Now how do I set up a custom game and play them with my friend? Seriously it could not be any more unintuitive. The maps are in "My Maps" when I'm in the map editor, but when I go to make a custom game from the multiplayer menu, I select "My Maps" and it appears to only show maps that I myself have designed and published.
Additionally, I downloaded some custom maps that have vehicles and are "race" oriented... I can test them out in the map editor, but when I want to play them in a custom private match with my friend, will they be there?
Seriously... You don't know how to set up a custom match...?
Main Menu > Multiplayer > Multiplayer > Either Create Custom Match or Map Editor Archive > (assuming you picked Map Editor Archive) Select the map you wish to play > Create Private Match/Play Public Match.
Pretty simple stuff if you know how to properly navigate a menu.
People really need to stop complaining about the inclusion of online passes...
Incorrect. I did not say I have issues setting up a custom match with the default maps; the topic explicitly states that the maps I've downloaded - I'm unable to use THOSE in a custom match.
You go to Multiplayer --> Create Custom Match --> Map Selection. All that is listed is the maps that UbiSoft created. You can click the left stick to select "My Setup", and from here go to "My Maps" - but even here, the maps you've downloaded do not appear.
So, I'll ask again: how do you set up a custom match with maps you've downloaded from other users? Secondly, are we really barred from using the "race" maps with the vehicles in a private match?
