Jump to: navigation, search

These are steps that tell you how to load in your custom maps.



Code taken from your map Remember bolded items you set.

<Resource type="aamap" name="name" version="0.0.0" author="author"

Paths of where this map must be saved.

Remember bolded items you set in the map.

Remember to use the exact case that you have it in your map.

  • Linux - /usr/share/games/armagetronad/resource/included/author/category
  • Windows - C:\Program Files\Armagetron Advanced\resource\included\author\category
  • Mac OS X - Armagetron

What do I need to title it

you simply save it as

for this one it would be


Configuring it

For this you will need to edit settings.cfg

Location of settings.cfg

  • Windows - C:\Program Files\Armagetron Advanced\config\settings.cfg
  • Mac OS X - Armagetron

I am unsure on this

  • Linux - /usr/share/games/armagetronad/config/settings.cfg

Ubuntu Linux, Maybe Other Distros - /usr/etc/games/armagetronad/settings.cfg To edit the file you must be root (linux administrator), by either logging in as root or using the 'sudo' command (or your disto's equivalent)

What do i change in settings.cfg

Code taken from settings.cfg starting on line 28 going to 40

#MAP_FILE   Your_mom/clever/repeat-0.3.2.aamap.xml    # square with obstacles

#MAP_FILE   Your_mom/clever/inaktek-0.7.2.aamap.xml   # octagon with obstacles
#ARENA_AXES 8                                         # set automatically by map to this value

#MAP_FILE   Luke-Jr/HexaTRON/HexaTRON-0.4.3.aamap.xml # hexagonal flower
#ARENA_AXES 6                                         # set automatically by map to this value

#MAP_FILE   Anonymous/polygon/regular/40-gon-0.1.1.aamap.xml   # almost circular
#MAP_FILE   Anonymous/polygon/regular/diamond-1.0.2.aamap.xml  # like the square, but corners cut off

#MAP_FILE   Z-Man/fortress/zonetest-0.1.0.aamap.xml            # test map for fortress zones
#MAP_FILE   Z-Man/fortress/for_old_clients-0.1.0.aamap.xml     # fortress map compatible with older clients

in this code all you need to add is Remember all Bold are Set in your map file.

MAP_FILE   author/category/name-version.type.xml
