I am VERY new to custom maps. My Map-Maker has gone onto hiatus and Now my clan can not use the custom maps since the 2.8.5 update.

How can I make my custom maps 2.8.5???

As I said I am a inexperienced player at mapmaking but can figure it out.

You need to add the custom map to the tours.ini file in your AA server. The tours.ini is a complex file, but a little cut and paste and you're golden. Here's how you do it:

Go to the very bottom of the file and copy this into your text editor:

* Tour: "Authorized User Created Maps" (30) - Mission: "Nightfight" (56)
MissionTitle(56)=Nightfight
MissionMBSTitle(56)=Nightfight
MissionImage(56)=None
MissionImageDisabled(56)=None
MissionMapFilename(56)=nightfight_Sp3xops
MissionNMLFilename(56)=/

Change all the 56s to 57s and replace the map name with the name of your custom map:

* Tour: "Authorized User Created Maps" (30) - Mission: "Custom Map" (57)
MissionTitle(57)=Custom Map
MissionMBSTitle(57)=Custom Map
MissionImage(57)=None
MissionImageDisabled(57)=None
MissionMapFilename(57)=custom_map.aao
MissionNMLFilename(57)=/

Add the above to the end of the tours.ini file. Then one more thing. Go to this line:

[Authorized User Created Maps]
NumMissions=56

Change that to 57.

Save it all and restart your server. Then you can load the map with a console command. It won't show up in the mission menu, but the server will run it.

It works until you reboot your server, after that it downloads a new tours.ini from AA masterserver. Thanks for this [TOS Violation] addition.

I've never heard of a server automatically downloading an ini file. Sorry.
Save a backup copy of your tours.ini and drop it in after each update.

There is a way to prevent the overwrite by editing the server.ini file so look for that. Sorry I don't know the exact scripting to add to cause the desired change.

When we try to use our custom maps in the last cpl of days we keep getting and error that says the account is not qualified. Could you help with the figuring why.
We have tried the answer listed in this post and it worked before, but it does not apear to work now.

okay i followed the directions about the tours ini however when i move the server there i get a message when it reloads saying authorization failed player is not qualified for this mission.. why is it doing that?? i have all training and stuff so im not sure if it has something to do with punkbuster or the server being an honor server...
