    I was just making a map, when the map just stopped compiling! It only uses the map from the last time i compiled it! As far as i know, there's no leaks, and if there are, i made them before my last compile! I'm also pretty annoyed, because this is the second time this happens to my map.

    Here's my compile log:

    Your problem is an invalid brush:

    Brush 6998, Side 2: duplicate plane
    Brush 6998: FloatPlane: bad normal

    In hammer, go into the 'view' menu, and click on 'Go to Brush Number', and enter the brush number '6998', then delete and remake the brush. When using the vertex tool, you can easily make a brush invalid, so you may need to make a few brushes instead of just that one.

    Also, http://www.interlopers.net/errors would've told you the exact same thing.

    Guys, we NEED an integrated solution that checks for compile log errors, or something that detects whether a piece of text is a compile log. In this case Duck-Joke had to wait for almost 15 minutes before someone told him about the invalid brush while he would've figured it out in less than 10 seconds had he used the Interlopers error checker.

    I'm pretty sure they have an executable error checker somewhere on interlopers website. If someone could get it to automatically scan the compile log after every compile and alert you if an error was found, it would be great. However, I'm not smart enough to interface it with hammer.

    EDIT: It would probably be easier to just save the page as apparently that works as well.

    I'm talking about the TF2maps.net forum, not Hammer.
