Finding and Installing Maps for TripleA

1. All you have to do is start up TripleA (Yes that means run the program) and click on the "Download Maps" button.

2. A dialog box will open where you can add links to "Map Repositories" (sites that host maps.) Here's the best one to add:

The main link:
http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/tripleamaps/triplea_maps.xml


Once you've pasted in that link, you want to press "List Games"

3. Finally, select a map from the list, we recommend the WWII series and NWO, and then press "Install Map"

The maps link above comes from the very helpful TripleAMaps site run by Veqryn at http://tripleamaps.sourceforge.net/ ... where there are lots of pictures to preview some of the maps available.

=================================================

The following are backups .xml links for the Download Maps button:
http://downloads.sourceforge.net/proj ... pleamaps/triplea_maps.xml
http://sites.google.com/site/tripleae ... ipleA_Quality_Mods_EB.xml
http://sites.google.com/site/tripleawarclub/tripleawarmaps.xml
http://sites.google.com/site/veqryn/documents/TripleA_Maps.xml

=================================================

If you're having troubles with the Download Maps button, you could manually install the maps from https://sourceforge.net/projects/tripleamaps/ ... or just post here and we will help you out asap.

what is the error screen?

the manual way is really easy, and it is how everyone 'downloaded' maps for the 8 years before we added the in-game button

If you need to install the maps Manually, they are located at:
(Windows) C:\Documents and Settings\YourName\triplea\maps
(Mac) /home/user/documents/triplea/maps
(Linux) /home/user/triplea/maps
Simply download the zip and move it to that folder. No need to unzip if the zip file is properly set up.
Download the zips here:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/tripleamaps/files/maps/

I am having the same problem I did everything as directed but get this error when triple a loads. I am unable to load the WWII Global , Europe, or pacific maps but I am able to load other maps. Any one have any ideas ?

There is a ton more error message which i can post but i thought i would just try the begining bit.

Thanks

rabitmonky,

those error just mean that your current version of triplea "does not understand" some maps.

you need to be using the latest version of triplea in order to play those maps
go download triplea 1.5.1 or later

(or you can delete or move the map files, so that the error message no longer appears for your old version of triplea)

I have TripleA installed on my flash drive. However, if I try to download maps from the Download maps feature they download on the computer instead of on my flash drive. Any way I can takemy maps with me on my flash drive?

Ya, inside the TripleA directory on your flash drive is a folder called "Maps".

Just copy or move them to there.

(you can keep them as .zip also)

1.7.0.1 and 1.6.1.4 are both using the same lobby, if that's what you're talking about.

it is an experiment i am running, to see if we can have both version players in the same lobby without bung exploding

so far it is working because the "EV" column (engine version) says what version of triplea you are using
