Dedicated Server Running Map Editor map save file location


Recommended Posts

Maps made in the map editor or local server will save in this folder:

C:\Program Files\MTA San Andreas\server\mods\deathmatch\resources

That's great. But when I ran a dedicated server on my computer and put in several more hours of work on a map and saved it, the map didn't show up in that folder. I can run the dedicated server and load it, but I can't find the file anywhere. I've searched my entire computer for it. Nothing with the map name anywhere.

I hope I am clear enough in my problem. The map should show up in the folder listed above, it should be somewhere. It is somewhere. I just can't find it.

Please help!

Found it.

It saves it to:

C:\Users\\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\MTA San Andreas\server\mods\deathmatch\resources\

I never would have thought to look there. An advanced search in Vista found it. Might be helpful for others in my situation.

It's due to the fact that Vista limits write-access for non-admin processes in Program Files directory. Files get written in that VirtualStore dir instead of real Program Files folder.

Either run the server application with administrative rights, install/move MTA to a different drive, or just bear with it.
