Recently, I have had a few errors in Guerilla when trying to open up basically everything (I've been trying to open up 2 bitmaps). When I try to open it I get this in a box that says:

Quote: ERROR

Couldn't read map file './guerillabeta.map'
you need to set your working directory.

If anyone can, can you please help me? Btw, I searched all of the forum's posts (with search) and I get no results.

That doesn't really help (I already know what directory means). My Guerillia directory is D:\Program Files\Microsoft Games if that helps finding the directory (btw, I can't see guerilliabeta.map file anywhere in the Halo CE directory, I still need help). (AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO POST IN CAPS.)

The HEK tools need to be in the Halo custom edition directory, so for me:

C:\Program FIles\Microsoft Games\Halo Custom Edition\

Install the HEK tools there or just move them.

That and you can only open up tags in the C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Halo Custom Edition\Tags folder.

Ty man, that fixed my problem up MASSIVELY .

EDIT: So, if I used "Save As" for my bitmap that I used from the Tags folder into my Data\Levels\mapname\bitmaps, it would save correctly?
