I just got into level design, specifically for Jedi Academy. I've DL'd Gtkradiant, got it all installed, got a basic level going and am trying to devmap it. One problem. I keep getting 'could not locate firstmap.bsp'. Which is perfectly resonable since there is no firstmap.bsp in my maps folder. Except every tutorial i've read so far has told me to save the file as a .map file. And I don't have the option to save it as .bsp file within GtkRadiant. So. Would someone mind informing a lowly newb as to what in the hell he's not getting? There some additional info I'm supposed to DL? Maybe a pluggin/new prog? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. - T

You have to compile a map to save it as bsp.

and now you think: how to compile it as a bsp??? go (in gtk) to bsp/bsp_meta...thingy when you pressed there, its compressing. (a black window with text appears) wait until it disappears.
Ah. Thank you both for the speedy and heplful replies. See ya round.
