Fear & Loathing for TFL

More Info In the past, TFL map editing was only for the brave or privileged, and often both. Brave, because if you didn't have Bungie's development tools, you had a world of hex-editing and buggy, ineffective editors to use. Privileged, because there were very few people who had the Bungie tools at their disposal, and those who had them were very good about keeping them out of the public's hands. Both, because even if you had these tools, there was no documentation for them, and they too are incomplete and buggy.

So here, finally, Project Magma makes these once off-limits tools available to you with the added benefit of documentation. What I (DeadMan) have done here is take the existing documentation from the Myth II Fear and Loathing tools and retrofit them to make sense with the TFL beta tools. Most of the text within these documents is not my own; Rather it is the work of those in the credits section, under "original text".


Ghôl Rugby

Download Project Magma is proud to release the first original gametype for Myth:TFL: Ghôl Rugby! Having taken over 2 years in development and testing, Ghôl Rugby pushes the TFL engine to it's limits in order to provide an entirely new style of gameplay. Not only is Ghôl Rugby a brand-new gametype, it's also the first original gametype in Myth history that is FFA-based; Expect intense 4-way Rugby action!

The object of Ghôl Rugby is to get the ball (a flaming dwarf head) into your goal, and score more points than your opponents. However, this can be done many different ways; In order to win, you will need to carry, toss, shoot and blast the ball into your goal with a varieity of specialized units. Because of the many strategies you can use in Ghôl Rugby, you will find plenty of enjoyment playing solo or on a team.

As this is an original gametype, it plays very differently from the Myth you're used to. As such, we have also included a special training variant of the plugin, aptly named "Ghôl Rugby Training". This will give you a crash course on how to play and allow you to get a feel for how the units work. Although the training variant covers some very basic things about Ghôl Rugby, we also recommend that you check out the Ghôl Rugby site, as everything is covered there that you will need to know in order to devastate any person or team that faces you. We suggest you read it carefully, it may mean the difference between a commanding performance or a laughable defeat.

At only 3.3 megs, Ghôl Rugby is also one of Project Magma's smaller plugins. Download it today and join in for some Rugby!

Demise on the Plains/Mazzarin's Demise

Download Plains completes Project Magma's initial goal of porting all nine original Myth 2 maps to TFL and is possibly our most unique and interesting plugin to date. We skipped Raid on the Plains, but you'll find Demise on the Plains as well as three other FFA maps. Aside from the usual tactical abilities required in multi-play, Strife on the Plains also demands developing strategies like no other Myth map. Riot on the Plains is a 10-start Ghol riot with more than one bizarre twist to it. Slaughter on the Plains uses one of the most balanced and fun unit sets we can think of. Last, but far from least, Mazzarin's Demise, the long awaited and extremely addictive coop is included with this plugin. It pits you against the largest hoard of enemies ever seen in ANY Myth map. For more details, check out the coop section of this site.

As an added bonus, we have three Quicktime movies of the terrain courtesy of Oroboros; Panorama(155KB), Plains at Sunset(2.7MB), and Flyover(327KB) that demonstrate how much we loved working on this map.


Download Venice superbly rounds out the popular collection of Magma Myth 2 ports. Long in the making, it required innovative scripting to recreate collapsible wall models in the Myth TFL engine. In addition to the standard Myth 2 variant, you'll find four other meshes in the typical imaginative and fun Magma tradition. From carpet-bombing wars using air-strike flares and mortar shells, to massive ultra-dark team carnage, to more traditional lighter FFA fare, you'll not want to miss out on this one.

Proving/Killing Grounds

Download This popular Myth 2 map is now available for your TFL desires! Very true to the original, you will have just as much fun and excitement playing the light and dark meshes that were converted from Myth 2. However, that's not the end of it: In addition to the normal light and dark variants, expect to find new and original variants, such as a unit set full of all the giants the Myth series can offer! On other variants you might even find high explosives for your ghols to carry. As an added bonus, we have quieted the peasants to make sure you don't go insane while playing.


Download This map was built for the Return of the Fallen Lords 2 tournament. In addition to the relatively small download, It features 8 light starts on the classic carnage set, to make for a delightfully bloody situation. With all the fun of normal Carnage Light - times 2, you can expect this map to deliver in full games. However, don't be surprised if you find yourself surrounded by enemies... this map is not for the timid! Required for the RotFL2 tourney, and a must have for the rest of you.

The Bad/Untamed Lands

Download This Myrkridia-ridden wasteland is now yours for the playing!

Expect not only to find creative new unit sets to try out many a new strategy on, but also converted Myth 2 units as well, such as the Ghast, Mortar, Stygian Knight, even Alric and Balmung! There are many variants to play, but we at Project Magma definitely suggest that you don't miss "Soulblighter's Revenge" and "Sluglords- Anarchy".

DeadMan's Chest/Float

Download As ported to TFL, you'll find a few differences in this version compared to the original. Gameplay is as great as can be on the standard light and dark meshes ported from Myth 2, however there are also many other variants to play. One of the more popular meshes, "Dead Man's Treasure", features 4 different armies with completely different unit sets for a new twist in multiplayer TFL. The map also features a blind slugfest variant for you slug fans.

Drowned Kingdom/Empire

Download While this map needed to be modified in order to be successfully ported to TFL, it's still as fun as the Myth 2 version. In addition to the two standard light and dark meshes, we have included three others to make this swampy experience a bloody one! Expect large sets of all shapes and descriptions to compliment this wet environment. You'll find your good old TFL units alongside with the converted Myth 2 units on many occasion, which provides for new strategies and challenges.

Cracks/Clash in the Cloudspine

Download This classic Myth 2 map is now available to TFL fans, and it delivers! Models have been ported to make your TFL Cloudspine experience as genuine as possible, and there are no gameplay sacrifices. In addition to the standard light and dark meshes found on the Myth 2 version, you'll also find several fun and exciting new ones, all great for team play. One of these meshes features a giant ghols vs. dwarfs war, and another features a giant carpet bombing unit set.

Dead of Winter

Download The most chilling Myth 2 standard map is now available for TFL desecration... If you feel that the snow is too white, so do we-- That's why we fully expect you to be coloring it with your troops! This very beautiful landscape is complimented by the enormous levels of gore which are spilled upon it every time this map is played... a truly wonderful TFL addition!

Fight with your comrades on the hilltop, Wight the hell out of your unsuspecting victims, and enjoy the beautiful scenery that is Wabe in all it's glory. Also, explore the three new variants included in the plugin for even more varied experiences on the map. Arguably just as addictive as the Myth 2 original, so beware...


Mazzarin's Demise II

Download After scores of enjoyable games of the original Mazzarin's Demise, we decided to try to perfect it. Version 2 includes almost 100 improvements, tweaks and surprises, most notable of which is you can now play with up to eight players. You'll have to defeat several hundred more enemies who swarm at you at a more hectic pace; however, your own forces are now more powerful. Overall, the map is only slightly harder than the original, but we think it's much, much more fun and action-packed. Get the plugin before you're left out and stuck all alone in the lobby.

Congrats to Head, McChazo, HadieZ, Boy, Ducky, Rabiez and Kalamadea for being the first team to beat Mazzarin's Demise v.2 on Legendary. You can watch this team's amazing skill and tactics by downloading the film here.

Mazzarin's Demise

Download Mazzarin's Demise is a coop map much in the style of Shadow 2 and Flight 2 but with nearly twice the amount of enemy units of both maps combined! Journey back to the Wind Age with the most powerful Avatar to ever live and his army of heroes armed with enchanted weapons. History tells us that The Watcher laid an ambush so massive that even Mazzarin, finally spent of all his magic, was eventually surrounded and crushed under endless legions of undead. We dare you to prove there may have been a different outcome.

Congratulations to Apollo, Atombomb, Hadiez, McChazo, Rabiez, and Wrath for being the first team to beat Mazzarin's Demise on legendary difficulty! As their prize, they will each get a GfA2 CD. You can grab the film here.

This coop is part of the multi-player plugin, Plains.

If you're having difficulty defeating the watcher (as is to be expected), check out this analysis of Mazzarin's Demise by Oroboros.
