Can't run map that I just made in DLE? HELP please!

Post by homeyduh » Wed Mar 23, 2016 1:09 pm

This is the first bug I've had like this, and it's a bit irritating since I'm making a map and testing the map out is half the work, but I can't because I get an error when I try to open the map in Rebirth. I apparently can run the map in D2XXL, but I need it to run in Rebirth. I haven't but any new features or anything different in the map.

Here is the link to the map and a screenshot of the error I get. Let me know if anyone figures out what's wrong with it. Thanks!

Two issues here:
1) The level file name in ixion.msn ("ixion.rdl") doesn't match the filename of the level in the HOG file ("ixion ce.rdl").
2) Descent (except apparently D2X-XL) doesn't support spaces in filenames - it confuses it.

Renaming the level file to ixion.rdl appears to fix the problem.
