These are all the other .mp files that I have. There are various versions and some of them
will crash the LED so are no good. I can't remember which the bad ones are. But there is at
least one in each folder that works. I think there is a complete version of each as far as I can tell,
but the Mines one is missing the final section.

Hi guys! Glad to see you!
Sorry, for me this work takes a lot of time, but I do not have it. So I'll try, but I will not promise anything.
Maybe sgi1981 can to help more. Many years ago he deciphered *.mp and *.bw formats.

Thanks Pro for help but I don´t want to decryp original game .MPs or anyelse. I lost the .MP file from my BeastMode proyect, and only need help for any method to restore it by reverse engineering.

Thanks Pro and thanks Harrison for your work and answer and try to help me. I´ll try to contact with SGI too.

Thanks again guys!

Hi Tomash, that .MP is a gladiator map that I use for testing the playable enemies. I want my original "BMM.MP".

This petition is because I don´t know how go back to "BeastMode" level from external maps like "coliseum", "Arena3", etc saving the score/kill counts and select other enemie to continue the round. (Like gladiator original code or your Enemies mod itself)

It's quite interesting to have the source files to study, at least for modders.
There are a few little hidden places that got closed off that you would never
know were there.
