    change the path "E:\Dungeon Keeper 2\ " -to were you have DK2 installed

    also in the "Start in:" box "E:\Dungeon Keeper 2" ...do the same

    Then you start with this shortcut and when you have a "save" in the game
    and want continue to play another time
    then you start with the original DK2.exe (or your original shortcut)
    and load your save

    This might help if you have a nVIDIA card installed
    to make DK2 crash less on W10.

    1. Right click on your desktop, choose NVIDIA Control Panel
    2. Choose, Adjust desktop color settings (to the left)
    3. Choose, Other applications control color settings > Apply
    4. Choose, Manage 3D settings (to the left)
    5. Choose, the tab > Program Settings
    6. (1. Select a program to customize search for dkii.exe (If you don’t see it already)
    7. Go to Texture filtering – Trilinear optimization > make it Off.
    (and save often)

    (And don't forget to read my ReadMe files (if there is one) for each map before playing them
    it may help

    Thanks Whynot,

    i did so. I changed the shortcut of Abbey Road accordingly and DK started. But in the skirmish's maps list there are following maps available. No Abbey Road. Fun fact is that I didn't mdify the shortcuts of the shown maps, but they are listed.

    Is it the right way just to copy/paste your map data to the according game data folders?

    You're supposed to launch the newly made shortcut, not the original DK2 exe. The point is to access the levels via level select, and this is how you do it. It's essentially launching the game with extra commands. You launch the shortcut and it brings you right into the level. Additional note but, playing maps via Skirmish menu will overwrite any custom configurations made to enemy Keeper AI, replacing them with the settings of the AI Type from the Skirmish mode.

    This is unfortunately the only way to play custom made single player maps. There's no streamlined method currently, no sort of launcher for example as no one's made anything like that.

    I personally have only one shortcut just called Level Select and I change the target location to whatever map I'm going to play before I play it, keeps things kind of organized and simple. Whynot is suggesting making a bunch of premade shortcuts so you don't have to bother changing them after they're made.

    I do use the newly made short cut, after i insert the path into the target line like described in the read me. Neverthless it starts DK2 like when using the original DK2 exe, not in level select. Very strange.

    This was clearifying.. but if you play a custom made singelplayer map
    and make a save because you want to play it later on, then you start with
    a shortcut that point directly to DKII.exe (or with DKII.exe directly),
    then you must choose "Singelplayer" mode and then start by choosing your save.

    True..

    I'm not suggesting making a bunch of premade shortcuts as I already have made them
    in the download file, I've made so you only have to change the path in each shortcut once,
    this way you don't have to do this every time you will play another map as
    Metal Gear Rex suggest and have to do it

    Can you screenshot the shortcut's properties and post it?

    Really odd, it *looks* good to go so I'm not sure what the problem is.

    Normally, if you input the mapname wrong and try to play a map through level select, the game will start but then immediately close out during the initial loading as it cannot find the map. So there's no issue there then. Really not sure.

    About "Mad King", should have been included in the 88 maps file
    but I missed this one (strange), so there was 87 maps

    And "The Riddle 3", completes the sequence
