OK so i made a map with proper uvw's, portals, and made sure there was nothing wrong with the map.
But when I try to convert the .ass file into a .scenario file using h2tool, the file is not created and I get this weird error.




Can anyone help me out? Thx.

Your not doing some thing that is required for the map to be made, in this case I'm guess you never linked your BSP to the b_levelroot.

Portals are used by Halo 2 to create separate zones within a single level. This allows the game engine to be more efficient in rendering assets as well as allowing unique background sounds and sound environments in different areas.

Once a level reaches a certain size, it will require portals due to the amount of data included in the levels tag files. Portal planes are placed in your 3D editor and must have the +portal material applied to the faces to be exported properly.

I have already had this error, when your map has too many face

The gate(portal) has to cross your map +portal in material editor

Definition 0 is with the linkup with teh LEvelroot and the LEvel

Definition 1 could be the sky

yes i have a +sky material, but it is applied to only 1 polygon at the very top of the map. does it have to actually be applied to a box shape to work?

Post pics of the map, this will really help in seeing what's up. Also your positive the bsp is linked properly and that the root and sky mat are named properly?

Here's the outside of the level, portals, b_levelroot, and map are shown. All you see right now is outside of the map.



Here is proof of linkage to b_levelroot. Portals are the yellow and black planes.



This is what the map itself looks like.



This shows the one face with +sky applied to it.

yes, there are materials applied to all faces. its just hard to see them b/c of crappy in-max lighting
