Hello, I play Jedi Knight Jedi Academy(JK3), and I have been asked to edit the mp/ffa3 map for the TSE clan (True Sith Empire) I have not used GTKRadiant in about 5 -8 months? Maybe a year. Can someone tell me how to load shaders please! I open pakscape, then I open the assets. Find the texture, shaders folder, but then what do I do? I do have the map converted into .map! By the help of Didz (Modder), and Scooper (Makermod Modder). All Permission Granted from LucasArts, company. TSE - True Sith Empire is recruiting! www.truesithempire.darkbb.com - Register -Post an application! Enjoy! Jedi Knight Jedi Academy Only!
Decompiling base maps is completely... ILLEGAL. But if you really want to do that, there are two options: 1. Contact LEC or Raven. 2. Use Map Modding. The second option is easier.

You're allowed to use the Jedi Academy things in mods. Haven't you SEEN the number of Reborn skins/desaturates? Honestly, if it was illegal to use Raven's assets, JK3files would be shut down. Idiot.
If the shader file is in the shader folder in a .pk3 in your gamedata/base folder and all text paths are correct and the textures are in a texture folder in a .pk3 in your base folder and you've added the shader file to the shaderlist.txt, it should all kinda just work.
It's illegal to decompile someone else's maps and claim them as your own (a.k.a: playing with one of mace's maps then claiming you did it)
It is however, ok to decompile a map like ffa3 and edit it as long as you give credit to ravensoft and such.
I have not said it was mine, I am editing it for -=TSE=-Emperor Hanzo. From my TSE, Clan. He thinks the origional is to plain.
BTW, are you Sato, School of war Map? Seto?
To Jeff_Katarn, the op said "I do have the map converted into .map" so he doesn't need to decompile anything. Unless that was a typo and he meant to say he doesn't have it.
But anyway, about shaders, I'm a bit confused. It's been so long since I had a newly installed version of JK3 that wasn't set up for any kind of modding, but shouldn't the base shaders just...work? From what I remember, you shouldn't need to copy them into your gamedata/base/shaders folder since they're in the original assets.
FAKE EDIT: Yeah I just checked my shaders folder and the only base shader files in there are system and common. Did you maybe...I don't know, delete your shaderlist??? Seems like a stretch but you never know.
No, I have not deleted my shader list, and your right I said 'I do.'
FAKE EDIT AFTER HOLDING POST FOR 5 MINUTES: My shader list looks like this in my C:\ProgramFiles(x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\jediacademy\GameData\base\maps\base\shaders

But it does not look like that in the notepad, it is, smudged together, yavinwedgeteststaspirstusiegeskiesrooftop .....etc
Would I need to copy this over?
Or, anyone have a copy of their base folder to reinstate mine to fix this problem even further?
Wait wait wait, double check that file path there. Gamedata/base/maps/base/shaders? It should just be Gamedata/base/shaders.
Now the shaders folder is in gamedata/base, do I get the .shader file out of the assets? or, what?

Actually no it's not. My understanding is that the law arises from misuse of the Q3Map compiler, not the assets themselves.
