MapTap 2.5 Now Available!


After a lot of work and planning, MapTap 2.5 is now available.

So, what does 2.5 do that previous versions didn’t?

Well, firstly, it can solve MANY Steampipe issues.

It manages mods, maps and mappacks downloaded from (it almost certainly won’t work with archives downloaded from other websites).

If you install a mod, it will create the correct type of gameinfo.txt file (and backup the original of course!) and often this makes the mod work with no effort from you.

To be honest, that’s the big difference. There are lots of smaller changes, but unless you are really interested in bug fixes and changes to how the code works, they are not important.

Now, we have tested this version a lot, BUT we can’t test it on hundreds of different systems, so if you encounter an issue with the application PLEASE tell us. You can either email me directly: or use the Contact page on the site.

If you have an issue with a particular archive/file, PLEASE use the REPORT button in the application. I check the report every week and see if archives are broken.

Head over to the application’s dedicated page to learn more and download the latest version.

So, here we are. Spring is in the air, daylight is getting longer.

Some of you, me included, may have a few days off from work or study, so that’s always cool.

What gaming plans do you have this month?

Black Silla Assault

for Half-Life

An abandoned horror mod.

It only contains one map.

I have no idea if there was ever going to be a story.

WON and Steam versions available, but the Steam didn’t work on my Steam installation but the WON did!


Mods like these are still being added because the stated objective of the site is to list and review EVERY SINGLE SP map and mod released, no matter how terrible they are.
