Map hosting now Easy on bzfmaps.net!

Post by nn » Thu Dec 13, 2007 8:26 pm

Hi,

I realized people want there map up asap so I have created a system on how I host a map.


How to host a map on bzfmaps.net

1. Make a map, a config file for that map (.conf) and a text file if you have notes you want me to know about the map.

2.

Rename all files to the same name for example lets say you were hosting a map called bob cat the files names will look like this:

bob-cat.bzw
bob-cat.conf
bob-cat.txt

There must be no spaces in files name! Replace a space with a dash.

3. Upload your files

Now click on the link below and submit your map files there.

The .conf is the configuration file. It would contain the settings and options for the server.
