  1. I downloaded the .zip and extracted it to my storage drive, but it’s not working.

    Your custom file browser isn’t seeing my rwmap files. I can browse the directory tree no problem, but it’s not seeing any of the map files, and I can’t select anything with the “Select Folder” button. I did manage to get it to find a file with no extension but it’s not letting me select that either.

    1. Maps have to be copied into the arkenforge launcher directory directly.

      The default path is as follows:
      C:\Arkenforge\ArkenforgeData\Maps

      Once extracted from the zip folder they can be copied into the above folder and they seem to show up and launch correctly.

      1. Yeah, I found that worked well, at least I think it did. At least the pack showed up in the launcher and opened. There were about a dozen or so tiles in the pack that had numbers in them,

  2. A) Arkenforge, update your documentation. Your instructions here: “https://arkenforge.com/ufaqs/how-do-i-use-community-packs/” are woefully either out of date or simply just incorrect. They don’t work! This is the link I was given on the download page as installation instructions.

    B) Steps for how to copy a pack of multiple maps into your Arkenforge map directory.
    1) Start powershell. Easiest way is Ctrl+R then type “powershell” into the field it brings up. Press enter.
    2) Start a powershell in Administrator mode. You’ll need this because Windows won’t allow a normal user like you to copy to a system directory like “Program Files”. To do this type “Start-Process powershell -Verb runAs”. This will bring up a new powershell window that is in Administrator mode.
    3) Copy all files in all subdirectories with an extension of “*.rwmap” into your Akenforge maps directory. The command will look something like this:
    Get-Childitem ” -recurse -filter “*.rwmap” | %{Copy-Item -Path $_.FullName -Destination ‘C:\Program Files (x86)\Arkenforge Launcher\MastersToolkit\Maps\’}
    You may need to alter the destination but that is the default unless you changed it.

    You’re done now, close all the windows and open Arkenforge.

    Hope this helps someone.
