File extension .BSP
|Quake 2 Map Format
The BSP file extension is associated with the Quake engine game map file. BSP stands for binary space partitioning which is a method of dividing a scene in various cells and 3D polygons. A BSP file contains information including textures, models, properties, objects and entities required for the scene in a 3D environment. These types of files are generally found in first-person shooter games like the Quake engine game.
File Structure and Technical Details
BSP files are compiled binary files with numerous sections representing different parts of game environment, such as models, textures or things. Every BSP section has its own header, sub-division and length. The size of these types of files can vary from hundreds of bytes to multiple megabytes depending on complexity of game level. These files have great stability as they are compiled. BSP files are related to other game map files such as M8, FFW, MAP, and ILP.
After installing the required software, the operating system will usually automatically associate an unknown file type (in this case .BSP) with the new application. If this does not happen, we can help the system a bit by selecting the software for it, which it should always use to open files with the .BSP extension.
When choosing the software we can select the system to use this software every time.
Using it for the first time it is good to check whether the .BSP file opened in the application can be read by us and opens in a way that allows us to use it. If everything is in order, select this option the next time you open a file with the .BSP extension. However, if the file has not opened correctly, we have to look for a different software, with which we can open files with the .BSP extension. Select a different software from our list and install it on your computer. After the software is installed, repeat inspection openings of a .BSP file. Sometimes you have to repeat the operation several times.
If none of the programs listed by us to work with the .BSP file has not meet your expectations, you can try searching other websites. But remember to avoid downloading programs "that can open any file". These applications not only have very limited functionality, but may also expose you to expense tens of dollars when purchasing a license.
In the vast majority of cases you will find the program dedicated to support the .BSP file, or any other file format. In addition, there is a chance that it will be a free program, and its functionality (concerning the .BSP file) will be extended to the maximum.
It is also good to check
- if the .BSP file has no errors
- or if it has been copied (or downloaded by the browser) thoroughly
