Warning.png You should update your zone file whenever you have to add new assets, or your previous map gave errors since assets were missing.

The Zones Files (Treyarch now has 2 files) are as follow:

C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty - World at War\zone_source\mp_yourmapname.csv

and

C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty - World at War\zone_source\localized_mp_yourmapname.csv

Those 2 files are normally created when using the 'CREATE MAP' button on the Launcher and after a compile:

Warning.png If you do not use the 'CREATE MAP' button on Launcher then when Compiling the Launcher should ask you to create the missing Zone Files. Sometimes it does not create the Localized_mp_yourmapname.csv and you will spawn inside your gun in that case!!

After you have updated your zone file, you should always rebuild the Fast Files.
