Sorry but this map is crap for a conversion. Its nothing like the original. I hate it. The Edge by Finko is better. This was in the generations Arena map pack, I played it and I couldn't reminisce with Quake II WHAT DO PEOPLE SEE IN THIS MAP?! -1/10

I have to say I was disappointed with this map. Nothing like the original and off music. Fortunately, there was a ripped version. I wish Generations Arena Chose The Edge Revisited instead. This map just sits in the map list shunned. 1/10

ReBoOt has recently made a _very_ good remake (IMHO even slightly better than this The Edge remake by Charon) of Tokay's Towers for Generations Arena ( http://www.wireheadstudios.org ). Charon's map also features in the Generations mappacks, and it plays great. If you like nostalgia-maps or if you can recommend some great ones to us, visit our forums and let us know!

Hey man, I don't know how you did it, but this is a MASTERPIECE! I have met hundreds of maps, some of them were very good, but not better then this one. I always play on this map against bots with my friend. Congratulations man, it's just awesome. What do you say for Tokays Towers? I have 2 tokay tower maps, both are terrible. If you could make it (I'm sure you could) than that would be VERY awesome. Than tha chain would be complete. :D Really, think about it...

This is the most commonly played remake of The Edge (Q2DM1) on the Internet.

It shouldn't be. Jamin Bulyk's version is superior in almost every way.

If you want to play a Charon map, try Timeless Classic (CHARON3DM2) instead.

Did you do the updated version? if so, where can we get it, and any other Q2 maps you've been brave enough to remake?

Thanks Man :)

Great revision of Q2DM1. My first thoughts were... IMPRESSIVE!!! Has got to be the best Q2DM1 makeover by far. The look and feel of the level is very unique and I really like the new ideas you've added to the level. Well done :?)

Sweeeeeet conversion, is very well proportioned for the switch to Q3A gameplay (especially with Grandma Hook or Requiem mods...can't wait to play it with CHAOS Arena's anti-gravity belt.)---e

Very good job! I played the map, and gameplay is solid, even just against the bots. The green murky water makes getting the railgun interesting. I've run head long into a few bots and "surprised" them that way a few times.

The textures are great, it gives a classic level the feel of the Arenas Eternal. The Arena masters found excellence in the pits of Stroggos, and were thus inspired to build their own Arena. Now if someone would make a version of "Lost Hallways" that's this good, I'd be most happy, though how to get around those pesky non-working ladders...

While I got burned out on Q2DM1 while playing Quake 2 (a map change IS good once in a while...) this is a top notch remake. I do not use the term "conversion" here because a lot of effort has been put into it, and a lot of detail added. Far too much work to call it a "conversion". Again, good job.

I rate it a 9. I only found one visual glitch, the area of which I won't disclose so all the nitpickers don't go looking. I can't wait to play Generations Arena there. I'm sure Grunt and Bitterman will feel right at home. =)

Sorry I removed some of your shaders from your pk3, because they were modifying some Id's shader, as you can see in q3dm2 (water) or qm3dm8 (fog). You could recompile with shaders renamed as textures/charon/... Thanks if you do it, because the water looks awful without your shader ! Good conversion anyway !

Peeeyeeew! What a stinker! I love the original Q2DM1, and got my hopes up when reading that this level was a remake of it AND that it had been built from scratch but then I played it = man what a let down, unporportional and yellow fog in the water to the RG...ok?! I realize (now) that the author was making his own version of The Edge but why tease us? I want the real deal damnit! Any hope for id to do this level justice and make it themselves? Nice try but not what Im looking for.

I know I'm gonna piss people off but I've never really liked this map (the original or any conversions). I don't know why. This version, however, is by far the most colorful.

thanks for the comments peeps

currently I'm going to do a version2(by popular demand) that fixes the shader problem.....bleh..that was a BIG mistake on my part and I'm really sorry about it...the easiest way to correct this is just go into your baseq3/scripts directory and delete the "charonq2dm1.shader" file......it was my first attemp at doing shaders and I didn't realize that doing it the way I did would have such a bad impact...but..I've learned....anyway..thanks again

Hey there RyGuy !!! The conversion program might be cool for making maps on the fly but the results are not anything to compare with a map that was made from the ground up.

And yes, this map allows some tricks that were possible but pretty hard on Q2DM1. I was never able to grab the MH without Rjumping, but I saw tons of demos with people doing it. BTW, some people trying to get the MH were taking too much time and fell prey to my RL !!!

This is by far the best conversion of Q2DM1, and definitely the best conversion of any standard Q2DM map I've seen. It plays wicked, just like the original, and the texturing is very good.

My only gripes are the noticable vis errors in the map, but according to the author, this was unavoidable.

As for not entered comments. Why don't you put a name to your comments you coward. Also, I've seen every conversion of tokays towers, and not one of them was good. The best one had sloppy texturing, almost no use of curves and added jump/accelerator pads where none should be. So, please cough up that link to this conversion that you claim is so much better than this.

I've been serving this map up for awhile now, and have not had any complaints. Everyone loves it. I have not had a problem with the water texture, not sure why though...seems a lot of others are.

Good conversion...this is how they are supposed to be. Not with cheap programs that convert the map and do no work in actually making it look and play good in Q3, let a lone retexture it.

RyGuY: Tokays Towers has already been done (and it turned out MUCH better than this POS). Sorry I don't have a link handy but it shouldn't be too hard to find.

I think this map is terrible. I've had it for a while (got it from shugs) and not only is the script screwed up, but it also replaces a standard id water texture with some nasty brown looking thing. Took me nearly an hour to figure out which pk3 in my baseq3 directory was causing it. That kind of thing really irritates the hell out of me.

The Script file on the outside is a real headache, its been constructed wrong in many ways too :[ eg;

* textures/charon/protobanner (this is *ok*)

* textures/sfx/fog_timdm8 -> v.bad - should be textures/charon/charon_fog

* textures/liquids/calm_poollight -> v.bad as well - should be textures/charon/charon_poollight

In its current state there is very few servers that will run this map. If Charon wishes to *fix* these errors and re-release the map I'll be happy to update ..::LvL asap.

The map is a damn great conversion, really cool. But having the "clangdark" texture changed in the shader with the same filename as in the original game (thus changing all the clangdark textures in the game) is just stupid, stupid, stupid.

I've had this one for a while now and it's as great a conversion of q2dm1 as we'll get. Nice to notice that it's built from scratch, and the result shows. The down side? It's q2dm1 which means it's been played to death by most Quakers on this planet! At least all the tricks we learned in Q2 still work here. I give it an 8.
