How to open .t3d unreal engine 1 map in unreal editor 4.19?I exported one of maps from old jazz jackrabbit 3 demo from unreal editor 1 and I was trying to import it to Unreal Editor 4.19,but I can't open it because it seems not to support this file format extensions.Can you tell me why it's happening?Should I downgrade ue4?

T3D format is very engine-dependent. It is not supposed to pass data between different versions of the same generation engines (for example, T3D is not intended to be compatible between UE4.10 and UE4.11 etc). Even more, you're trying to import T3D saved with UE1 into UE4 ...

Anyway, UE4 doesn't have T3D import. It can SAVE objects to that format, but can't read. I've quickly verified UE4 code, it has some footprints showing that T3D import existed before (probably in UE3), but the code entirely stripped from UE4. The only scene format which is supported here is Fbx (it also mentions Obj, but it is not capable of storing complex scenes).

I'd suggest you looking at this project:
https://github.com/xtremexp/UT4X-Converter

Probably it is what you're looking for.

Well and .t3d files in unreal engine/editor 4 got very shrinked and deformed maps.In UE3=UDK .t3d imported maps got only transparent wireframes.Btw I'll try this application that you suggested me.Do I have to compile these files from github?

No idea, I've never used that tool. Check "Releases" tab, or probably there will be a link to another web page with ready to use files.

Are you going to try someday at least once?Just saying I also found this link https://www.epicgames.com/unrealtournament/forums/unreal-tournament-development/ut-development-level-design/9285-ut4-converter-0-8-9-01-08-2017?18198=

Yes, this is that tool.
No, I'm not interested in level conversion, so it's highly unlikely that I'll try it.
