I've got my map all finished, .pk3'd, put into the application data\openarena\baseoa folder. When I look for it, it's not there. My other pk3's are, but not this one? I've tried putting it into different folders (about every folder related to baseoa or maps), but no luck. I'll show some of the info here:

Folder name: 37ctf (contains everything that I'm putting into the .pk3)
Folder contents: levelshots, maps, scripts, sounds, textures (These are all folders)

The levelshot is a .jpg, did it the same way I've done it in every other pk3. It's in the levelshots folder.
The maps folder has 37ctfsf.bsp and 37ctfsf.aas. 900KB and 181KB.
The scripts folder has 37ctfsf.arena in it. See below for its contents.
Sounds and Textures folders are emtpy, as I didn't need those.

The .arena file looks like this:
Code:
{
map             "37ctfsf"
bots            ""
longname        "37ctfsf"
fraglimit       "10"
type            "ctf"
}

When I throw all the folders into PakScape, compile using .pk3 normal compression, the map doesn't show up in skirmish (under the Capture the Flag list). However, I can use \map or \devmap to play the map.

Is there something wrong with the bsp or what? I want this map to appear in the same place that the other ones are.

Try to use at least one bot (like sarge) and remove quotation around the fraglimit (10)

Code:
{
map             "37ctfsf"
bots            "Sarge"
longname        "37ctfsf"
fraglimit       10
type            "ctf"
}

Still no luck.

"Detailed" is nice, but if it gets in the way of clarity, it ceases being a nice addition and becomes a problem. - TVT

Odd. Maybe I've just got too many pk3s in there? I know sometimes when I start OA I see it "ignoring 1 arenas to make count divisible by 4". I'll take out some arenas and see what happens.

Edit: It told me that it was ignoring 1 arenas, so I deleted one pk3 (which I knew was a map) and the same thing is happening.

¿And what happens if you try to leave only game pk3's?

I don't understand, do you mean to take out every pk3 except the ones that are maps?

At least, putting every not-game pk3 on another folder and leaving baseoa folder with game pk3s and your map. Just for testing.
