Okay, I have a problem.

I have downloaded Minerva from the bit-torrent link, and installed it in the default directory. My steam was installed in the default way, so this should be 100% allright. Then I tried to run Minerva, but it launched Episode 1 instead.

I then shut down steam completely, and tried again. Still the same problem. Anyone have a fix for this?

I remember playing the first minerva map ages ago, and I forgot about it. Now there is a lot more content, and I am totally trough with HL-HLE1-HLE2 I need some new challenges. And Minerva really looks like it has those!

Well I'm no tech support, but it may help with a little more info. Did you run the patched installer (executable)? Just to be clear, what was the "default directory"? Did Minerva show up in your game's list when you restarted steam? Any other errors? (I guess you're sure you got the whole file through bit-torrent?) Did you try running the game straight from the game's list rather than a desktop shortcut? Do you have any small rodents living in your computer? Were you honest in filing your last tax return? (sorry, I seem to have lost my way here...)

metastasis_pached.exe -> Yes

Directory I installed it: C:/programfiles/steam/steamapps/SourceMods/metastasis

Run from game list -> Yes

And it shows that wonderfull citadel every time (aka, episode 1)

Have you deleted the entire metastasis folder before installing the latest release?

If all else fails, I can recommend lighting a few candles, spreading some incense and (in extreme cases) sacrificing a goat.

To improve chances, make particular reference to the most beautiful goddess. In her pride, Minerva (aka Aphrodite) will shower your computer with blessings hoping to bribe you into announcing her the most beautiful goddess.

Minerva would be equivalent to Athena rather than Aphrodite AKA Venus, silly. You wouldn't want him to make that mistake in the ceremony and tick her off! :)

.... yes. Of course.

I think I've got Aphrodite on the brain after playing Galatea again recently... bah.
