old Gameleader .map files- Shadow Warrior
Heres a bunch of maps from the old Gameleader website.
You may find some of the zips to be corrupted but many are still good.

I tried those links they work, maybe I need to post another location or time period for these maps......let me know and I'll see what I got.

I plan on adding these maps too rtcm eventually I just thought people would enjoy them now, I got over 700 maps to post(30 megs) for shadow warrior, probably half from the gameleader archive.

Heres what i managed to get together. Luckily Proasm still hosts them all. I believe many were from your own rtcm pages too

edit// I see the ones we made come to about 16mb. These were after dupes were removed and useless text files, artwork etc etc. If you have 30mb then maybe you have loads of new ones, so please do try to put together a definitive pack.

Re: old Gameleader .map files- Shadow Warrior
I'll try, but the maps will be posted separately rather than in a single zip archive. You or somebody else will have to sift through that afterwards.

I think I got the maps from somewhere else too, an odd ftp location, I'm trying to find the correct link, I need to do some organizing first.

P.S. Theres BLOOD3D maps too at the archived gameleader.


I just checked the archives, It looks like 125 maps(5megs) are damaged, I seen some on your mappacks however, but its sad that this many are gone now.

Re: old Gameleader .map files- Shadow Warrior
How did you download them all from wayback ? I tried to use teleport pro and it just refused to gather all the zips (from your link, but i do know they work cos i downloaded a few manually).

When all these sites were active i was a bit of a SW map horder. I recall leeching hundreds and the majority of the map packs were from my own backups. Had to dig out a rather old dusty cd Many people contributed too and whatever sites i could find that still existed i rechecked and leeched from. Including yours.

This means that i probably did include virtually every map from that gameleader site. All yours, all my backups, deleted all dupes and shared them here. For this reason i believed the pack to be pretty complete.

I can say that many zip names often had a different map filename inside. So the corrupt zips you have i.e. Bridge.zip isn't necessarily bridge.map inside and may still be included. Hard to tell though but i'll be interested in a full zip of files you manage to find and i will check and update the packs. (would be great to have access to a single huge zip if you could ? I could let you know when i've got it so you can take it down again.)

What I'll do after work is zip the good maps up and send them off too you. Can you handle a .rar file?

As far as how I got them, back in 2003 I think, I manually downloaded each one.

ahhh, i thought you'd hunted out the wayback links and had leeched them all more recently.

Yes, zip, rar, ace, 7z, uha, lha. Any way it comes is fine. Wrapped up in a naked Natalie Portman would be the preferred method

Re: old Gameleader .map files- Shadow Warrior
Big thanks to Corvin for his hard work and for supplying me with 530+ map zip files. After a lot of unpacking and sorting i have found 37 new maps to add to the 2 map packs. At first i thought there wouldn't be any new ones, i figured my packs were 99% complete but i was glad to be wrong. Means we have loads of new maps to try out

Corvins gonna host all 530+ alongside what he already lists as original zips while still including text files, art work etc on his RTCM site. While i am adding just the map files to the map packs. I am currently determining wether they are WB or SP and then will add them to the relevant zip. A couple of days in spare time i think.

ProAsm, hopefully i can count on you to update your pages when the zips are ready ? If so i will get things sorted and upload somewhere that you can pinch them from.

Thanks again Corvin. Keep em coming

After playing them all, theres 8 new Single Player maps and 24 new WangBang (although some are experimental teeny maps that won't be much fun). I will update the zips now.

Of the single player maps at least a couple are good. One is called Training and its REALLY hard !!

Re: old Gameleader .map files- Shadow Warrior
ahhh, while you are here.
The map packs are very oddly split. 7.1mb + 0.4mb ? and 7.7mb + 1.0mb.
Wouldn't these be best all in one file ? Or at least split into 2 neat halves ?

If its to be prepared for new maps, should it do 5 + 2.5 and 5 + 3.7 ?

Basically the 7.1 are Singleplay only and the 7.7 are WB.
Just seperate the Sp from the WB and I'll combine the smaller with the bigger here so we just have 2 packs, SP and WB.

Good stuff. I redid the search on that url and visited a few other sites that hosted maps too. Leeched 55 zips but i think 5 at most will be new. Will check. Any other links, whack em in here and i'll keep leeching and testing files. I want our zips to be as complete as possible.

2 new SP maps although one is an older version of one already present. "Control" has been added, where "ContrlV2" was already present. Theres some differences so i included it. Theres 1 other SP map, and then about 5 new WB maps.

I'll hold off getting the zips updated for now in case more old archives turn up.

//edit// Yep, 3 more WB maps. 1 mini TC too. Now if only i could remember how to make it into a mini-tc

New MiniTC. Hope you can host it Pro Its a 715k zip. Let me know when you have it please.

I wonder if its worth altering the map pack filenames slightly. It'll mean renaming the link each time a new one goes up (a 5 second job) but if we add the map count to the end..... I think people will always know if they have the latest.

MapsSP-211.zip
MapsWB-467.zip

is what i suggest.

Re: old Gameleader .map files- Shadow Warrior
A lot of these zips were done with pkzip, so maybe thing will work better if you boot a dos 6.22 floppy/stiffy and use pkunzip or pkzipfix etc.
I also tried getting that Sex Warrior some time back with no luck.
I remember at the time of the release it was withdrawn shortly afterwards, not sure why.

Links for current map packs changed to Sw-Maps-SP-209.zip and Sw-Maps-WB-458.zip
I have to use the SW prefix as the folder has over 2700 DN maps also

Wheel Of Fortune is also up - I added the -g in the bat file which was missing.

Re: old Gameleader .map files- Shadow Warrior
Cool. Didn't know about the -g error as i always use SWP to load these TC's, never the .bat and glad you updated the filenames too.

You might be right about the zips. Its strange how so many can be corrupt, but winzip was pretty prevalent by 1997+ and should be perfectly capable of unpacking pkzip files. However, i do think its worth investigating an old win95 era unpacker.

It'll have to be something that works in vista though. No floppy, no usb floppy here for dos bootdisks. I haven't used a floppy disk for over 4 years now i think.

Well I repaired some, didn't notice any problems on some, but others had mis drawn walls during the game.

The ones that are corrupt that I have came from the webarchive, some are severaly corrupt while others are missing headers.

oh, pkzip may run in dosbox if you wanted to try it.

Using DosBox is not the same as it forces Interrupt 2F where as 6.22 uses Bios Interrupt 1A and Dos Interrupt 25 which are direct access interrupts.

The latest motherboards don't have floppy controllers no more so I just make a memory stick bootable with Dos6.22 and use that, although I see my new PC's mobo chipset does not allow Dos or even Win98 anymore - pity.

Re: old Gameleader .map files- Shadow Warrior
PKZIP 2.04g shareware version runs on 32 bit systems even under Vista, no need for DosBox. Not sure if I should attach it here, even if it is shareware, but just googling PKZIP204G works fine for most folks.

One may also occasionally encounter ZIP files that even if not corrupt, cannot be opened by many modern UNZIP utilities including Windows Explorer; they use the old compression method that panicked everybody about the "UNISYS will eat your dog" thing and the utilities deliberately do not support them; that's why PKZIP 2.04g is still useful

Thanks Martin. It gives me some hope at least. Maybe all these archives aren't forever lost.

Corvin, do you have an archive of corrupt files now ? Any chance i could get them all again. I'm not sure PKZip 2.04 will help me if its specifically 32bit only, as i am on 64bit vista, but i'd like to give it a try. I'm gonna start leeching from all the links in this thread again and see what i can put together.

I'd be very grateful for all the "seemingly damaged" archives you may have if possible.

I have about 200 corrupt files, not sure if I found replacements for some of them, but I didn't keep a record of what got replaced with good ones.

If I get time I'll put them in a archive and upload them, but I'm tight on time latly.

Re: old Gameleader .map files- Shadow Warrior
I'm gonna keep the archives that are corrupt. If any repair, i will use them to build up my own packs, but i will also rezip them into working complete zips for you. Including text files etc (i know how you like them intact ) Between us we could both have our archives more complete.

I'm leeching multiple copies of every map i can find now. 250 downloaded so far (of which many are corrupt). I've noticed too that where a map is corrupt, i may find 2 others than are also corrupt. Now either the original author uploaded a corrupt zip or they really are just old unsupported zip formats. Means that it might just be true and we could get more maps out of this...

I'll keep you informed...

Re: old Gameleader .map files- Shadow Warrior
Okay, I sent you the link to the corrupt map archives.

I highly doubt the pkzip program is needed, I just think these corrupt maps are the result of the web archiver faulty downloads.

The file with the headers removed should be able to rebuild them entirely. Since a new header can be made with the existing files in the archive.

Well have fun!

Re: old Gameleader .map files- Shadow Warrior
Great stuff, but honestly i'm getting sick of scooting thru the same 500 maps... I bet you must be too. All the sites list the same old maps, we keep trading the same old maps and not a lot new is being found any more. Anyway, I think this current effort will be my last effort on making complete map packs, well, unless a whole new personal archive or site is found

So far, 3 new maps. Loads of archives to attempt a fix on too. Will let you all know how i do in a couple of nights. Once done i will then pass these to ProAsm again for hosting and i'll be done...
