After some testing with it and BSP Factory, I have finally bought this awesome tool :)

BSP Factory 1.2 will have a .gls exporter :D

The toon renderer is totally awesome, I will definitely lightmap the levels of Sneak Behind with this :)

Very nice, works beautifully. One thing I just found out: if you take the lightmap and replace the black background colour with white (using the 'color range' selector in Photoshop), it's much easier to adjust contrast, apply blurring and the like without getting ugly black artifacts on polygonal edges due to 'colour bleeding' between the black background and white(ish) lit area's. Maybe an option for a future release? It really makes life a lot easier.
