    So question for you, what did you do to fix that? I'll update the readme file in the new download when I make it.

    Nothing changed. After the first proccess the file size stayed the same and after the second thing it once again doubled

    btw https://www.mediafire.com/file/xd3lco43u44ssrs/sv_nacht_der_untoten_rc1.bsp/file here is the bps file itself. I dont know if this is something affecting only me.

    I think that might cause issues elsewhere

    So something changed then. A repacked map being repacked again won't change in file size, but unpacking it, yeah, it will get bigger as it gets uncompressed.

    Could be an issue with the map itself. If it is unpacked and still not working, try looking at the SFM crash logs to see if any clues are given. I'm not too sure of the directory, although it could be /steam/dumps/, just look for the most recent file, I think it'd be a .mdmp although potentially something else
