    I just downloaded tr_walkway to give it a try, but whenever I downloaded it, it came in as a rar file. When I placed it in the maps folder it wouldn't come up when I clicked on create a server. Anyone know how to covert the rar file into bsp?

    Thanks ahead of time.

    Rar is pretty common to be honest. A few years back it was odd to see but now 7z has taken it's place as the uncommon one. Speaking of which you're one to talk, mr 7z contest map megapack.

    That shaved off ~200MB, there was valid reason to use the more obscure format.

    Personally, I prefer maps to be uploaded in bz2 so that I can upload them to my fast dl quickly and easily. I usually find it annoying when they're in any other format because I have uncompress and then recompress the map to get it on server. Yeah, that doesn't take very long to do, but it's still a small annoyance that I've grown to dislike quite a bit.

    Dl 7zip: http://7-zip.org/ it will allow you to uncompress the .rar and once uncompressed the map should be in .bsp format.

    Why did you bother to find and bump a 3 year old thread and not bother to read it. There's 8 replies before yours, it's not really a minefield to find your answer in this thread
