    I checked in alot of the spawn problems topics and everyone's problems seem to come in after compilation. I just started using Hammer, and I must be doing something majorly wrong, cuz I tried to compile the map and test a basic spawn room when it gave me the message:

    CModelLoader::Map_IsValid: No such map 'maps/Spawn.bsp'
    map load failed: Spawn not found or invalid

    Now, I think I did it right. I put it 2 spawns, one for Red and one for Blue using the entity info_player_teamspawn, then putting a Brush Entity called func_respawnroom, setting one side to red and the other to blue. I assume this should work right? I just wanted to make a basic spawn and I cant even do that D:

    Thanks for yalls time.

    What kind of errors do you get during the compilation?

    The compilation seems to go fine, but once the game loads and starts up the map, that message pops up and I dont know what to do from there. It wont load in the create a serve drop down box either.

    "CModelLoader::Map_IsValid: No such map 'maps/Spawn.bsp'"

    This looks like the .bsp was not properly saved, which would also explain why it doesn't appear in the list of maps. You can check this hypothesis by going to your tf/maps folder.

    Did you properly set your SourceSDK to Orange Box : TF2 ?

    Have you got a space in the file name?? that would screw it over since all map names can't have spaces in them.

    One was just named spawn.vmf, but it didnt go into my maps section of TF for some reason. Ill try compiling a room with just one word and see if that helps, but it saves the .bsp during compilation correct? or should I do it manually also.

    If it fails the bsp stage of the compile, there won't be a bsp. Look at the compile log window and see if anything stands out (Like a big ERROR message).

    You didn't answer this:
    Because if you didn't, it's going to be saved in some other place (HL2 directory for instance).

    I got it to work, I made a new map and also called it just spawn, and everything worked perfectly. Thanks for yalls help! Off to make a map! :):)

    EDIT: yeah I had it saved to Orangebox/TF2, It was just a simple stupid mistake by me I suppose XD
