Welcome to the (new) ROTTpository

Formerly the ROTTpository was hosted by Freewebs, but since the recent surge in activity and the creation of the Rise of the Triad HQ, the ROTTpository has been merged with it, allowing for large file storage and majorly increased bandwidth.

I decided to create the ROTTpository initially because the only place that stored ROTT related files had gone down years ago, and I thought it would be a shame to have all the existing files disappear off the net. I originally created it on Freewebs after taking the advice of another member of the ROTT community. Currently you can find a plethora  of ROTT content on this site, ranging from map editors, maps, converters, and other goodies.

If you happen to have a ROTT user level you have created (or just one not listed here) feel free to contact me and I will add it. This also applies to any other ROTT related file you may have in your possession.

If you do happen to be a fan of Rise of the Triad, please drop by the ROTT editing and modding forum or 3D Realms ROTT subforum. These are the two only ROTT communities, and your contribution to either would certainly be appriciated greatly.

And in regards to the editing section, if you happen to be interested in ROTT level creation, or just happen to want to mess around with the editors for fun and have questions, drop by one of the above sites mentioned. They may be low in activity, but someone may be able to help, or your question may have been answered there already.

And as a final note, all files on this site are in “rar” format. If you are unfamiliar with this format, go to the 7zip site and download there program. It is an excellent decompression tool that supports many formats.

Now…on to the mandatory FAQ:

Frequently Asked Questions:

What is the ROTTpository?

This is a site to store various Rise of the Triad files on the net. This includes:

  • Map/Wad/Sound Editors
  • Solo and Com-bat levels
  • Wad files
  • Miscellaneous ROTT files

Help! One of these files don’t work!

Not a surprise really if its one of the maps, as I haven’t really tested any of them. A little too busy at the moment to do so. If you’re having trouble with getting any of these files to work, feel free to email me at Lawstiker (at) gmail (dot) com and I will try to assist you as best I can, if time permits.

I can’t get any of these files to open! What gives!?

First I must ask if you know its a rar file. Most people still use zip compression, but rar is a better compression format, so you will need the proper program to get the map files out such as Winrar or 7zip

Alternatively, if you’re using these programs and you are still unable to get the files out, there may be a problem on my end. Feel free to inform me by dropping me a line at the above address if you are having a issue.

Hey! I remember seeing a file you don’t have!

This is another “contact me about it” situation. I may not be checking around for maps all the time, and if you know of a map that isn’t here tell me about it and I will add it.

I’m working on a map; can I upload it here?

I would love to add people’s maps here as a more permanant location over sites such as rapidshare/megashare/speedyshare. Send me an email with the map file and I will add it as soon as I can.
