    How about the next time you ask me to upload your map you make sure it works first. Your res file is pointing to the minimap picture of the first beta which is not included in the second release and not sent to players in the res file. Half of the people who wanted to play couldn't.

    The map needs more of a point. The BE capped the center flag and killed the NF barracks, but we were still fighting.

    It was fun to play though. We did enjoy ourselves. (i can't speak for the people who couldn't play)

    Once I changed the mini-map image from the non existent one to Crossroads (which was a little odd to say the least) It was pretty fun, my only complaint is that there are some missing textures, such as on the poles in a yard of a dead house.....and the entire tank (sans treads, those showed up nicely) It shows promise, but that tank is more of a distraction then anything else.

    Don't get me wrong now Krenzo but
    ...use your head.

    The map is mirror map. We have 1 spawn in barrack, second spawn in trench and third spawn in the house if we capture it.

    What NF might have? Spawn in barrack too, second spawn in trench too and third spawn in the house if they capture it.

    You need to capture the trench spawn too even there isn't a flag shown in the minimap.

    Well then there needs to be a flag on the minimap for the trench capture.

    I like the beta 2 version a lot. It is much better than the first version. Now it isn't just sniping and hiding. Now it is actually very good action. I want to play this more now.

    I don't like it. All it is is Hello Kitty running around trying to melee you in the back!

    [quote="resource/maps/emp_desolation_beta2.txt:]"image" "maps/emp_desolation_beta1"[/quote] 1 should be 2.

    I'm certain I changed it to 2, but somehow I must have included a wrong version in the zip. Fucking christ, one number... something always has to go wrong.

    Everyone will have to open resource/maps/emp_desolation_beta2.txt and edit the number.

    Nope JJ45, the emp_desolation_beta1 files only work for the minimap, there must be an error in the version 2 ones...

    There is also a missing tank texture and a few legs of the table are missing textures too.

    I assume because this is an old map and maybe they were standard EmpiresMod content?

    This map has always devolved into a scout war. Even with the nerf, I doubt that will change. Why would anyone want to continue a scout map?

    :(

    But it looks so good, it is so sad to see such a good map isn't played anymore :(
