Title: [App] UGX Installation Creator v1.1
Post by: treminaor on September 26, 2013, 02:49:18 am

Changelog:
- v1.1: Added 32bit x86 support.

Description

This program will create an installer for your map. It also supports installing .bik files. When finished installing, it will create a shorcut to launch the map inside a folder named "UGX Community Maps" on your desktop. No annoying Start Menu shortcuts or folders are created.

You may ask "Why do we need this when we have the UGX Map Manager?". This will be used by mappers to initially package up their map for download in the Releases section - once a map has been downloaded, played, and approved by a UGX Staff member, THEN that map gets added to the UGX Map Manager. If the map is not approved for the Manager, it will remain as an EXE Installer download.

How to Use

This functions the same way that other map install generators work - it should be a familiar process to mapping veterans. There have been a few small improvements, however:

To pack up your map, simply follow these steps:
[/list]
C:\Users\<USERNAME>\AppData\Local\Acivision\CoDWaW\mods\
<MAPNAME>_load.bik
Use any of the following hosts:

Do NOT use any of these hosts:

Great! I've been waiting for something like this. Now, I can use all UGX programs to get the job done, no more programs from other places. Things seem neat that way :D

People don't trust it. Someone's antivirus was blocking him from clicking a tinyurl last week.

It wasn't an antivirus, it was a DNS server that my Antivirus changed without me knowing, which i fixed, but none the less, Mega is very bugy and slower Download speeds than Mediafire in my opinion.

Make sure you have .NET v4 installed as well as the proper Visual C++ Redist packages.

Mediafire re-approved for file hosting, slingfile removed from recommended hosts because of slow speeds and waittimes (but is still allowed).

Awesome app. I was just about to ask how I could compile the loadscreen into my map but this should solve it.

Edit: The loadscreen won't play after installing the map (I changed the folders name but tried it with both names).

So to verify, you named your bik as mapffname_load.bik and placed it inside your appdata/mods/mapname folder, then zipped the folder using the installer creator?

If so, check root/main/video and see if your bik is in there. If it is and doesn't work, you named it incorrectly. If it isn't there, the installer either doesn't have permission to write to the folder or you packed it into the zip incorrectly.

After installing the map, the .bik doesn't appear inside the main/video folder (there's only the backup). Or did I get anything wrong?
Thanks so far(:

Why does the bik have _bububu on the end? Try running the installer as administrator.

Because it's a backup. I renamed it to be able to see wether the installer would create a new file. It didn't

PM me a link to your installer exe and I will try running it on my machine to see what happens.

You upload it to a filehost like mediafire and then you post a topic in the Releases section of the forum containing a description of the map, at least one picture or video, and a link to the map file you uploaded.

Go to the Map Manager topic and click the big red Download button. This topic is for the Installation Creator which is used by map makers to package their maps.

For everyone who could not run the installer, it turns out one of the exe's was 64bit instead of 32 bit. Download the v1.1 update from the first post and follow the new instructions in order to use the installer.

You might be better off inside the help-section with your question.

When you zip your map you have to zip the folder too. so that when you open the .zip you'll see the folder and not only its contents.

Your map shouldn't be that large. A stock UGX-MOD map is around 200mb, meaning you added 400mb to the map in some way. You have all the right files, don't know what the contents are so my view is obviously limited.
