  • Open Arena
  • Quake 3 Arena/Team Arena
  • Quake Live
  • Return to Castle Wolfenstien
  • Soldier of Fortune II
  • Star Trek Elite Force

Q3Map2 was designed to replace the Q3Map.exe that comes with QERadiant, GtkRadiant and GMAX Tempest. However, there are significant enhancements that require a little twiddling to use, such as faster lighting and enhanced surface production.
