So, am I screwed or what?

So, a couple of days ago I decided to fiddle with one of my old maps and made quite a bit of progress with it.

But!

I tried opening the map this morning. Guess what?

Yep, shit won't open... on WE or Newgen. When I try playing it, it doesn't show up on the map list.

It says something along the lines of "main map file not found" whenever I try opening it up. Should I be crying right now?

+ rep to all helpers.
 
Nope. On wrong patches, they show up on the map list. You just can't play them.

Besides, I'm not so much of a moron as to not have checked that before making a thread. ;)
 
here is a few questions:

- have you imported any song?
- have you imported anything?
- do you have too much variables? like 4 variables with 8153 arrays?
- is you map very very very very old?

my guess:
probably your map has something old that was removed from the editor in newer versions, try to find what is it and remove it.
 
- have you imported any song?

Nope.

- have you imported anything?

A lot of stuff. So much it's ridiculous. But they've all been in place since I started making the map, so I don't think imports are the problem.

- do you have too much variables? like 4 variables with 8153 arrays?

Not really. Maybe 20 variables with no more than 20 arrays for the biggest one.

- is you map very very very very old?

Again, not really. I began going over it two days ago and it only went screwy this morning.
 
so the problem is something you did recently on your map.
can you tell me everything you did in the last days?
 
So the map won't open at all? Did you use any other World Editor mods other than NewGen?

Nothing much on the lines of triggering besides fiddling with some cameras. Made a couple new custom doodads and a dummy unit. That's all.

I actually have an idea of what screwed my map over. My map used this model pack:

http://www.thehelper.net/forums/showthread.php?t=100074

and there's alot of stuff in there. Alot. Possibly a thousand custom models and skins. Plus some other imported models that I got a long time ago.

Nope, I don't think so. Just NewGen.
 
Did you moved the map?? from one folder to another? And u open by the top left recent opened map?

    News portal has been retired. Main page of site goes to Headline News forum now
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am working on getting access to the old news portal under a different URL for those that would rather use that for news before we get a different news view.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Easily done

  • The Helper The Helper:
    https://www.thehelper.net/pages/news/ is a link to the old news portal - i will integrate it into the interface somewhere when i figure it out
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Need to try something
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hopefully this won't cause problems.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hmm
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I have converted the Headline News forum to an Article type forum. It will now show the top 20 threads with more detail of each thread.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    See how we like that.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I do not see a way to go past the 1st page of posts on the forum though
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It is OK though for the main page to open up on the forum in the view it was before. As long as the portal has its own URL so it can be viewed that way I do want to try it as a regular forum view for a while
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Yeah I'm not sure what the deal is with the pagination.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It SHOULD be there so I think it might just be an artifact of having an older style.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I switched it to a "Standard" article forum. This will show the thread list like normal, but the threads themselves will have the first post set up above the rest of the "comments"
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I don't really get that article forum but I think it is because I have never really seen it used on a multi post thread
  • Ghan Ghan:
    RpNation makes more use of it right now as an example: https://www.rpnation.com/news/

    What do you think Tom?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I will have to get used to this.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    The latest news feed looks good
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I would like to see it again like Ghan had it the first time with pagination though - without the pagination that view will not work but with pagination it just might...
