Each map has all the necessary subfolders (including MAPS, SYSTEM, TEXTURES, etc...) that must be copied to the appropriate folders in your stored copy of the game on your xbox. Ex.
F/GAMES/Rainbox Six 3/
Copy everything in MAPS to the F/GAMES/Rainbox Six 3/MAPS folder.
Copy everything in TEXTURES to the F/GAMES/Rainbox Six 3/TEXTURES folder.

. These are 100% Working maps.
Avalaunch v0.49.1 can download and install these for you also.Q: Do I have to use a cracked or pirated [read illegal] version of the game to use these maps?A:
No. Xbox-Scene does not support or condone illegal xbox activities. The game only has to be on the hard drive (or added to a backup DVD copy) to support the additional maps.Q: How do I use these maps?A:
Load your copy of RS3 and these maps will be available under the multiplayer system link modes SHARPSHOOTER and SURVIVAL. TEAM also. There are one or two so far that will work under MISSION or TERRORIST HUNT.Q: If I have a copy of the maps and who I am playing with doesn't, can they use my maps?A:
All players wanting to play MUST have the copy of that particular map on their game.Q: How do I make my own maps?A:
The map editor is included with Raven Shield on the PC. Please do not ask where to get this. Buy the game, you can not D/L it legally. A link I saw posted on M.A.P.'s site: RvSMaps.com
. Read up and maybe this will help ya. However I believe there are tweaks and adjustments you must make to have it work completely on the xbox.
