Adding a "Readme" to your map
This is how to add a readme file to your map before you zip it with WINRAR
first make a new folder on your desktop
now open notepad and type whatever you want about your map and were to extract it to and any information you think would be useful to the person playing it
now when you have all the info you want in notepad select file then save as then save it to the folder you made on your desktop..save it as .txt and name it readme(or whatever you want)
now put a copy of your map in the folder also
(now you have to have winrar installed) open the folder you made on the desktop
you should have this in that folder
"yourmapname".rfa and the readme file
now click on the readme file then hold down Ctrl and select the "yourmapname".rfa ..now both should be selected
now right click on either one and select add to "??????".rar
now it should start packing both up...when its done you need to name it correctly...so right click on the new .rar file and select rename and name it whatever you want ( usually the map name ) now your map and read me are ready for DL by everyone...
