    So I have created my menu photos following this guide and now I want to create the text that sits beside it.

    I have the text ready and with thanks to some friends have translated it for me, all saved with the correct arena_map_english.txt, arena_map_danish.txt, etc. What I want to know is where do I put them, especially for packing purposes?

    For reference, I use bspzip when packing files so I don't have the translated versions in the game directory right now, instead they are somewhere else.

    While I'm not 100% sure, I would guess the /maps folder (just how custom materials get packed into the /materials folder).

    Sorry for the necro-post, but this has not worked.

    I've been putting the following in my bspzip.txt file:
    Code:
    download/maps/dr_bank_beta07_english.txt
    C:\Users\Adam\Documents\Mapping\DR_Bank\To Pack\dr_bank_beta07_english.txt
    download/maps/dr_bank_beta07_finnish.txt
    C:\Users\Adam\Documents\Mapping\DR_Bank\To Pack\dr_bank_beta07_finnish.txt
    download/maps/dr_bank_beta07_italian.txt
    C:\Users\Adam\Documents\Mapping\DR_Bank\To Pack\dr_bank_beta07_italian.txt
    download/maps/dr_bank_beta07_norwegian.txt
    C:\Users\Adam\Documents\Mapping\DR_Bank\To Pack\dr_bank_beta07_norwegian.txt
    download/maps/dr_bank_beta07_romanian.txt
    C:\Users\Adam\Documents\Mapping\DR_Bank\To Pack\dr_bank_beta07_romanian.txt
    download/maps/dr_bank_beta07_spanish.txt
    C:\Users\Adam\Documents\Mapping\DR_Bank\To Pack\dr_bank_beta07_spanish.txt
    I'm not sure where else I am supposed to put these files, or am I packing them wrong?

    Don't include the "download" folder in the path, that is part of the path to the search root. The bsp zip is a search root too.

    IGNORE MY LAST COMMENT!! I deleted the 'download/' from all the file paths, at least I thought I did. When I loaded my bspztip.txt file I noticed I had not removed it from my _english version, so natually whenever I loaded my map in with Steam set in English, it would show the default arena text.

    But, after loading my map with Steam set to Finnish, I saw it worked! I've now updated my bspzip.txt file to correct the mistake and it works in English too!
