Continued thanks to all you guys who build these maps.
Question.. probably a simple solution, but is there a way to sort maps in the custom map drop down alphabetically? They seem to appear randomly, so whenever I add a new map I have to skim up and down till I find it.
Hi ……… in my experience the custom map menu is a strange beast …… i have had it rearrange itself after adding a mode to a map that was already there …… i have found no consistency …….. i do try to keep the number of maps in my DG2 folder down to new maps, favourites and ones i plan to play, usually below 25, ……… the rest, i store in another folder
— too many maps in the DG2 folder does cause problems —
more than making it hard to find the map you want, some maps (for some reason) do not play well together, if they are in the DG2 folder together, you will get a corrupted file message ……
if anyone knows of any methods or tricks that effect this menu ….. please share them
Slight problem discovered when I removed a map from my DG folder, the game wouldnt load.
Should I be removing something too elsewhere in the Steam / DG set up?
– the \Documents\DG2\ folder should contain only the unzipped folders for each map you have in it ……..
– to add or remove maps, simply move the unzipped map folder into or out of the DG2 folder
– if you make no changes, other than that, the game should load and play no problem
Chett, if you are still having problems ….. send me a friend request on Steam …. it is the easier to text in real time
I don’t really know how the site work, who owns it and manage it.
But seeing the last message about php (I hope not the end of the site), did some of you thought about migrating to the Nexus for exemple ?
The purpose of the site is to host mods for games, there is mod managers that could make install easier for beginners, forums to discuss, etc.
I already use it for games like skyrim, the witcher3, fallout4, grim dawn, mass effect series, etc. the type of games is very large.
A long shot I know, as ‘Suspira’ is not a rare in game name but from your mentioning other games I wonder…. could it possible be the Suspira who I met many years ago in Asherons Call?
Hi.. is anyone still monitoring this site? I cant find out how to add these maps to DG2 on Win10. Can anyone help please.. Love DG2 and see some great maps here.
I tried the documents folder path but the map didnt show up when I tried looking in Local Maps. Would really appreciate some help
OK… update, found a folder under Steam directory called ‘locales’. dropped in ‘The Ark’ folder after unzipping the download and yaay.. it turned up in the Local files on maps in DG2.
So great.. I downloaded a few more to compare but none of them show up??? Shut Steam and re-opened it but still just Ark in there. Now I am even more confused!
Yes the site is still has an admin team. Sadly I am not on win 10 so I cant provide any help directly on this issue. Best to ask in the steam forms. Im sure someone there can help.
Usually you have to put the unzipped folder to c:\users\XXX\documents\DG2\
Then look at the “Custom Levels” in DG2.
I dont know an other way….
Thanks.. will try Steam forums, whats baffling me is why i can see one of the downloads but not the others.
You open an explorer window and go to the documents folder.
If there is no dg2 directory in documents, create one and unzip the files you downloaded here in it.
Then in DG2 go to custom maps (I don’t know what they use in english my game is in french) and you should see the custom maps.
there is a spelling error on the side bar

Per above comment, when I select All maps to show on page (or 18) I still only see about 8 maps. I’m not sure if any of the options on the header work at the moment.
Something wrong with the sorting of maps. Whatever I choose to sort on the maps remain in the same order?
Wow ……. it’s been a year since i last left a post and thanked you …… the fact that there has been no posts in the last year about issues with the site, is proof of the quality service that you have provided the DG2 Community.
Thank you, thank you very much!
We are very proud that the site works as well as it does. There are parts of the site we wish we could fix and make better but without the funding to do so the current site should last another year or two.
I am so glad you got funding to update the site. Love the raspberry reference.
– for all the work you do to keep the site up and running so smoothly ….. it is a commitment that can easily become onerous and repetitively tedious
– i appreciate the quality of your time and energy
Happy First of July!
There is a reproducible bug with Chrome.
– Got to “FOREVER FREE MAPS”
– Filter Maps By: “Maps I haven’t downloaded”
– You will see a blank screen from now on until you remove the cookies for this site. Restarting browser or logging out doesn’t resolve the issue.
the workaround with a wart (it clears ALL cookies for the past hour):
go to chrome://settings/
select advanced at the bottom
clear browsing data
time range last hour
and DONT Filter Maps By: “Maps I haven’t downloaded”
sorry to post as a comment but read above ^^^ “If, however, you have an issue and need to contact the admin team directly please [admin_user_messages_contactus].”
Don’t know how to reach you but I think you would like to fix this :-).
Thanks for helping find issues on the site, for this issue you found it was intentional disabled, for now at-least. We intentionally disabled the form popup due to spam but may bring it back. Right now leaving a comment for us here on this post page is currently the best way to reach us or tell us of any site issues. As backup, another way to reach us would be by our pinned Steam discussion topic.
I have re-enabled the contact us links and added some spam filters, but leaving us a comment is also a good way of reaching us 🙂
I have confirmed that this is a code brake that traces back to the issue we had a few months ago. I have had to disable this option until such time as we can get donation funding to have it fixed by the outside coder.
I got an issue with changing the name. “Nickname (required) and Display name publicly as” are set to McB in the settings, but there is no changing after saving. Everytime i open the settings there is correclty “McB”.
I just want to change my viewable username paul.lauter to McB. Is it possible somehow?
If you have attached your steam account to the site then your steam username is used instead of your site account nick name.
As of right now the only way to have your site nickname display is to click on “Logout of Steam” on the far left under the greetings message.
In future and depending on our yearly budget/donations we may be able to add a feature in where you can choose between your Steam name or your site nickname.
Hope that helps
All right, thank you!
Unfortunately there’s an issue on the site since 2 weeks. Login trough steam isn’t possible and I can’t upload my map.
with kind regards
Hi Paul ,
we are negotiating with a 3rd party programmer at this very moment trying to sort out why the upload section and Steam login is not working anymore.
Be assured, it will be fixed soon.
ps. can’t wait to see your new map 😉
Site is fixed
UPOAD away mate :))
Great, I’ll do it in the next time!
Hi, have found this site after recently purchasing DG2. Looking forward to trying out the maps here. I enjoy playing with my brother in CO-OP , so my question is – can we play any of these maps in multiplayer co-op ?
Some maps have the multiplayer feature and some don’t. Check the maps description on its download page.
i don’t know if it is possible with the autogenerated custum maps
like the original and the ones i bought in the store
they have all have a picture in the menu so you can see the map before
at the moment i keep an word doc to refere to the maps
but a total of 38 now plus the 4 of the store
the only reference is looking for medals in the menu
this site or my doc….
I think you’re asking if custom maps can have a thumb graphic in game? Currently no 🙁 unfortunately. There’s a tag for it in the .mission file, and pretty sure it wants “Targa” format, but unable to get anything except a white dot to show up
two things that could be handy.
1. A forum for us to visit which could then encapsulate request number 2. This can open a can of worms though.
2. A tutorial/tips section on how to make a map. A simple write-up with the main information on how to make a map, how to upload it and how to download it. There doesn’t seem to be an adequate place to find out how to build a map, just lots of little bits of information spread around the hiddenpath forums and youtube.
We have thought about a forum but at this time we don’t have any plans to add one to the site. If people are looking however to “request” help building maps we may look at other options to answer that need.
Regarding tutorial’s and tips, under our how-do-i’s we have HP’s own tutorial videos and links to HP’s documentation on the map builder. If anyone however would like to make a more in-depth tutorial video we would be glad to post their videos.
I dowloaded an updated map
i accidenty unpacked it in documents/dg2 map
it gave me an game data corrupt error reinstall game
when i looked in the map i saw the text file was unpacked in the map
deleting this file solved the problem
maybe putting this in how to install a map
I don’t think it was the txt file causing you the issue. As I test, I put it in My Documents\DG2 and also in My Documents\DG2\map folder.. I did not receive the corrupt game message.
i noticed maps gets updates however you need to check all again
a colour change or maybe a sorting on update(date) would be a notice for those who want to check them ?
as some updates are really worth to check
Thanks, It is an idea we may look into and test out.
It would be useful for map contributors to be notified by e-mail when someone leaves a comment on their map.
That is something we can look into. Thanks for the idea 🙂
I would like to suggest a wiki of sorts with information, tips and tutorials on how to make maps for DG2. Let’s face it, the DG Architect is not really a user-friendly or stable piece of software 🙂 It would help getting better quality maps out there.
Any volunteers to shoot a few how-to videos?
Great idea, nice site so far. I hope you guys will expand on it a bit, like adding a forum, because right now there’s not really a feeling of being in a community, which would be nice though. I’d love to find more DG2-minded people and discuss tactics, maps, etc.
We encourage users to leave feedback and discuss tactics but more on a per map basis then in an overall DG2 sense right now. The idea for a more generalized community forum may be something we look into a little bit down the road.
We are working on a few more features but those are still being testing atm.
Recognition Wall error:
The comment Text will not be shown in the wall
We have updated our code to fix the issue going forward. Sadly we are not able to recover those past comments.
thanks so much for your contribution! i apologize for the error.. we were testing so much stuff with the uploads and whatnot.. i have everything worked out now and think the donation experience is much improved going forward .. thanks again!
Please make a symbol or other background or so on to the maps overview when i have already downloaded it. If there are later much more maps (I hope so) then there is a very bad overview which maps i have already
We have added a function to the sort maps drop-down that lets you filter by maps you have or have not downloaded.
(This function only works as long as you are logged into our site when you download a map)
I wish a membersite, because now the profile has not much sense, eventually also with steam data that i can add steam users. because now there is also no really sense of the steam login
I hope to add more steam interaction in the future, but you have to start somewhere right? in the mean-time if you associate your steam id with our site, you may log into our site using steam, see your steam avatar here in comments, along with your steam name (though maybe not on some internal site messages still).
