All we need now is a Zelda or donky Kong map. Or maybe killer instinct map.

This is the only Mario map that has bots that work. Unfortunately, it is the least interesting out of the three on this site.

I like it but why just CTF, why not Deathmatch too, That would be a good map also cause it's big =)

Super Mario 64 for Nintendo 64 as a Quake 3 Arena CTF map, I'm definitely downloading this map.

That is because the PK3 and the map have different names. What you need to type at the console is:
\g_gamemode 4 (to enable CTF mode)
\map mario_ctf

The PK3 files are just a zip file with the 'zip' changed to 'pk3'.

If you didn't grow up playing Mario Brothers, then don't download the map and quit bitching.

For those of us who have, read on. I liked the map. I liked the music. I liked the theme. There were posts about only one entrance to the flag; actually, there are 3. There are two sets of stairs you can rush the flag from, plus the main entrance to the flag room which is a wide hallway.

The only problem I had with it are bots never take the stairs. They come from the same entrance so if you stand on the stairs with a rocket gun, you take out the bots. Other than that, Mario + Quake III = fun.

This map rocks! For the people bashing it, didn't u grow up playing mario??? This map is for the nostalgic gamer:) Wish the slowdown wasn't so bad though. My fps hit the 20s in the flag room. My average fps on most maps is 80.I am on a p3 700 and a geforce2 GTS. Hope u can fix the slowdown.

Loads of fun! Who cares if it's not what's the norm for Q3A and/or CTF? It's nice to look up and see a 'real' sky for a change, too. Try upgrading your video card, Fool, with my GeForce I don't see any of the visual problems or slowdowns that you mention :-)

people, please try and keep the post related to the maps - download load problems SHOULD be posted as well (or you can email us at

in order to clean up this page i had to remove a lot of post, no offense to anyone if i removed one or more of your comments.

post be the following where removed - peter watson, SiCdeth, A4Skin5, stevo, American, Rat_Scabies, Big D, FooL, ????, not entered, undeaDDisney, Pen-Pen, Kurupt, jim bob, steevo, The Voice of Reason

undeaDDisney - could you please try to keep your post map related - you have a huge history of going off topic (we are working on a place for off-topic comments, think of it as a gift when it happens :])

FTP problems are being dealt with along with a few other problems - I don't want to spend my review time cleaning up comments

And a BIG sorry to Pen-Pen for not getting to this sooner

Heres a tip: Don`t put all the spawn points in the same place so that if someone wants to play ffa they can actually move somewhere.

W.T.F. is it with all these Quake/Mario levels ?

They all SUCK in my opinion.

I mean, Jesus Christ, if your going to create a load of custom textures, why not come up with something original rather than a rehash of some stoopid suitable for 4-12 year old kids game.

How about a CTF level set in the red light district of Amsterdam for example :)

Good show, Pen-Pen!

Providing an alternative link to maps posted on LvL should become a regular least until he finds a real site host.

SOMEONE ( cough:peter watson:cough ) needs to learn anger management :)

Though his point about Fileplanet's unreliability is all too valid unfortunately :(

Wouldnt it be super cool if someone made a Super Mario Bros TC? I would love to play as Lugui and kill Mario with my BFKS (Big Freaking Koopa Shell).

That'll be cool. No score yet.. I'm downloading it.. Even if it sucks It'll have to be fun...

Good lord. I didn't know what I was going to rate this thing until i got here. But, I know now. 3 outta 10. It's crap. I went into it thinking it was going to be good. Honestly. I thought.....give it a try. No. If you love the game of CTF, then by GOD DON'T DOWNLOAD this one. (If you do, just delete it.) It discredits the game of CTF. Same ole same ole castle. And better yet it's the standard:

  1. go in door
2)go right or left (doesn't matter which, both go same place the same way)

  1. turn a couple of (boxed) corners. and speaking of the square boxed off hallways, maybe it was just me....but it seemed like i was moving so slow in this map. Maybe the halls were too big or something.
4)BOOM! There's the flag!

5)Leave the way you came in, OOORRR, LOOK IT'S ONE ALTERNATE ROUTE!!! YEAH!!!!

Sickening. Several other technical problems that I'm surprised Tigger didn't jump on.

1)Textures fade in and out and get sparkly. Normally, I don't care as long as the game play is good.......hmmmm

2)The lamps in the halls get in your way when trying to navigate. They needed to be recessed or something. and speaking of the decore.....skulls and rib cages laying around in a Mario castle...uhmmm, what? Oh and did I mention they aren't clip brushed either.....running along, BAM!!! ran smack into a skull

3)I never thought I'd say this, but, this level has too much armour. OMG! (right?) Check it out, if you EVER fell below 150 armour, there was something seriously wrong with your style of play.

As a matter of fact, now that I've thought of it....i gotta downgrade it, 2 outta 10 only because it's pretty. OH....FORGOT!!! 1 outta 10 for the music annoying as poop!

If you're a serious CTF player, do yourself a favor and don't expect anything out of this map.

(oh and p.s. if you play T.E.C. info-note here for you, this map screwed up my tec20.cfg)
