MapTap 2.5 Beta RC1 is Now Available

Single Player First Person Shooter Maps and Mods for Half-Life 1, 2 and Episodes 1, 2 and 3

This beta version has a few new features.

First and foremost you can use it to install AND run mods. The ability to install mods has been available since 2.3 bt you had to open Steam to run them – not any more.

Secondly, but actually just as importantly, MapTap now automatically updates older mods to run in Steampipe! Yes, that’s right. Take an older mod from PP that doesn’t have the correct gameinfo.txt format and MapTap should do it for you. No messing about with text editors and copying and pasting etc.

Of course, it might not work every time, but it’s a darn sight better than having to do it manually.

MapTap: Beta Release 2.4.0 RC11

Single Player First Person Shooter Maps and Mods for Half-Life 1, 2 and Episodes 1, 2 and 3

Here is beta version RC11, which addresses the Steampipe update.

I have tested this version and it worked correctly for me on a fresh install of Steam.

I will be using it all the time from now on to install and test maps and mods.

I am really hoping this one can be released and Alex and I can start planning the next update and what features we want to include.

RC stands for Release Candidate in case you were wondering.

MapTap: Beta Release 2.4.0 RC8

Single Player First Person Shooter Maps and Mods for Half-Life 1, 2 and Episodes 1, 2 and 3

Beta version RC7 was supposed to correctly detect the half-life executable location. It didn’t.

I have tested this version and it worked correctly for me.

I will test it a little more and if there are no reports of issues, then this is likely to be the actual release candidate.

MapTap: Beta Release 2.4.0 RC7

Single Player First Person Shooter Maps and Mods for Half-Life 1, 2 and Episodes 1, 2 and 3

Alex and I have been working hard on the next version of MapTap (well, mostly Alex), and I have decided that from this version onwards, I will release each beta version.

In this case, it’s even more important than usual to get a wide variety of testers. This version should now detect the correct location of your Half-Life installation.
