Trouble with uploading map

Post by mattferro95 » Sun Apr 21, 2013 10:59 pm

Hello,

I just recently finished designing a Castle Vox map, but I can't find it on my computer. In fact, I can't find any of the maps when I search for them on my computer. I can open them in Castle Vox app, however.

Could it be that I'm using the demo version? And if so, can I transfer the map I made on the demo version to the actual app after I buy it?

What operating system are you on?

The answer to your 2nd question is, yes

The latest Mac OS X hides the library folder, inside which maps are stored.

Easiest way to get there is while you're playing a Castle Vox game, go to the Map menu and select the Open Map Folder menu command.

Alternatively, when using the Finder, you can type Shift-Command-G, and activate the "Go to Folder" command, which can also be found in the "Go" menu, if you're afraid of keyboard shortcuts. Once activated, type "~/Library/Application Support/Vox/" and you'll be taken to the Vox support files directory. Everything you need to tweak Vox can be found there including the "Maps" and "Themes" folders. If you're feeling adventurous, then try opening one of the .voxb map files in a text editor. You can edit them manually, if you wish, but always remember to create a backup first, just in case you accidentally break something.

Thank you for your answers. Yes I found a Terminal command to make the library folder visible again.
