Question: What is an BSP File?

Have you found, downloaded or received an BSP file, but don't know which software program is required to open it?

Before attempting to open an BSP file, you'll need to determine what kind of file you are dealing with and whether it is even possible to open or view the file format.

Answer: Files which are given the .BSP extension are known as Valve Hammer Map files, however other file types may also use this extension. If you are aware of any additional file formats that use the BSP extension, please let us know.

How to open a BSP file:

The best way to open an BSP game file is to simply double-click it and let the default assoisated application open the file. If you are unable to open the file this way, it may be because you do not have the correct application associated with the extension to view or edit the BSP file.

This game file format was added to our database by a visitor to this site, but no additional information was provided. We have yet to investigate this file type further, or there was not enough information available at the time to report accurately on the format.

Please check back soon for more information as we are constantly updating our file descriptions based on search frequency.

Tip: Try to open the BSP file using a text-editor such as Notepad, as many file types contain simply contain unformatted plain-text and can viewed correctly using this method.

.BSP files are Game map files created by Valve. Unfortunately, after searching on the web for a week now, I have yet to find any application that allows users to EDIT the BSP maps which I am looking for and brought me to this site, unfortunately, the information here is the same as every other place I have found, other than being able to post my own message like this.

...which has its uses!

I think you'll need to look at decompiling the BSP first, try looking at 'entspy' or 'VMEX' or maybe even 'BSP2MAP'.
