    All I did was a few changes, added output to logic_auto of setredteamrespawnwavetime and blu and did a compile twice and when I go to load game, it's there in the list but when I click to run it, nothing happens. I stay on the same screen. The console command says unable to find map or invalid. I double checked and the map is there in the right locations. Like I said, I ran another compile and still nothing.

    I saved map as new name (b3) and still same problem. But I noticed in the console that it wants to load a different name


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


    I clicked on cp_shabbytown_b2, and then again cp_shabbytown_b3 so why is the game looking for cp_shabbytown ? I don't have a map named cp_shabbytown, only 2 maps, one with b2 and the other with b3.

    I get no errors when loading map in hammer. I closed down hammer and opened agian. Man this sucks.

    Here is the vmf, can somebody just download this and run a bsp compile only (takes 2 seconds) and see if they can load this map? I have no clue what is going on.

    Thanks


    I still think this has to do with TF2 trying to run a map that isn't there but the correct name is on the drop down list. Has anybody else ever had this and how do you fix it?

    This happens to me too for unknown reason AFAIK...


    I delete the old .bsp completely and recompile. You should try restarting steam also, if you haven't.

    I did delete the file and also restarted steam and everything. I found a workaround though. I just saved the map as that name is was looking for and it loaded it up fine. Then I quite game and loaded the other map names and then all of a sudden they worked.

    Just a wierd glitch - never seen that before.

    Thanks though. Glad to know I am not the only one who saw this.
