Wintextract Wintextract is a simple program designed to extract "embedded" textures from Half-Life BSP maps. The program is highly user-friendly and easy to operate. All you need to do is to specify the map file and the location where the WAD file containing the textures from the map will be saved, then click on the "Extract" button. It should be noted, however, that the program saves the WAD files without extension; users are advised to manually add the appropriate file extension when saving the extracted textures.

  • Simplifies the process of extracting textures from maps in Half-Life BSP format, allowing users to quickly and easily obtain texture files without requiring any technical expertise. Moreover, the program can extract WAD files from any .BSP map, making it a highly versatile tool for users working with multiple maps in their projects.


  • One of the notable downsides of Windtextract is that the program doesn't automatically add file extensions to WAD files without file extensions, which may cause inconvenience for users who are not aware of this limitation.
