How to fix a corrupted map

Postby PhaseTank on Sun Dec 05, 2010 5:15 am

I know a trick how to!

So, if you have a map that you can't open with Construction Kit or play instant action... Then:

1. Go to Dark Reign/dark/scenario/SINGLE, copy your damaged map into.
2. Delete the map called: DEFAULT!
3. Rename your map folder in DEFAULT (such as: 1vs1 to: DEFAULT)
4. Enter the DEFAULT folder, rename 1vs1.scn and 1vs1.map to DEFAULT.scn and DEFAULT.map
5. Start Dark Reign, go to Construction Kit, click: load! (You don't see the map, but Construction Kit will load it!)
7. Click: Save as, give your map a name: 1vs1 (Construction Kit will say, "Error Saving Scenario", Scenario .\darkscenario\SINGLE\1vs1 cannot be created)
8. Click: OK!
9. Click: Save! (You can see now map: 1vs1)



Enjoy!

Another reason that might be happening is that, 'Folder is ready for archiving' is on.
It needs to be turnned off.

Go to the SCENARIO folder and make sure its turned off in properties.

Also moving the Dark reign folder to c:\ can help fix werid problems. as Drag pointed out.
I dont know if its the same problem I had but see what happens.

Problem is, you can't see the maps anywhere. So you can't load or play thise maps... But you can repair the maps with this way that I told. ;)
