OK, great maps, here's my findings.
MH-!!![DIE]-[fireworks] - Very similar to the version I already have on the server. It is much harder with the skull and grim reaper at the end. The Fireworks Redeemer is interesting but it kills you when you fire it. The 2nd firing mode works fine.
MH-EG-DARKFOREST_NUKE(2) - I didn't play it all the way through but looks like a great map for the server.
MH-GardenOfDeath_Hell - I am a big Serious Sam fan!!! Cool map and the extra weapons are great.
MH-LostInTimeEG - There was a mismatch file and the map crashed the server so I am leaving this one out until it can be fixed. The file was BPack.u
Thanks so much for the maps and keep em coming. Remember, I like lots of monsters!!!
BPak.u is on a lot of maps, though I wasn't aware it was on that one. There's a lot of versions of that particular file floating around out there but they're all identical. Feel free to use your own instead of the one that came with.
Fireworks redeemer is worth it, great for clearing space. So you die when you fire it, it's the kind of thing you shoot off when you're about to die anyway.
There are currently about 5 versions of that Serious Sam themed map, so if the Doom themed one doesn't work for you there's others to try.

There are many versions of that file but they are all not the same. So what happened is someone changed the BPack file but didn't change the name so it makes a mismatch. If i put your BPack on my server it will cause my map(s) that uses BPack to crash. If i try your map (Which I did) with my BPack then your map crashes the server. I would have to fix your map in the editor using my BPack. But then it might not be the same depending on the changes that were made to your BPack. Kinda confusing but when you change a map or file always rename it like BPack99 or something unique. No worries there are tons of cool maps out there for us to try. Thanks!!!

Ok here's the scoop on BPack and then i'm not wasting any more time on it, lol. Like I said, Apparently there are several versions of BPack out there in server land because people don't rename files when they change them. I'm not saying anyone here did that but it happens. I never assume anything when adding maps to a server, been doing this for almost 20 years. When a map crashes it crashes.
I just did a brand new install of UT99 on my wifes computer and the Bpack on the mars server is exactly the same as the BPack on my wifes computer. Even still I am not trying to point the finger or prove who is right or wrong. The mars MH server is an iconic server that has been around a long time. I have chosen to make as few changes as possible. I am sure BPack is used on more than one map on the server and I won't sacrifice any of them for one map. I have been gracious enough to put 3 other maps on the server for you and I am willing to add more but I am not adding any maps with a mismatch file no matter the circumstances. Say hi to medor for me.
I can't wait to try these MH maps on CMH this weekend!
Also, on the CMM server, the Monsters in this map didn't stand (much of) a chance against the PirateDeemerCMM. Well, 1 or 2 of them lasted a "while", and gave me some grief, but succumbed to this deemer. More later, after I play it some more this weekend - maybe the monsters in this map will try harder this time?
