Testing Shortcuts: Auto-Start Map
Man...... how many clicks does it take to get to the center of a .......map?
Anyone who has ever done extensive Server-Side modding has probably started their server so many times they could do it sleeping.
This little trick will save you thousands of clicks and tons of time.
1: Copy the DesertCombat shortcut to your location of choice.
2: Rename the shortcut to the title of the map you want to auto-start.
3: Right-click the short cut and select "Properties".
4: With the "Shortcut" tab selected, locate the "Target" field.
5: Enter this format but replace the bold italic letters with your own information.
"C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\BF1942.exe" +game DesertCombat +map BFE_TestingMap +restart 1 +hostServer 1
6: Click "OK" at the bottom of the properties window and test it out by double clicking the new shortcut icon.
You should now have a shortcut that takes you directly to your map.
I like to have one of these for each map I am working on. In fact I have a whole system of shortcuts that allows me to move around the uncompressed rfa structure with as few clicks as possible.
