    is there a way to make the map's name read something besides it's filename?

    for example, if i wanted the loading screen and chalkboard to say "the great escape" as the maps name, while the filename is ctf_escape or cp_escape or similar.

    so far i've only been able to find how to add 'photos' to the info chalkboard, and how to add a quicklist picture. both of which are useful to know, but weren't really what i was looking for.

    It is impossible as of now. VALVe overrides theirs with built-in code or something.

    It ís possible. But only when you edit some of the system files (i tried it), and it's not possible to pakrat it.

    that breaks one of the conditions of keeping the name the same.....so its not really a correct response at all.

    i could perhaps get around it using the area for photos and instead putting chalkmarks there perhaps?


    e.g.

    cp_roundhouse
    +an image file with the word "rumble"
    -> displays as
    cp roundhouse rumble

    would that work?
