You don't need any other program to make maps for Jedi Academy/Jedi Outcast other than GtK Radiant. I suggest you download the 1.4.0 version, it can be found here: http://eliteforce2.filefront.com/file/GTKRadiant;26097
Here are some tutorial links that might be helpful. RichDiesal's Tutorials (Works with both Jedi Academy and Jedi Outcast really) RichDiesal's JK2Radiant Mapsource - Welcome! Bubba's Arena Tutorials (Made for another game but it uses the same engine as Academy/Outcast so those work aswell) Bubba's Arena Mapping : Your editing resource for Quake 3
Good luck with the mapping! :)
he wants to edit ingame maps If I understood him right for that you'll have to find a BSP to .MAP converter without that you cant edit ingame maps and I'm pretty sure it'S not really legal to edit ingame maps :( EXEPT the ones Raven released withit'ssourcefiles you can edit those
so where can I download a BSP to .MAP converter ? Also I want to edit other maps created by other mappers woul I still need a BSP to .MAP converter ?
Yes you will but DONT EVEN THINK ABOUT THAT without asking for permission first ! :deal:
It is just out of curiosity, I do not desire to become a mod thief, but how do I get this or where do i get this BSP to .MAP converter ? For some reason whenever I tried to open a map in jka through gtk radiant, the gtk program freezes.

strange anyway I dont know about a BSP to map converter but I'm pretty sure there is one just google for that I'll keep my hands from that about the GTK crashes... dunno did you export your map to bsp ?
no I did something called import, I believe I imported the map and later gtkradiant froze. and i think i also tried that again by changing the file extension from bsp to map.
Worse than most terrible

Changing the extension doesn't actually change the data.
'Decompiling' a map from .BSP to .MAP is done by tweaking a few options in the command line using q3map2.exe Sorry I can't give much more information, but I'm too lazy to type. Google around for more information on the q3map2.exe stuff, and make sure you have permission to do everything you're doing.

command line is
q3map2.exe -game ja -convert -format map BSPNAME.bsp
