Hey, guys this is my frist post, and my frist map.
im not sure if im posting this in the right spot, anyways. i cant get sof2map.exe to work. i know you have to go thro that program to make the map work for jo. well, okay so i open JK2Radiant.exe and load my map, then i go to the Bsp tap and pick Bsp Fullvis. then it opens the sof2map.exe, a dos window. it closes right when it opens, and so it doesnt make the .bsp map. im useing XP, so it there a settings i need to change to make it work?
any help with this really would help. thanks a bunch, Misty

The problem with XP is that it doesn't show the text inside the DOS box... and more than often that text is kinda important ;) If it did not create a .bsp file that means sof2map encountered an error in which case you need to find out what error it is and attempt to fix it. Be warned, sometimes noone on this planet can figure out certain errors... it's a tough job getting a map to compile when you start off but eventually you'll get used to it.
Anyhoo, back to the problem, try searching your computer for a file called 'junk.txt' .. hopefully that has the text needed in it (sof2map writes this text file with whatever is in the DOS window)
