move to the area you want to see on the map, while in the level editor scroll down the right side, and click the 'set camera before spawn'

Ok, thanks! 1 more question. Is there any other cobble spline apart this from st.vith, which has empty stripe in the middle (I bet to imitate the snow)?

Any chance I can get my hands on a uncompiled artillery.pyc?
Either the decompiler can't read it, or if it can then the file has erros, which I can't seem to fix.
I do bad things to the BF2 engine.

Why I can't find in the editor some undergrowth textures, for example - grass_mix3_wehe?

It uses the PanzerIVH texture.

Yeah, already solved with a little help from Matt Baker ;)

Hello guys, how can I change the name of a faction in BF2?

Another one, how can I edit the map description?

Faction names are likely to be found in the localization files, unless you plan to put in a new one.

Map description is also in the localization files unless it's a custom map. You'll find the references in levels/mapname/info/mapname.desc

Yes, I looked into Localization files. I found out that it is in English.txt, and I changed all "USMC"s to the faction name I want for it to appear, but the faction's name is still USMC in the kit select menu.

What now?

Pretty sure that that text is captured from the localization files. But just to be sure, show a picture of what you mean.

In a tutorial I read I should change the English.txt and maybe English_patch.txt in this directory:

EA Games/Battlefield 2/mods/*my mod*/localization/english

I changed all USMC's in those .txt's to the faction name I want it to appear, but it still shows up as USMC on the spawn screen:

,

...or is it not even possible to change faction name? Do I have to create one from scratch?  :P

And also I have came up with another question. Can someone tell me the method to changing the background movie? Is there a special format that it needs to be in, or a specific length of the clip?

Is there anyone who used Bink Video Converter before? How can I convert to .bik? It doesnt appear to be on the list.

EDIT: oh, nevermind. got it.
