    My info_player_teamspawn is an error

    Hi, I'm new to mapping so this might be a stupid question, but my info_player_teamspawn is an error. Also, said error refuses to rotate, so my team spawns are always facing in one direction. Is there anyone who knows how to fix this?

    I downloaded it and installed onto hammer, but when I try to open hammer I get two errors, saying that "tier0.dll" and "vstdlib.dll" were not found, and it keeps telling me to reinstall hammer. What should I do?

    MAX_MAP_BRUSHSIDES error on a decompiled map?

    I decompiled one of Valve's own maps to practice mapping on, but when attempting to compile, I receive the MAX_MAP_BRUSHSIDES error. I read that this could be caused by the original .bsp having split faces due to the VBSP, but there are existing edits of the same map. The map's information says...

    Strange "ink spills" lighting error

    When I compile a map, there's many strange and unexplainable lighting errors (which the VDC refers to as "ink spills"). Even with all of the final VRAD parameters, these errors remain.

    Are func_brush Detail props?

    I'm editing a map and got far too many func_details in it. I set some to func_lod so that the map can compile again, without the "Error! Too many detail props emitted on this map! (64K max!)n" in the compile log. The lods were glitching a lot however, getting invisible on some angle, even if...

    pl_upward_d won't compile

    I took a decompiled upward vmf and tried to compile it, but it wouldn't compile. I know there are a few leaks and issues with the area portals, but I don't think that should stop it from compiling. Here is the log: materialPath: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Team Fortress...

    Navigation mesh with bots crashes my game on my map

    One of my maps I am developing has a problem with the bots crashing the game after 5 minutes or so. I have no idea why because on my other map they seem to work fine. Any ideas to why this could be happening? I tried removing custom folder content which did nothing. Thank you!
