Enabling Capture The Flag gametype with forged maps?

#1Fayt980Posted 9/16/2010 8:38:42 AM
Every time I try to make CTF for one of my maps it says "This map varient is not compatable with this game varient"
I have flags and capture plates,as well as all the needed spawn points and red vs blue settings on the items on my Forgeworld map, but I still get this message. What else do I need to do so I can play CTF on my custom maps?
I've seen others ask this question who had the smae problem but their topics never got answered. Please help.

Okay, I'll try to lay it out as simple as possible.

1. Build your map in Forge under "Basic Editing"
2. Place your Flag Stands.
3. Set the team option appropriately.
4. Set "Shape" to None.
5. Save the map and end the game.
6. Change the Forge gametype to Capture the Flag and start the game.
7. Go to your Flag Stands and select properties.
8. Enter the Advanced menu.
9. Set "Game-Specific" to True.
10. Set "Game Type Label" to CTF_FLAG_RETURN.
11. Save and end the game.
12. Enjoy

Oh, also, hill markers and plates are not needed for CTF. And if you test the game by yourself, the other team's flag won't spawn. The flag only spawns if there is someone on the team. This confused the heck out of me for hours until I decided to try turning on a second controller.

Ok I'll try it. I saw the advanced settings but maybe I missed that. And cool, I didn't know plates weren't needed.

I have yet to figure this out too. I tried making a 1 flag ctf but no matter what I did I couldn't get it to work.

Thanks a lot guys, that Flag return setting is what I needed and now it works. I didn't think to use those options, I just picked the regular-looking ones on that tab.

The Bomb is actually a Hill Marker edited under the Assault gametype. You switch the label to "AS_BOMB." Then use a Capture plate and change it's Gametype label to "AS_GOAL."

If you don't use capture plates how does the game know when you've captured the flag?
