    I've made my map entirely, compiled. but how can I test it? i've tried the file> run map thingy, but it just took me to the main menu. I tried to start a new server... but it wouldn't let me start it=P

    Any help? I can provide more detail if necessary. Thx

    Open up your console, and type "map [yourmapname]"

    is your map named:

    my map
    my_map

    because for me it doesn't work without the _ instead of blank spots

    There is probably something wrong with your map.

    A couple of times when I've made a few map changes and tested a map it wont work. So i had to revert the changes.

    You don't have to have it. Maps will run without it. And I have even seen some maps that don't have it for their release version. However, its one of those nice things for players, so they can know what type of map they are going to play.
