this is a short tutorial on how to fix the viewpoint bug, how to stop your screen getting whiter when using the sdk and how to name n test your map. Also, what to do when a ultra rare bug happens to your map.

Posted by on - Basic Mapping/Technical

viewpoint bug: when you open the killing floor sdk, you might find your screen is entirely white! to counter this go on view, viewports,clossall. then go on view and viewports again but this time press configure. choose the view configuaration you want. now you can see.

white monitor screen: when you open the killing floor sdk, your whole computer screen turns whiter right? well simply create a shortcut for the killing floor sdk, right click and go on properties and then in the target box add this on the end of it: -nogamma
so it looks like this: "C:\Documents and Settings\elite\Desktop\Killing Floor Main\System\KFEd.exe" -nogamma

how to name your maps and test it:
when you save your map you must make sure it is written like this: KF-[YOURMAPNAME] becuase it will not run correctly, or not run at all. Then press build all. you are ready to test it.

there are two ways to test it. in the editor there is a joystick button next to the arror with the question mark. click that to luanch your map. text will come up but it will luanch your map.
the other way and my preferred method is to simply minimize your editor and fire up killing floor. if you follwed all this you should find it in the map list :)

DON'T FORGET: you must insert a player start before you test!!!

there is a bug i have ecountered before, the box was made a incorrect size and it refused to be moved so i had to do it manually and when subtracting it wuold make a little box. the only way to fix this is to delete your map and start again.. trust me, this happened to me and no one had posted a fix so watch out what you press.

peace.

Yep, but I could claim that I did that on purpose, to not be mistakenly associated with certain German groups, most ppl like to associate all Germans automatically with... ;)

You are welcome :)
Only bad thing is that Tripwire updates that particular list once a update to the game has been released, so it can take weeks or even months. That is not a very clever solution in my opinion! Anyway KF has a lot of connection issues lately, hope to see a patch soon.
