Maps we recommend:
These maps are usually cycled on Xardion's Pit. We recommend these over the q2dm maps.
TO INSTALL, extract the zip file into your \Quake2 folder (NOT your devq2 folder).

devmaps2 - 7/4/2000
devmaps1 - 2/2/2000

Gamespy users: Optionally, you can download the Devastation Quake2 Gamespy Tab, to make it easier to single out DevQ2 servers.


2.   Unzip/Extract the file to your \QUAKE2 directory, (the zip/exe will CREATE a \devq2 sub-directory for you within the quake2 directory!)


Joining a Devastation Quake2 game:

1. Run Quake2 with the command line parameters: "+set game devq2" (without the quotes)

i.e.

2. From the "multiplayer" menu, select "join network server", then enter the game host's IP address into the address book. The game will then appear in a list. Select the game.

3. Alternatively, you can use Gamespy to find all internet games playing devq2, and it will handle the command line parameters automatically upon execution. (http://www.gamespy.com)
