    I don't know. If there is a heightmap in the texture files for it, you can use that for the map, but putting in all the static meshes would be a huge pain anyway.

    Light Effects

    I have followed all the necesary intructions i could find to set up a light effect, which seem to be simply choose it in the Lighting menu. The effect will begin whilst im in editor but when i build lighting or anything like that it stops flickering, and doesnt show in game either.

    Am i missing somat or do Light effects not actually work?

    Use a DynamicLight (Actors->Light->DynamicLight). Regular lights don't work for that.

    Any1 know if and how i can add music to a map i make, basically i wanna an mp3 to my map so that it plays whilst the map is running.

    Perhaps it could be set to the ambient sound of a trigger that can b activated to play the song, if so how to i get an mp3 to b used as a sound, infact how do i get anything other then the standard xmp sounds into my maps?

    If i cant have the music in map is it poss to have it set on the server, i know RaptorDobie made the XMP MUSIC server mutator but is there a way to change what song it plays on my map to an mp3?

    cheers

    some more info would help. Do you get that every time you load a map? start the game? Open UED? look at pr0n?

    It's true that u2 doesn't support mp3's, it uses ogg vorbis, a similar but open source format. There is a few format converters one of which is ogglame here :http://www.hitsquad.com/smm/programs/OggVorbisEncoder/

    Just add it to your level, or you could take an existing sound file and overwrite it.

    =======================================================
    WARNING: I guess I should warn you the resulting file screws with my video sometimes, maybe u2 wants a certain bitrate I don’t know.I may have had to exit xmp or reinstall I don't remember.

    You have to find the way to play music track in your map, like XMPMusic mutator does. You may need to do some scripting here, which may involve updating ini files manually and rebuilding md5 packages. And distribute your ogg file with your map.

    There is a way without scripting. Add MusicTrigger to your level, set it "Song" property to "Drakk Attack", Add Trigger actor near it, set it's event to "MusicTrigger" (because Default MusicTrigger's tag is "MusicTrigger"), set it's CollisionHeight and CollisionRadius to 4000, Set TriggerOnceOnly to True, InitialState to OtherTriggerTurnsOn. There is quick summary:
    Code:
    MusicTrigger
        MusicTrigger
            Song=Drakk Attack (your song's name)
        Events
            Tag=MusicTrigger
    
    Trigger
        Collision
            CollisionHeight=4000
            CollisionRadius=4000 (distance from which Trigger is activated)
        Events
            Event=MusicTrigger
        Object
            InitialState=OtherTriggerTurnsOn
        Trigger
            bInitiallyActive=True
            bTriggerOnceOnly=True

    I get this error on my map all the time now

    WHen in UnrealEd the map playtests fine etc but when i host it as an XMP map and join the server it doesnt allow me to select a class, there is no class highlighted uner F3 and then when the spawn time is up i get what can be seen in the attached Screenie. Two black marks on screen and the game freezes.

    I had this once before on a map and it was because i had not put a zoneinfo into the area, this time i have so now i have no idea what can be causing it.

    Can anyone help?
