NOTE: Before reading this guide, determine where your World at War root directory is located.

Non-Steam Install: C:\Program Files (x86)\Activision\Call of Duty World at War\

Steam Install: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Call of Duty World at War\

For the rest of this guide, it will be assumed that the word "root" refers to the appropriate installation path shown above.

Say 'Yes to all' if Windows asks you about replacing files when dragging files into your root directory.

Preparation

You will need to download nazi_zombie_oldtown_src.zip (2.3MB). Keep this .zip in a safe place so you can find it each time you want to start a new map.

Using WinRAR or another zip extraction program, extract the nazi_zombie_oldtown_src folder from the zip into any directory on your computer.

Next, open Text Editors. Go to Search -> Find in Files (Shortcut: Ctrl+Shift+F). In the directory box, locate your nazi_zombie_oldtown_src folder. In my case, I put in root\src\nazi_zombie_oldtown_src.

In the "Find what:" box, enter:

nazi_zombie_oldtown

In the "Replace with:" box, enter your new map name. In my case, I am entering:

nazi_zombie_testmap

In "Filters:" box, enter:

*

Here is a picture of what my Find window looks like:

Now press the 'Replace in Files' button. This will replace all instances of the oldtown mapname with your new mapname. Once the replace finishes, it will tell you how many instances it replaced. Press OK and minimize or close Notepad++.

Renaming files

We're almost done. Now we need to manually rename any files that contain the words 'nazi_zombie_oldtown'. Here is a list of the files that need to be renamed:

bin\Launcher\map_settings\nazi_zombie_oldtown_patch.cfg
bin\Launcher\map_settings\nazi_zombie_oldtown.cfg
bin\Launcher\map_settings\nazi_zombie_oldtown_geo.cfg
bin\Launcher\map_settings\nazi_zombie_oldtown_load.cfg
map_source\nazi_zombie_oldtown_load.map
map_source\nazi_zombie_oldtown_patch.map
map_source\nazi_zombie_oldtown.map
map_source\nazi_zombie_oldtown_geo.map
mods\Der_Frost (FOLDER)
mods\Der_Frost\Der_Frost.files
raw\clientscripts\nazi_zombie_oldtown.csc
raw\clientscripts\nazi_zombie_oldtown_amb.csc
raw\clientscripts\createfx\nazi_zombie_oldtown_fx.csc
raw\images\nazi_zombie_oldtown_ingame_map.iwi
raw\images\menu_map_nazi_zombie_oldtown.iwi
zone_source\nazi_zombie_oldtown_load.csv
zone_source\nazi_zombie_oldtown_patch.csv
zone_source\nazi_zombie_oldtown.csv

Final Note

Now that you have renamed every single instance of "nazi_zombie_oldtown" to your new map name, go inside your nazi_zombie_oldtown_src folder and select all the folders inside*. Copy and paste the group into your*root' directory.

Done!
