Update: MapTap has been replaced by Gauge.
Alex and I are pleased to announce that MapTap 2.6.0 is now available for download and use.
Current MapTap users should get a message the first or second time the run the application telling them a new package is available. If not, just visit the MapTap page and choose between the Update (smaller download) or the full version.
There are two new features in this version.
- After installing Source mods users will now be asked when they press PLAY if they want to disable the background map. This has been added because a lot of older Source mods crashed due to an issue with background maps. Users can choose between 3 response: Fix this and every mod from now on (not recommended) Fix this mod and ask every time or Don’t fix this mod.
- MapTap now creates a proper mod from archives that have single or multiple maps. We created a mod before but a user was not able to choose the map once in Steam. Now a user can.
MapTap is a Windows application that allows users to install and manage files download from PlanetPhillip.Com and RunThinkShootLive.com. It does not work with other websites, although single BSPs can be dragged and dropped onto the application window allowing the user to install the map to a game of their choice.
We have a large number of planned features but limited time and resources to develop them.
For a few versions now, Phillip has been using images of Dutch master paintings as the featured image of the posts. From this version forward a codename will be given to each version, which matches a real painting.
