So I saw that the terrain elevation and painting was going to be improved in the next update, so i used the beta build to open the game and edit my maps with those changes on.

After I was done editing the maps in the beta mode, i tried opening the map i in the regular game build, and it gave me this error

  2. open the file in the regular non beta build

The map would open normally without problems

it’s not letting me put the map file in here

I think it’s only logical that beta maps are supported in the beta build, until that build becomes the current version as those assets are not available in the current build and so these maps cannot be used with the current build. I hope you made a backup first of those custom maps before editing with beta build.

After things from the beta end up in the latest build, probably you will have to make those adjustments using that build’s editor again. I don’t know if there are other ways around this, maybe someone else knows (I don’t create custom maps).

so my map is ■■■■■■


Sadly I fear this is the case, even if you would be able to undo all changes made to your custom map.
Next time make sure you have the basic custom map backups.

worked 4 days on this map

Scenarios created/edited on the pup build may indeed become uncompatible with the live version of the game.

As the update off which the pup build is based on gets released, your pup scenario should become compatible with the live patch again.


Ok so, can I start working on a map in the beta branch, so I can use it after the update comes out ? or will that version not work in the updated version neither ?? (the fixes to the terrain painting and elevation were so good for luducruis maps)
