Subject: [Gtkradiant] Creating a new game class in GtkRadiant

I'm working on an original game, using the latest source release of
Quake II Evolved as a code base. I need to create levels for this game,
but I can't find any documentation on how to create a new gametype for

For the time being, I've just left the Q2 structures intact, and use

GtkRadiant? I've tried straight up copying the config files for Quake 2
