I updated the Community subsection of Files today. I cleaned up what was there, added as many of the maps we were missing that I could think of (thanks smover for keeping such a good list), and also added smover's Server Launcher utility.
If I've missed a map you released it was entirely on accident, so lemme know the particulars.
*snicker* I can't believe we've still got an entire episode left to do... Damn that Wadmaasi :) Anyway, tossed up a couple new levels today, complete with screeniez.
Got some updates for anyone interested in continuing the fight to keep the Daikatana multiplayer community alive. DI-Smover sends word about the for-pay servers finally being online, with the following configurations:
Wayne sent me an e-mail earlier in the day letting me know that Gibcity6 has been released. The official description is "a Gothic Daikatana Deathtag level with custom textures." Sweemy. (Preview screenies here.)

The first in a run of new in-house content for you guys, courtesy of Stinky Papa, is a Daikatana Multiplayer page. The page offers a server-op FAQ, information about DK's MP gametypes, and a blatantly-plagiarized (by yours truly!) from PlanetDeusEx how-to guide for GameSpy Arcade. I even added it to the new menu there on the left-hand side of your screen, under Daikatana PC | Multiplayer. (Ain't I l22t?)
Continuing the multiplayer theme, Wayne choked my poor 56k inbox with some new shots of Gibcity6...and once I saw 'em, I was more than glad to've been spammed. (= (J/K Wayne, I love getting screenies!) Since there are six of them, I thumbnailed 'em on a page real quick-like. Aren't I just all about convenience? (Agree with me, damn it!)
What's the rest of the new content, I hear you asking? (I'm a telepath.) Well...you'll just have to come back tomorrow, and Monday, and probably Tuesday as well to find out. *neener*neener* Make sure you read Thursday's news about the Heretic2 map conversion!
[QE]Destroyer sends word that he's completed a conversion of a Heretic2 map to E1 DKDM. The .map file (dmlight.map) is available from Raven's homepage and is available for anyone to download and modify. Destroyer says:
I changed all textures in Daikatana and I exchanged the weapons and the ammo. I added the sky too and lightened the whole level with light. And last but not least I added windtones. But I didn't change the levelstructure.
Thanks to Blues for the reminder that it was one year ago today that Daikatana first started appearing on store shelves. Ahh, the memories :) Take a gander at our little feature of the first people in the world to own Daikatana. Kudos to the people that got the game and enjoyed it, and thumbs up to the steely developers who ground away for a long time to get it to retail. Happy Birthday, DK!
