Map Compiling

Post by El Poncho » Sun Oct 16, 2011 4:56 pm

Couple of ?'s here.

I've been using the bsp menu in radiant to compile and test maps but ran across shLep's site while digging through what tutorials are still left out there. What is the best way to go about compiling maps? Am I totally missing something here? (I'm using gtkradiant 1.4 so I'm assuming I'm not using the latest version of q3map2?)

The bsp menu doesn't seem to give you many of the suggested switches that shLep talks about here:

Ah...the questions...and I haven't even gotten to the fun part of scripting!

Yep, I'm pretty familiar with Tram design. Tunnelram was kind enough to help me get my first map released. I've been skimming their forums, or what's left of them, as well.

I wish Nib's site wasn't gone with the wind, I really liked his explanations and tutorials... :cry:

Because I'm still unable to test my maps on my mac, I've actually been compiling it in Windows from the pulldown menu with the lighting enabled. I used this compile:

Q3Map2: (test) BSP -meta, -vis, -fast, -light, -fast, -super2 -filter

That way I can compile and then test right away. I have been just transferring my .map over to my laptop running windows and then opening it and compiling it. (after i've transferred the necessary textures etc of course)

Takes about a 60sec or so to compile I think.
