whenever i make a map then save and when i compile it like halfway through it said "connection timed out,check to make shure you have a registered versoin of q3maps or turn off bsp monitering in prefs" i dont want to turn of bsp monitering because i get the custom lights that way ...what should i do
I didn't make it!
Try getting q3map2gui. Its basically a program that makes the option to control your compiles easier and you do not need to have radiant open while compiling, which takes alot of time.
Heres a tutorial on how to set it up.
