Is it possible to decompile a map (.bsp) and if so, how?

Title says it all.

Thanks in advance.

Try using google.

You should be aware though, that it will fuck up your brushwork, sometimes beyond repair, where you have to delete half the map and remake it yourself for it to compile like the original. A better solution would be to ask the original map maker for a copy of the vmf…

Google doesn’t give opinions like the one above.

If you can search properly, it might. :smug:


VMEX ppl

Download vmex, then set the map you want to have put out then open up the result in hammer.

Every time I run vmex it closes instantly, despite having Java Runtime 5 installed. It worked one day and I decompiled 2 maps, after that it just never worked again.
