This download is the only one we have for them, Kate: MLB Map Sources


It will probably be the one that you already have too. Do you have a link for Marko's old website?

Yep, the three of them, Marko, Lowlife and Bob Leroux, seem to have just disappeared, the website closed in 2007 gruebel.gif .

Here's a link to their old website archive:
Game Design Online

Some downloads work, some don't, unfortunately. There's mapping tutorials there too nicken.gif .

Their maps are also mentioned on this mapping website, which is in the French language:

This is the same case with a majority of Rtcw SP mappers too; they just disappeared one day and never returned. gruebel.gif

On the positive side of things, at least we have the Wayback Machine that Gman linked to, so some websites/content can still be accessed.

Hi there,
For all MLB maps there should be the source files. I guess we at TWT have them in our repository (at least we did until the last server hack and website breakdown). If you simply need the map file you can generate this by decompiling the bsp. We have a tool for this and explanations on our website.

I love your passion for this game. I wish I would have the time for finishing up some unpublished work....
Teuthis
Just out of curiousity, you want the map file for just having it for your website or because of mapping reasons. I just saw that 99% of TWT download content disappeared after transition of the website. It took me days to upload all my prefabs and tutorials there. I don't have the time to do this again but If someone feels strong setting up a download section somewhere I would be happy to donate my private mapping repository. I collected tutorials since the RTCW beach map was published. I have hundrets of tutorials, made useful screenshots/pdf wherever I thought the content is useful, made hundrets of prefabs and wrote tutorials myself on scripting (some are published, most not). All I would ask for is to always provide them free for download. Nobody is allowed to make a dime with this content

That's a very kind offer, Teuthis. We could upload your files at "Wolffiles", all sorted into different catergories, but with your name attached to them.

For example:


Teuthis mapping tutorials - Wolf: ET

Teuthis map prefabs - Wolf: ET


...and so on.

I was on the "TramDesign" website yesterday, Ron, to try and find a way of contacting Marko. Who's posts did I see there? The one and only Vicpas nicken.gif .

Perhaps he knows a way of contacting, Marko, mate, do you think you could ask him for Kate?

nope i dont get any email from you , i looked at yesterday and this morning but still nothing , so this failed

I think you are going wrong way trying to decompile map, as it will not fix your issue. It will only generate a .MAP file for you, but these files are already available (on wolffiles and other sites) in better quality than a decompiled .BSP.

What you are missing is .PCX file and few TGA files for Temple, which were used for terrain blending (textures gradient between eachother).. Some MLB map sources include these files and some dont.
These files were used in a method, where mapmaker generated whole terrain in softwares like EasyGen. These softwares also generated PCX files for you.. Meaning that you cant make them manually, or maybe you can but noone knows how it works.
So unless you somehow rebuild whole Temples terrain in Easygen, and adjust it to the map, you cant have these files.
I already explained this on SD forums to Smiley - https://forums.splashdamage.com/t/mlb-egypt-temple/150918

.. There are some Temple recompiled version tho.. like the WF_MLB_Temple.. I wonder how they did it.

Strange, just send it again, no error message. You will also find the decompiler in the files i provided to Wolf Enstein. I recommend the BAT compiler tool over the little programm, simply because it works more reliable to me.

Well, you can easily retexture the map and then you donˋt need the pcx file. These pcx method is quite historic and was only used in the very first maps, but is not used in the last 10 years. So retexturing is not a bad solution

i just got the program
thanks you very much

You're welcome. I didn't know that he was a "Senior Member" on those forums either, but that simply means he's been signed up there since the early days of the forums (around 2003). He's not actually a Splash Damage employee, just to clear up any misunderstandings.

I spoke to a "Wolf: ET" mapper, his name is Double Dragon, over on Youtube and I asked him about the ".pcx" file for "MLB Temple". Apparently, according to him, this map never had one.

He explains why that is the case, in the comments section of this video he published:
