Modding tips

  • Unlike the first game, Witchaven II came with the BUILD map editor included on the CD.
  • SMK files are usually played from the game CD. If the game is started with the LOCAL parameter, they will be played from the game directory instead and can thus be replaced in mods.
  • The SMK files are version SMK2. Unfortunately, version SMK4 files (which are what RAD Tools makes) do not appear to work as replacements.
