MapTap 2 Now Available

16th April 2012

Update: MapTap has been replaced by Gauge.

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

I am pleased to announce that the next version of MapTap is now available.

It has the following new features:

  • A built in browser, allowing you find files and use them directly within the app.
  • Support of most Half-Life 1 maps. Some may not work, but most should
  • A “favourite” feature, to allow you to favourite maps, making them easier to find
  • An “Open the folder” feature, making it easy to view any ReadMe or screenshots

There’s a few other little things, but those are the ones that count.

MapTap users should have already been asked to update and if you had trouble, sorry about that, should all work perfectly now. If not, doesn’t hesitate to contact me.

In addition, there’s a new website and URL. The old one will disappear soon. MapTap is now linked to in the very top header and the menu a bit lower down.

Lastly, we still have another 5 or so cool features which we will be adding over time – that said, we’d love to hear your ideas for features.

As always, I would like to thank Alex for creting the application and his time, effort and patience while working with me – I can be pretty demanding some times!

    I tried it finally with the “Rescue in Ravvenhlom” map, and worked fine, its gerat that also support the set up for HL1 maps.

    I also found the new interphase clearer and better, Map Tap2 is a great tool every gamer should use!

    Many thanks for all the effort on it Phillip.

    1. Well, thank you, but let’s not forget Alex, without whom MapTap probably wouldn’t exist.

    Should we uninstall v.1 first, or is it safe to just install over the old version?

    1. If you have a previous version you can either download the patch and upgrade or just the full version. It’s your choice.

      Although if you do have a previous version it should automatically detect that a new version is available and as you if you want to update.

  5. I suppose it’s because MapTap is not designed for but it” seems to don’t fully working with WON HL1, isn’t it ?

    1. That’s correct, only Steam installation of all games is supported.
