Sorry, maybe a dump question but how does one play these maps? They are marked as special and reference some assets that at least I don't posses.

To play that maps create a shortcut(if you haven't one already) of dkII.exe and go to the properities
and there to the register shortcut and write additionally behind the line Target ...Dungeon Keeper 2\DKII.EXE" -q -level "levelname"
(levelname->for example polar_nights, Polar_Nights2...).

Yep thanks, of course. Actually tried with OpenKeeper and it outright just crashed. It works with the official DK 2 of course, quite heavy modifications on the map :)
