    Generally a straight conversion is not possible as the resource types (especially materials and sounds) are way to different.

    You can try looking for a tool that converts the T3D file of an exported UE2 map into the format the UE3 editor expects for importing. Don't expect any actors to be converted correctly. Also note that you need to import materials, meshes, sounds, etc. before importing the map, otherwise import may fail or references to missing resources are cleared.

    just replace the opening and ending tags of the t3d file and remove all lights before rebuilding. (else UED will crash)


    are the tags the UE3 editor expects for importing

    ignore all warnings of missing resources or import them before imorting the t3d like Wormbo sayed.

    this always works for me. only need to remember to import into an subtractive map or export to an additive map afterwards.
