What is the name of this map?
« on: February 15, 2018, 01:26:31 PM »
Hi all I am reaching out for your help for the file name of this map. It's a CTF style arena with sponsors and even a working scoreboard. Between the scoreboard and the sponsorship, I believe that it was released with one of the expansion disks. I played this with Josh Waggz one of the OG Lasermine / L-fire / Railwarz server admins. I just can't remember the name and finding it in our collection of almost 11 thousand maps its like a needle in a haystack!  If you follow the link I have set up an album with many screenshots that I took from a YouTube video, from way back in 1999, that featured this map.

Here are the many screenshots:

I got the screenshots from this old school YouTube video:

Thank you guys,

Are there any special triggers that display text? Do you remember any text from the map startup like the author name or some phrase? If we can search for a semi-unique text inside the map we can narrow the scope of the search and automate it.

Also, if those Mountain Dew and Skittles textures are part of the map (and not some separate re-texture pak) then there's a chance a string like "mtdew" or "skit" might be found in the .bsp file (if we're lucky with the texture filename.)

I have grepped the server collection for skit, skt, immort, mnt, activ, activis, and come up empty. Total files searched on the TS collection available to me on the server is 3796 files.

I also entdumped and grepped my local collection for these words and found none of them are associated with any walls, banners or entities in any maps resembling the one shown. Total map files searched 4299.

If the map depicted was a real map either it has never been distributed or it's not an active map in the Tastyspleen collection accessible to me.

You might try Deacon's collection, where he took screen shots of all the maps and see if you can spot it in the list: http://maps.clanwos.org/maponserver/

Good luck.

One thing I remember about Jwaggz showing me this map that may be a clue, I think it had a duplicate filename when we played it. That is, I think I had to delete my file, and let this download. I remember remarking on that to Josh, saying something like, "No wonder I did not have this, it has the same name as X." Unfortunately, the mysts of memory obscure that name to me, but I think it was something common, and along the lines of "1v1arena." I remember 1on1 or 1v1 or arena. Alternately, it could be that the name has "Act" or "Activision" abbreviated in the name. I have looked thru all the WOS maps and did not see it. I thought it would be in the AcmeCTF download folder, but I looked thru their individual files and .zip files and did not see it.  But word to the wise: it may be hiding in plain site, under a name already used, and the only way I will be able to identify it is by the different file size.

Thank you Quadz and QwazyWabbit you guys gave me some good fresh ideas for this search. Thank you for your help and I will keep you posted. It will be mine, oh yes. It will be mine.

I mean ours.   :ilysign:
