    Damnit. Nothing a slightly sketchy free file hosting site cannot fix though:

    Map
    TGA
    Winter TGA

    Isiloon can you update the OP with the map files?

    The mapfile called Decline29 that I posted for the game Decline29take2 after I said I'd host another game called Decline 29 because the first game posted in the thread Decline Twenty Nine mysteriously vanished from llamaserver?

    You only chose to use a different map to confuse me, follower of Eurmal.

    Hmm. There's a space in the name, try replacing it with an underdash instead? Didn't see that earlier.

    EDIT: Tried it myself, it works only when you leave the space in the name unchanged ("Decline29 Winter.tga"). All 3 files should be in your maps folder. Did you rename anything? Does it work for anyone else?

    Yes.

    I merely need time to set up the mod, find the game on llamaserver, and do things.

    NO. Not such a piece of shit map. On top of it, I am starting in a similar spot as in a former decline game - FAR away from any farms. Also look at this stupid farm concentration. I am refusing to play this.

    When opening the turn I get a ParseMapFile 5 error failed to load map Decline29.map :(

    EDIT: Yeah, I agree that the farms are pretty concentrated in one spot, but I didn't want to complain :)

    EDIT2: To clarify, the map itself worked fine, I can play a test game ok, but I get this error when loading the turn and have no idea what it means.

    Oh for crying out loud. Does the map problems look fixable? It "should" work simply by dropping all files in the map folder without changing any names or extensions. I don't particulary care about the farm distribution but can reroll if people insist (on the understanding that it shouldn't take a week resubmitting pretenders, mind).

    I figured out how to get it to work, hang on team I'll save you.


    https://drive.google.com/open?id=1ZutXDi5WYHOMqz-SlPT7cXB9os1JNZ60

    download this and stick into your maps folder and then I will have my key logger on your PC it will work because I renamed the map to what it's supposed to be, I guess Infinitum dodgy file sharing service (why didnt you use google drive srsly) renamed the files to be edgy and it broke them, so I renamed them to what it should be and it works

    Because SteamedBabies is somewhat large and have those giant lakes on it?

    Aye? What'd it change? The file names look identical at a glance.

    I guess you're not a programmer?

    first letter change to uppercase and replace the hyphen with a white space. I guess the case sensitivity works in some cases and in some it doesnt, which would explain why people could load map, but Llama can't process it.

    e.g. Llama is case sensitive but dominions isnt?

    Heck no. The space and odd capitalizaton is what came out of cartographic revision though, so dunno if I can blame the sketchy file hosting site for that. I don't get computers. OH WELL. Did Isiloon access your porn folder and webcam it work?

    You sir are a hacking genius. I like also how you realized we were not capable of capitalizing the map files on our own and helpfully provided the trojans map files yourself, thank you. It all works for me now.

    Isiloon managed to get a keylogger on my PC, got a good look at my financial situation, and started a relief fund because I'm fucking poor.

    That required a bit of time.
