It sounds like your just trying to text edit a .bzw map in notepad if I'm right?

Go to were you saved your map,
Right click,
Click "open with",
click notepad and press "open",

Hope that helped :D

The problem is not the wings-to-bzw exporter, what you want is bzw-to-obj conversion.
The answer is here... http://my.bzflag.org/bb/viewtopic.php?f=40&t=10226
from bzflag, use /saveworld -o fiename.obj
then import that file into wings.

Another neat trick for newbie mappers is to find your config.cfg file, and edit:
set showCoordinates 1
Take a look at my Defender game mode concept.

Thinking is not an automatic process. A man can choose to think or to let his mind stagnate, or he can choose actively to turn against his intelligence, to evade his knowledge, to subvert his reason. If he refuses to think, he courts disaster: he cannot with impunity reject his means of perceiving reality.

Can you provide more detail? What said "denied"? Is there more to the error message? What steps did you go through to get the error? And so on...
