How do you run maps that are in txt files on multiwinia?
Where do i place these files exactly, among the many files in multiwinia?
Patrolman smith helped me the first time, and now i have a two folders ("levels" and "thumbnails"), within a folder named "Data".
I forgot how to install a modded map :(

not difficult at all, just put the txt files in multiwinia/data/levels. then start the game, and if you named your txt file correctly, it will appear at the top of the map selection list of whichever gametype it's supposed to be. make sure you have those folders, if not just create them in that order.

here's the naming parameters:

mp_[gametypeinitial][playercount]_[mapname][authorinitials]_[version].txt

for example: mp_d2_thinkfastTD_1.0.txt

The name of the file doesn't matter at all. The number of players, type etc. is all withing the text itself. The name is just for user convenience.

I thought the game reads the name of the text file to determine where to put it in the selection menu.
