Map making: 8.3 naming convention

Postby Lightfoot » Sun Aug 06, 2017 2:08 pm

It is *HIGHLY* recommended that all maps be named using the 8.3 (Romeo) naming convention.

Long file names (Joliet) are not supported in the Interstate '76 or Arsenal Pack editors due to a hard coded 13 character limit for the .TER file reference.

Any map with a .TER file name longer than 12 total characters (8 for the name, 1 for the . and 3 for the extension) will cause the map to crash.

(See: Sanctuary for Nitro Pack)

Good luck.
