    the one in your post is from James Duncan, not Luc St.Cyr

    Yes, you're right. I'm looking for the right map now.

    Here's the correct The_Rock: http://dukeworld.duk...ps/THE_ROCK.zip
  2. In Topic: TEN Design Contest Maps

    24 May 2018 - 07:18 PM

    Robert Travis was the winner in the TEN level design contest:

    His winning map was Anslem X. The original TEN contest page is here:

    Although she didn't work for Sunstorm, another noteworthy name here is the author of runner-up Quadstry, Crista Forest, someone who worked on the Shadow Warrior Twin Dragon and Deadly Kiss add-ons.

    This archived page includes a link to a full pack of all 33 semi-finalist maps, but unfortunately neither the exe or zip were saved, and I've not been able to find archived mirrors of either. This is doubly unfortunate since only a handful of these maps are identified on the page, but here are working download links to the winner and the named runners-up:

    Anslem X: http://dukeworld.duk...aps/anslemx.zip
    Earthwar: http://dukeworld.duk...ps/earthwar.zip
    Quadstry: http://dukeworld.duk...ps/quadstry.zip
    Hoovrdam: http://dukeworld.duk...ps/hoovrdam.zip
    The_Rock: http://dukeworld.duk...ps/THE_ROCK.zip

    And here's one other entry I could find, Charlie Wiederhold's Paint Ball II: http://dukeworld.duk...ps/pntball2.zip

    Since they were likely released independently, some of the other entries in this contest could possibly be ascertained by cross referencing the names of the voted winners with readme author names, but that's for some other time.
  3. In Topic: The Supreme Topic of Miscellaneous Knowledge

    While searching for Cam Nash (of all things), I came across this picture of the cancelled Duke Nukem D-Day game for the PS2 that I don't recall seeing before:

    This is from the portfolio of Michael Bacon, a former developer at n-Space. He mentions working on several levels for the game, including a fusion of Normandy and an alien Death Star which is presumably what's shown in this screenshot.

    And unrelated to D-Day but still in regard to Duke Nukem, he mentions that he was the one who did the Grabbag rendition for Land of the Babes, although it seems he didn't work on the game itself.
  4. In Topic: HHR video on Youtube question

    The video is probably ending up in people's recommended lists, which is potentially how you found about the video as well.

    His new link takes you to another site with a download manager and ads. Thats going to deter some people from downloading and playing plus it screws up the Moddb DL counter that I was keeping track of. Grrrr..... <_<

    A quick scan of the guy's other videos shows that all of his "download links" are all just ad.fly referrals, meaning he's one of those bottom feeding, scum sucking, algae eaters who's out to make a quick buck off the work of others. It's a wonder this channel's videos aren't stolen as well, although I can't say for certain they aren't.

    If I come up with another theory I'll let you know. ;)

    Analytics tells me that a majority of views from the past four years (after the initial surge from the original upload and the mod's release period) came from suggested videos and browse features, the latter being mostly the "Recommended for you" thing that people see on their YT homepage.

    A non-trivial number of views have come from searches, though. However, analytics specifies these as being almost exclusively from Duke-related search terms.
