Batch conversion of map files

Postby Senshi » Wed Oct 28, 2009 6:48 pm

Hi guys.

I need to create a minimod for Battlegroup42 and thus I need to create the level patchfiles with the proper MapID for it. Now, I'm way too lazy to convert every map one by one as that would be a real pain in the ... as BG42 has 134 maps...Anyone got smart ideas how to accelerate that conversion

If it's unclear what I mean: I mean the basic "patchfile" in most mods levels folder without a patch-tag (e.g. mods\BG42_WGP\...\levels\el_alamein.rfa) that only has to include the Menu/Init.con with the proper MapID.

Well, that kinda still would be the "long" tour, wouldn't it? :(

I guess most mods never have that many maps (included with the mod) so it was never an issue or something people needed.. ?
