Welcome to XMaps!
This site has been designed to keep you up to date with the development, release and use of my Mutator for UnrealTournament, XMaps. These pages were originally hosted on my own site, GWeb, but the URL was simply too long for people to remember ;-) Following on from the development of that site, I've decided not to keep the support for the Active Channel technology introduced by Microsoft in Internet Explorer 4.0. It really was a bit useless, not one of Bill's best ideas...
If you're one of the many surfers of GWeb who've followed me through the development of XMaps, many thanks for sticking with me...
I expect that this site will keep expanding - especially in the areas that help you, the XMaps users, to get the most out of XMaps. I've spent a lot of time trying to make it as useful as possible, and most of the input in this area has come from members of the UT community. If there's anything you don't like about XMaps, or features you think it needs, then please take the time to let me know.
As you've no doubt guessed, this site is hosted by the venerable PlanetUnreal, which has given many a worthy site a home. While XMaps was going though it's early development stages, I had a number of offers for hosting the GWeb original pages, but once you get the call from PlanetUnreal, you can't really ignore it... So far, almost all of the major news sites have seen fit to provide coverage of XMaps' evolution - the only exception being Blue's News. No matter what I do, they never post the news. Ah well, it's their site...
Site Appearance and Links
The main site index can be found on the left, with supplemental page indexes appearing on the right when needed. The site is optimised for Internet Explorer Version 4.0+, but should now be operational in all Version 4+ browsers :-)
XMaps is best viewed in a flippin' high resolution (preferably 1024x768), and any frames-capable browser should do just fine.
Downloading Files from the Site
One of the conditions of being hosted on PlanetUnreal is that FilePlanet is used to host all downloads. Generally speaking, FilePlanet is a reliable way of getting instant file mirroring for those of us who host websites. If this proves to be a real problem, I'll post mirrored files at GWeb. If you feel this is necessary, drop me a line.
I'd strongly recommend using a download manager such as GetRight - you can grab a copy of the latest version from GWeb under the Applications menu. You're probably best off using GetRight's click monitor - just use the links as usual and GetRight takes over to perform FTP or HTTP downloads.
Having problems with the Site?
If you have any problems with any of the links or pages you find in this site, let me know. I'll do my best to get them fixed as soon as I can...
