If you are playing only LT Maps:
Move along there is nothing to see here.
If you like to play base with certain mappacks or mods and the Tribes 1.40 Install (http://dfclan.org/1.40/Tribes%201.40.655.rar
), you can't or can you?
So far the maps, that do not work in the above distribution, are:
- OneSmallStep (OneSmallStep.ted is not converted to zip)
This is because these files have no [Mapname].zip file. (The .vol of these in the 1.30 Distribution were empty.)
To fix this create an empty zip-file named after the map (e.g. "Turbulence.zip" [22 bytes]) and copy it to the opencall directory (e.g. "c:\tribes1.40\opencall\" ).
Open call 2
This is, because nobody took care of converting the .ted and .vol files to .zip-Format and putting them into the distribution.
get a copy of the "Open Call 2" Maps, unpack each .ted and .vol file on its own and then zip them. All unpacked .vol files will be named [Mapname].zip.
All .ted files will keep the name [Mapname].ted!
If nobody beats me to it, I will create a fixed mappack containing the missing files. Anybody wants to host that pack? I am to lazy to register some webspace right now.
Since there are other map packs and mods out there, I think some of them might have the same problems with the 1.40 client as Opencall, so please leave a note in this thread, if you find this bug in other maps and mods.
