloaded from the launcher.

                    Does your editor say "UnrealTournament" in the upper right, like raxxy's?

                      Nope. It has the project name.

                        In the launcher there are 2 different editors.

                        The UnrealTournament editor is under the Unreal Tournament tab of the launcher. You select the "Create" option and install from there.



                        EDIT: Essentially...if you only want to create UT4 maps, you could uninstall the other engine versions under the Unreal Engine tab.
                        Be sure to backup your maps.
