How to play

Hey guys,
I've made a map using Map level editor,
When i try to load the map it loads black,
Also how to i create a spot for the level to end?
Also i can only see my map in one perspective? Have i done something terribly wrong?

RE: How to play

Well, that should work.
However, just to be safe, try giving it the name "start1" or something, then going into your "custom_story_settings.cfg" and change "StartPos=""" to "StartPos="start1"".

Also, maybe a very stupid question, did you place lights?
You might also want to try placing a box-light on the whole map, just to see if you spawn inside the actual part you built.
