Custom maps online apparently turn black?

Post by Nail_Bombed » Sun Mar 06, 2011 7:08 pm

This may have been addressed elsewhere, in which case I apologise in advance, but I keep getting people chatting to me online saying that that maps I load up come up black? On my screen nothing is wrong, full colour no probs. Can someone explain to me what is wrong?

Those people don't have the maps that you are loading. Everyone in a room needs the map in order to see it.

That's awkward. Now I know why people were quitting mid-game. No more online mappage for me then. Though I don't see why Team17 couldn't code the game to actually send the full map...

Probably because maps are around 3 MB. :(

yeah that sux
3MB or not, It could start dling while in lobby (don't remember when exactly we do select map) so waiting time is decreased
And nowaday what's 3MB ?
they could do some central high speed server (smt similar to what WA has) but won't happen :(
