Hexen II Original Source Maps
Hello everybody! :-)

For about one year I'm working on a very ambitious mission pack for Hexen II. I learn new things everyday but the best lesson is of course to look at what the elders did. Maybe I don't use the right tool, but the bsp decompilation tool I use (Quark) is very user unfriendly and hard to use/understand.

So I wondered... John Romero released the original map files for Quake some years ago. Do you know whether Raven did the same for Hexen II map files?
Or have you heard about a friendly and simple decompilation tool compatible with Hexen II?

Thank you so much in advance for your precious feedback. :-)
Hexen2 files can be opened with Quark but there's no way to convert them to map files. I did some fail attempts with winbspc_1.4 and they all crashed on Win7. The result would be a mesh anyway as winbspc only converts as if, with lots of chunks pressed into a big cube. Clearing that up would be a waist of time although I did once with some maps.

I don't think you can find the original maps on the net as Raven isn't that generious as Quake.
I think.
Quik search for decompiller : 
Wow! Never managed to find that, and even better: seems it works!
Thank you so much ! :-) 
thanks for posting that six-shoota. ive been wondering how they created complex objects that both move and rotate, like the levitating coffin in the first level. can likely get to the bottom of it now.
