    One of my maps recently got a engine error while it was being tested. I've searched Google but I can't seem to find anything that goes over the error nor how to fix it. If anyone has any ideas, I would be very grateful.

    This is the error:

    Can you try Verifying Game Integrity? It probably came from a recent update.

    I think I may have figured it out. I either had displacements with vertices too close together OR my Trigger_hurts damage was TOO high. Don't know which but those are the 2 things I've recently found out that could cause this issue.

    "In contact with vdisp_0042" makes me think it's a displacement issue.

    What power are your displacements?

    Gibs are determined by physics, and Source doesn't like to do physics on power 4 displacements. My bet is that displacement number 0042 is such a displacement. Use the in-Hammer problem checker and it would probably point you towards this displacement.

    3. After asking around, Ynders had the same issues and he said it was due to setting trigger_hurt's damage values too high.

    And what damage-valu have you set?
