i think its max's fault (2013) but whenever i use halo CE BSP tag converter or aether to export the BSP for gephyrophobia into OBJ, max imports the OBJ with all sorts of flipped normals or something. the model is a bloody mess. Anyone know how i can get the bsp for geph properly? or anyone have the model already sitting around?

Make sure "Import as single mesh" is checked. That's what I had to do in 3ds max 2014 to make sure everything isn't messed up. Also, make sure 'backface cull' is checked once the mesh is imported.
