How do you turn a .map file to bsp? I want to test out my WIP:Helms Deep.I'm new to the mapping stuff.

Thats an easy one. Go to the Bsp tab at the top of your screen. Then select the bsp type you want. If you select fullvis that is for a final release, relight is of course relighting the map, for a simple test id use fastvis(1/2). If you just can load it in the game then make sure there are no spaces in the title of the map.

If I want to test my map I use bsp FullVis

you must wait until the the black box says something like this

62 seconds elapsed

there need't stand 62
