Chapter problem

Dan told me to follow this: http://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki ... o_your_mod to add chapters for my mod. So i did that an i have a problem:

I have made chapter1.cfg which contains the following:

map outbreak_intro_v1

The name of the map is definately outbreak_intro_v1.bsp and it is in the maplist.txt exactly the same.

In my Outbreak_english.txt file I entered this where VDC says:

"Outbreak_Chapter1_Title" "INTRO"

I dont think this is the problem anyway considering the name of the chapter and the image shows up fine when i press new game. When I click the chapter to start it, the panel just closes and leaves me at the menu. I checked the console and it says:

Unknown command "�"
Unknown command "m"


Is it me or does it think the first part of "map outbreak_intro_v1" being an "m" is a command?

Re: Chapter problem

I suggested this to dan, he said it wouldnt make a difference but i thought id give it a shot.
I changed the chapter1.cfg file to:

"map" "outbreak_intro_v1"

This got rid of the unkmown command "m" error but i still have the unknown command "�" error. Im pretty sure this proves that what i said before about the m at the start of "map" as being seen as a command rather than the whole word.
Still not sure about the second one though, i dont even know what that character is supposed to be or where/if ive even used it...

I also tried:

"map outbreak_intro_v1"

Which gives the same result but still that 2nd error.

Re: Chapter problem

Haha, at the top of this page:

http://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Chapter

It says to save the cfg as unicode encoding, so i did that. Someone said to change it back to ANSI on Steam forums.

ITS FIXED!!!! WOOOOT!!!!
