    Well, I think just having newest patch is a good idea. And you dont need map bypass anymore.

    hmm this problem has occurred so much that maybe I should consider adding it to my moderation tool.

    ok can you guys help me along, what are the common causes for a map not loading

    1) names too long
    2) name has odd symbols
    3) map file is too big (lan limit breached)
    4) requires new version/expansion of warcraft
    5) ....

    also what is the lan limit for a map size, and what is the name length limit?

    all good questions::)

    i cant test it too well right now but for my map it would not load at 53k, reducing the size to 17k made it loadable. I don't know exactly when it becomes unloadable but it is between there i guess.

    first off thanks for the help

    you can reduce a map size by cutting down on the units and doodads on the map when it loads

    this is automatically done with some map optimizers that turn doodads and unit placement, into triggers that activates after the map loads
