    No compile error found by interloper, but no portal files.
    This map I am trying to compile is Muddy's swampcamp which I downloaded and put it in the sourcesdk_content/tf/mapsrc. But it gave 'The system cannot find the file specified' bullshit so I copied the bsp file into mapsrc folder too. Now its not creating any portal files.

    You have a missing instance, instances/koth_salt/capture_sign_red.

    The map didn't compile properly (because of ^^^), so it didn't generate a .bsp file.
