    Hi.

    I'm trying to test my custom map, but it just keeps crashing after every single compile. I've fixed every leak and such. But it still crashes. I really have no clue what's the problem (however some have suggested it could be a logic error). I'd appreciate somebody can search through the map and determine what's the source of the problem so I can fix it, unless you already know the possible reason, then hit me up as well.

    You are doing a full compile correct? Everything set to normal? Alt-P in Hammer to check for problems.

    Yup, a full compile. The problem checker only says that there's no player start even though I set all the spawns...

    It's talking about info_player_start, the spawn entity used in singleplayer games (HL2). Just a legacy error you don't need to worry about.

    Anytime I've had this issue it was related to something important I forgot to check in the visgroups tab that I had turned off while I worked. Your compile log looks fine.

    The vmf is inside the rar. Extract it.

    When something doesn't work, I solve it Snowbat style: using the most radical and simple solution. I did what Muddy suggested and copied your entire VMF into a new VMF. In Hammer, open your "broken" map, select it entirely and copy it into a new one.
    I tried it and it worked.

    I'm sure you meant Lain. I forgot to mention that the problem is already solved. (By that method.)
