Failing to test map on QL
:O ? ... using qlprism
This happens when I have a Q3 pk3 file in my quakelive/baseq3 directory.
Weird, heres what i did;
Made a map with gtkradiant 1.6.4
made a maps folder and put test1.bsp in it
Right click on the maps folder and click ( add to "maps.rar" )
Renamed maps.rar to test1.pk3
Ran quakelivedec with the following .bat -> quakelivedec.exe Test1.pk3 Test1enc.pk3
Put Test1enc.pk3 in quakelive/baseq3 and set to read only
Try to launch up the game on any map and get that error message from the screenshot
Am i missing something? and ty

I was under the impression that .pk3 is based on the .zip format, not rar.

Although you'd think QLdec would issue an error if there was a problem with the format of the initial file, shrug.
Yep it's zip.
quakelivedec doesn't actually try to interpret the file, it will just take whatever you give it and run the encoding. If you start with a zipfile rather than a rar, things should work much better!
I would also humbly recommend this as an alternative to quakelivedec: http://www.quakelive.com/forum/showt...p-File-Manager
Thanx both of you, switched to .zip and it works just fine.
