Start reading the errors and fix them one by one?

In your map folder there is a <map name>_scenario.lua for. In there are certain paths that most probably need to be changed.

wouldnt it be easier to ask one of the admins here to pull that older map down?......it clearly was someone's simple test map back in 2012 and it doesnt even have any downloads or play time.......its called Skull Island. My map is ready to go and I have a good group of people waitin to play it. I tried fixing the 4 different paths and it seems to be stilling giving me the same errors.
