    HI! I'm making a map, i think since july, or something like that. It always worked fine, when i made a new part of it.

    Today i worked on it too, i completed a lot of it, but when I tried to complie and run it said:

    Code:
    ** Executing...
    ** Command: Copy File
    ** Parameters: "C:\Games\SteamApps\<username>\sourcesdk_content\tf\mapsrc\pocokmap.bsp" "c:\games\steamapps\<username>\team fortress 2\tf\maps\pocokmap.bsp"
    
    The command failed. Windows reported the error:
      "A rendszer nem találja a megadott fájlt."
    Sorry, the 2nd line is in Hungarian, it means:

    Code:
    The command failed. Windows reported the error:
      "The System cannot find the file."
    It can't find the BSP file. I tried to find a button or something that says "complie to BSP" but i couldnt find anything. Since now the map worked fine, i just added to it some Displacements, set some of the lights' brightness lower, and added some Prop_static to the map, and I don't know whats the problem. Yesterday it worked fine, but today when I tried to complie, it codnt find the new version's BSP.

    What should I do now?

    Thanks

    Run BSP only and check it with interlopers checker.

    Keep the rage to a minimum.

    Your problem is you've got a displacement tied to an entity. Your map will fail to run at all in this condition.

    Sorry If i mean it wrong, but the problem is that a Displacement has a collision with an entity?

    No, you've made the displacement an entity. Like, you made the displacement, then you pressed ctrl+T and made it an entity, it can't be both or it won't work.

    Nah, Mangy! BSP can fail by many reasons, not just dispacement entity.
