Yes, you take them from the .pk3 with winzip or pakscape and decompile it with Q3Map2. This is heavily frowned upon by the mapping community, however, so it's not a very good idea. Plus, it'll generally wipe out most of your entities and lights anyway.

too much trouble for an insignificent result.

not only are light entities wiped out, but textures are re-aligned and you usually get infinatly large brushes that screw everything up and take ages to fix.

just make your own SP level from scrach, you will feel much more satisfied in the end anyway.

[COLOR=red]ILLEGAL[/COLOR], I think? Read the EULA supplied with the game. How many more threads do we need on this? :rolleyes:


I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.

And when those questions involve breaking the law, those questions really shouldn't be asked, never mind answered.

The GamingForums FAQWarez & Piracy Requests for warez and warez links will be treated as piracy. This includes requests or provision of CD keys, cracks, serials, and pirated software or movies of any kind. The promotion of peer-to-peer client software is also strictly forbidden. Any member found to be breaching this guideline, will be banned from Gaming Forums permanently.[/quote]Decompiled maps count as 'hacked source'. I'd say that categorises them as software piracy. [quote=Raven Software's EULA]YOU SHALL NOT: • Exploit this Program or any of its parts commercially, including but not limited to use at a cyber cafe, computer gaming centre or any other location-based site. Activision may offer a separate Site License Agreement to permit you to make this Program available for commercial use; see the contact information below. • Use this Program, or permit use of this Program, on more than one computer, computer terminal, or workstation at the same time. • Make copies of this Program or any part thereof, or make copies of the materials accompanying this Program. • Copy this Program onto a hard drive or other storage device; you must run this Program from the included CD-ROM (although this Program itself may automatically copy a portion of this Program onto your hard drive during installation in order to run more efficiently). • Use the program, or permit use of this Program, in a network, multi-user arrangement or remote access arrangement, including any online use, except as otherwise explicitly provided by this Program. • Sell, rent, lease, license, distribute or otherwise transfer this Program, or any copies of this Program, without the express prior written consent of Activision. • Reverse engineer, derive source code, modify, decompile, disassemble, or create derivative works of this Program, in whole or in part. • Remove, disable or circumvent any proprietary notices or labels contained on or within the Program. • Export or re-export this Program or any copy or adaptation in violation of any applicable laws or regulations.

Sorry for getting ratty about that, but the amount of times people ask this question is really insane, considering it tells you right in the EULA (which people are supposed to read before installing the game) that it's not allowed. Not meaning to pick on you specifically, so sorry if you feel singled-out.
