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

Thanks Raz..
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!

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….

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.

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!

There is a reproducible bug with Chrome.
– Login
– 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”

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 😉

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 ?
Cheers

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
playing
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.

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

It would be useful for map contributors to be notified by e-mail when someone leaves a comment on their map.

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.

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.

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

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).
