Bugs/Issues Known

  • The map you downloaded doesn't appear when you click on "Refresh Maps" :

    • Solution 1 : Try to select another extract method : settings->Extract Method->Powershell Method or Batch File Method, and download a map.
    • Solution 2 : You need to go to the map folder and extract the files of the .zip file (ex : speed_jump_rings_3_by_dmc.zip, lucid_rings.zip), see the video linked in Tutorial.
  • If the path you put contains "//" just after the disk name (ex : C://RL maps/), you wont be able to load a map

    • Just put only one "/"
  • If your game crashes when you click on download

    • This is probably because the place where you have created the maps folder need administrator permission
  • If there is accents, arabic or special characters in the path, it tells you "The directory you entered doesn't exist"

    • You have to find a path that doesn't contain these characters .
  • If your game crashes when click on "Refresh Maps"

    • Maybe because your maps folder contains other things, you need to dedicate the maps folder just for the workshops maps and nothing else
