Hello I hope everybody's having a good day. I have a problem that i can't solve can somebody help me? I followed Draconisaurus's videos on making a level, I followed the videos step by step. When I made the level I put it in Trespasser CE data folder. When I load the level all i get is a blank screen I've tried over and over making new levels and trying different things, but all i get is the same black screen. I've tried using Trespasser Twilight but the same thing happens. The really weird thing is the level works just fine in TresEd I'm stumped on this one. Does anyone know what causes this? :?:

It sounds like you are using the "New Game" button and not the level loading cheat? And did you remember to import Anne? ;)

Thanks for the reply! I did import anne, and imported all the files to make the level. I still get a black screen with a paper airplane looking thing. I did use Trespasser CE, I didn't try using the retail version though.

Ok I tried using regular Trespasser, I used the level loading cheat to load my level. The same thing happened, the black screen :| . I tried importing dinosaurs, I thought it would make the level load but that didn't help either. Maybe I'm missing something, I'll try making another level and see what I did wrong.

Could you upload your level on a fileshare site such as box.com? We could look at it and see if it's your level files or something else.

There's absolutely nothing in that level... no wonder it won't load, it doesn't even have the minimum required elements.

Dylan, machf says the level is empty. Can you see the objects you think you imported in TresEd? If so you might have multiple versions of the level running around. Be sure you're using the level-select cheat to load your level by-name.
Also, a simple test, watch your files' filesize when you use GeomAdd to import, and make sure the directories you're working with match up. If the filesize doesn't increase, nothing was imported.

My guess is, you have duplicate level files on your harddrive. One is being updated in TresEd, but it isn't the one you have inside the data folder. Do what Drac somewhat suggested; search your harddive for your level name n' see if duplicates show up in the search.

Thanks

Ok, so I tried it again with a new computer and reloaded all the programs like tresED, Geomadd, etc... I tried to make the level again and I get the same blank screen. The level files do have 2 KB to 1,095 KB so I know that I was successful with importing all the necessary files. I think I'll put this on the back-burner for now, and just enjoy Trespasser and the fan levels and TresCom. Thanks so much for all the responses though! :ebiggrin: :D ...Ill definitely let you know about my progress if I get it to work...

Thanks Dylan
