I'm searching for a programm that converts BSP-Files to Map files (for Quake3 right now, but JK2 files shouldn't be too much different)...

If you do so, you will lose all textures and patches.

Well, some buy the programmers of the radiant-editor a drink for their autosave-function!

I almost learned the hard way about editing and pak-ing at 3 o'clock in the morning! :rolleyes:

But I have it back...

the program you were looking for it called bspc.exe and its with radiant/q3map. its pretty unreliable tho, as would be expected.

Actually yes, there is a tool availible called DeBSP which will take a compiled BSP file and decompile it into its map file.

Though I'm not the biggest fan of this tool, because it makes it far to easy for talentless mappers to convert maps from other FPS games with little or no creative contribution other than texture replacement.
