Specifically, it searches for BSP nodes with dividing planes where Tool has incorrectly assumed that one side is "outside" the map and reuses the same child node for both sides of the failed node.
Ghostbuster is built on the Reclaimer python library.
You will need Python 3 to use this tool. Clone the repository from GitHub, or download
requirements.txt somewhere convenient. Install dependencies with
pip install --user -r requirements.txt.
Ghostbuster modifies BSP tags in-place unless the
-dryrun flag is added, so it is recommended to first backup the tag if it cannot be recompiled easily. From a command line:
python3 ghostbuster.py <path to BSP tag>
Due to rounding errors and the nature of how phantom BSP are detected, the script may report and "fix" a large number of false positives or miss some phantom BSP. This may cause collision holes where items fall through the map in the affected area.
