    how is that ?
    doesnt it appear in the map list ?

    check the things:
    - click on skirmish and multiplayer in level variables (level)
    - save global data > yes.

    What is in the map?


    As in, are there many Heroes placed about the map?

    Make sure that there are no creatures placed where there is a door/trap also.

    Well, sorted it out. official editor seems to hate the 1.3 game version. you can't create new maps with it. However, I've learned how to cheat on it

    1.3 supports only official maps and some random maps. Find the map that runs okay, copy the map file "mapname".kwd, so that you have copy of "mapname".kwd.

    Now, create another map on the basis of the original "mapname". Edit, change, do whatever you want. when the map is ready, save it, cal it "mapname 1" for example. Rename all the "mapname 1" files into copy of "mapname". Now, with Hex editor, open previously created copy of "mapname".kwd. You will see, that this file is empty, save some redirection lines. you will see, that this file redirects info to all other files (players, things, map etc). Now it shows sth like maps/"mapname"Map.kld . You have to rename them all into copy of "mapname" respectively.

    You're done!

    yea i think you can only play the maps on 1.7 as far i know.
    but still have a look on things madkill mentioned.
    dont create bugs in maps, like placing 500 knights or a trainingroom with size 50X50

    It was a bit foolish to make a map for 1.3 when the map maker was designed for 1.51 and onwards.
