Index Screen After Compressing Maps

I was wondering if anyone ran into this issue. Everytime I download the Killling Floor SDK (open it and download updates). Then turn around write a .bat file to compress a map for my server map file redirect. Run the .bat (ucc compress ..\maps\<name>.rom) and create a .uz2 file. Cut a paste the file out out of my main kf map directory and place it in my general file kf map folder on my hardrive (tried leaving it too).

After I do all of that I can't run any map in KF. Its stays on index screen. Tried alot of other servers and verified cache. Nothing seems to fix it other then clean kf out and install fresh. There has to be others out their compressing files for server map re-direct.

I hope I made sense.

In your Steam\Steamapps\common\killingfloor\system directory delete the steam_appid.txt file. For some reason this gets created after using the SDK. I'm sure some people have created .bat files that delete this file after the editor is closed.
