The sequel to Witchaven, Witchaven II uses similar formats and data to its predecessor, but adds a few new features such as weapon enchantment shrines and the improved BUILD v7 map format.
Some of these may only work if a specific version is used. The following tools are able to work with this game.

Fill in the rest of the files
- Unlike the first game, Witchaven II came with the BUILD map editor included on the CD.
- SMK files are usually played from the game CD. If the game is started with the LOCAL parameter, they will be played from the game directory instead and can thus be replaced in mods.
- The SMK files are version SMK2. Unfortunately, version SMK4 files (which are what RAD Tools makes) do not appear to work as replacements.
