1. fs_basepath is hard coded in the editor... I'm working to bypass it now,
and I have, but there are other fish to fry as well.

2. JK2 is being patched in to the editor as I write, but the utilmate goal
here is not to add JK2... it's to add any and many Quake engine games. If it
takes time, it's beacuse the developers who have been here before me did not
have the time to do this and all the rest. Now before writing 1 single line
of code, I had to basically read all of it as well in order to understand
how the game interfaces into the editor.

It will be done as soon as it's done, but fear not, JK2 is here to stay, and
what I'm doing now will hopefully insure that something like EF2 is
functional in the editor the day it reaches the store shelves.
