Can you open the archive without unzipping?

The "could not load ufos..." error simply means that you must unzip everything.

Yes, I can access the files in the archive file without decompressing first.

Apparently I didn't need to unzip "ufos", the pk3 just needed to be in the right dir.

textures used in that map will appear in the textures tab, if I then start a new map those textures remain there and I can use them.

A workaround would be to use some other browser for the textures and add them manually (by typing their path & name in)...

Could you show the content of the /base/textures folder, too?

Textures folder is full of, well, textures. Zillion small pictures in png and jpg formats in many subfolders as seen in the attached screenshot.

in the log file, I'm seeing hundreds of lines like these:
Code: [Select]
**-Message: Could not find image (parkbench.map) for prefab /misc/parkbench.map
**-Message: Could not find image (wood.map) for prefab /misc/wood.map
**-Message: Could not find image (crate6.map) for prefab /misc/crate6.map
**-Message: Could not find image (sunshade.map) for prefab /misc/sunshade.map
**-Message: Could not find image (pingpong.map) for prefab /misc/pingpong.map

.map? wtf? entire logfile attached.

Mattn made a commit yesterday which I hope was to fix the problem. Was it?

Remember the topic was "beginner questions" - how do I proceed to apply the changes he's made? I've installed uforadiant from getdeb repos.

I am not sure if the commit was about the problem, so that question was addressed to him, not to you. :)

Also, I really would like to help you getting started, and I could for sure if it was about mapping. Unfortunately I have no idea about most of the technical stuff, especially if non-Win. MCR or Mattn should be able to help.
