Quake Modding - FTEQW and DOS - Trenchbroom - #0 Setup
This is the discussion for the Quake Modding - FTEQW and DOS - TrenchBroom - #0 Setup video. If you run into any issues please comment below and we'll see about fixing that issue.

So in order for this tutorial to work you will need a copy of Quake. Disc or Steam version will suffice.
Buy Quake on Steam

You will also need our FTEQW engine, mapping tools and wad files.
FTEQW - Advanced modern Quake Engine supporting a huge variety of platforms and graphics options/API's
TrenchBroom - Map editor
EricWA - BSP, VIS and Lighting tools
EricWA Docs - Documentation for the EricWA tools
WADS - Quake texture data

TrenchBroom map compile options - In order they need to be
Name -> Basic Compile
Working Directory -> ${MAP_DIR_PATH}

Export Map(default is fine)

Run Tool (QBSP)
Select qbsp or vis.exe(Windows) for the tool
Parameters -> ${MAP_BASE_NAME} ${MAP_BASE_NAME}.bsp

Run Tool (VIS)
Select vis or vis.exe(Windows) for the tool
Parameters -> ${MAP_BASE_NAME}.bsp

Run Tool (LIGHT)
Select light or light.exe(Windows) for the tool
Parameters -> ${MAP_BASE_NAME}.bsp

Copy Files(BSP)
Source -> ${WORK_DIR_PATH}/${MAP_BASE_NAME}.bsp
Target -> ${GAME_DIR_PATH}/id1/maps/${MAP_BASE_NAME}.bsp

Copy Files(LIT) <- Colored Lightmaps
Source -> ${WORK_DIR_PATH}/${MAP_BASE_NAME}.lit
Target -> ${GAME_DIR_PATH}/id1/maps/${MAP_BASE_NAME}.lit

Copy Files(LUX) <- Directional light directional data. Use -lux in the light parameters
Source -> ${WORK_DIR_PATH}/${MAP_BASE_NAME}.lux
Target -> ${GAME_DIR_PATH}/id1/maps/${MAP_BASE_NAME}.lux

For the DOS setup just duplicate Basic-Compile and change the Copyfiles to the exact path of your DOS directory.

That's everything! If anyone runs into any issues or anything like that please do message below and we'll see if we can't things fixed for you.
