How to use a custom map [Tutorial]
« on: 12 05, 2018, 06:16:04 pm »
First of all, you'll need to download some new maps from anywhere.
- Here's a black and white map (.jpg file): https://i.imgur.com/eH3JtZU.jpg
- Here's a dark green map (.png file): https://i.imgur.com/NULW4im.png

To download them, enter the link and press right click on the picture, then click 'save image as...' and choose any location, then press 'save'.

Now go to this location: \MTA SA\mods\deathmatch\resources\CITradar\images


Put the map in the folder called 'images' and name it something comfortable. For example 'test'.
Now, look if the picture is .png or .jpg

To know which one your picture is, press right click on it, then press 'properties' and it will tell you the file type.


After you know what the file name is, go ingame and type '/settings'. In the search bar, type 'radar image' and this should show up.



Now type test.png if the file type is .png or type test.jpg if the file type is .jpg
After you've done so, press F11 again and it will be applied.

Video tutorial:


Keep in mind that you can always use the default maps again. Use 'map-hd.png' for the default HD map, and 'map.png' for the lower quality default map.

@OhhKarim
I know, I deleted it a long time ago because I recorded it when I had a bad PC so it had low FPS. I'll make another video later, in the meantime you can still use the text tutorial.
