Name="The Asylum"
Author="Rielle Lacuna"
ImgFile=""

StartMap="01_original.map"
StartPos="PlayerStartArea_1"
/>

Name = "The Asylum"
Author = "Rielle Lacuna"
ImgFile="TrollFace.jpg"

MapsFolder = "maps/"
StartMap = "01_original.map"
StartPos = "PlayerStartArea_1"
/>

Hmm try that
I think it's the spaces inbetween the MapsFolder="stuffs" and thingies
You see it fast.
WRONG
Name="The Asylum"

CORRECTED
Name = "The Asylum"


If it doesn't work reply

you have got your map.hps file in the wrong place it should be in the maps folder with your map not with the .lang and .cfg file move the .hps file to your maps folder and it should work Smile
