Arth, in general, RichDiesals is still up. You might be able to grab stuff from there. Hit the link in my signature for learn mapping here.

Sure it is possible to use these tutorials but I think we should rewrite them with new pictures because the one RichDiesal used are very old and outdated.

Anybody can ask Darth G for permission to take over the tutorials ?

I think we should ask before using the tutorials.

Ok, I will start translating and upgrading some tutorials from http://www.mrwonko.de/tutorials/archive/index.php. The first one will be "Aufzug ohne Lip zu kennen" which I want to turn into a general tutorial about how to make elevators (with and without switch).

I´d like to write a tutorial about "Q3Map2Build" in "basic compile". Darth-Arth, could you add that? And maybe change "basic compile" to just "compiling" or something similar.

you can change it by yourself ;)

It's the sense of WiKi everybody with edit rights can edit every page.

But why not using Q3map2GUI in place of q3map2build ?

Cool! But how do I do that? Probably it´s easy but I don´t know it at the moment so tell me!

Why I don´t use Q3Map2GUI? Well I prefer Q3Map2Build, but I can write tutorials for both of them, no problem.

MrWonko wrote a short WiKi editing tutorial here: http://map-forge.net/wiki/doku.php?id=wiki:contributing

Q3map2GUI is based on Q3mapbuild, but has much more features and it is still under development.
