How to convert v47 to v46
(see pics - https://cloud.mail.ru/public/HmyW/3KBeaHCpf)
with HEX Editor Neo:

1. Open your map (*.bsp v47) in HEX Editor Neo
2. Select the bit 2f (pic. "01 v47")
3. Use the tool to fix bits (pic. "02 tools")
4. Click the final bit to change it from "2f" to "2e" (pic. "03 2f")
5. Click OK to save your result (pic. "04 2e")
6. Check your result (pic. "05 v46) - now it's v46 *.bsp file
7. Save changes and close your file.

To edit items directly in a new *.bsp file use QuArK. It seems to be easy enough and there is no need to write a manual for it.

To fix "ad_content" troubles:
1. Open a map in QuArK and select "Entitites" section.
2. Select the whole text and copy it into Notepad.
3. Replace all "advertisement" by "func_static" and remove all the lines with "cellid".
4. Replace an old text in QuArK by a new one from Notepad.
5. Save the map and close it.

To fix some textures' troubles:
1. Open a map in a Hex Editor (f.e. Hex Editor Neo).
2. Replace "original_texture" (f.e. "textures/base_wall/concrete_ow2") by "your_new_texture" (f.e. textures/base_wall/concretevow2). NB! Quantity of symbols MUST be the same.
3. Save the map and close it.
4. Write a shader (add lines into the *.shader file ( s ) of the map):

textures/base_wall/concretevow2 //new name of your new virtual texture
{
{
map textures/base_wall/concrete.tga //link to a necessary real texture
rgbGen identity
}
{
map $lightmap
blendfunc filter
rgbGen identity
tcGen lightmap
}
}

There is no more archive of QL. You can find necessary files here:

https://cloud.mail.ru/public/2Z2J/JstK5GQLJ

Just download them to corresponded folders.
