I've seen halo maps ported to CS 1.6, and source. so I know its possible to do it in both. i was wondering how to do this. I can't find anything that would allow me to rip the .bsp in any of my software (dothalo, adi, h2x, dark matter, insolence, and entity. I don't see anything in any of those programs to allow me to save the .bsp

even after I manage to get the .bsp out, how would I go about saving it as a compatable state for CS 1.6 to handle? (I don't own source, nor does my computer possess the ability to run it, so no that won't work)


any help is appreciated.
when installing the .net framework earlier, it told me to close all other programs... ...I opened more, just to be defiant.

the thing is they probably wernt "ported"
the mapper probably just coppied the halo map.

I also doubt they are "ported" and not just rebuilt to look like it.

It is much much much easier to rebuild than to make a program capable of converting a huge messy lump of data like a game map without horrifying errors.

but the bsp is exactly the same as the bsp is for CS. just, the .map that halo uses holds all the data needed to load (such as character models and weapons and projectiles and scenery, etc. genearlly anything you see and hear). the CS map is just textures and a mesh you walk on.


if I extract the .bsp, then the textures, it should work in theory.

There are major formatting differences between the games which makes it extremely difficult to port. No matter how you slice it you are going to have to do most of it by hand.

maybe the ppl who made the halo maps just made the map by scratch and either looking at the halo map or observing the map through in-game.
