    I'm getting these in my compile log, not sure what it means.



    "FindPortalSide: Couldn't find a good match for which brush to assign to a portal near (1718.1 1096.0 296.0)
    Leaf 0 contents:
    Leaf 1 contents: CONTENTS_SOLID
    viscontents (node 0 contents ^ node 1 contents): CONTENTS_SOLID
    This means that none of the brushes in leaf 0 or 1 that touches the portal has CONTENTS_SOLID
    Check for a huge brush enclosing the coordinates above that has contents CONTENTS_SOLID
    Candidate brush IDs: Brush 156852: "

    Show your whole compile log, this could be caused by a leak or other stuff.

    Or just enter it at 'lopers.

    The three causes that I know of are:
    - Leaks
    - Funky hint faces or hint faces that don't touch brushes/other hint faces on all four sides
    - Areaportal Leaks

    Well it's definantely not a leak, I put a skybox around the entire map and it still did it, im not using hint brushes and haven't messed with areaportals..... Based on that link you gave me , it can happen if your brush work is too complicated :x I have some complicated brush work in the map.

    Update: Apparently it was some brushes that somehow got off the grid that was causing it...... never seen that come up when stuff has come off the grid... I put the brushes back on the grid and the error hasn't come up on the compile log.
