    Every time that I try to run one of my maps, I get this error in hammer: ("The command failed. Windows reported the error: "The system cannot find the file specified" Would you like to continue?") And when I try and run the map, it never loads. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also, I know that it's a day before Christmas, so sorry to bother anyone reading.

    1. Close every single program except for Hammer
    2. Alt-P, check for invalid brushes. Fix them.
    3. Change the file name of your map.

    this looks to be the issue:
    `Brush 39362: FloatPlane: bad normal
    Side 4
    Texture: TOOLS/TOOLSNODRAW`

    In the future you can use Interlopers error listing to search your compile log for errors and print them out in plain English for you.
    It's much easier than scouring through the errors and hoping you know how to read that specific error.

    I first ran into this error when I tried shearing a clip brush
    try running your map with clip brushes removed, and see if that helps

    vbsp chokes. The error is because hammer is too stupid to check if vbsp did it's job properly without manually being told how.

    Try disabling visgroups, and use the cordon tool to locate the problem
