MAP to CSM Converter v2.2

 

This application was written by myself for importing .MAP files created with editors such as Hammer into Cartography Shop.  It will scan a .MAP file and generate a .CSM file with all dependent textures required by the .CSM file.  I've updated the application to fix light entity conversion and positioning so that a map may be lightmapped immediately upon loading into Cartography Shop.  All brushes are now separated for easier level modification.  The problem with shadow generation has also been resolved.

There was also a bug that caused the UV mappings for vertex data to be incorrect, this has now been fixed.  You can now load the converted CSM file directly into DarkBASIC Professional with correct texture alignment using my CSM file importer tool.

Now fixed silly title spelling error, also found a small problem that prevented Cartography Shop loading CSM files for map files that were based on entity brushes, i.e. func_door or Trigger entities.

Vertex normals are now saved as part of the CSM file, although they are currently configured to be assigned the same normal vector as the face normal.
