No editing news yet. I am busy with non-editing related projects again...
Meanwhile, my email address changed to: email@example.com.
Back to editing now and DAVSub: Source is going to be moved to the OrangeBox engine.
No dates to give but I am still working on it (after 3 years!).
A new interview has been posted at
MapCore/PixelMods. You can read it here.
Meanwhile, I am still working on DAVSub: Source...
Still working on DAVSub: Source but there is still much work to do... DAVSub: Source will be a bit more then a simple port. Some areas will be converted, some will be enhanced while others will disappear completely.
DAVSub: Source is being made for HL2 and that means that it will have the HL2 world as a base (HL2 enemies, vehicles, etc)...
Azure Stand will be the sequel of Azure Sheep and Point of View.
It will be a Single Player Only Mod for Half-Life 2 and you will be able to play as Xonxt (Alien Slave), Kate and Barney.
The timeline will be during the 7 hours war (Combine invasion).
No release date is set yet and, with the exception of the story, we didn't start working on it yet.
Meanwhile I am working on porting DAVSub to HL2...
With the latests changes/updates on Steam, you can play the Half-Life levels on Steam.
The changes on the engine affected more then the Half-Life levels and other SP mods, it affect HL Single Player also.
Valve will be fixing the bugs and problems in Steam/Half-Life version 126.96.36.199 and hopefully soon or later it will be possible to run the Half-Life levels on Half-Life version 188.8.131.52.
Meanwhile, if you want to play the Half-Life levels, play them on the version you had before installing Steam.
The recently released Half-Life version 184.108.40.206 that comes with Steam haves allot of changes to the Half-Life engine that are not allowing some mods to run properly anymore.
If you want to be able to play the Half-Life levels keep the version you have of Half-Life when installing/updating to Steam and play the Half-Life levels on the version you had before Steam (I did that and works).
If you already installed Steam and removed the old version, then install Half-Life in a new directory, update it to version 220.127.116.11 and install and play the Half-Life levels using that install.
No patch is planned to move any of the Half-Life levels to Half-Life version 18.104.22.168. It is simply not possible to do a move every time that Valve releases a new version of Half-Life that breaks the compatibility between the new version and the older versions.
A update!? Not really, just to say (again) that work on Point of View is still going...
Half-Life Italia, our host for Azure Sheep and Point of View changed address...
That was not a big problem but by doing that they breaked the address that we had for Azure Sheep and Point of View!
And so, while the situation is not fixed, one way or another, please use this links instead of the ones you know: Azure Sheep (
http://halflife.multiplayer.it/azuresheep/), Point of View ( http://halflife.multiplayer.it/pov/)

I changed also the hover effect on the link buttons and corrected the
I did receive some emails about the DAVSub download problem. I contacted
PlanetQuake and I am waiting for a reply. The error is estrange because, for example, it doesn't happen to me when I extract the files from the zip after I download it and I know that there are others that can download the file. Anyway if you want the map, and if your email account can old a +-15Mb email, drop me a email and I will send it to you. I will try to fix the problem as soon I have a reply from PlanetQuake.

Yes that's right DAVLevels has moved to
You may find the old news in the News archive page.
For those who came to DAVLevels before the change is obvious, new design! It's completely different from the previous version and I think that the site looks a lot better this way. Anyway, no new level...yet...
It took some time but here it is: hlattack added (the continuation to hlarches for Half-Life). I also made a new version of hlarches that you should download to make the levels to connect in a better way.
I'm planning also to change the design of the site (my design teacher didn't considered this design to be the most correct).
New Quake 2 level added. This level gave me a lot of work also and it took 300 hours or more (I lost count) during almost one year to make. Hope you enjoy it.
New Quake 2 level added. This level gave me a lot of work (it took 110 to 120 hours, during 2 mouths, to make) and its pretty simple for the player to end. Check it out!
Banner problem fixed (I hope). Fortune City now as a 10MB file size limit instead of the 1MB so I changed the two Quake 2 level that used RAR to ZIP.
3 Banners! That's great and they also give script errors ! This happens because the Banner Bot that fortunecity uses its not working properly. I send a Help email to fortunecity to try to fix the problem.
Some changes to the site and one more Quake 2 level added.
New Quake 2 level added. It's the first deathmatch only level that I ever made.
