bspfix is a command-line tool designed to convert Half-Life: Blue Shift Half-Life: Blue Shift maps to the standard Half-Life Half-Life BSP format and vice versa.


bspfix effectively converts bs maps, allowing them to be used once again with modder tools. Moreover, BSPFix has the capability to convert regular Half-Life Half-Life BSPs to the Half-Life: Blue Shift Half-Life: Blue Shift format if necessary.


The release of the Half-Life: Blue Shift Half-Life: Blue Shift expansion by Gearbox Software Gearbox Software resulted in a modification of the format, rendering the maps incompatible with map decompilers and other tools created by modders.


To utilize BSPFix, simply drag a BSP file onto the executable and confirm the conversion by typing y at the Command Prompt.

Tip.pngTip:It is strongly advised to keep a backup of the original map for safekeeping purposes.

Sample output:

bspfix ba_canal1.bsp

Based on bshift_swap by prearle

Blue Shift format .bsp file
Press y to convert to Half-Life format .bsp
