I followed the format shown in the help file, but it doesn't seem to work. This is what I CPed into the command prompt:
c:\ca3de-mdk\projects\ca3d-engine> cabsp games/deathmatch/maps/test.cmap games/deathmatch/worlds/test.cw
And I get the error:
'c:\ca3de-mdk\projects\ca3d-engine' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.
After that, I tried MANY variations, including entering the full filename of cabsp, using a "\" rather than a ">" after "ca3d-engine", entering the FULL paths for the 3 sections (cabsp, input .cmap, output .cw), etc. Still can't get it to work. Any help would be appreciated.
The CaBSP exe is right now named "CaBSP_win32_vc60_r" so the command should be:
Code: Select all
CaBSP_win32_vc60_r Games/Deathmatch/Maps/test.cmap Games/Deathmatch/Worlds/test.cw
Now you have to navigate a bit to get into the right directory.To get to the upper directory, use cd.. until you are finally in C:\, then use cd yourdirectoryname to get into a directory. C:\Ca3DE-MDK\Projects\Ca3D-Engine> is the right part you have to be in in order to run the compile command successfully.
You can also use a tool that creates a graphical surface for all Ca3DE tools so you dont have to use the cmd.exe anymore at all.

The tool is very easy to use and well documented. It makes work much easier and faster.
BTW: Welcome to the forums
This thing is great though, no more assing around with the command prompt! Why is it not just included with Ca3de?
It will be. However, integrating it with Ca3DE ideally requires to move all the command-line tools into a separate "hidden" location, making them harder to create for me and harder to use for the command-line folks. This in turn requires changes to the GUI tool...cannon_fodder1990 wrote:Why is it not just included with Ca3de?
As soon as I've sorted these issues out, the tool will be included with Ca3DE (Thrawns permission pending ).
by downloading i was led to these pages and now im already on my way with a huge huge project with your new engine and a few other editors because of file location problems.these answers tell me what i did wrong
