Port a CS 1.6 map to CS:S ?

Hi folks !! I was wondering if it is possible if you have the developer files of an CS 1.6 map ! To convert / port those to a CSS Map.. I mean to the SDK... and then recompile / remake it in Hammer editor ? That would be AWESOME !! Hope for a lot of positive posts ;-) cYa

    Porting one game's maps to another is illegal. (even though it seems like it is just an update to the same game) That is why you don't play on those 1.6 maps right now. They have to be revamped or reduxed or however the kids say it these days.

    Hmmm why should this be "illegal" ? if you are the owner / creator of that map ! why not use it in the other game u own too and port what you have done already to an other engine !? So mayn people do remakes of maps ^^ WHY SHOULD THIS BE ILLEGAL !? Guess U got something wrong..

    If you want to make a 1.6 map into source so badly then make it again, if that's too much work then get someone else to do it for you.

    its illegal because a lot of game company do not allowed their things to get into other games such as css to 1.6 and such but on some game they allowed it such as stalker. so thats it. no porting what so ever here

    Find the maps you'd like to be remade and see if the original creator will re-make them. If not, ask them for permission to remake them. Or you can by-pass copyrights and make it 10% different from the original. ;)

    Indeed, lots of entities are different in the Goldsource engine compared to source. Also you would have tones of invalid brushes. My advice, redo it from scratch on the Source engine. It would also be a good idea to improve the quality and detail this way.
