Like if I want to take a map from a Pk3 file and edit or take things from it (with the owners permission of course) but the pk3 doesnt have the .map file in it, is there any way I can open the map? or is the map file required? - Demon

I'm a fairly n00b mapper, but I believe that the .map file itself is required. The .bsp file is a combination of various files created during the compile process, and I don't think it's possible to seperate them back out. However, if you want to take textures or music that's in the .pk3 file, you can do that - but make sure you're not breaching copyright! Xono:saber:

Well I don't know how he did that. I suppose it is possible in some way, but I don't know what it is

Q3Map2, the compiler, is also capable of decompiling maps. Using DOS (the command line) you need to do the following (roughly...it will vary per PC) C: cd\ cd "Program Files\GTKRadiant-1.4" q3map2.exe -game ja -convert -format map -fs_basepath "C:/Program Files/Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy/Gamedata" "C:/Program Files/Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy/Gamedata/base/maps/themap.bsp"

Oh and I think this is a very appropriate time to (yet again) say SEARCH BEFORE YOU POST. I've said this several times now and you would have got your answer hours ago if you had done a thorough search before you post. I think now I've told you how to do it I'm allowed to rant about that, no?

Yeah, that's what I did to take a look at the map. And I must agree with Wade, it gets very annoying to answer this stuff over and over.
